“Great Mini Golf Course”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Oceans 18 Blacklight Miniature Golf located in the American Tin Cannery is a fun course for the entire family. Challenging, yet fun and it is inside, so no problems with the weather.

“Tired and unemotional- to be avoided”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

This place looks like an unloved and failed venture... many of the shops appear to be permanently closed, and they have the look of being unoccupied for a long time.

I wouldn't make a point of going here- it's not really an attraction.

I'm confident that if you are looking for a bargain, there's a more attractive outlet mall to satiate your hunger for bargains!

“Great deals to be had”
Reviewed June 1, 2011

I always love to visit the Bass shoe store on my trips to Monterey/Pacific Grove because they always have such great deals on amazingly comfy shoes.

Note about the parking lot behind the ATC 2 hrs validation from a stamp at a store, 3 hrs validation from the restaurants. We almost had to pay their crazy prices, (hiked up to scare people from using the lot to go to the Aquarium and not even shopping at the stores) because I got my ticket validated at Bass and not at the restaurant.

“Candy World sells stale candy!”
Reviewed April 9, 2010

Candy World, located at the American Tin Cannery in Pacific Grove, CA (within walking distance from the Monterey Bay Acquarium) is a large, very appealing candy store with a huge selection. The barrels of taffy in every flavor you can imagine, plus snack size pieces of novelty candies that I grew up with, made it a fun store to browse and pick a few pieces. The trick on customers is that they purposely do not post the price per pound on the bulk candy. You find out when you go to the register and learn that they charge $13 per pound. So my few pieces cost me $6.50, quite a expensive for what I got. Plus, half the candy was stale, quite a rip off. You will be better off going to nearby Safeway or Nob Hill foods than to purchase at this place.

“Beware Of Parking Lot Rip-Off”
Reviewed June 27, 2009

This once thriving outlet shopping center now consists of less than six stores. And to top it off please read our experience when we parked in their lot.

On June 02 at 9:55 a.m. we entered the ATC lot and an attendant placed a parking ticket under our wiper, handed us a yellow form and advised us that we would receive 2 hours free parking upon a validation stamp provided by an ATC merchant. Signage affixed to the building also confirmed the 2 hour validation credit.

After making a purchase at the Van Heusan store we had our yellow stub stamped by the sales associate. We exited and stopped at the attendants station at 1 p.m. for a total of three hours parking.

We presented our validated stamped parking stub to the attendant and expected to pay for 1 hours parking. The attendant (same person that checked us in) asked "did you eat at First Awakenings?" we replied that we had not. He then stated that "well I'm going to have to charge you $12 for parking." We paid the $12 as requested.

Apparently the only merchant that the parking attendant recognizes for the 2 hour free parking is "First Awakenings." We were quite surprised and disappointed to be charged $12 for the privilege of using the merchant lot after we had patronized the outlet stores.

We were led to believe that we would receive a 2 hour free parking credit if any of the ATC merchants stamped the back of the yellow parking ticket. Apparently it's up to the parking attendants discretion.

We contacted the facilitiy property management company via email with our concern. No response was ever given.
