I went there with my boyfriend on our first romantic lunch in Monterey - the ambiance is fabulous with very nice views. You must try their Clam Chowder! The food is a bit pricey for the quality but I guess you will pay if you want the view!

Ate there for dinner with the extended family after a day touring the aquarium. They offered a free taste of the clam chowder outside, which was good enough to get us in the door. It was very busy and loud but fun. The service was friendly but sometimes a bit forgetful. The place is very touristy but you know that before going in. What surprised me the most was the quality of the food. The chowder was great, but the macadamia crusted halibut was outstanding. My wife had the crab ravioli which was very fresh and light - also better than expected. Even my son said that his spaghetti and meatballs was delicious. This place was not fancy and not cheap, but I would certainly come back next time I'm in town.

We stopped here after spending a couple of hours at the aquarium. Had lunch out on the deck. Tables were a little crowded but service was excellent and food was very good. Great place to chill out on a beautiful day.

Romantic couple trip. I have never tasted fried calamari so good!! Freshly picked from that very same bay! Not the frozen rings you see in chains. Thick crispy batter NOT greasy at all. Never seen something like this before. Had a wonderful view at sunset. Shared a nicely portioned Macadamia crusted halibut. Yummy! Topped w a bubbly to celebrate, couldnt be more perfect!
