I was searching for beautiful Pacific Grove on the ocean, between Pebble Beach and Monterey. Unfortunatley, Yahoo has now lumped seven cities into one travel search? In Pacific Grove I suggest these favorites: Joe Rombi's la Mia Cucina-Italian & Seafood, Peppers Mexicali Grill, or Holly's for breakfast. Ask a local.
The food is average and it's nearly impossible to get seated. Had the bartender and host argue with eachother about who was going to seat us. Neither wanted to. When our host finally sat us down at a table he cursed and threw our menus at us. Great place if all you want to do is get drunk.
Tha patio of the crown is hands down the best place to drink and grab a late night snack anywhere in Monterey the Patio staff of Art and Scot keep the beers comin and the atmosphere pleasant with thier friendly service. The Duck is dirty, Doc's is trashy, Octane is too Salinas the Brit is drunken kareoke, and lalla's is too quite and polite.
Can't say enough about the Crown & Anchor in Monterey! The food is outstanding - the Cheeseburgers and the New Zealand Green Mussels are especially good. Lots of beers on tap. We usually hung out on the patio - summer and winter. Great food, plentiful drinks, and good service - what more can you ask! Although I haven't been there in a while (moved away from Monterey), I hear thru the grapewine that it's still kickin.'
