Pricey but worth the money. Attentive service. Food was hot and tasty. Try the chowder bowl , greaaaat. Easy parking and entrance is on stairs or from motel nextdoor.

We were glad to have made a reservation as it seemed very busy with a pre Christmas rush. Lovely sauces on the seafood. In our opinion one of the tastiest meals we have had in the area. Highly recommended!

This is right off the 1 where all the hotels are, in the parking lot of the Comfort Inn (where we have stayed before.) Great food, never very crowded, very enjoyable--we have been there several times now and have not been disappointed once. Great seafood!

The food was delicious - I had the crab cakes and they were very filling and tasty! My friend has roasted red pepper soup and she also enjoyed it thoroughly! Oh, and the Hearst Chardonnay was amazing as well...

Next to our motel and on a chilly, foggy, Monday evening we gave it a go. Slightly upmarket in feel and price. The food and service was very good. Wine was on the high side given we are close to the California wine areas? The...More
