That is one reasonwhy we are in the restaurant business! Mom and Dad taught us the values of a strong work ethic and the will to succeed as we helped to support the family. 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.

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.

This place is amazing. I would order everything if I could. I did have crabcakes, fish and chips, mahi tacos, garlic fries and my daughters chicken strips all just killer. Thanks for the experience.
