Salinas Fish House Salinas, Ca
If you are looking for great Oak Grilled fish (they do have other preparations) then look no further than this long time establishment. With three locations in Monterey (fish house) and Carmel Valley you can always expect consistent fabulous sea food from these locations.
I tried the Oak Grilled Octopus then followed it up with the Oak Grilled Fresh Caught Monterey Bay King Salmon over a bed of local Salinas valley greens with the avocado Vinaigrette dressing. It was great will definitely be going back.
As for the ambiance the Monterey location is small so expect outside waiting during peak times and tight quarters inside. Salinas is roomy with a large balcony. The décor is dated and needs some paint, but alas the food is there. 4.5 stars on the food, 3 on Décor for me…
