Best Local Dining – Monterey

Seafood and Pastas – On The Monterey Wharf:


Cafe Fina

Outside View

Cafe-Fina Owner







I would like to personally welcome you to Cafe Fina. My family and I have been serving diners on Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf since 1989. We specialize in Italian cuisine, make our pastas and raviolis in house, grow our own seasonal organic home-grown vegetables, and serve a variety of only the freshest seafood from the Monterey Bay. Our wood-burning oven prepares excellent pizza, and the quaint Italian decor and ocean views make dining at our restaurant a memorable experience.


Crabby Jim’s

More and more people are saying Crabby Jim’s is the place for clam chowder on the Wharf.  With chunks of clams, carrots, potatoes and celery, our chowder passes the Wharf taste test, and brings people back for more. Warm up next to our cozy fireplace on cold days.

Our excellent views of the Monterey Harbor allow you to enjoy Crabby Jim’s seafood while watching the sea lions and other harbor life.  For starters, try the Mussel and Clam appetizer, then a Coconut Crusted Halibut with Mango Salsa for a little something different. If Fish and Chips is what you crave, we have that too. Not hungry for seafood? No problem, we offer Italian and Mexican cuisine, and our steaks are delicious!








Crab Louie’s

Crab Louie Bistro’s dockside location on Monterey’s Old Fisherman’s Wharf is the ideal location for diners to enjoy feasts of grilled Pacific salmon, clam chowder, dungeness crab, and buttery white-wine shrimp scampi. Lovers of land-based fare can tuck into plates of grilled top-sirloin steak or zesty blackened-chicken linguini. Seafood fans can even breakfast on their favorite catches, including shrimp-and-mushroom omelets, or enjoy lunches of fish tacos with chipotle aioli. A separate children’s menu includes kid-friendly seafood such as popcorn-shrimp plates along with classic go-to meals, including a grilled cheese. A litany of adult beverages complements surf-and-turf dinners with sips of cold beer and California wines.

From a cozy perch at a windowside table, diners can look out at a stunning maritime scene: sailboats coming into port at the marina, waves lapping at the dock, and seagulls wheeling dangerously close to the dragon responsible for the Technicolor flames of a glorious Pacific sunset.
