We were the only ones there which made me a bit wary. Had an omelette and breakfast burrito. Both were great, best breakfast on the trip. Service was fine, given we were alone most of the time.

This the second worst restaurant that I have ever been to in my life. Not clean. Absolutely the worst service ever. I checked on my order twice. Twice the the same person I ordered from lied and said they were cooking my food right then. When I started to make a scene after waiting 45 minutes for a burger, they... More

It doesn't get any worse than this. From the roach we saw crawling up the wall while we were ordering to the unbelievably sour nasty attitudes of the girls behind the counter taking our order to the absolutely Un-eatable food here, this was absolutely one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had!!! The burger (see pictures) looked like... More

Came in for late breakfast around 11:00am. Breakfast supposedly served until 2:00pm so the sign outside said. Ordered the Archie breakfast, 2 eggs, potatoes & toast. Bacon was extra. The "country style potatoes" were dry, overcooked, burned, obviously reheated from another day - too dry to swallow even loaded with ketchup. Bacon was not bacon strips but greasy pieces of... More

Visited here for breakfast 5-22-16. I noticed Archies was under new management, if you want to call it that. I do not know where to begin with this review as this is the worst breakfast I have eaten in a restaurant in many many years.I have lived here for 57 years and have eaten at the old Archies many times,...

We found this place by accident while driving through the little town. The server was very friendly and knew the menu/ingredients... I have wicked food allergies and she knew all the ingredients to all I asked. This is unusual, so I was very much put at ease. The food itself was fantastic. Great prices, great service...:)

Archie's is convenient to the Aquarium and the sea-walk. Ambiance is spacious and colorful with huge windows and views of Monterey Bay. Archie's has a huge menu, is family and kid-friendly, and all items are reasonably priced and not expensive. Food is okay to good. Service is good to not-so-good, depending on how busy they are. Good for a quick... More

This restaurant is right next to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the outlet stores. I was seeing the sights on Cannery Row and decided to stop here for lunch. This is one of those restaurants that you order your food before you sit down and then they bring your food when it is ready. It looked like there are only... More

Unfortunately even though the restaurant was probably only 1/3rd full when we went for an early lunch, their light staffing (1 person working the kitchen/grill?) meant they didn't even take our order at the counter for about 10 minutes (we were first in line). Nor was their counter-service particularly good -- while we waited, they didn't even look at /... More
