Monterey Hill Steakhouse query
Was driving home recently, and noticed this restaurant. It looked like this place would have an amazing view. How is the food/prices?
With a view like I expect it has, I am sure you are paying for the view in addition to the food, but is the place worth it for a special occassion?
The early bird specials are worthwhile. If you order before 6 pm you get your choice of beef, fish or chicken items for something like $11. These are well worth it, and if you can plan your gathering to start before 6 pm it will be quite economical.
I go to "The Hill", as it is referred to by those who work in the area, regularly for happy hour. Lots of decent free Happy Hour food. The view is all freeway, a courthouse, and the old, empty ladies jail, although they have a pleasant enough balcony to sun yourself on even if the view isn't all that. The food, however, in terms of a lunch or dinner destination is not good. Kind of heavy and greasy, second rate quality.
