I've been a customer since 2015 as my son attended CSUMB. Many Sundays were spent catching up over cioppino and oysters Rockefeller! The oysters were bland, and drink service was slow. Always a great view but not always great food!!

Was a really nice place to eat. Accommodated our family with two small boys, one in a high chair. Not all of the restaurants on the wharf will do that.views were beautiful even in the dark.

Sitting here right now and I just finished my lunch Clam Chowder bread bowl . It was excellent. Restaurant is on Fishermans Wharf, so you get a water view too.

There are a lot of options to choose from on the menu, but they all end up tasting somewhat similar. My husband and I both thought the food was "fine", not fantastic. Our server wasn't great as he didn't tell us the specials, brought our...More
