This is a little old restaurant which has been here forever, across from the ocean in Malibu. It's always crowded and seating is outside on three levels all overlooking the water, or take-out. You must queue and place your order then find a bench or you can cross the road to eat on the beach. You can buy fresh fish... More

We stopped in here on our day trip in Malibu and were glad we did. Perfect for a quick stop and some fresh seafood. Loved the outdoor seating options and that it is BYOB. Many people around us brought a whole table setting with wine. We lucked out and had a bottle in the car to make the visit complete.... More

My favorite spot for Fish & Chips is Malibu Seafood. Always good. Plus you can't beat the view of the ocean right across PCH.

We stopped here for lunch while taking a detour along the Pacific Coast Highway. You order at the counter, then take a pager and pick your order up at the window when you get paged. I had the Ahi Tuna burger, it was chopped tuna, seasoned and grilled with lettuce and some mayo, delicious. My wife had a generous portion... More

We have now been away from the UK for two months and were missing fish and chips, so called in here to see how the Americans do it. Parked out front and were greeted by a bloke who gave us a good run down of the menu. Both said that we wanted as close to UK style fish and chips... More

Passing through and stopped off for lunch. Great menu at a good price. We had sea bass with rice and coleslaw. Large fresh fish, tasty rice. Also had the battered fish, chips, shrimp and scallops. Everything really tasty. So good we called in a few days later on our way back to LAX. Equally as good on the second visit!

When craving fresh seafood anywhere near Malibu- this is the place to go- Malibu Seafood has been a Malibu tradition for many decades. My wife and I visited the first time and met a friend there for a late lunch of superb clam chowder and fresh, large peel-your-own shrimp and fries- In addition to a restaurant, it also offers the...

We stopped by the Mailbu Seafood Patio to grab some lunch on a Saturday. There was a line out the door, although to be fair their isn't a lot of space indoors so I imagine it is almost always out the door. I think we waited in line about 10-15 minutes. While ordering, I mentioned to the woman at the... More

Wife and I had dinner at Malibu Seafood after a day on the beach. We tried a little of everything and most were really good. Here is my two cents: Fried is the way to go: We had both grilled and fried and the fried fish was the hands-down winner. The crispy, flaky batter on the fish was tremendous. I've... More
