Burgers are big and fries one is enough for two people, just a little pricey pay parking right in front and close to pier

Super value and no wait for a table.Local wines on the menu were a treat for us out-of-towners. We feed a family of 5 with three hungry teenagers for under $100 including a tip. That's success!

The food tasted great but getting to it was difficult. Husband had a lovely looking burger but it was too big to pick up. Ended up eating it with a knife and fork. Staff friendly but we were asked about 5 times if everything was okay. Not easy to keep replying if you are trying to eat! Also we were... More

We have arrived very late to Prismo beach so our options for dinner (9:30 pm) were limited. After some search we have arrived at Alley Cats, which is a burger restaurant. We have ordered a Chili and an Don Hu Burger. The Chili was so spicy, that we could not finish it. The burger was great, tasty and I would... More

My husband and I both ordered the fish and chips which were very tasty and the servings were quite large. Neither of us could finish our basket of fries . It was also fun to sit in the out door seating to still have the out door atmosphere

The fish was fresh, sushi rolls were some of the best I've had (and that's saying a lot), Saki was perfect, friendly young owners, friends at the bar and musicians nice to talk to - it's a great laid back place to hang out with friends.

After getting excited about the opportunity to have jazz and Cajun food in the same place, I was sadly disappointed when I was brought the menu which revealed that the name of the restaurant has changed (same owners) and is now a sushi restaurant. The food is unremarkable and overpriced. I don't recommend and will not return.

The unprententious atmosphere is a disguise to the great food and ambiance. The chef provided culinary delights in both taste and presentation at a great price. The cajon shrimp was delicious and worth a try. We were there on Saturday when they provided live jazz and the musician was both talented and entertaining. The restaurant welcomes you and the entertainment,... More
