Definitely comfort food...hot clam chowder on a drizzly day. Food came out the fastest I've ever seen, but was piping hot and clearly fresh. Great cocktail selection (that's their purple French 75).

Excellent food, reasonably priced, nice outdoor seating, and plenty of parking spaces. It's not on the main street so it's less crowded. I will definitely go there again.

Ya know, this place could use a little sprucing up from the highway side. It looks a little less than inviting. But after looking at the menu online, it seemed like a good choice. The interior is quite lovely and doesn't match the outside. The staff is welcoming and really friendly. The food was fantastic!! I had the fish tacos and c ... read more

Our first meal in Half Moon Bay and it was a good one. Dropped by for lunch and even though it was pretty busy we got seated pretty quick. Loved the Calamari, it was super fresh. The crab cakes were amazing and the tacos were awesome. There were so many good things on the menu. Would love to come back and try them out.

My family and I had lunch here and the food was amazing! Most of us had seafood and all I can say is wow. If you have a dog in your family they have outdoor seating and they even have a dog menu. My pup enjoyed his lunch as much as we did. If you are in the Halfmoon Bay area this is a must try place, you will not regret it.

Delicious fish and chips and love the crabby cheesy bread and ceviche. Definitely worth coming here if you are in HMB. The one thing that was just ok was the chowder which was a little fishy and the potatoes were under cooked. Other than that amazing service and food. Patio is very dog friendly too!

What a great surprise! We were in a holding pattern near SFO and decided to rent a car and drive out to the coast for a few hours. Just stumbled upon this place and went in and got one of the best lunches I've had in forever! The server was a little aloof but the host and manager were super friendly. The star of the show is the food!

Calamari, clam chowder and the halibut fish and chips was ordered. My husband and I enjoyed it all, the halibut was cooked so perfectly, it was melt in your mouth type halibut.

I picked this restaurant out of Half Moon Bay's offerings because it had jambalaya, my favorite dish. So I ordered that plus a cup of clam chowder for starter, hoping that neither of them would be too large (they weren't: the cup was an actual cup). What the jambalaya and the chowder had in common is that they were smooth and creamy.

Ordered the fried combination. The batter itself is thin and crispy. Texture is delightful however by the end of the meal you'll notice the oil and it won't be a pleasant feeling.

This is a great old restaurant. The food is perfect, and it is very pleasant. It is hard to find, because it is in a small way that looks like a factory and then turn right.
