Restaurant is in great location with beautiful view of the ocean, staff friendly and the food was good. My disappointment and the rating was around my steak dish - $39 for the plate and it came with the steak, baked potato with sour cream and butter, but no vegetables or garnish on the plate. Unappealing to the eyes and disappointing to have no creams. For that price I expect a bit more.

Although the best part about this place is the view of the ocean, the food was pretty good too! Had a nice lunch here with my wife. Clam chowder was excellent. Great seafood choices. A little spendy, but definitely a good place to eat. I would come here again.

The dine in menu seemed rather pricey. We had a lunch to go. The clam chowder, hot dogs and smoked salmon were all delicious. Great spot in Cannery row.

We went here for lunch and loved the food! The service was great and the view was awesome! The best part of the meal was the cup of clam chowder! I’ve been here before and couldn’t forget the clam chowder. It was as good as I remember it before! I wanted to come back the next day to get a bowl but didn’t have time.

The service is great! Super friendly, knowledgeable and fast. You can tell they work hard there! I will come back for sure to get clam chowder. The nice thing is that you can walk up to their outdoor booth to buy certain items without having to eat at the restaurant. Gives you the option to grab some chowder on the go!

our family of 4 tried to save $$ by trying happy hour menu for dinner. total was $55 and we ordered clam chowder 2cups, prime rib sliders, crab cakes, ahi wrap, sweet potato fries and fish tacos. smaller portions but filling. our favorite was the clam chowder. for cannery row experience on a budget, thats not bad. we had to seat at the bar area and service was good. if you want full course dinner than their prices are similar to other in the area but their portions and meals look good. we're cheap, so we would come back for happy hour and they have a to go menu too!
