Our History

Our Culinary Culture

Keepin’ it Fresh

For 37 years and counting, one thing that hasn’t changed is bringing in fresh, whole fish daily, cleaning and filleting them in house, and cooking them over our famous mesquite charcoal grill.

Scratch Made

We source whole foods, period. We strive to curate and prepare our menu in house to ensure consistent quality control and customer satisfaction

Customers are #1

Our customers are our friends and we treat our friends well. We pride ourselves on converting 1st time guests into loyal friends.

Sustainably Sourced

We didn’t come this far without thinking sustainably. Our backyard is the beach and we want to preserve it. Everyday we’re making food decisions that will continue on our legacy of responsible, sustainable sourcing.


For 37 years and counting, we have been growing and evolving with our community since. We continue to cultivate strong relationships with our local community by participating in community events, supporting local initiatives, and making lasting friendships with our patrons and vendors.

When we first opened Enterprise in 1977, we renovated this historic 1917 brick building to resemble any wharfside eatery one would find in any coastal town up and down the Pacific coast. Our more recent extensive renovations left the original hardwood floors, wood trussed ceilings and brick facade intact, but upgraded the decor and comfort level significantly. Old photos of local beaches and other ocean oriented sites decorate the walls. Booth and table seating is arranged around our exhibition kitchen in the middle of the restaurant. Fresh fish and other seafood is cooked over charcoal giving the dining room an excitement not found in many restaurants.
