mother's day in monterey

hello! I'm thinking about taking mom to monterey and spending the day there. probably get an early start and hit up the monterey bay aquarium right when it opens. after spending some time in there... it will be time to eat. probably a late lunch, early dinner kind of thing. nothing too fancy or expensive... just something good. looking for something on or near the water. any recommendations? thanks!

  1. There is Blue Moon which is on Cannery Row!!! It is one of John Pisto's restaurants they have good food at a reasonable price not the typical tourist trap they have a great crab/avacado salad and mushroom ravioli neither were over $19. Or at the tin cannery there is Pelican Tavern. I haven't been there but have heard good things.
