Every time we come up to Monterey, we visit the Fish Hopper. Always good food and service. The Bloody Mary’s are great! Grab a seat on the patio and enjoy the view and food. Heaters help when it’s cold. I recommend this place.

We had dabs and salads,very attentive service,nice view. Food was high-quality but you are paying a lot for the position. There are many less expensive places serving the same quality sea food.
