We tried this place on our second night in Salinas. It was about 8 pm on Saturday night and it was pretty deserted n Old Town. There were 6 other diners and a few people at the bar when we arrived. About 15 minutes after we sat down they brought in the street sign and looked like they were going to close. Two more couples came after they took the signs in and they told them they were closing but they could be seated. Not exactly the attitude you'd expect from a place that was slow to begin with
We started with a ceasar salad with bay shrimp and a cup of chowder. The salad had plenty of shrimp and was good. The chowder was ok. The water we were served had an odd taste that spilled over into their food.
My wife had the wild salmon (vs. the farm raised which is the usual which is wierd for a place next to some really good fishing). I had blackend snapper (we don't have red snapper on the west coast so I guess any rockfish is considered "snapper"). It was spiced nicely but I should have known "snapper" doesn't hold up to grilling like some fish so it fell apart as i was eating it. It was still pretty good. We had two cocktails apiece, appetizers and two entrees and it was close to $100. Next time we'll find something out of "old town" and probably good food for a better value.
