Our wedding anniversary is in September. We traditionally go out of town and enjoy dining at a special place (at least 2-3 at various locations). In Morro Bay, we picked Windows. Our first visit. We were not disappointed. Prices are a little on the high...More

I had the scallops, which were served with some outstanding grits. Hubby had New York, which was tender and cooked to perfection. All the wait staff was friendly and helpful. We had a table by the window overlooking the rock and harbor. Gorgeous!

Food is good though a bit overpriced. My wife had the sand dabs and they were quite tasty. I had the scallops and they were nothing special. The clam chowder is really good. Decent wine selection. You really come here for the amazing view.
