Our first meal in town was lunch, at the Great American Fish Co. The aroma of the fish and chips led us directly to this place. I would imagine all of our future trips to Morro Bay will include this place. Very enjoyable.

I have always been treated so well here even when I dine alone. They have a senior menu with great choices! Lovely views of the harbor. I return each time I visit Morro Bay.

We never go to Morro Bay that we don't eat at the Great America Fish Co. There food and service is always great. We've been coming here for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience.

We had seven people in our group and each had a different entree. Each person enjoyed their Dinner. Fun atmosphere being right next to the water. Wait staff was very friendly. I would go there again.

I has the Mesquite Broiled Salmon. The gourmet's favorite! Locally caught when available. Sustainable always. It was delicious and filling! It came with red cabbage and rice pilaf. Both tasted great! An added plus "The Beach Boys" music was playing! The restaurant is located next...More
