Very good generous portion of fish and chips

Very good generous portions of fish and chips. Located in Dana Point Harbor...parking was a little hard to find this time...usually plenty of parking. 4 pieces of fish with a crispy batter.

This place is a little out of the way, hiding amongst the tourist traps but it is worth searching for. We split an order between two of us and had plenty. It took a few minutes to cook up a lunch just for us. Lightly battered fish and tasty chips, and cole slaw is pretty much all on the menu... More

We were shocked by the amount of fish and chips and probably could have shared a meal. An order was four pieces of fresh fish lightly battered. Great to have more fish and less batter!!!! Fries were also very good and plentiful. Tartar sauce very tasty. I was not a fan of their coleslaw (very bland) although my husband liked... More

My wife and I had fish and chips at John's today. We waited in like for a few minutes, ordered our food and paid for it, about $36 for two orders plus small ice teas. When our food arrived they called our name and we carried the tray to the table. The portions of fish were huge, but they were... More

For the past 45 years, our family has enjoyed the traditional Fish & Chips platter at Jon's. The batter fried cod is crunchy on the outside while moist on the inside. Today, we opted out the fries for double cole slaw which is delicious. The same picnic tables and benches remain on the outside patio and the sea gulls are... More

Jon's is located in the small restaurant area near the Catalina Express and Dana Sport Fishing. They have an excellent seating area outside that lets you enjoy the sun and aroma of the sea. The menu is fairly simple. Fish and Chips, fish tacos and a variety of similar dishes. Everything we tried was good. Friendly people and a pleasant... More

If you like sword fish, this is the place to get it! They don't long-line, but rather use a harpoon, so the fish doesn't get dragged for hours and have it's muscle tissue get all worn out. It's firm and as fresh as you can every get unless you do it yourself! On many occasions we bring out of town... More

There is no need to go into the high end restaurants for good seafood at Dana Point. Jon's Fish Market clearly had the best fish and chips in the area. Even the locals agree that this is the place to go. It's very casual, but very welcoming. Not a huge menu, but our group had everything from a salad to... More

Our favorite "local" hangout for Fried Clam Strips - none of the major restaurants in Dana Point Harbor have them on their menus! Nothing fancy - you order at the counter and pick up your order when called!

We split a grilled fish meal...it was excellent...good cole slaw; fresh and made to order fish and fries. Will go back. NOT on the harbor, but worthwhile nonetheless.
