The atmosphere was very nice, quiet and relaxing. Service was pleasant and accomodating. We wanted a window seat, which we got, but the bird poop on the window was not appealing. I know we are right on the beach, but windows should be cleaned for a top notch rating. Food was ok. The clam chowder was excellent.

One of my favorite restaurants in SC for the location, ambiance and menu choices. I come here often with friends and get a table overlooking the ocean. My husband and I like to walk down for dinner and make it a nice quiet evening by sitting in one of their cozy tables. We also bring friends here who want a... More

We stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday and were able to sit outside and enjoy the view and sun. Anytime a restaurant hands me 4 menus I get nervous that there are too many specials and changes to the regular menu. I tried to order a Stella beer and she said they were out of that beer.... More

We celebrated my friend's 50th birthday here. The service was great considering the fact that it was a big group. They allowed to bring in a cake and served it for us. Enjoyed a nice cocktail before dinner.

Terrific established restaurant and bar on the Soquel Creek as it enters the ocean beach. Best dining and drinking viewing in Capitola. Widely varied menu of established favorites, plus always something special. Very friendly and efficient staff. Always return here.

If you are planning a trip to the Monterey Bay area make sure to stop in the quaint seaside village of Capitola on the Sea. Capitola is one of the oldest vacation destinations on the Pacific Coast. Just north of Monterey and immediately south of Santa Cruz you can literally drive along the scenic coast and find yourself on the... More

Good location, but not much more to it. We got food that was overcooked (probably was frozen) and full of sauce, so no clear taste to the meat or the lasagna that we ordered. Not our place.

Calamari appetizer was over the top - sit outside with a great view of the ocean. If you are going to have lunch in the Santa Cruz area - go to Capitola and eat at Stockton Bridge Grill.

I had the best calamari appetizer at Stockton Bridge Grill - the calamari came in stripes - not greasy at all. I I actually ate the calamari for my lunch - TOO DIE FOR - you can eat out on the patio and view of the ocean is wonderful.

Thank 21kay0224
