The Fish Hopper has always been a great restaurant, but in their new location, it's even better. It's right on the Bay with floor to ceiling windows on three sides and wonderful views. When we were there, there was a sardine run, and the birds and fish were everywhere - so easy to see from where we were sitting. We... More

You cannot get a location with a better view than this- right on the water and almost every table has a beautiful ocean view. This was an extremely busy restaurant but the service did not suffer. Our server Cassie was attentive and offered great suggestions- I love a personable server! The food was amazing, the view was incredible, and I... More

This is a wonderful place to have dinner, as we did. The View is just spectacular, having sea Lions, sea birds, a whale and sailboats. Being local, we ordered from the special local's menu and all meals were terrific ~ highly recommending the Linguine & Clams. Came with great clam chowder or salad and yummy dessert. We also had a...

Our Uber driver recommended that we try this place. The service was spot on and the food was tasty! My boyfriend LOVED his clam chowder and fish & chips. He said they were some of the best he has ever had. My crab cakes were good as well (although I wish they had a dinner portion). We sat on the... More

This place almost has to many choices.. No real specialty and depend more on the quality of food they buy to really pull them along. I've been to a great many places and have found that it's not to difficult to make great food taste good. To make this as brief as possible I'll say that when you mix the... More

We went there for lunch with our 9 months old daughter. We tried the sardines which tasted really bad, then the chowder was average. The restaurant manager was complaining with another family in a table next to us because their children were making noise. He finally approached us and also complained about the noise our baby was making snd asked... More

We walked into the Fish Hopper expecting a rather tourist focussed restaurant. We were delighted with the interior, service, food and entire ambience of the restaurant. We arrived early evening and were offered a table looking out across the bay. We'd not even been seated before the waiter pointed out some whales to us, we had a lovely evening watching... More

I was there for Labor Day. The place is nice, staff is great. I order an Asian baby back ribs, it was good but it was a little cold. The clam chowder was delicious. My friend ordered a skirt steak and that was really good!!
