Great Clam Chowder! – We were doing the tourist thing on the wharf and I was tasting the clam chowder offerings that most all of the restaurants hawk up and down the wharf. I thought Gilbert's (the restaurant, not the market) was the best of the group, so we we went in.
We weren't looking for food, but it happened to be happy hour so we sat at the bar and ordered a couple of drinks. The calamari appetizer was only $2 w/ drinks during happy hour so we added it on (the chowder was not a happy hour offering).
The bartender poured a couple of `healthy' drinks and brought us the calamari right away. As we were enjoying our calamari the bartender overheard my remark to the person seated next to me on the results of my clam chowder taste test. Within a minute or so he brought me a bowl 'on the house'!
It was late afternoon and we didn't stay for dinner, but I can attest to the friendliness of the bar staff, the great clam chowder and the fried calamari appetizer.
I love Gilbert's! – We just tried Gilbert's for the first time last night and all 12 of us loved it! Being the off season, there wasn't a crowd and we got a great table looking out onto the harbor. The prices are really reasonable for seafood in Monterey... for the most part from $10-$20 with most dishes sitting in the $12-$16 range. Gilbert came to our table periodically to check up on us, our drinks were never empty, and everyone loved their meals. Don't forget to look them up online to get a free appetizer coupon. Ours got us some wonderful fried calamari!
