My mom wanted clam chowder she said it was fabulous. I am not a seafood fan so I had a bacon cheeseburger and sweet potato fries they were good. Very friendly atmosphere.

We had a pretty good meal here. Too tired to go out with kids so it worked out perfect. Food was good and great service.

Why? Well, it is justly popular, because the food is good, the drinks are decent size, the TV sets are on the right games and the crowd is friendly. The bartenders and servers were excellent, with the right touch for a place that seems to get a lot of local business as well as travelers. For a casual night in with decent menu choices exceeding the usual sports bar regimen, this is a good alternative.

Beer was cold...staff was very attentive. Great Greek salad and best Clam Chowder bowl I have ever had...and I have had a lot.

We were looking for THE place to watch football in Monterey, and everyone pointed us to Characters - which was great because we were staying in the Marriott anyway. And they didn't disappoint - every TV is labeled with the game it'll be airing so you can pull up a chair close to your game. The Sunday morning bloody mary bar was nice too!!!!
