It is being replaced sometime in 2015 by a restaurant called Lalla Ocean Grill, which is part of a small chain of Lalla-themed restaurants in the area, such as Lallapalooza and the Lalla Grill.

We first went to Fish Hopper and could not get waited on. We came here and our whole day changed. The food is great. Clam chowder is out of this world. Our server was fast and friendly! They saved the day. You won't be sorry!!

We stopped in for lunch and boyhood had the chowder. The staff was very nice and we were seated at a table with great view of the water. This was a fine place for lunch if you are right at cannery row.
