I have always been treated so well here even when I dine alone. They have a senior menu with great choices! Lovely views of the harbor. I return each time I visit Morro Bay.

We never go to Morro Bay that we don't eat at the Great America Fish Co. There food and service is always great. We've been coming here for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience.
