We followed Trip Advisor's recommendation for the best restaurant in Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf. It seemed that others did the same because Old Fisherman's Grotto was the only restaurant on the wharf that was full, all the rest were almost empty. The place was crowded with a good vibe ... people seemed to enjoy their dinner and plates looked promising. The... More
Our hotel recommend us to go for dinner at this restaurants. It was excellent service. The food delicious. We tell them that our hotel send us and they give us a free dessert. We were not expecting that.
We had lunch in a window booth of a gorgeous day in Monterey. That was the highlight of the lunch. Ebullient if a bit frenetic service, which was pretty slow in delivering the food. It would have been irritating if not for the view - but get a window seat! I had a badly overcooked and fry burger (I know,... More
The sign out front tells you all you need to know, it's not a place for young children.

Great location on Fishermans Wharf. Their Calamari is the best I've ever had. They have great views, great atmosphere and great service. Highly recommend eating here if you are in Monterey. They are usually giving away free appetizer cards at the chowder station out front. In addition to having good seafood their desserts are also great.
