It is nice to be in a place that has a sense of the past. Let\nit be what it is! I have been there a number of times and my guests have always enjoyed the food and the view.\nIn a day of cookie cutter chains its fun to go to a place that does remain unchanged.

Pros: Lost in time

Can't beat a nice basket of calmari and chips from the fish counter while visiting ""Woodies on the Wharf"" or a HUGE shrimp louie while watching the sunset with someone.

WE love going to this place as a family when we go to the pier. The food is great and the seafood is fresh. The view is incredible. The service is fast and first class. Love the clam chowder and the fresh salmon

I know that it has a lot of really busy nights but I have always had great service and great food. I love the pacific red snapper! I have never had any bad dinners here.

Simple- but good. FRESH Fish at its finest. They are Italian-they consider you part of their family. Don't expect fine dining- do expect wonderful food. Best Price Value on the Wharf.

We took a large birthday party (22 people). The restaurant was very noisy with a bar attached to the eating facility. Loud, drunk patrons. Sent 4 meals back because they were not edible. I ordered halibut, which was brought to the table luke-warm and soggy. 80% of the meals were not good. We paid the $453 bill with disdain. The place needs updating. \r\nWe will not waste our time going back., and we live locally.

Cons: Everything about the restaurant is negative.

When we arrived for a romantic dinner to watch the sunset, we were told it would be 10-15 minutes. We sat outside and enjoyed a drink overlooking the water. We watched a table of two finish their meal and we were told we were next. The two ladies at the table after they appeared to finish their meal, proceded to go outside and have a couple of cigarettes and take pictures while still leaving their purses on the table. We aked the waitress/hostess whom we gave our name to and she said she would find out what was going on. By this time there were quite a few people waiting to be seated. Instead, their waiter went outside, took a drink order and served them drinks while their table inside had dirty dishes. A busboy came along and cleared the table only to be reprimanded by the waiter who said they were not finished. They were out there about 20 minutes by now. We were now waiting a total of one hour!\r\n I again spoke to the waitress/hostess who did nothing. I found what appeared to be a manager who heard my story which was basically confirmed by the bartender. The waiter started to argue with the manager. \r\n I was disappoined, told the manager we were done. We don't know if the food was good, The manager would not let us pay for our drinks. \r\n We ended up going a couple of doors down to the Miramar where we were seated immediately and enjoyed a wonderful meal by an attentive waitress. BTW, We left them a nice tip for taking such good care of us. \r\n\r\nThere is no reason to put up with poor management of a restaurant when there are so many choices to get a good meal and spend our money.

A trip to Santa Cruz isn't the same without stopping by Stagnaro Bros. Seafood. It is located at the end of the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf and has a great ocean view.

Back when I used to eat fish, I had a hard time finding a place with better fish than this place. The prices are surprisingly good for what you get.

The side vegetables are not the greatest, but it doesn't matter - it is all about the fish.

PROS: The best fish, reasonable prices
CONS: Nothing else is really good here but who cares

What a menu! It's hard to find so many different types of fish at one restaurant. I orginally was going to order their Seafood Treasure (many types of deep fried fish) of Fish N Chips but my server talked me out of it. The explanation was a great one. Why have deep-fried Fish N Chips (which you can find at all seafood restaurants) when you can choose from almost 20 different types of fresh fillets! I settled on my server's recommendation, the local sandabs, and wasn't dissapointed. If you go, make sure you eat in their Upper Deck and ask the server what's really good. With so many choices it nice to have some expert advice.

This place needs to change their recipes on their foods. What you would think would be hard to mess up such as fish 'n chips or even a plain old grilled cheese sandwhich is done at this restaurant. Their food is so tasteless and really poor quality. Save your $ & DO NOT eat here. The only thing that's nice is the view & friendly staff.
