My wife asked a local police officer as to lunch options and we were given GREAT advice; on the water of the Steinbeck Plaza and we were treated to awesome views, service, and waterfront views. Our waiter, Chase, recommended a fabulous dish [my best meal in the two weeks visiting this coast] locally sourced red fish, prawns [shrimp for us east coasters] ravioli in a light cream sauce. It was of the right proportion, VERY flavorful and filling. If I didn't have a flight to catch, I’d be going back...until next time.

Get there early, if it’s a nice day get a seat outdoors, and enjoy. Quick service, delicious food, great location. Calamari were very good, not great. But stuffed sole and Monterey special were outstanding.

Near the aquarium and overlooking the Monterey Bay, a good location for lunch unless you seek a quiet restaurant. We grabbed a high top table in the bar area but still could see plenty of sea. A crazy drink is made here with flames and four shots of various liquors and flavoring. It is called bucket of fire.

HUGE menu, so many choices...seafood, seafood and everything else. Dress warm, as you're seated over the water with panoramic views of the bay. Food is good.

Consistently good food and first stop when taking visitors out to eat on the bay. Heated dining deck on the water. I think all tables have a water view with banquettes at the back raised to afford a view. They do sand dabs and calamari right! Try the Bucket of Fire cocktail to share if you don’t go with the wine selection. Downside is restaurant caters to adults, doesn’t allow strollers and not little kid friendly, although we have taken visiting toddlers.
