Stopped here for a quick drink and snack at lunch time. We were here midweek without the tourist crowd. Bartender served us drinks at HH prices. We also ordered stuffed mushrooms with crab meat and garlic fries. Both were very good and reasonably priced for a touristy area

The views of the Monterey Bay were outstanding from both the dining room and the patio. The menu was unexciting, the service was extremely slow and inattentive. We went on a January weekday after the lunch hour and there were only a few other customers. We were seated promptly and politely, but then waited almost 10 minutes for the bus... More

We chose this restaurant to be on the water and as our "lunch break" from the aquarium. Lot's of wait staff and very attentive and our food arrived quickly. Their chowder is great and the addition of crab makes it a meal for two!

The Fish Hopper isn't the catchiest name for a Restaurant but it certainly has a great selection of fresh and substainable seafood. My friend and I had two different dishes of flounder and one was locally caught and the other was from Alaska. Delicious meals. Yes, of course we shared!

The Fish Hopper has remodeled once again and now feels even more romantic for a nice dinner with family or friends. The Greeters and Servers are very friendly and helpful. We have been here many times and it's nice to see the regular staff such as Donnie, Jose, Roberto and Niki who go out of their way to ensure that... More

The view is romantic and fantastic. The dining room is sitting right on the water along the Cannary row. Good selection of seafood. We decided on the Clam Chowder, the 10 oz. lobster, seafood pasta, and grilled calamari. We started with the pina colada, it was delicious and sweet. The clam chowder Bowl was a bit expensive at almost $... More

.....not THAT one! Took one of their dishes and turned it around but it was our waitperson who gave the OK! Very friendly staff we never felt unattended. Husband had seafood pasta with shrimp, lobster and all kinds of seafood. Didn't leave a drop on his plate. I took what was basically fried shrimp and French fries and turned it... More

Wait staff was excellent, clam chowder is very good! If you are only going to try 1 clam chowder when in Monterey, this is the one! Our party was a large one, yet the staff was very attentive, drinks kept full, food was served all together (rare when in large group), and everyone's order was correct! Specialty drinks where great,... More

My husband and I had a late lunch/early dinner here on our honeymoon road trip. That's a GREAT time to dine as we were seated right away and had attentive service. The food was good and they even gave us a free dessert with happy honeymoon written on the plate in chocolate! All in all a great meal, complemented by... More

My husband and I ate lunch. We loved the free calamari appetizer. The clam chowder was delicious! We had a great table at the window overlooking the Monterey Bay. It was fun watching the harbor seals and seal Iions! I had the seafood salad, which had prawns, crab, hard boiled egg, great greens and fresh vegetables. It was delicious with... More
