We ate brunch here on a Monday morning. The servers were attentive as it was not very busy. Ordered the country benedict and it was good although the gravy was pretty bland. The sausage and homemade biscuit saved it. The home style potatoes were good although not very warm. The huevos rancheros we ordered were good. Overall, nothing overwhelming and... More

How can you not love this place with the views that are on offer. The staff are very nice and the food is of good quality. The only "problem" I'd say is that they don't stay open long enough (closing on a Sat night at 7.30pm). Other than that I would recommend it. Just get there early and enjoy the... More

My wife and I went for a lunch time visit and tried the lobster bisque and a shared salad, which we both thought was fairly ordinary, even although the restaurant has apparently won awards for its bisque!

From our seats in the window, facing the boats bobbing in the harbor, Morro Rock and the sunset - to the delicious meal and super-friendly staff, it was a great casual dining experience. I enjoyed the Chicken Piccata (freshly sauteed veggies along with a nice pasta side and side salad), my dining companion had the meatloaf sandwich. A couple of... More

This was a fantastic restaurant, and one of the best from our trip. We were initally not sure about going in as it looked really quiet whilst the other restaurants around it were all bustling, however we didn't need to worry at all - and it soon filled up! The staff here were lovely and probably the friendliest from our... More

We had the fruit and cheese plate and cocktails. Big platter and the view is awesome. We saw sea lions and watched boats going in and out of bay. Staff was very friendly and prices were reasonable.

First stop on our road trip and I wanted a place where I could dine with a view of the Morro Rock and hopefully catch a nice sunset. Well I got both here. Get there about 5:30 at the latest. Word is out about this place and can get crowded, cannot imagine how it is during the summer. We both... More

Yep - will say it again - Great menu and a helpful and friendly staff. The food was delicious. Outdoor seating provides a beautiful bay view. The staff is both friendly and helpful. What more could you want? Well worth a visit (or two)

Spectacular views and outdoor tables make this "Bistro on the Bay" a perfect spot to relax, enjoy a latte or organic coffee and hot breakfast.Breakfast is served all day. In addition to the indoor seating, there are 18 outdoor waterfront tables to enjoy watching the seals, otters, pelicans and other nature as well as watching the sailboats drift by. There is soothing live weekend entertainment in the morning and it gets a bit kicked up in the afternoon during happy hour and they have their own house wine among a great wine list. The scene is gorgeous and a glassed in area is provided to enjoy the outdoors when it is windy. Sunset is beautiful from this location while dinner is served. Fresh local seafood is the main dish along with pastas and fresh salads.
