You would miss this place if you didn't know where it was, while you were zooming down PCH. It is not to be missed that's for sure. If you are traveling north on PCH from the Santa Monica area, you pass all the parked cars and beautiful houses, and the malibu pier. Then you pass Pepperdine and continue on up... More

Love Malibu Seafood, and a must visit with every trip to Malibu. A small shack just off the Coast Hwy offering great seafood in a very casual setting. You order your food and then eat outside. Picnic tables on one side of the small house and across the driveway is a covered patio with tables facing the Pacific Oceans. The... More

My go-to here is are steak fries and hearty size pieces of fish meal. While I've tried the fried shrimp and the chowder, it's the fish and chips I always order. I'm just not impressed with anything else. Try mixing the Tapatio in with the tartar sauce. Seating is all outdoors and if you're lucky you can sit at one... More

Traveling along Pacific Highway 1 we were craving fish and we saw a huge line in front of this place. This is always a good sign lots of customers means food must be good. The wait was about 30 minute, not terrible considering the length of the line; we got our food to go and decided to eat at the... More

Stopped for lunch here passing thru Malibu. Seafood was fresh and tasty, the best Ahi Tuna burgers I have ever had. The seating is great and view us amazing. One must visit here if its the only place you can stop.

I have been going to this place for a long time, since i live in the neighborhood. I usually stop after work to get some great quality fish to take home and prepare it on my own; when the husband is out of town, i eat a light meal there and when daughters or friends are in town and don't... More

I had read the reviews before we took our vacation and this was one of the places we wanted to make sure we went. We are sure glad we did. The line was about 20-30 mins to place your order but we expected it before we arrived. I ordered the sea bass plate and my wife had the scallops. You... More

Went there with a classmate of mine. He knows this place well. It was my first visit to the US. We had to wait for 25 or 30 minutes with a large crab with us to send a signal if there was a free table. We didn't want to sit outside. Inside we found a very noisy place with hectic... More

If you are visiting Malibu, you should have lunch outdoors not in a traditional indoor or chain restaurant. We found Malibu Seafood while driving the Pacific Coast Hwy. and noticed it right away. We felt that it could be the place for us to stop for lunch in a gorgeous sunny day. The place was crowded but managed to find... More

This informal outdoor restaurant is on the Pacific Coast Highway, on Malibu Beach. In addition to cooked-to-order meals, it also sells an excellent variety of fresh seafood. The menu features fried shrimp, scallops, clams, and calamari. Grilled items are generally ocean-caught fish other than shellfish. Grilled items are served with side dishes including salads, baked potatoes, potato salad, or cole... More
