Hearty meals served in a friendly atmosphere. The hand carved roast beef sandwiches are good with horseradish and dipped in the salty au jus! best with one of the draft beers! Generous portions of fish/shrimp/calamari with a great view of "The Rock" are truly satisfying....More

We had the roast beef dips. They soak the bun in a bit of Worcestershire sauce and you get a pickle, very good.

We make it a point to stop for the roast beef sandwich, so very good. Very clean and the people were very nice.

Morro bay is not a dining destination, that said- this place is very good! We came in a group so I got to try most things on the menu---ALL are great! The service is pretty non-existent, but it doesn't matter---great view too! Fully recommend this...More

This is the second time I have been here and i am still impressed. We consistently have the hand-cut roast beef sandwich with dipped bread, but this time we also ordered their pastrami and a bowl of clam chowder--EXCELLENT! We sat outside last time but...More
