A great place with a beautiful setting on the ocean Every time my wife and I stay in Monterey we make a habit of eating at the Fish Hopper. The food is very good and the view is amazing. - 1 week ago
Best chowder After sampling all the chowder at the wharf, then walking around cannery row, decided to stop and check this place out. Got some chowder immediately after trying the samples they were giving out near the entrance to the restaurant. The best in the area by far. - 1 month ago
Great Deck and food! Stopped for late lunch dinner. Got a great table on deck. Our Server Cindy was great! She helped with recommending tips and was so pleasant! The drinks were great, the food was amazing and service was excellent! I feel that for the price, the food is worth it! Awesome place!! - 2 months ago
Also good for non-fish lovers! Had a wonderfully cooked and superbly tender Filet Mignon whilst dining here, yes it is a fish restaurant and my companions around me oozed their delight at their oceanic delights, but being a "fussy" eater, this place hit the mark for me - as did the cocktails. A truly great steak! - 2 months ago
Fish & Chips We stopped for lunch on a hot October day and decided to order the Mackerel Fish & Chips. The fish was breaded and fried to perfection -- it was delicious. The salad was okay (cabbage + mango + pineapple, with a dressing), and the fries were, well..., just fries. I found the place to be a bit pricey: this meal (plus iced tea) totaled $42, which is why I took off a star. The view of the bay is great (today kelp collectors were pulling kelp into their small boat, to be given to the aquarium). - 3 months ago

Avoid the chaos In Cannery Row a few weeks back. Recommend calling ahead and checking for traffic delays as there was a BLM protest going on same weekend we were there. Used GPS to get around traffic jammed streets heading into Cannery Row. GPS saved a significant amount time as we avoided sitting in traffic jam. My brother paid $20 for all day parking in Cannery Row. Although convenient for a family say with little ones, strollers etc., if you're only there a few hours like us, street parking with meters is the way to go.
It could save you $16. The restaurants had long wait for outdoor seating only. While waiting for a table at The Fish Hopper I spotted their to go counter. I placed an order which was ready in less than 20 min. This option worked out better than planned. Less expensive than restaurant menu, food already prepped to go, so found nice spot to sit and eat, avoiding hour and a half long wait for table, no waiters, or crowded restaurant seating area. Not a bad deal, in all a good trip. - 3 months ago
Delicious food. Beautiful views. Delicious food. Beautiful views. Quick service. And tasty refreshing drinks to boot. We recommend making a reservation online beforehand. We went on a Friday with a 4:30 reservation and were able to get in at 4 just having gotten off the boat from whale watching at the Wharf. - 3 months ago

Wonderful Lunch with Awesome Views - Fish Hopper Restaurant, Monterey We very much enjoyed our lunch at Fish Hopper Restaurant. We made our reservations on open table. We were seated at a table with an awesome view of Monterey Bay.
We enjoyed cocktails and beer with our lunch. They serve complementary rolls. I had cup of clam chowder, and their lobster/shrimp sandwich which came with fries and salad. My husband enjoyed his seafood salad.
We shared a piece of berry cake for dessert.
Service was very good. - 4 months ago
