Fishwife's Clam Chowder

Noisy! Hard to converse. Food average. Service adequate.
We have been going there for some time and we were surprised and a bit disappointed by the food. I got the Hawaiian bowl and my fish fillet was thin and uneventful. Hard to ruin rice and the veggies were ok. Definitely not up to par with our visits in the past. Not sure if it is a result of Covid but we won’t go back.
Cafeteria quality food. Sole was tasteless, mashed potatoes could have been boxed, and vegetables bland and almost raw.
Absolutely delicious food.
Menu seems to have changed. Clam chowder not as good as earlier visits. Replacement fish for special was dry, blackened seasoning still dry as well. Service was great - nice people. Maybe an off day.
We were hesitant to eat here after reading Yelp reviews. To our surprise, the food was very good! We had the sea bass over crab ravioli's (special of the night). The veggies were bland and watery, but the dish was good.
The Alfredo and Marinara pasta's with seafood were really good. The homemade pasta was one of the best I've had in a restaurant!
Service was good - not overly good, but efficient.
We didn’t go there for the fish (though we had clam chowder). The portions were small, and the preparation was okay. It was expensive for what we had. The only upside was that the pour on a glass of wine was hearty. Great service, just such a shame about the quality of food.
Great food and lovely low key environment with lots of sweet fishy decorations. The hostesses and waitress were wonderfully friendly and caring, very efficient! Good prices too! It's a great place for a quick delicious meal!
Best fish dishes ever and the desserts were exceptional! Super fresh and beautifully presented. Try the local brewed root beer! Any my husband said the beer from Turkey was good too. Get reservations so you're sure to get a spot in this gem of a restaurant. It's not much to look at but the laid back mood is all part of the experience.
I haven’t been here in years and when we walked in I wasn’t so sure it was going to be good. The service was nice. The food was sooo tasty and looked appealing. I had the Cozumel, my grandmother had the clam chowder bread bowl, and mom had the fried seafood plate, and dad the prawn Alfredo. Everyone enjoyed their food. The only thing that had caused doubt in my mind was the interior of the restaurant, it’s a bit run down and dingy. That’s said, with the pandemic I’m sure restaurants don’t have the funds to dump into a refresh. I definitely recommend for something casual and yummy!!
Wonderful pasta and seafood dinners!
Loved the food. Each and every item were freshly prepared. The host was very caring and welcoming. I will love to go back there. The aroma of the Clam chow der and Fishes are still lingering in my taste buds!!
Every time we visit Monterey/Pacific Grove we make it a point to have dinner at The Fish Wife. It is a rather "funky" little place, one a person might drive by and ignore if they didn't know what outstanding meals were served there.
We came here for my step son’s birthday. (I mentioned we were celebrating a birthday on our reservation but it wasn’t acknowledged during the evening.) I had always heard such good things about this restaurant but I was so disappointed. Three of us ordered a different “fisherman’s bowl” and none of them were served hot. In addition, they were all very bland. The one entree that was good was the Shrimp Veneto. (I will say that we did enjoy our drinks and the desserts were yummy.)
Service wasn’t great. The server never came back to check on how we were enjoying our meal.
With so many options available on the peninsula, we will not be coming back.
Would recommend a hidden gem
Thank. We will go back if in the area.
Delicious! Prepared and served with care.
The food was ok, not great. The prices were quite high considering the meal.
The food is delicious! We will definitely be back.
Good food, good service. A few items were missing from the paper menu that were on the website but we still were able to order them.
We overall had a really good experience and we will absolutely be we come this way again.
The Fishwife has been in Pacific Grove for decades. This is the place to go for fresh delicious seafood. I have been here many times and I always like what I get.
This is about the fourth time we have eaten here. Food is always great!
The sole piccata surrounded with mashed potatoes and vegetables was delicious !
Our waiter was a delight and when the lady served my birthday dessert she serenaded me.
It was a memorable dinner with great food and people!
Food was excellent. Four of us each had different meals, including one vegetarian, and all were better than expected. Special requests were responded to, but service was generally quite slow. Wine list was more limited than in the past.
Staff was friendly and attentive. Service was fast.
A word on ambiance. This is a no-frills crab shack with superb food. Don't expect white tablecloths and myriads of wait staff to pour wine, take orders, bus, etc.--you get one very attentive and knowledgeable local. Which is all you need. And yes, the menu is less voluminous than what you'll see in Monterey in a restaurant on the wharf, but you'll be happy with anything you order. This is the true Monterey experience--OK, true Pacific Grove experience--and do yourself a favor. Drive back along the coast through Asilomar and hope to win the lottery.
The calamari steak was good, the wine tasty and the service was excellent.
Our go to restaurant when we visit the Monterey coast. Excellent food and service. Good value for the $$. _The Fishwife is always worth a visit.
Due to the heavy volume of customers waitress told us our dinner would be delayed a bit. Appreciated it and it did not feel long at all. Great entrees. Can’t go wrong with any. Banana cream cake was delicious.
The restaurant is small and busy, we dined outside the canopy. The waiter was very pleasant and attentive and very apologetic about food delay.
Food is good.
The location is okay but nothing to see.
The outdoor seating in tents in a motel parking lot don't do Fishwife any favors. The noise from the road was sometimes intrusive, and parking lot slopes so some of your party is eating 'uphill'. The staff were accommodating and attentive though the road noise did interfere a little with the communication. The food was good; the fish and chips were not ''batter dipped', but well seasoned and cooked well. The 'chips' were average. The promising Hawaiian bowl delivered fresh flavors from the veggies and black bean, but the mahi mahi centerpiece was over cooked and a little tough, I think indoor seating would boost the experience.
Fishwife was very busy on Saturday night but that did not impact our experience. The place was hopping with a lot of local diners.
The wait staff was attentive and our meal of delicious clam chowder and outstanding barramundi pleased the two of us.
Awesome! Been here several times and it never disappoints. We had the clam chowder, green lip mussels, calamari and crab cakes, all amazing and the service was spot on and friendly.
Just really good and healthy and fresh and clean I love this place
Great food and great service! The Fishwife is a place we've been coming back to for the last 27 years!
Waited close to an hour for our food. Fish overcooked, mashed potatoes cold. Extremely disappointing.
As always great food!! Servers were very pleasant.
This is home cooked meals that are so fresh from sea and market to the table.. 10 stars 🌟
My Barramundi was fantastic! I was a first with new seasonings. My husband had fish and chips. He said there was too much batter on them. He thought they were fried and not deep fried.
Love their food. Always happy to go there whenever we are in Monterey. The Barramundi is especially yummy.
