– Definitely go Italian. The best I’ve ever had.

After scouring the city for an Italian restaurant, we saw a huge sign for homemade pasta and pizza. Bingo! Free street parking is available, which was a welcome change from the Cannery Road vicinity. After walking in we were immediately greeted by a very friendly woman who asked us how many were in our party. In less than 5 minutes we were seated , unheard of even in our small city, let alone Monterey. She immediately took our drinks (it’s a coke facility, by the way), and left us alone with the menu.

Wow. We were impressed, to say the least. I guess with the name “International Cuisine” we should have realized, but we weren’t expecting Moroccan and Russian on the menu.

We started off our meal with cheesy garlic sticks and marinara sauce, and it’s probably some of the best I’ve ever had. My family typically hates marinara, but theirs was irresistible. The owner came to collect our plates, which was very nice. It brought a homey feel to the already comfortable atmosphere.

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!
