Angelo’s Restaurant, Fisherman’s Wharf, Monterey, California

This image shows Angelo’s restaurant, and also illustrates the complex nature of the wharf at the time. It was not a simple, straight structure into the water, but had, as shown, side roads and docks, primarily for charter boats. These locations tended to attract sea lions and curious visitors alike.

The description states:


Looking down the south ramp past Angelo’s famous sea food restaurant trim fishing boats meet the eye riding gracefully at anchor on the blue harbor waters.

–Angelo’s was a landmark of the Wharf for many decades, and has changed hands like many other businesses, but the building still houses a restaurant called the Nino’s Wharfside.

This postcard likely dates from the 1950s.
