One of the lovely spots to visit around Orange County is the Balboa Pier. I really love the relaxed atmosphere here. Aside from the Newport Beach Boat Parade, there's the beach, dining, and people hanging around the pier with their bicycles or roller blades.
Anyway, it's January, but it sure feels like Spring or even Summer these days. I got here last weekend, but it was pretty hot. There were people swimming and sun bathing like it was August.
Also, love the fact that you can still get parking here because it is still January. Parking does become much scarce as you move into the summer months. I'm going to enjoy it while I can.
P.S. If you like ocean fishing, this seems to be the spot for you too. There's always a whole flock of guys fishing at the Balboa Pier.

We decided to go with the Crab Cake & Clam Chowder for appetizer. The Cannery is known for their seafood, and I got to tell you both dishes were delicious. The clam chowder was packed with flavor, and it was very creamy. And the crab cake was generously filled with crab and cooked perfectly.
With our expectations now up with the appetizer, we ordered the filet and the seafood salad for the entree.
Awesome! The filet was tender and packed with a lot of flavor. The veal jus complimented the meat and the roasted vegetables perfectly. Very well made. And the seafood salad? Well, just look at the picture above. You see that The Cannery is not shy about giving you a lot of good food. Very generous portions of seafood on the salad. I was surprised to see that they can offer all this for only $20.
And after our entree was the Chocolate Molten Cake. It was good, but we were pretty full by then, so we got one for take out, and ate one at The Cannery.
The Cannery was a great first choice to kick off our Newport Beach Restaurant Week! It is located in a very cozy location in Newport Beach where you can enjoy little walks after your meal. For only $20, it is a must go restaurant in my opinion.
