We stopped here on a trip up the coast for my birthday dinner. The patio offers fantastic views of the Pacific ocean sunsets. The inside is tired looking in need of upgrading as it is dark and not updated for todays type of restaurants. The food is good but not excellent. Our food was warm but not hot! My wife... More

We had lunch on my birthday and sat outside overlooking the cove. Very beautiful views and we even saw dolphins swimming by! The food was very nice, great choice of options, lots of salads and good fish selection. We shared the grilled octopus starter which was really delicious, chargrilled and very tasty. We then had an ahi tuna salad and... More

We had a late breakfast here. Wait staff were very good - attentive but not hovering. We got a window table and the view was fabulous. Wouldn't have minded if the food was only mediocre because it was a great location. BUT the food was very good. Lattes were great. Both our breakfasts were excellent. Certainly a place we will...

Great view, Cadillac margarita was average, calamari was blah. Pricy$. Bartender never cleaned the bar counter or dirty glasses off of bar from previous guests. When I asked him playfully if he made good Cadillac margaritas, he laughed at me and said, " Yeah, right." Not sure what that meant since his Cadillac margarita was average. Locals hang at the...

Stopped here for lunch after being in the truck for 3 hrs. My husband had the clam chowder and a salad and I had a BLTA (avocado). All were Delish and freshly made. Kids meals had a lot of choices (including healthy ones). Service was good, even with kids!

The bathrooms were horrendous, worse than an outhouse at the beach. That was my intro to this place. But then the views set in so I decided to forgive a bit. You have the option of eating outside on the deck or indoors. There is a very very large menu, but almost everything was fried or battered and the portions... More

Went here for a business/end of year dinner. Vibe was lively, their cheese/garlic bread they serve with dinner was delicious. Their fish & chips platter was large and my seafood fettuccini had multiple different seafoods (shrimp, mussels, clams, fish). Good service and nice atmosphere.
