“Excellent View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Love this atmospheric wharf café and enjoy the food every time we pass through the area. Great thick rich clam chowder, great grilled crab sandwich and the coleslaw is excellent. We both enjoy sitting next to the window to watch the sea lions and our service has always been fast and friendly. Haven't tried anything fried this trip but it was good and not overly greasy last year. We will continue to return for the scenic view and the chowder.

“Plenty of Time to Spare..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

We visited this restaurant two nights running, but not through choice. We went with family and friends and they didn't seem to mind the slow service and rude waitress but being English we did.
The waitress was busy but we felt rushed to order and when my husband decided he would like a bowl of soup after seeing what it was he had to wait a while and then it arrived with all the main meals, including his.He asked politely if it could be taken and kept warm he didn't expect the waitress to just laugh, and when told it wasn't funny she told him he was rude and it was his fault for ordering his soup late. My husband still managed to say please and thank you which was more than the waitress did. The food was good enough but nothing spectacular.
Thankfully we will never have to go back there again.

Guess who didn't get a tip from us after the meal ?

“Spectacular Views ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Recommended by a local...located on the water with beautiful views of the harbor and boats. As we walked in we were greeted by Sea Lions! Wow that would've been enough however the food was delicious and the services was even better...I would definitely eat there again!

“Ok for fish and chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

We take some of our friends here because they like it a lot. Every time they come to town they have to go to Chart Room. Personally, I've had better. I do love it when you can get a window table and watch and listen to the Sea Lions.

“expect average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

most everything is deep fried, battered and a bit , well shoot for a prime location and great history you really should have the type of food to go along with all the potential . INstead, the flavor is more akin to fast food. I love the nautical atmosphere, love the location but the presentation of the food does not exist, the flavor is deep fried right out of what might have been fresh and the service again scored average. so target your expectations accordingly.
