I met an old friend there on Monday. She was craving claim chowder. I had the calamari steak sandwich. Both lunches good.

Good food. Fair price. We had calamari and fish baskets. Smoked salmon sandwich was amazing. So flavorful. Didn't remember to mention the order was to go and were left carrying baskets. Fast , friendly service. Perfect for lunch while walking around the Boardwalk and beach. Fun. Walk up fish window.

Located down at the end of the wharf, but the only place to have lunch, so find it. I have been coming here for many years...great clam chowder, but the fried calamari was excellent. Nice views over looking the ocean, can't get much better than this.

Just finished an extremely tasty bowl of chowder and enjoyed a strawberry Margarita made by Amada. It's worth stopping by for Happy Hour.

The food was good, the view was great, and the service was good. We took two young teens, who ate very well. It's a great family place.

This restaurant is located near the end of Santa Cruz pier. The service was great. We enjoyed the ocean view dining. My grand daughter enjoyed her fish & chips. Her friend liked her crab cocktail. I thought the clam chowder was bland & weak, not creamy & rich.

We stopped here for lunch and had the best experience! Our server, Renee was excellent! So friendly and nice! The clam chowder was amazing. My daughters ordered hamburgers and they were huge! We had a table with a view of the ocean and it was absolutely gorgeous. I only wish we lived closer to be able to back again. If... More

My family had a wonderful meal at Stagnaro's. The food was good, the beer was cold and the service was attentive. Very nice location out on the wharf. After you are done eating, make sure you check out the resident sea lions!!

Food was great. You can either take food to go and eat at one of the numerous tables on the pier or eat inside. Either way, the fish is fresh and wonderfully prepared. Highly recommend this place.

My family loves eating here after a walk on the pier. The food is nicely prepared and prices are comparible for quality seafood restaurants. On this visit we had our favorite Calamari Appetizer, lightly fried and full of flavor. We also had the Seared Sea Scallops, Oyster-on-the-Half Shell, and Crab Louie. Great meal and good time.

Thank albebuc
