I've been to the Fishbar twice. The seafood there is excellent. I had their baked scallops once, very yummy. If you enjoy oysters, this place is a good choice. The bartenders also do an amazing job at making cocktails. My only issue with the place is the consistency. They have signs about specials all over the restaurant, some of which... More

We were there for a late lunch and had buffalo chicken wings and scampi linguini pasta, but it was really nothing special. We ate at Simmzy's in Manhattan Beach the day before and their wings were actually 10 times better. The scampi linguini contained a total of 3 or 4 shrimps... We couldn't figure how this is voted the best... More

Came on a weeknight in the summer with my son and mother. They sat us right away, which is nice when you have a hungry teenager. My meal was over cooked, they forgot our appetizer, and the place was really loud, with a few large parties and games on every tv. My son was still hungry so we asked to... More

Escaped the airport for a short drive for some good seafood. Food was great, service was good - there is a nice parking lot across the street so you don't have to hassle for parking. I imagine they get busy at times but we were lucky to walk right up and get seated

Visited on Wednesday which was crab leg night and wow were they amazing. Great atmosphere but particular areas were a bit loud but not a problem for me. Great appetizers, we tried calamari and crab fries!

We went for Happy Hour after a day at the beach. it was a perfect spot. Casual, sat at the bar. Bartender was very nice and knowledgeable answering questions about various vodkas. Calamari was crispy and good as was the coconut shrimp. Came back a couple of days later for dinner, much busier, a wait for tables but we found... More

Low key exterior, fun interior, very inviting atmosphere. I had a lobster roll -- one of the best I've had -- on both nights I was there. Service was very good. The menu has a great selection of seafood. Portion sizes are generous. I would recommend this restaurant highly!! Very pleasantly surprised at how good everything was!
