A large, busy, bustling restaurant on the water which somehow manages to deliver good food and service.

If you want a touristy restaurant to go to while walking around Cannery Row in Montery this (apparently) is the place to go. Be prepared to dish out some bucks! Luckily, we were on a business dinner, and it was nice to be treated! We had a large group (16) and the Fish Hopper was not able to seat us all together, but in back to back tables, which was a little disappointing. And we did not have a good view. However, the servers did their best to keep us happy.

For appetizers we had Grilled Artichokes, Fried Calamari & Coconut Prawns. All were very good.There were so many of us that I can't remember what everyone had, but the comments were positive. Nothing over-the-top-unbelievable, but very good. The fish was tasty and the portions good.

Would we return? Probably not. A little touristy for our liking, but I could see how some people would really enjoy it.

There were quite a number of people queueing for a table and we were in line for about half an hour. However, once we entered the restaurant we were shown to a table on a pier overlooking the ocean. There was a large choice of different foods on the menu with the emphasis on seafood but I had a very good pasta meal and a friend chose steak. Service was friendly and efficient, our waitress even agreeing to take a photo of us, and the bar area appeared to be very popular. Pricewise it wasn't the cheapest eating place but I would recommend it as a special treat.

Enjoyed a spectacular lunch overlooking the pacific after touring the aquarium - which is a must also! While Cannery Row might be a bit too 'touristy' - it is worth having lunch here. Wine list is more than adequate, and quite reasonably priced. Chowder is incredible!

The food was great! I had the coconut shrimp and tuna salad and ceviche everything was delicious! The atmosphere was really nice and it was overlooking the water. Our server was very good.
