My husband and I went there on a recent trip to Santa Cruz, we got there around 5:30pm and got to see all of the boats and rowers returning and heading out for sunset cruises from the harbor. We sat upstairs on the deck and had a good view, and stayed warm because the area is glassed in protecting you from the winds.

The food was good, drinks were expensive. We ordered the fish and choice and the fish tacos. The panko breading on fried fish was definitely overcooked, but the inside of the fish was tasty.

Overall, it was a nice spot, with a great view!

This review is for the little shop next to the parking lot called the Beach Market. Nice place for souvenirs and those last minute items you forgot at home. Also they serve lunch like sandwiches and salads mostly made to order. Also they let our dog come in just for a minute while we were all deciding what to eat.

Nice view, but food is average at best. Everything seemed indifferently prepared. Add to this, parking can be a pain.

I found the brunch unexciting, and the place overall overpriced, but still a nice stop to enjoy the Santa Cruz vibe and views of the beach and Monterey Bay.

I was really impressed with this restaurant. The food was delicious- staff super friendly and helpful and the ocean views perfect. I can’t wait to visit again- my type of place.
