This restaurant is right next to the sea lions and you can watch them out of the window while you eat. Plus, there are wonderful views of the pier itself.
The Sea Lion Cafe has a pretty big menu, and they offer lots of sandwiches and salads. They have wonderful homemade potato chips here, fresh fish, and pasta meals. Try the crab cakes, with really quality crab and a somewhat spicy flavor. Also, the fish and chips were quite good.
This place is casual and most dishes are around the $8-$10 range. However, they also offer more expensive steak and lobster combos if you want to spend $30.
