Wife and I had a very nice dinner. Very classy place. Clam chowder was terrific. Scallops were excellent. Waitress was the best and very attentive. We will be going back every time we come to Morro Bay. Little pricey,worth it.

This restaurant served very good fish. The halibut was cooked to perfection. We also enjoyed the view from the second floor location. The restaurant is situated on morro bay where you can see the sunset into the pacific.
