Location is excellent with outlook to Morro Rock. Food was very good but noisy drinkers at the bar spoiled the ambience.

The only redeeming features were the view and the fries. Unfortunately, the food was terrible. The fish tacos were dry and bland (shared with my bride); the onion rings overcooked on the outside, yet the inside was still doughy; our daughter's fish and chips were...More
