For most people, a vacation is a chance to unwind and escape from a day to day. However, some find inspiration and prospective business opportunities during their travels.

That’s what happened to John Hugh and his wife, Donna, when they were traveling south from Maine on vacation. “We took a drive down to Georgia and made our way back up and fell in love with Corolla,” he remembers.

In Maine, John worked as a fisherman, scallop diver and lobsterman, along with owning a lobster wharf. There, he also opened his own restaurant, bringing the offerings of the sea to diner’s tables.

It wasn’t until that trip to scenic and serene Corolla that John considered opening an additional restaurant. When a building in the Monterey Shopping Center was available to purchase, he made his move and opened Sun Fish Grill in 2009.

Sun Fish Grill is a family-friendly seafood restaurant with the space to accommodate large parties. According to John, the scallops, haddock, flounder and crab cakes are some of Sun Fish Grill’s most popular seafood menu items.

“We try to get all of our seafood as fresh and local as possible,” John says. He explains that the restaurant uses u-10 scallops, “which means there’s less than 10 to a pound,” he explains. The pan seared sea scallops are John’s favorite dish to prepare.

In addition to fresh seafood and local fish specials, Sun Fish Grill also serves steak, chicken, pasta, vegetarian entrees and offers a full kid’s menu to cater to every diner’s appetite.

Complementing Sun Fish Grill’s generous food and drink menu is the casual, inviting, family-friendly atmosphere. “It’s nice to see families come back year after year,” John shares. “One of the highlights of owning a restaurant in such a family-focused destination, is seeing generations of families return each year. It’s great getting to know our customers and watch their kids grow up.”
