Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Warm up to delicious meal camaraderie with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of seafaring cuisine from Princeton Seafood Company Restaurant in Half Moon Bay.
The Princeton Seafood Company is a restaurant and fish market that serves ocean-fresh seafood and more to eagerly awaiting hunger-havers. The ocean menu encompasses local favorites, pasta entrees, fried foods, and sandwiches and burgers. Choose a favorite such as salmon and cheese ravioli in creamy tomato-alfredo sauce with sourdough bread ($17.95), or mix it up with a fried combo platter ($16.95), with which customers can choose three featured fryers from a list of Pacific red snapper, jumbo prawns, clams, oysters, bay scallops, and calamari. Landlubbers who have yet to receive their sea legs can take it back to the range with a half-pound Monster Burger with onions ($8.95). All dishes can be paired with a variety of soups, salads, and appetizers to make for a meal with a course set to "multiple."
Mere steps from the fishing fleet at Pillar Point Harbor, Princeton Seafood Company has been frying and filleting homemade recipes from high-quality ingredients for more than 30 years. With fresh, locally caught seafood, live fish, and live crab, this harbor-side fishery was recently nominated as one of the Best Seafood Restaurants in San Mateo County by Best of the Bay TV. Enjoy a warm bread bowl of clam chowder in a comfortable atmosphere surrounded by redwood shiplap, nautical artwork, and mysterious, peg-legged sea horses. The on-site fish market provides visitors and the restaurant with fresh-caught fish such as halibut, rockfish, and a variety of shellfish to tempt on-site palates.
