Went to the Otter Rock Cafe Friday before taking the harbor cruise. We were disappointed with their limited menu. Clam chowder was really thick, like too thick, but it tasted good. Theres also only servers that bring you food but you order everything, food and drinks, at the bar which is fine but they didn't let us know when we got there so it did make things weird. The views were amazing though. The bartender made great drinks was very nice and had funny stories, he was very entertaining. So just for drinks this place is great but I wouldn't go there expecting much more.

I ordered the seafood chowder. It came out fast but that's the end of the good stuff...
The soup was warm at best the bread not heated thru. About 2 chunks of fish and the rest to me was white sauce with celery.
My hubby's meal was very fresh fish and good.

Arrived in Morro Bay around 9 p.m. on a Friday night looking for a light meal and found the Otter Rock Café. LIVE MUSIC! brews and light meal. We were told to order at the bar, after being given a menu and directed to an open table. Live music was LOUD, but food was OK as was the service. Just what we needed after a drive over to the coast.

I do not recommend this place. While the seating was quick, no wait which is why we went, should of been a clue, and the waitress was kind, the food was sub par (under statement), especially for the price. The burger tasted worse than you would get from the local Foster Freeze up the street! Really basic!!! They have only 5 things on the menu and no prices were listed, we asked the prices and I feel she just made it up. Fish tacos were not good, the tuna melt was so unspectacular, wonder bread and tuna from a can. Just slap suckers on our for heads. Never again!!! Wish we had just gone to Whole Foods Market in SLO. Felt sick after.

Came for a late lunch around 2pm mid February. It wasn't crowded at all, and we had a table by the windows with a full view of Morro Rock as well as the marine animals playing in the bay right outside where the sailboats are moored. The chardonnay and cab sav on tap were $7 a glass and made the view extra euphoric in the bright sunshine.
There steak and tater tots were plentiful and cooked just right as was the calamari and
curly fries. A side order of sweet potato fries glazed with honey were overkill, but we managed.it. There is a small stage for live music and they have lots of different beers.
The service was meh despite it not being crowded at all, but didn't ruin the overall experience. Prices were not bad, either.
