We had lunch here 2 days as we were doing things along the Embarcadero, One day we had fish & chips and then the next day we had a tri-tip sandwich. Both meals were good, tasty, hot and affordable. The staff both times were really nice, friendly and attentive. The place has great views of the boats and the bay.

We always eat here when we come to the beach. Great staff. Pat & Troy know how to take care of business. Right on the water front. Soup or salad comes with dinner. Great fish, reasonable wine, very nice salads & hot bread with butter.

It is worth the walk toward the smokestacks to come here. Go past the fast food but into the restaurant. We had red snapper, halibut and swordfish. The latter was cooked with piccata sauce and was magnificent. The fish was moist and flaky. They also had steamed vegetables so the meal was very healthy. Service is attentive. Fish can also...

We have eaten here many times. Has a tiki ambiance. Right on the water. We love the u-shaped booths. My husband loves the red snapper which I always got also until I had the scallops with shrimp in a cream sauce. It is too die for. Salads are great. Rice is moist. Very big desserts.

The food was okay, but definitely overpriced. The location on the water is nice, but you get blinded at sunset. The waitstaff was friendly, but a bit silly. They asked two people in our party if they could clear their plates when they were literally mid bite and had a majority of their meal remaining, haha.

Came him for a friendly lunch and we tried multiple items (onion rings, fish & chips, garlic bread, potato skins) but by far the best/favorite was the oyster shooter. Great tasting vodka, spicy tasty cocktail sauce, and probably the largest oyster I have ever had. This was my first time having one but won't be my last. No matter where... More

We were given a recommendation to this restaurant by a local on the fishing boat we went out on. He was right on the mark. Great views and fantastic food. It has a quaint tropical theme. Our waitress was super. friendly with great suggestions. My husband had a fantastic cioppino and I had a very tasty steak and seafood plate.... More

Ate outdoors and had excellent cod & chips. It was a Monday evening & service was quick and well done. We had a few questions which were answered in full. Couldn't fault it. Good basic food and lovely helpful service.
