The woman answering the phone was completely rude- if I hadn't had the groupon I would have dined elsewhere due to her rude behavior and impatience on the phone. Our particular waiter was a nice male.

What You'll Get

Although the ocean's origin remains a mystery, scientists hypothesize it resulted from a meteor-sized water balloon striking Earth or a heat wave that annihilated an ancient race of snowmen. Theorize about the tides with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of steaks, seafood, and drinks at Wharf House Restaurant located at the end of Capitola Wharf.

Wharf House Restaurant boasts a menu loaded with seafood, pasta, burgers, and steaks and encircles its patrons in a panoramic ocean view. Initiate a tryst with taste buds and start off with pan-seared salmon cakes ($12.95) that prepare palates for beef filet mignon, ensconced in sautéed mushrooms and blue cheese ($23.95). Cheese-stuffed jalapeño peppers ($9.95) and Mexican prawns ($18.95) tickle jaded tongues with startling spices and unexpected jalapeño plumage. Kick weekends off with a bountiful breakfast such as a short stack of fluffy pancakes ($6.95) or greek omelettes ($8.95) overflowing with baby spinach, tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese.

Known for its scenic views, Wharf House Restaurant showcases eye-popping views of Capitola Village and Monterey Bay. Patrons can spot sailboats or watch the moon rise over the ocean after being levitated at a slumber party. Although this Groupon isn't valid for alcohol, Wharf House boasts a full bar of refreshing spirits to sip during the summer months when it hosts live music on its top deck, which provides a perfect view for hungry astronomers.

About Wharf House Restaurant

Sailboats skim across Monterey Bay under a sky dotted with gulls. This is the typical scene diners see at Wharf House Restaurant, whether they’re gazing out the dining-room windows or lounging on the rooftop deck. The coastal panorama perfectly complements the plates of prawns, crab, snapper, cod, and other freshly caught fish that ground the Wharf House's menu. Even breakfast is inspired by the sea: salmon scrambles, bay-shrimp omelets, and crab florentine help guests muster the energy to endure an afternoon of lounging on the beach. In addition to seafood dishes, the kitchen crafts filet mignon and grills chicken breast for hearty evening meals.

The dining room reflects the establishment’s penchant for the oceanic with life preservers, glass fishing floats wreathed in netting, and even an antique scuba-diving suit from the days before humans evolved their very own gills. In the summer, classic rock and blues artists entertain diners on the upstairs patio.
