We tried the Fish Hopper for lunch and it was the best meal I had in Monterey. The service was fantastic and the view from our table was great. I had a special, which was mussels, clams, crab, scallops, shrimp, all in a tomato based broth served with garlic bread. The flavor was amazing. My mouth is watering just typing this.

We were visiting Monterey and decided to have some seafood. Upon doing a quick google search, we immediately decided to go and try Fish Hopper. We reached there at around 12:50 PM on a Friday and were hopping for big lines. They did have lines however, we were on our seats within 5~7 minutes. Our table had great views of the bay. They have a ton of fresh seafood options with daily lunch specials. They also have kids menu options. We started off with some Original Mojito and loved it. It was not the best we have had, however a very close second. I ordered some Fish and Chips, wifey ended up ordering their Hopper Combo (Calamari, Popcorn shrimp etc). The food was alright, nothing extraordinary however their service was great. All said and done, we really enjoyed our lunch and had a great time.

Dinner was delicious. I had the grilled artichoke appetizer. It was unique and very good. Waited about 15 minutes for a table by the window. Well worth it as we saw a school of dolphins swim by.

The food was not the best I have ever had, but with all things considered, especially views of the bay, the meal was quite enjoyable. Attentive servers are always ready to meet your every demand.
