|About these ratings|
Near Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Old Fisherman's Wharf is not the smelly, salt water-stained place it once was. Costly restaurants and souvenir shops now characterize this harborside neighborhood. Many travelers delight in the setting and use it as a launching point for whale-watching tours and kayaking in the bay. But others opt to skip the wharf's high prices and tourist scene. If you do visit, be sure to taste the clam chowder. We'd recommend you order a cup or bowl at Old Fisherman's Grotto.
One reviewer tells TripAdvisor, "It's worth a quick stop … but don't expect all day entertainment. You can stroll through the few cute little shops and get something to eat all within a couple hours."
