This is the second time visiting this place & both times the food was not good & the service was even worse. If your looking for a great view of the Monterey Bay then this is a good place but if your looking for great food & great service then this is not the place you want.

This was the perfect venue from which to enjoy the view of Monterey Bay; seals frolicking, pelicans swooping by, and picturesque sailboats nearby. This restaurant is at the very end of the wharf and enjoys an unparalleled unobstructed view. Most of us ordered fish & chips ($14.95), and wished we had split the meal, it was so plentiful. We took most of it home. Our server, Nicholas, was charming and attentive. This turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Monterey.

We worked our way down the wharf with nearly every restaurant set up outside with samples and varying offers. This was the last on the row, had the best view and we were just too tired to go any further. Lucky choice, all the offers made to us by the outside maître d' were honored, food was good, not the best I've ever eaten, but good. The prices are reasonable for a tourist location, wine list was adequate and as I said, the view at sunset was very nice.

We went in here because of the location. The food was ok, but that was it. The service from our waitress was very good, but it was a quiet mid afternoon and they decided to sweep up around! They made need to get ready for the evening but it wasn't very welcoming.

Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey is pretty competitive when it comes to luring guests into their restaurant. Before entering we were shown a menu with a number of dishes and then given a coupon for a free appetizer. They also advertised a draft beer for $4/ pint. Once inside we were informed that the draft beer was no longer available and that we would be looking at 12 ounce bottles for about $6/ each. A conversation with the manager brought no relief or concession of any kind. The menu shown at the door was apparently a locals only menu for which we had to specifically ask for from our server. The appetizer arrived after the main course and had been sitting around so it was cold. Sending it back to the kitchen it came back after a visit to the micro wave. The food was decent but really not worth the hassle.
