A 50-year Legacy
The tiny family eatery founded in the 1950’s by Sabu Shake, Sr. has endured and grown into one of the most beloved restaurants on the Monterey Peninsula. Like Fisherman’s Wharf, the flagship Shake restaurant has kept up with changing times and tastes and has outlasted almost all of its contemporaries.
Sabu was a hands-on restaurateur of the first order, negotiating daily with local fisherman, purchasing fresh produce from Salinas Valley farmers, and procuring beef directly from cattlemen. Today, because the Monterey area is blessed with proximity to both the Pacific Ocean and the incredibly fertile Salinas Valley, the chef is able to choose from the finest seafood and produce available anywhere.
Chris Shake continues in his father’s footsteps, serving innovative, internationally-inspired cuisine in an atmosphere of superb, genuinely warm hospitality.
Special Events & Promotions: The restaurant offers numerous private party configurations all of which offer spectacular ocean views. We can accommodate almost any size party.
