We went to Mission Ranch to get a sampling of Clint Eastwood style. I loved the demure ambience, it was a quiet location but within the restaurant the piano was playing and people were enjoying the view of the farmland and the sheep hanging out and just taking in all that was there. I had a marvelous steak meal and found the clientele to be upscale, well dressed folks and business casual attire. It was a relaxed interior and it felt very homey, open and airy. We enjoyed our visit to the ranch and I did take a picture of Clint Eastwoods chair....they are all his, aren't they? very exciting to be in his restaurant.

We only went to the Mission Ranch for a few drinks before heading to our restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf. The Piano bar was very busy and we enjoyed the music. Great views from the bar and the place was very busy. Wish we had stayed for dinner as our meal on the Wharf was pretty poor.

We did not eat here, we stopped by for a drink, although the food that was being served looked great.

There was a piano player which gave a great atmosphere, along with the fantastic views.

Besides having an incredible, peaceful view, the food is outstanding and very reasonably priced. We ordered, for two, the tomato mozzarella salad to share (slightly flavorless so we added salt and pepper), a ranch cut prime rib (ENORMOUS for the price and cooked to perfection - would consider sharing this in the future) that came with a twice baked potato (so flavorful) and asparagus, the sea scallops with polenta and spinach (perfect size for an average hunger), and for dessert the coconut ice cream) and pecan pie. Everything food wise was outstanding. We were seated outside and were glad we brought thin sweaters but I didn't need mine once the space heaters were turned on. The only drawback is that the outdoor tables are lit with candlelight so it can make it difficult to see your food once it gets dark and the sun sets. Oh, and the sunset from the deck is a spectacular sight, so go for dinner.
