Big Fish Grill

On Historic Old Fisherman's Wharf

Serving the Freshest Seafood.

Formerly the venerable Rappa’s Seafood Restaurant, we are excited to transform the location into Monterey County’s newest, freshest, seafood restaurant. Enjoy an all-new ambiance, exciting new menu items and best of all a special Locals’ Menu!

For more than one hundred years, fishing has been a vital part of Monterey’s economy. Monterey’s historic Fisherman’s Wharf with its colorful shops, seafood markets, and flavorful restaurants, is a reflection of that history. The Big Fish Grill celebrates Monterey’s fishing tradition and enjoys the Wharf’s most expansive, panoramic views of the working harbor.

Stop by and enjoy a cocktail and our stunning views at the restaurant’s bar and lounge. Our ambiance is casual California and it’s suitable for visitors of all ages. Come see for yourself. You’ll be glad you did. Buon Appetito!
