“best fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

This is on the pier in Santa Cruz. We enjoyed some fresh seafood and a great view. It is a nice sized place that has 2 levels. I love going to California for the fresh food and fabulous weather. If you are in the area, I recommend you stop in this place.

“Best Clam Chowder Around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Love this place and the clam chowder in a bread bowl. Looking for some fod that is filing and warns your gut. This is the place to go.

“best seafood at affordable prices with good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

while this restaurant does not take reservations we have never had much of a wait to get in and be seated, esp since they added an upstairs dining area. If you are tight for time then just use their outside fish market to place an order to go. Their calamari is some of the best in the areal and definitely order their clam chowder. We have done both--seated inside and walk and talk/eat on the wharf. This is not your fancy type of restaurant but clean and well managed. If you are coming to Santa Cruz for a vacation at the Boardwalk or just a daytime trip at the wharf, don't miss this eating experience.

“Stagnaro Bros: worth finding!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food here is pure and fresh sea food and local produce. The waiting staff is very professional. The clam chowder is world renowned. Whatever you do, don't go away without tasting their sour dough bread!

“your friends will love you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

end of the wharf venue. Get some lucious clam chowder and follow with a crab sandwiche or any of the other fresh fish. Santa Cruz is right on Monterey Bay. No place else like it. Don Slebir
