Arrived in Morro Bay after a very early start driving from LA. Walked down to the waterfront from our hotel (Best Western Tradewinds) about 4 pm, looked at menus of several places facing the Rock. Prices at Great American Fish Company were most reasonable for a nice sit-down meal facing the bay, and we were delighted with the senior menu and prices -- grilled red snapper for $12.50! Fish was cooked perfectly, and our server Alisha A. was a delight. The view of the Rock and bay was lovely; 2 hours later, everything was covered by the fog. Delicious meal, lovely setting, and great prices.

It might sound strange to eat Steaks in a fish restaurant, but we were hungry for meat!

Our waiter was extremely pleasant and very knowledgeable. He even became somewhat of a Morro Bay tour guide by giving us all kinds of tips on what to do.

As soon as we walked into the restaurant we saw the open kitchen with the charcoal grill in the center. Perfect for steak grilling. We had the filet mignon and ribeye. Both were delicious and juicy, The filet was bacon wrapped which give it extra flavor. We ordered some BBQ oysters as an appetizer, and they were delicious as well.

The restaurant is overlooking the bay and has great views of Morro Rock. We saw Sea otters and seals swim by to say hello ;)

I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back in July!!!

Salmon grilled to uniform doneness and not dried on the ends. Service was prompt and attentive but not intrusive.

The Great American Fish Company had the best calamari steaks we've had in the area. They melted in my mouth. The old fashioned restaurant decor is part of the charm of a fishing village like Morro Bay, even though I usually prefer a more updated look.
