This restaurant has prime location on the wharf with a nice view of the bay if you're sitting on the patio. Our server was adequate, nothing over the top, but helpful in terms of choosing a beer. Our food came in good time. The fish and chips were touted on the menu as being the best in the county and they were good, but not fantastic. The breading on the fish was not overpowering. My spouse had the bangers and mash; the sausages had a nice flavoring, the potatoes were nothing special.

Dropped in last week with the family for dinner.
We waited almost an hour for fish&chips before finally getting up and leaving without eating.
The waitress never came over to explain why things were taking so long.
Never experienced anything like this at any restaurant before.

Saw this on Fisherman's Wharf, and we thought it would be nice to sit by the water and enjoy some drinks and appetizers. When we walked in, we were told to sit anywhere we liked, and someone would come help us, but after 20 minutes, I don't think a single person even glanced our direction. There were only a few other tables of people outside and inside was even less crowded, so the lack of service was inexcusable. We saw 3 different workers outside, and they just kept skipping over us, even after we tried to get their attention. Who knows about the food since we were apparently invisible!

Walked down the street to Crown and Anchor where our food and drinks were actually in front of us in less than 20 minutes!! Much better atmosphere - I would recommend anyone looking for a pub-type feel to head there instead.

Friendly service and good food. Great spot for lunch by the marina. The bread bowl of chowder and the crab cakes were fantastic

We went to Fisherman's Wharf to try a restaurant noted on TripAdvisor. The restaurant was closed. So we went around the corner and tried this one. My husband is a Brit and he thoroughly enjoyed the bangers and mash--so much so he had it the next night as well. I had the Calamari steak--it was prepared piccata style. Incredibly tender and delicious. I, too, had it the second night. calamari steak seems to be a Monterey specialty--other cities seem to serve the rings. Service was professional and efficient. Our server put the hockey game on for us when we asked. We will certainly go back if we are in the area again.
