Most times, the service is good to adequate. Last time there the waiter was excellent. It sometimes seems to take a long time to get served but the food is very good.

The restaurant is in a great location, the view is fantastic! Food and service was mediocre, but priced fairly. I hope the staff was more attentive during our time there.

This place is almost like farm to table and/or sea to table being that we are in Watsonville (hello!) and it's proximity to the ocean. The vegetables are fresh and the fish can't be any fresher. Fast, great, friendly service accompanies a wonderful meal. So...More

Lori and I had dinner here on 5/19/17. Our meals were spectacular - and the server shift supervisor sort of 'saved the day' by waiting on us personally. While we were eating, about half of the servers seemed to be brand new and totally lost....More
