Big portions and you can get a drink, appetizer and a main course for under $20. Known for their French Dip which are very good. Beautiful spot on the water and you can sit outside if you like.. Quick service and a friendly staff. Will return.

Ate here a few years ago and since we were near by we decided to try it again and it did not disappoint. We had the Reuben and roast beef sandwiches, a side of fries, fish and chips, popcorn shrimp and clam chowder. It was a lot of food! The sandwiches are not skimpy on meat, loaded high and dipped...

If you are going for price then this is a good choice. If you want fabulous you may be disappointed. This is just a simple place with simple food, but the views are OK. I would recommend Dorn's over this place for about the same money.

We were greeted by the friendly order-taker and placed our order for two hand-carved roast beef dip sandwiches ($9.95). We found a table and the order was brought out. The sandwiches were huge! They were filled with delicious, tender meat and served with au jus! The menu offers a variety of items, such as burgers, chicken and seafood sandwiches, as... More

The broiled calamari steaks were great. Skip the roll for max flavor. The side salad includes assortment of ingredients you get to choose. Clam chowder was good. Also had a side of bratwurst and kraut that hit the spot. Others got the large shaved steak au jus that is featured. Four or five draft beers available. Nice view but no... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and beat the crowd. Ordered a roast beef sandwich, hamburger and onion rings. All were terrific. The staff were friendly and helpful with our questions. I was disappointed that the deck was not opened, but they were doing some construction. We were able to watch a few Sea Otters from the window enjoying... More

While down exploring the beach and Morro Rock in the rain I decided that it was time to get out of the rain and have some lunch. I came in and had the fish and chips and a big beer. Pretty simple order and tough to screw up. The fish was good and cooked well, it seemed that my basket... More
