“Local bar and grill hits the spot”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

A nice little place tucked in by the marina in Half Moon Bay :)
There is absolutely nothing upscale about this local restaurant but it is a great local eatery. Formica bench seats, weathered wooden tables and minimal decor but good food that is served up quickly. Reasonable prices and fresh fish make this a nice stop for residents and out of towners who are not looking to impress anyone. Ask for a seat that looks out on the marina!

“Taste of local atmposphere”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Sitting right on the docks of Half Moon Bay, you will find ketch joanne.
A small restaurant( with a bar), with a pub like atmosphere.
A diverse menu with fresh seafood. Good bread, good food, good beer.

The locals def go there!

Small restrooms, but there are bigger ones on the boat docks where there are baby changing stations.

“Local Hangout”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I visited the bar at Ketch Joanne several times while staying in Half Moon Bay for a 2 week business trip. The place was lively and entertaining. The bar service was good and the food was delicious. But what stood out most to me was the local color. This place has a bold personality and it isn't afraid to show it. Bonus points for being open late. Come as you are.

“Best Crab/Shrimp Louies”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great food! Louies are loaded! The tempura zucchini and mushrooms are so yummy. I'm a fan of the Boston clam chowder but you must try their Manhattan chowder.

“Not good for seafood”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

The waitstaff was good, the ribeye was good but expected to be better. The seafood had no flavor and tasted boiled. I would not go back.
