After a long, grueling day of hiking and crawling through mud, we rushed back to our house to clean up and make it for an 8:30pm dinner reservation. We were all extremely hungry and tired. When we got to the Monterey Fish House, it was pretty crowded and they lost our reservation. I’m pretty sure that this has happened to us before. We’ve been there three times now and they’ve lost the reservation twice. I was rather irritated, but they were very accommodating. We sat at the bar and ordered drinks. By the time we were settled with drinks, they had set up a table and had us seated. I’ll give them points for that. The reservation was originally for 8:30pm and they had us seated by 8:37pm (I checked the time). After the minor hiccup, the food and service was fantastic. We will definitely go there again when we are in town, but I’ll be sure to confirm my reservation before we arrive.
My parents love fried calamari so we got an order of that to start off with and since they really enjoyed the grilled oysters that we made them we got a small order of wood oven oysters. The oysters were delicious! They had grated garlic on top and a really nice smoking flavor. For me the calamari batter didn’t have much flavor, but my parents really enjoyed it.
