Six of us had an excellent dinner here Sept. 14, with a variety of entrees ordered and wonderful wait staff. Visited on the recommendation that this is where local residents go when they want top quality seafood, and our visit confirmed it is great.

I am a calamari freak. Eat it everywhere it is in the menu. Their's is THE best I have had anywhere in the country that I've eaten it. The next night we had a crab cake--wonderful. The staff is great, friendly and fast.

Wow! Diamond in the rough! You wouldn't guess by the exterior that the Monterey Fish House served as many delicious and unique offerings as it does. Think seafood with Italian influences. Squid parmesan. BBQ grilled octopus. Prawn pasta. The list goes on. Delicious. Quaint dining...More
