Every thing looks like it is SO GOOD! We have a Chart House, but I don't know if it's the same company. It's also on the water like that. So pretty. I've been to the Ghiradelli place at Downtown Disney, and their shakes are so divine. SO MUCH CHOCOLATE! YUM!
That dessert looks amazing. I can't stop scrolling up to look at it! For that alone, I'd visit this restaurant. Everything looks great and it has a great atmosphere!
This looks so yummy! With it being national ice cream day this week I think I definitely need to celebrate! Those look like some great restaurants and delicious desserts!! Thanks for sharing!
A huge part of travel and sightseeing is trying new restaurants. I wish I could get to California more because I just feel at home there. Out of the options presented here, I would select Bubba Gumps Shrimp Company. Having a variety of menu options is a must for this picky eater.
Oh my God, those desserts are to die for. The restaurants you mentioned sound really great. There is a Bubba Gump restaurant near my place and the food there is really good.
I've never been to California, but I would love to visit it one day.
I have never been to California , but Cannery Row seems like a place that I need to make sure to add to my list. The run Forrest run, just cracked me up and I can see myself holding that sign up taking a selfie. What is the name of the dessert that you had at Schooners Coastal Kitchen and Bar I would like to try it.
What a great selection! I really need to get out there some day soon. We have some great restaurants in NY, but I would love to get to the West Coast again soon and check out some of these. The whole area looks like so much fun and there is so much to do! Looks amazing.
We went to the Bubba Gump shrimp place in TN and it was good but I had a allergic reaction the sauce Rumalade sauce (spell check). The food though was great but would have been better if I could have sat by the water.
Cindy (Vegetarian Mamma)
The Fish Hopper looks amazing. I'd give anything, right now, to have a cool iced tea and sit out on that outside decking area. Wow, just to watch all the water and the beautiful things around there! I can just imagine the cool breeze! After I take in the view, I'd chow down on their good looking menu!
I have yet to visit California but when I do I will be all about the restaurants and vineyards. OMG! These desserts look great. I can see myself sitting out on a hot summer evening enjoying any of them. I love the summer for all things sunny and cold treats. California is lucky enough to have summerlike weather almost year round.
The view alone at Bubba Gump would be the icing on the cake so to speak! And I KNOW that the Ghirardelli Chocolate and Ice Cream shop would be HEAVEN! LOL. If I ever get to Monterey, I will be sure to try all of these out
