Just celebrated my husband's 80th birthday here. Their cioppino is excellent! Unfortunately, we didn't save room for one of their yummy desserts. Plus the staff is very friendly and efficient.

Enjoyed wine, beer and really good clam chowder at Happy Hour prices while enjoying a beautiful harbor view. Friendly and knowledgable servers ( Thanks Mark!) and rest of menu looks lovely.

The food was eh. My daughter & husband both order fish & chips. The fish was dry & favorless. I ordered the lobster tacos & not a lot of favor. The mixed drinks were very weak & unremarkable. I was disappointed in the food &...More

We went twice and enjoyed the food and the sunsets, sitting outside high above the harbour. We went just after happy hour so did not have a problem getting a table outside.

We made a reservation and it was worth it for the table we got and the view we had. The water was very attentive and even returned a bottle of wine that he said the cork looked suspect. Cioppino was most delicious and Moscow mules...More

I only eat lunch there. Traffic driving up from Carmel Valley is too great to mess with during the week. I don't know about a happy hr but I am sure a quick call will answer the question. Great place regardless.
