Great Value for Healthy Fish Plate

I thoroughly enjoy patronizing this restaurant because the service is friendly and efficient and the fish quality is consistently outstanding. The tilapia and mahi mahi are my favorites.

Do you like fish, zucchini, salsa and tartar sauce? Look no further, as this eatery satisfies all my cravings. SIMPLY ENJOY! Indoor or outdoor seating and lots of hungry eaters besides yourself....

This place is a casual eatery where you order at a counter and are given a number, after which, they bring the food to you. It is very reasonably priced and you get your order fairly quickly. I can be a finicky fish eater. I don't like a lot of salmon and fishy fish. I do love white flesh fish... More

I tried this place by following some yelp reviews. The people here were super friendly. My 2 year old must have made friends with all the servers. The portions were among the largest I have seen for seafood preparations. I ordered the catfish and my wife ordered the fish tacos. The fish was fresh, Loved it.

One of the most reasonable priced and quality, no frills, sea food restaurants in Irvine, with good services. A lot of selection on fresh grilled sea foods including Salmon; Trout; White Fish; Catfish; shrimp; Mahi Mahi; etc; Most meal will cost about $7 or $8 including 2 sides.

I've had grilled fish and fish n chips and they were both very good. This restaurant is very popular. Try to come early or late. The atmosphere is relaxed. Orders are made as one comes in the door. The menu is on the wall and there are printed menus as well. After paying the cashier, you can find a table... More
