When you go to Jon's Fish Market you will be treated to a great lunch. Try the Fish Tacos or the Shrimp Bowl, sit and eat them in a small dining area outside and enjoy. This is a go up to the counter and order place. You will enjoy this place.

My husband and I eat here periodically when I don't want to cook dinner. The fish and chips are the best we've ever had and we can take our dog with us...so, it is a family affair!

Mediocre greasy fish n' chips. They use frozen cod. ' Chips' tend to be limp as does the slaw. ---- BUT----For an extra fee they will use fresh fish from their fish case. Do this! Ask for crispy fries.

This place is popular be prepare to wait in line. Very limited seating inside as well as outside. Good food reasonable prices. Fish and chips are excellent as is the fish tacos. Look for an umbrella table outside the sun can be hot

Limited menu but great stuff. We had jumbo fried shrimp and fries. Shrimp were very good, portion large. We got the lunch to go, it was $18 with tax so not cheap but high quality and tasty.

We've been coming to Jon's for 15 years, and we have learned that it can't be beat for fresh fish in south Orange County. The fish and chips and shrimp and chips are state of the art too. Prices have crept up a bit over the years, but they are still reasonable for the quality. The employees can be a... More

Located in Dana Point Harbor close to the Catalina Express, Jon's Fish Market is a treasure. Eat in or take home, the catch is truly fresh. We enjoy the day's special smoked offerings, have yet to depart without a sampler.

The freshness of the food is great but the staff they hired were very unprofessional. They took our order and money and then sat around and talked loudly about their social life. I had the fish and chips and it was very tasty with 4 large pieces. However, it was served on plastic plates and I was left having to... More
