Now I understand why people wait for an hour to get into this place. They have the most amazing clam chowder and excellent fish. Food is great, staff are friendly & it looks nice and prices are fair. I am not sure what else one should expect from a restaurant & don't understand the negative comments from some people! I... More

We have been coming to The Fish Company for many, many years. They have the best clam chowder I have ever had. They have undergone an amazing remodel and the "new"restaurant is just beautiful. The food is still outstanding as well as the impeccable service. I go to Weight Watches and they are very receptive to preparing my meal they... More

I've never quite understood why people will wait two hours for a table at the Original Fish Company in Los Alamitos. Or why the restaurant won't take reservations. There is no ambiance in the parking lot, which is about the only place to wait. If I were inclined to wait that long for a meal (I'm not ) I would... More

This restaurant is undergoing a major refurbishment which is nearing completion. The results are terrific. The dining rooms are now modern and elegant and have a spacious "feel" about them. The rest rooms are top drawer. Despite it promoting itself as a fish restaurant, it still has to master cooking and presenting fish. The tendency is to overlook and dry... More

The Fish Company has the best clam chowder ever! My brother and sister in law were out from Nashville and we took them there. My brother raved the whole time he was out here about the chowder and all the selections. I have a brother in law that would eat there every time he was down visiting. He loves it... More

Last night was my first time back to the Fish Company since they started their remodel, and we took a friend there for her birthday. At 6:15 on a Monday night, the parking lot was packed and there were a large number of people waiting, even though there were empty tables. The reason the Fish Company was one of our... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stop at The Original Fish Company. The server was attentive and regularly stopped by to ensure I didn't need anything. The food was phenomenal! I had the Shrimp, Scallops, and Fish skewer and enjoyed it tremendously. It was just the right amount of food for the calorie conscious. The prices were reasonable considering the elegant ambiance...

There were four of us visiting and having lunch here on a busy Sunday afternoon around 1:00 pm. I ordered halibut fish & chips and it was delicious. Another person ordered the chef's salad with shrimp, it too was great. My wife ordered the fresh/frozen halibut and it was so over cooked she had a hard time cutting it with... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the area where we used to live. They have 2 kinds fo chowder, red and white. Both are excellent but I prefer the white. Apparently the same guy has been making it for years and he is the only one with the recipe. The fish here is always fresh, you can buy fish to... More
