Very good seafood!

Great family atmosphere. Fresh and exquisite seafood-unadulterated! Prawns were too good and Honduran lobster tail was incredible! Beware, all the effort and attention are on the seafood and thus your veggie sides are steamed plate fillers. You don't care cause the seafood is once again, awesome. I... read more

I can't say much about the restaurant itself since we'd ordered our food to go. Whenever we are in California, we looked for seafoods and very affordable price. This restaurant had the seafood but not really affordable. A good meal will start you off close to $20 or more. We decided to order a calamari since it's our oldest son's... More

A fantastic selection of fresh fish. The portions are huge and for the price it was more than worth it. Both my wife and I could not finish our dinners and had to get a doggy bag. The portions of fish were twice the size of any restaurant I have ever eaten at.

-Hostesses went to get us a highchair and never returned. Left one person standing with no chair. -Sourdough bread was good. Warm and fresh. -Kids meal was fish sticks and plain boiled veggies. -Penne and seafood pasta was bland with over fried seafood. -Crab cakes were horrible. -Would not return and would never recommend.

Having grown up in the South where it is hard to find fish that is not deep fried, it was such a pleasure to discover grilled fish that not only tastes great but is significantly healthier. While I have heard a few complain that the side dishes are not elegant, I personally appreciate the simple and nutritious vegetables, tomatoes and... More

Great fish/seafood here. Besides steak they have no other meals so probably not good for families with kids, unless they like fish.

Large plates of food. Fresh fish and seafood from all over the US and other countries. Nothing fancy. Good service. No bar area. Seems to be a locals favorite

If you like fish this is the place to go! Many choices of incredibly fresh fish some of which we had not heard of before. We had the sablefish and opah fish. Bread was served first...some of the best we've had in a while. We also started with the Boston clam chowder and it was really light and flavorful. Fish... More

Have eaten at the Fish House several times. Located in the Carlsbad Village. The seafood is just excellent. When in Carlsbad we go there for seafood.
