Was here with a large group and they did a super job. Everyone at our table loved their food. We had fish and chips and cioppino (made with linguine noodles yum!). Servers were pleasant and bar tender attentive.

This restaurant is located at the end of the wharf and has a beautiful view, it also has a nice atmosphere and the service was good. We had the clam chowder and one entree with salmon, another with shrimp, both were served over linguini covered in cheese. The dishes were both were not that good and seemed to rely on cream and cheese for flavor rather than spices, we left feeling like we'd swallowed a few bricks...

First and foremost, this restaurant down at the end of the wharf has incredible views. That's reason enough. But beyond that, the staff was just great. We were in a hurry because we had a concert to attend and after letting our server know our situation - well, she was right on top of it. It took no more than 5 minutes from ordering to having our food on the table. Clam chowder, flavorful, creamy, no grit, A+. Quesadillas - maybe a little bland, but with a little hot sauce, just fine - nothing to like there. Clam strips and fries - hot, tasty, not greasy at all. Another A+. If you're looking for "fine dining", this is not your place, but if you are looking for a casual setting with an amazing view and a top notch staff that is ready to take care of you - look no further.

Well, this wasn't what we were expecting. It's a very small, fisherman style restaurant. There is not much parking and a little walk down the Wharf. The day we went they only had 1 server so the service was slow - not her fault since she was doing it all! Overall the place was quaint, the fish and chips and crab Louie was pretty good and enjoyed a few beers with our meal. The view was nice.

For our 30th anniversery, I thought that we would do something different. We drove over to Capitola and ate at the Wharf House. We got this thru a Groupon Coupon.

Once we got to the place our GPS said the restaurant was, we were in for a surprise. We had to walk on a pier about 150 yards, over the ocean to get to the restaurant. Once inside, it was warm place decorated for Christmas playing old music from the 40's.

The Waitress was very nice, the food was excellent. If this were during the day, we would have had a birds eye view of the Monterey Bay. You can eat ontop of the roof during the day.

This is definitely a great place to eat in Capitola
