With an amazing bay view this restaurant was great, friendly staff with a great atmosphere. The seafood was some of the best we had in California and we sampled lots.
Reasonable priced too...

I ate lunch here on a whim and am glad I did. The location and food was excellent. I had clam chowder and a mahi mahi fish sandwich with iced tea. The server was very attentive and I just relaxed and had a good time. I highly recommend the clam chowder.

We were on a trip to CA and had not been in Monterey for over 5 years. We looked at the reviews and after eating at a number of restaurants...supposedly better...landed at Fish Hopper...what a great experience. The waiter was very helpful and professional...assisted us on deciding on some great specials including a Mahi Mahi and a local fish selection that we're prepared by a real chef...hard to find these days. The sauce that accompanied my dish was not packaged but specifically mastered for my dish fully complimenting not only the fish but the entire meal. I wish we could eat there every week.

This meal was great. Not just the food, but the atmosphere and the waiters as well. The clam chowder was great. In our party, we had the Stuffed Halibut and the Lobster Dinner. They were both awesome! The wait staff was awesome, they were each right on top of everything. I would definitely recommend Fish Hopper in Monterrey.

We ate lunch at Fish Hoppers today and we were more than disappointed. We both had fish & chips, supposed to have been Pacific cod. However, it was worse than fish stix from the freezer -- dry, overlooked and not much thicker. Two thin slices of lemon, barely enough to get juice from and the fish was sitting on a pile of dry (and dried out) shredded cabbage! Most unappetizing, especially when we looked up from our table, out to sea, only to see an orange and white striped awning covered with about 3 inches of bird poop facing us! More than a little unappetizing! With all the good restaurants in Monterey, this is one to avoid.
