Scales Seafood & Steaks

Creating a restaurant within a “stones throw” of what many have called one of Monterey Peninsula’s most famous restaurants, Old Fisherman’s Grotto, is an endeavor we took very seriously. After all the “Grotto”, considered a world-renowned eatery, has been part of our family legacy of over 60 years, dating back to our father, the “legendary” Sabu Shake Sr.

We are proud to bring you our newest restaurant, Scales Seafood & Steaks, an entirely unique seafood and steak restaurant perfectly situated on Fisherman’s Wharf. At Scales we offer a distinctly new dining experience with compelling views of the water. We feature fresh seafood, steaks, salads, pastas and desserts. With our beautiful lounge, you can indulge in an exotic cocktail or a fine wine from our extensive wine cellar, while enjoying our gorgeous harbor and bay views.

The restaurant is open from 11 am - 9 pm. 

The “wow factor” is a longstanding commitment at Old Fisherman’s Grotto and The Fish Hopper and like our other restaurants, Scales blends ambience, superb customer service and our award-winning international creations. Like our other eateries, Scales will participate in the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “Seafood Watch Program” and serve only sustainable seafood. We also serve only certified Angus beef.

In addition to our main restaurant, Scales offers banquet facilities accommodating up to 130 people and perfect for any event. We also have a casual dining café & deli, a fresh fish market we call “Scales on the GO”, and a gift shop. We offer five experiences, all under one roof!
