Experience the beauty of the Pacific Ocean combined with world-class dining on historic Cannery Row, just a short walk from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The newly renovated Fish Hopper, housed in an original sardine cannery building, offers spectacular views of the stunning Monterey Bay from every table, including our heated outdoor patio. The Fish Hopper specializes in fresh, sustainable seafood, certified Angus beef, pastas, and live shellfish. Our seafood is either locally caught or shipped in fresh daily, and our produce is locally grown in the Salinas Valley. Some favorites include fresh Monterey Bay abalone, macadamia-crusted halibut, our famous “Tomahawk Chop” bone-in rib eye, and fresh Dungeness crab. Start your meal with our award-winning clam chowder, and indulge in one of our many exotic cocktail creations or a selection from our extensive wine collection. While enjoying your delicious meal, you can watch sea otters at play and even catch a glimpse of the occasional whale.

    The hostess was so kind and was able to fulfill our request to sit at a window table. She gave us the best table in the restaurant! So grateful and we appreciate it so much!! Food was good. We love this place and haven’t been here for several years. The restaurant was updated and beautifully decorated. Thank you!!

    We been eating here for years and the service and food quality have been consistently high. Our server, Nelson, has waited on us several times over the years and he’s always friendly and efficient. Will come back again and would recommend.

    We always end up here when we visit Monterey. We try to try out a new dish and it never disappoints. Many of the other restaurants near the water are over priced due to being near the water but the food itself is disappointing. I’ve always had a great experience here but I do see that the staff is always so busy and look super stressed. I think adding more staff might help. I hope the tips make up for it :) Our waitress was Emily and she was so kind. She made sure all the sides needed were at our table before we even had to ask for it. The food suggestions she made were great. We had a great experience.

    It was a busy night so getting in even with a reservation took some time. The front desk had 1 person who really k ew what they were doing with. 4 others who didn’t seem to be on the same page at any time. Our server was great. The food took a while but was very good. Our dinner took over 2 hours.

    Our server, Brent, was outstanding. The restaurant was very busy but I didn’t feel our service suffered. The prices taking into account our view were reasonable. The food was very good. I was surprised that bread was an extra cost.

    The service was great but the noise level was way too high. Don’t mind kids but these kids were so loud and noisy and rude it made the whole experience not that exciting. I would not recommend - they even have sign against crazy kids but no action when they were inside.
