We startedin the restaurant business in 1964 in the Yosemite Valley, then moved here to the coast in 1968. Our Family has been part of the local restaurant scene for many years.

Crab-melt was delicious. Clam chowder in a bread bowl was really tasty. The restaurant staff was very accommodating to our large party with several small children. Beautiful views of the Bay. I am pretty partial to Dutch people/family owned restaurants. This was a winner

Delicious food. Great view. Service was sub par. If I'm paying a good amount for dinner, I'd expect a tad better service. But food was excellent and that's what will keep me coming back!

Our favorite spot in Morro Bay. Delicious food and beautiful views. The one reason i didnt give 5 stars is the the chowder is always changing. Sometimes is savory and flavorful, sometimes its bland. I wish they'd just stay with one buttery, bacon, celery inspired chowder recipe.
