Our server was a very fun lady, and we enjoyed our fish lunch with wine and beers. This was recommended by our boat captain after we sailed with Blue Ocean Whale Watching.

Just out for a drive on a Saturday we decided to take a side road, and found this little place with a large and varied menu! What a nice surprise! It's small but not cramped and the wait staff are attentive and pleasant. The place is very clean and has lots of customers, many locals from conversations we overheard. The... More

I'd never been to Moss Landing before our visit in March 2017 and certainly never heard of the cafe, but I'll never forget it now! Fantastic treatment by the owner, who chatted with us throughout the evening. He even customized a couple dishes so they'd be to our liking and dietary needs. The shrimp was the most tender I'd ever... More

We had sea bass, artichoke hearts deep fried. So good, the "chokes" better than any fries. Service was swell and not too pricey.

A simple little place with honest food, with a family cafe type of feel. A warm place that we always return to.

Only open for dinner Friday & Saturday night. Breakfast & Lunch all other days. Owner Chef is great and goes over the menu with each table. He has been in business at this location 32 years so he is doing something right. Great food and service.

This is one of the best little restaurants in Moss Landing. They have limited dinner hours but getting there is well worth it. The food is always outstanding from steaks to seafood or a combination of the two. The chef wanders around talking to the guests and the wait service is superb. A bit pricey but worth every bite. Parking... More

We ate here twice thanks to TripAdvisor reviews. I loved the food and my wife thought it was good. I'm the foodie between us and ordered off the specials menu. It was amazing flavor with plenty of food. Service the first day was ok, she was a bit busyso that may have had something to do with it. the next... More

Fair warning: we know the owner, so may be a bit biased. That being said, MLC is an hour from our home and we make it a point to stop here for breakfast whenever we're headed to Monterey. Where else can you get FRESH sand dabs & eggs, or halibut & eggs? Right off the fishing boats! If you're a... More
