This is a hidden gem in Morro Bay. Friendly staff and good food. Not a suit and tie kind of place, but always a delight.

Nice atmosphere, great view of the harbor, fast friendly service. Great Clam chowder and bread. The prices were reasonable, at it is an easy walk to most of the hotels in the area.

Location is great, but the food is just the opposite. Be smart, DO NOT GET THEIR SPECIALS! The clam chowder was cold, the steak had more grisly then I have ever had, could not cut, cold not eat. The lobster was small and tasteless. The vegetables were overly undercooked. The best thing on our plates was the baked potato. The... More

Came here on a beautiful blue sky morning, for breakfast. We were ready for a delicious breakfast. Unfortunately it was not so good. It seems like they bought the cheapest food possible to prepare. I even asked the waitress if our orange juice was really in fact orange juice. It didn't even taste like OJ. Toast was made from cheap,... More

Their fish and chips did not disappoint. I was expecting more batter than fish, but unlike most restaurants, you get more fish and chips for your money. I would recommend ordering the 3 piece rather than the 5 piece, unless you're really hungry. The clam chowder was a little on the salty side, but I would still order it. As... More

Not a great experience, slow service, the waitress spent most of the time on the till. Took a while to get the first drink {only 7 other people in} Clamp chowder, very thick with very tough clam meat. Beer battered prawns, batter salty thick and not what I would call light. Cod was dry and over cooked, should have had... More

Location is excellent with outlook to Morro Rock. Food was very good but noisy drinkers at the bar spoiled the ambience.

The only redeeming features were the view and the fries. Unfortunately, the food was terrible. The fish tacos were dry and bland (shared with my bride); the onion rings overcooked on the outside, yet the inside was still doughy; our daughter's fish and chips were blah and very greasy; the Bloody Mary was watery and devoid of flavor; the table...

Talked with the owner for quite a bit and the wait staff where very personable. Food was great, so we went back the next morning for breakfast. What a deal, lots of food, awesome... More
