Excellent, fresh seafood with an outside, Ocean view.

Fresh seafood across the street from Corral Beach; you can eat outside or take to the beach. Be very careful crossing the PCH as this is a busy traffic area. Please walk down to the cross walk at the Union 76 gas station. There have been several accidents due to folks running across the road.

Malibu Seafood is a fun experience with good food. Expect a line to order on a warm day. Eat at the outdoor picnic tables or walk to the beach. The fish and chips are great.

Park in the lot, wait in line, place your order and pay at the counter then go out find a seat and enjoy the view and smell of the ocean until you get your food. This is a fun and friendly place to have a meal with friends and family if you are spending the day at the beach. If... More

We stopped here for lunch and figured the place would be absolutely scrumptious since the line was practically flooding down PCH! We waited 10 minutes in line, so be prepared to wait. We tried fish and chips, squid rings, clam chowder, Pacific Red snapper, crab and shrimp salad,chicken strips, and giant steamed shrimps. We ordered a variety of food because... More

In 20 years, I've never, ever had subpar food here. I get fresh fish from the fish market and cooked fish 2 feet away. There's a covered, heated patio that looks out on one of the best beach views in town. Plus, you can even BYOB. Not only do they not care - they actually have can openers and wine... More

Right out of a `60s Beach Party movie. A no frills fresh fish market and patio cafe – right across the street from a quiet stretch of ocean beach between Malibu Pier and Zuma. Just fresh, delciously prepared fish (a la carte to dinners) from Ahi tuna, Onaga, Scotch salmon, Petrale sole, scallops, Dungeness crab, oysters, lobster, etc. etc. etc.... More

Went two times in three day on my honeymoon. Awesome fish, good price and dining watching the sunset from the "terrace" was amazing. Highly recommended if you're in malibu!Not so fancy but who cares about fancy in Malibu?:)

Quick little stop with a great view and fresh seafood! We had boiled large shrimp which were actually true to the normal large size and fish tacos were OUTSTANDING!! Definitely give it a try if driving the coast and need a little food to hold you over till getting to where you are going!

Knowing that this restaurant was #3 on Trip Advisor, I knew it would be a good choice...and when I got there, the 40 people in line in front of me pretty much proved it. Big problem - big popularity, no parking...not even in the paid areas (I went on a Sunday afternoon...)Two cops had positioned themselves to give tickets to... More

Alright - paying for parking or wandering around on the PCH where people get hit on the daily... pay the $5!! The line went quick enough, the selection of seafood is amazing and the scenery is much too pretty. However, the fish and scallop breading was season-less, the clam chowder tasted like white gravy and the availability of lemon would... More
