Didn't think much of this overpriced dive. Fish tacos were very over seasoned with asian slaw- couldn't even taste the fish. My husband's fish was good but the "chips" lacked in quanity- about 7 fries total. The kids ordered burgers and they looked and tasted terrible. Way overpriced. Go to Seapal instead- you will pay half the price but be pleasantly surprised.

Menu had good variety of fish specialties. The food was tasty. I was quite pleased that we found a high quality restaurant that was dog friendly. The weather was great too. We sat outside on the rugged deck with our dogs and enjoyed the view.

Unfortunately, this new location must also mean new management. The current restaurant is a poor imitation of the previous one. The location on the Noyo Harbor affords a lovely view of the water and outside patio seating is available. However, the plastic chairs are old and stained, the mismatched tables are peeling and in need of paint, and just a few of the tables have umbrellas. If you choose to eat inside, be prepared for blaring cantina music. The one young waitress was slow and unsure of the menu. The small prawn salad had only 4 prawns - absolutely tasteless. The rest of the salad, a boiled egg, slices of avocado & cucumber was just okay. This for $15. Fresh bread used to be a signature dish. Today the bread was warm, smashed down and probably sliced with a table knife. The wine list is extensive $7 to $10/glass. If I ever returned, which I won't, I'd request the bottle be opened and poured at the table. Wine glasses are thick, Rite Aid variety and the cutlery is prison grade.

This place is at the end of harbor near the warf in an area that seems old and neglected.
The restaurant itself is an older building and on the small side.
On the plus side, the food is quite good as is the service.
The menu is primarily Italian and sea food.
