The fish here was cooked perfectly. The food was excellent, and the wait staff was friendly and pleasant. This was our favorite restaurant in Catalina. Be prepared though, that it is basically a bar. We still brought our teenage daughters there for lunch two days anyway, and the crowd was mostly families at that time of day. Not having read about it in Trip Advisor before our trip, we probably would have just walked by it because it looks like any other bar. A block off the main promenade, it is not on the water, but the food is really really good here, and very reasonably priced.

Four of us had lunch there on a Sunday. Had to wait awhile for a table but worth it. A small very informal place. All lobster meat and a good wine list too. Catalina Island is like the Mediterranean without leaving the country.

We had heir clam chowder, lobster tacos, and crab cakes. They were all delicious, but the crab cakes were a little to spicy for us. I also had their strawberry Cosmo, which was great!

My husband and I both had the locally caught fish for dinner. Totally delicious! The service was excellent. They had a decent wine list too!
