We so much enjoyed the breakfast here. Not only was the food good, the food came quickly. A bus boy was always circulating to refill water and collect dishes. We will definitely go there again.

We had a very nice lunch and ate on the patio. Great views of Morro rock and the ocean. The food was very good and the service was good also.

I only had a glass of wine one afternoon but was able to sit in the sun on the outside deck, which had a view of the bay and the rock. They had a nice wine selection.

The first thing to enjoy here is the ambiance, thanks to a great location overlooking Morro Bay and decor that is just right for a seafood restaurant. We began with their excellent warm sourdough bread along with a cup of clam chowder and mixed green...More
