Show up at 4p-7p, but no later than 6:30p, cause the crash of locals move head downstream and it becomes a comedic snagglefest. This is what you order... Mondays: Italian Sausage, Peppers and Onions, Pasta Salad and Focaccia bread Tuesdays: BBQ ribs, baked beans & coleslaw Wednesdays: 1/4 BBQ chicken, potato salad and veggies Thursdays: Steak tacos, rice, and beans Fridays: 2 Deep fried fish tacos on corn tortillas served with rice and black beans It's A LOT of food. And are you ready for the price? $3. Yep -three dollars. There is a catch though, and the catch is this: You have to order a drink. The waiters and waitresses are obviously trained to push the alcohol; which most people consent to... However, if you go with the beer expect to pay $3-$5 extra. Others go for margaritas or mixed drinks (Long Island Iced Teas). Do this option and expect to pay $5-$6. Sorry, you can't bypass the deal by ordering a water. So what I recommended is a ice tea, coffee, or if you're a carbonated sugar lover -move in that direction. A coffee will run you approximately $1, maybe $1.50 -as of today's date. All in all: Spending under $5 for an entire FULL meal is unheard of these days. I encourage all who read this to use some of the extra savings as opportunities for generosity toward your server. Once you get a feel for how busy and loud that place can get; with as view staff as they have, except for the bartenders -you'll see why. If you're a alcohol affecienado you might appreciate the quickness of most of your drink orders. There's an unspoken code about this place which I'll break right now. Love that the place has approximately 3-5 servers at a time running the place but seems as if there's 4-8 bartenders in a fully stocked bar on the inside. Might be a correlation between the noise level. After all, you're in the area of the pier bowl and except for the establishments along El Camino Real and perhaps Del Mar (The main arteries of this city), this can rank amongst the loudest in a controlled setting. Don't expect to see drunk fools strolling around the pier... It happens, but not occasionally... Go to Huntington or Newport -if you enjoy that act. Actually, come to think about it... There is Knucklehead's Bar (on the north side of town, off El Camino Real in North Beach). There you can see 'likes to fight guy' and the rest of the crew. But I'll save that Yelp entry for later.

My family and I have been coming here for over 20 years,and we have never had a bad experience. It is so relaxing to just sit there while the ocean waves go underneath you. We always love the steamed clams they are a must!!! If you sit on the restaurant side you can get the fisherman's feast which is amazing, but the minimum is two people, and a lot of food!!! Enjoy!!!

I wish I could review this restaurant, but went there late on a Sunday morning and couldn't find parking anywhere. I had my wheelchair bound mother with me. There wasn't even a spot I could drop her off in front while I searched. Ended up turning around and going home.

The food wasn't worth the extremely high prices. The service wasn't much better either, she forgot our wine and we waited far too long for our order to be taken. However, the view was absolutely amazing, it was their saving grace.

Ate lunch here today, on a Saturday and were seated in about 20 minutes. Not bad for as busy as it was. Server was quick to greet us and get orders placed. The food was good, atmosphere was great. Server was a bit slow on the drink refills and getting the check. I wouldn't say that in and of itself warrants knocking a star off. After we were done eating the gal behind the register was doing thirty different things. I wanted to buy a shirt but she wouldn't give me the time of day. She was busy with everything except me. Sure, they were busy but I only needed a minute of their time for a shirt. If she would have been nicer and given me the time of day I would rate this place 5/5. Either she needs to place the customer standing in front of you first, or they just need more help at busy times. Either way, 4/5. I wild cone back for sure. Without a doubt. Prices were reasonable I though. Some items expensive but most were reasonable for on the pier seafood.

Great location.... Over priced soup kitchen food. Seafood is sub par at best... Wish this place would close down and be replaced with something better.

Atrocious customer service. Waited 90 minutes for a table for two on the shaded side on the deck on our anniversary. They sat 3 tables of 7 in front of us, then offered us a table inside the busboys station! Don't waist your time on this place. We all can do better...
