Not too "bready or cheesy" My sweetheart had the fresh fish special of Sea Bass -it was perfect. The mushroom appetizer is more of a side dish but delicious and the side dish of... More

Dropped $50 for lunch with my wife and ordered fish and chips. Fish was quite overdone, have had better catfish fingers in Florida at a much lower price. For that kind of money I expect it done right.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't love your fish and chips this time. We're always happy to make changes when concerns like this are brought to our attention. Next time, let us know if we need to make accommodations and we'll happily do so. I hope to have another chance to prove that we can get it right next time.... More

Spent the weekend for a quick getaway in Cambria. This restaurant was within easy walking distance from the hotel. Although somewhat pricey, the food and drink were excellent. I had the seafood pasta, which included A LOT of various seafoods; clams, mussels, shrimp, scampi. The sauce was very light. My wife had the grilled salmon, which was very lightly smoked.... More

this local restaurant has some great eats and even better views. This is a child friendly place with comfortable outdoor shaded seating. The wait can be lengthy, averaging about an hour for outdoor seating on a beautiful day outdoors. Food is reasonably priced and delicious. I will be returning!

We were staying just 3 minutes walk away and this place had been recommended so decided to have our evening meal there. It has a cosy feel to it, reasonable in price and the staff were friendly and on the ball. We started off with clam chowder, quite thick but really tasty - we actually picked some more up on...

After a long walk along the boardwalk on the cliff, a big bowl of hot clam chowder was a big hit! Thick, rich, and l-o-a-d-e-d with clams. We have never been disappointed with our stops here for lunch or dinner
