My Wife and I made a chance stop because it just looked "right" for some relaxed dining. Great choice! I had the blackened fish sandwich, fries, and she had the Baja Tacos... just great! Nice staff... lightning quick service and a great atmosphere!

I have been a customer at this establishment for over 30 years. Good food, terrific harbor views and indoor and outdoor seating. Music on the weekends. I recommend their microbrews with your food.

Good selection of beer and great location give this place everything it needs. We stopped here for a beer while waiting for our boat to leave the harbor, and it was a perfect spot to enjoy some company with friends and kill some time.

There is a hotel next to it, but I can't recall its name. We visited twice but stayed in Pacifica.
