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

Eat in or out and watch the Catalina boat come in or leave. Most kinds of fresh fish for he buys directly from the incoming fisherpeople. Prices are reasonable--try it --you will like it.

Jon's has been in Dana Point for over thirty years - a hole in the wall? Definitely. No alcohol (just sodas or water) , eat off wooden bench tables, but the food is great. Fresh fish, cooked the way I like it. I had grilled salmon this time, and it was a big serving, cooked perfectly, and I was very... More

After a few years we came across this restaurant on this trip. So impressed we returned with the rest of the family for a second visit. The fish and chips are excellent (and from a Brit that is serious praise). The combo is fantastic and my wife and I did learn to share on the second visit having been bitten... More

Love this place.. A real fish market but I have only visited to dine. patio,outside with picnic benches. Best fish and chips around.. The light crispy batter fried fish is delicious. I have also had fish tacos that were good. My friend had a fish combo plate that was just OK, the fried fish is definitely the right choice.

This local hangout used to be very good many years ago, but not anymore. We live locally and frequently go to the harbor for walks and to enjoy a meal. We stopped eating at this place about 2-3 years ago. This weekend we decided to give it another chance since we were pressed for time and did not want to... More

A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend went here for lunch. He has been going there for years. He had the fish and chips and always ask them to substitute the fish for halibut. They always accommodate him even though it costs just a little bit extra. The halibut here is always fresh!

Great place to sit and relax. We also order our fresh oysters for the holidays there every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas. The place is amazing. You can place an order for any type of fish to take home to cook. Or you can dine there.
