Went for dinner for our 31st Wedding Anniversary. This place is great. Nikki, our waitress patiently explained both drinks and food. She was very friendly and made sure we got what we wanted. One item we ordered wasn't even on the menu, but suggested by Nikki. The food was fantastic and the view at sunset was superb. Carlo the Manager... More

Ask for a window seat or out on the balcony. A bowl of chowder and glass of crisp white wine together with the view makes for a fine afternoon.

Stopped in for some clam chowder. When walking in, you pass a board containing items available for take out. A bread bowl at the door is $10.50. We opted to be seated inside. On the menu, the same bread bowl of clam chowder is $17.95. Huh? The chowder tasted wonderful! Very rich, tasty with lots of clams.

The seafood here was good especially the halibut. The waiter, Henry, was very attentive & provided good recommendations. We sat facing the ocean watching the otters play. Nice ambiance!

We had two excellent meals at the Fish Hopper. Our dinner of fresh halibut was so good, we decided to have lunch there the next day. The crab and shrimp salad sandwich was amazing. The manager shared information on the fresh fish and checked on us during the meal. The staff was professional as well. Go before dark so you... More

The flooring needs a good cleaning, etc etc !! Great view but pricey ! Portions are generous but salad is extra. Service was... More

The food was good and the prices reasonable. Location right over the water makes site seeing while you eat a bonus.

Ask for a "Loaded Bloody Mary". And ask for Cindy to serve it to you. This place is a real gem. In real estate it's location, location, location. In vacation dining it's service, location & food quality". The Fish Hopper is a home run.
