We loved the calamari! Great beer too. My daughter had hot chocolate and she loved it too. Very quick and courteous service.

If you need a quick bite and are in the area. Solid fish and chips. Quick and attentive service in a bar atmosphere. Not amazing but good in a pinch.

Went here for a later lunch. Food was ok, but felt we were forgotten. Everyone else had food served to them even though most were seated after us. Also, we were not told that an 18% tip was added to our bill for our party of 6 and we tipped on top of that. Yes, our fault for not checking... More

My husband and I have come here for the corned beef and cabbage two years in a row and weren't disappointed. They gave him broccoli instead of the carrots when he requested the change. There was live music in the back patio, and an Irishman with bagpipes walking through to entertain the customers. They passed out green hats and beads... More

Attentively served by a friendly Jaime our meal was a superbly tasty treat. My fiancee had the Shepherds Pie, which she declared as gorgeous. And I had to try their fish and chips, which as Brit in situ more than passed muster as exceptional and very tasty as well. The lager washed it down nicely. Sitting outside in the Winter... More

Cooper's is located on Cannery Row - right in the thick of things. It's all street parking (or public garage somewhere) but its a downtown location so plan for that. But, when you go in, the place has a historic feel to it. There a lots of beer options on tap and a good selection of pub food. I only... More

Went there for drinks and appetizers. Since my lady friend never had sardines before (what right) we ordered them. She was very pleased that she ordered her own. Drinks were good and the service was excellent. The view was great. Romantic place if you get the tables by the Windows. Or what you make of it. Lol.

We didn't know where to go to avoid the "tourist meals", so we ended up here having a delicious fish & chips. Friendly service, nice cosy atmosphere, good beer and lovely desserts Would really recommend

We dined here as a family for lunch. It was right after Christmas, and Monterey was packed even on a Wednesday afternoon. Our service was excellent overall. I enjoyed a seafood salad sandwich that was full of seafood (shrimp and crab)and not all mayo and celery. The cheese bread, however, was skimpy, and only 3 of the small 4 pieces... More

Very good selection of British beers at reasonable prices. The Porter is particularly good. The food is good is very wholesome and tasty and good value . Fish & Chips and Steak & Mushroom Pie very good. If staying in Monterey a good place to go for good British pub food and ales.
