The food was the best. Even though its a self serve style restaurant the staff really could smile and be a little more friendly. We would send everyone here for the food however it is really excellent

Malibu Seafood is more or less a shack with only outdoor seating but the fresh fish they serve from their market stall on the premises is delicious. We stopped by in the evening, chose our fish and enjoyed a fish burger and fish and chips. It was excellent food at a very reasonable price for Malibu, directly opposite the beach... More

You get in a long line of cult restaurant groupees waiting to munch some overpriced fish and average fries. It is a pretty basic place where you stand in a long long line for the privilege of placing your order and then wait a long time to get your paper plate to carry into an open air lunchroom atmosphere.

We had such a great late lunch here it was amazing. I had the Sea Bass special it came with 2 sides ordered cole slaw and rice pilaf, we also ordered the peel and eat shrimp. The best rice pilaf I have ever had. We sat in the upper seating the view was awesome. I highly recommend Malibu Seafood.

I purchase fresh seafood and gourmet sides from the counter several times a week. The service matches the high quality of the seafood. There is rustic dining available with great closeup views of the ocean.

Driving down to LA from Santa Barbara, saw this was number 1 and we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Reassuringly long queue indicated everything fresh cooked. Kept it simple with deep fried fish, fries and a portion of slaw. Coming from UK expect a lot from deep fried fish and it lived up to expectations.... More

We were driving along on PCH in Malibu enjoying the scenery on a beautiful clear day when we stopped here for lunch. We split the fried seafood platter and added a side of the fish, so we could each have one. Everything was fresh and served hot. This along with the 8 ounce bowl of the Manhattan chowder was a...

This little restaurant just off US 1 has only outdoor seating at picnic tables with beautiful views. You order inside then go pick up your order. It's a little pricey, but the food is fresh and delicious. The mahi mahi was seasoned well and the fried scallops were absolutely delicious. It's a dive, but a fun one. It's not swanky,... More
