Enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. This is a wonderful place to eat. Ribeye was terrific! Service was great, very attentive. Apple/glazed mini donuts with ice cream was delicious. We always are blown away here. I highly recommend this place.

It was just a daily "nautical" special, but that paella was some of the best I've had since my trip to Spain. I hope it's on the menu again tomorrow before our flight leaves.

Although within a hotel, we enjoyed all of our visits. If you are in the area and not resident at the hotel, you can't do better than booking for breakfast

Love this nautical restaurant! It’s the best! We had lunch, went to the spa, it’s so great because it’s right in the ocean!

There are many restaurant choice on Cannery Row so competition is fierce. I visited for lunch. Everything except two items involves seafood so this is not the place for the non-seafood lover. But just about everything good from the sea is available and if there...More
