My hunch is most of the customers here are one timers hungry after going to the aquarium. I had a cup of clam chowder that I suspect was from a can and a Monterey chicken sandwich. The bacon had a strong burnt flavor that stayed...More

I'm all fairness, we visited on thanksgiving day and they were understaffed. The food was adequate, but not special in any way. The location is great and we will try again in the afternoon as it looks like they may have a good taco menu....More

Went here on a Sunday afternoon at 2pm and it was empty. That should tell you something. The food was okay, but nothing to write home about. For what we got, I'd say it was overpriced - but then anything in the area is going...More

Have for years made this a stop for a nice burger lunch. Not anymore. Used to be my wife and I could split a burger and feel full. This time the meat paddy was about half the size of what we've had in in the...More

Kids wanted burgers! Went for lunch and it was pretty good! Husband and I had salads which were ok. Kids enjoyed the burgers and fries! Beer on tap so A in our books!

Came here with 21 adventure scout boys. Choose this place because it was listed as a "cheap eat" and online prices were within our budget. Once we got here, the in-store sign prices were $3 to $5 higher per item than online!!!

We went in for lunch on a weekday. The place looks rundown but we gave it a chance. Several items on the menu were not available. We decided on fish and chips and fries. The food was OK, but a little pricey for what we...More

Those recent negative reviews are completely different from our experience this morning. Excellent food (I had the Castroville omelet with artichokes), fine service, served up fast. There was even music playing in the background, in sharp contrast to what one review suggested. We enjoyed it...More

Unfortunately, like the American Tin Cannery, this restaurant has lost its drive and purpose. The food used to be excellent and the atmosphere was fun and exciting. There used to be cool 50's music playing, paper and crayons for the budding artist, clean, well stocked...More
