KEEP WALKING! This place is awful. My wife, son and I went here for dinner while in Monterey on 4th of July, and regretted it the rest of the night. There is a woman outside basically calling folks over to come and join them for dinner. Granted, we got suckered because we had just arrived in town, and we’re very hungry. We sat at their one table outside the restaurant, so we had to listen to her cat-call possible customers all through our dinner. By the end, it felt more like a used-car lot – she was making deals with passer-bys by offering 10% off their check, or promising a water view table, even if one wasn’t available, and then scrambling with the owner so she could keep her promise. She advertised the clam chowder, saying it wasn’t like anything else ‘you’ve tried, I guarantee it’ – but of course, offered no explanation as to what made it different. Personally, it tasted like canned soup to me; having a bowl of “real” clam chowder at Rosine’s later in our visit, and then another bowl at Cioppino's in San Francisco later in our trip showed me there was nothing else like theirs, because no one else’s was terrible. My wife’s salmon had bones throughout, and my son’s cheeseburger was cold, and the bun was too hard for him to bite. I had the prawns and chips, and there was zero seasoning. Do yourself a favor and keep walking, don’t get sucked in to the ‘come one, come all’ atmosphere where they try to grab any and every customer possible, and serve VERY unimpressive food. Oh yeah, they also advertised a ‘free’ calamari appetizer, but have NO INTENTION of providing it to you unless you remind them … our waiter told us that priceless tidbit. STAY AWAY!
