Stopped here after walking / biking Monterey. Good choices of local beers, and a good bar menu. I will be back here again.

The place is much nicer than it looks from teh outside. I thought it was going to be a dive bar from the look, but its is much more upscale inside.

Waitstaff were very friendly.

Great view, attentive and friendly service, then Prosecco followed by a salad of Ahi Tuna, Mango, Papaya, and 3 tasty Coconut Shrimp. I cannot recall enjoying a salad any more than I enjoyed this one. Simply superb!

They made one with Scallops for my wife who is allergic to Shrimp. Pictures are included to entice you.

I will always find time to visit this place when in Monterey, CA.

We enjoyed our dinner and drinks at the Fish Hopper on a recent trip to Monterey. The view was spectacular and the sea otters playing around in the water right next to our table provided great entertainment, especially to us east coasters.

The Fish Hopper Restaurant on Cannery Row is one of my favorites. You can sample their clam chowder before entering the restaurant or buy a walk away shrimp cocktail or any of their little appetizers and walk away and eat it while strolling the near by shops. When you enter they have samples of different menu items and drink they offer on the menu. Their menu has many choices. The clam chowder is to die for, especially the one in the bread bowl. They have a large selection of seafood and a variety of various other foods. But I go there for the seafood and or clam chowder. We travel 100 miles to dine with them on a
regular basis.

Ate outside with the family. We loved the food and the atmosphere. We watched otters swim and bask on rocks while we ate. Would definitely do it again. 3 of us had fish, my son had steak. All was good. We had a free appetizer but it was small. This was one of our favorite stops on vacation.
