Fodor's Review

On the site of an old sportfishing dock, this popular spot offers a variety of seafood—from Idaho rainbow trout to locally caught black cod. There's a tranquil bay view from either the dining room, which is adorned with early-1900s fishing photos, or the waterfront patio. Favorites include blackened swordfish, local red snapper, and calamari steak for those who miss the abalone that used to be common in the area. There's an emphasis on freshness—the menu changes daily—and wines and craft brews are reasonably priced.
