Great Choice for Manhattan Beach Casual yet Sophisticated

So Fishbar is a personal favorite. It used to be the old Baja Sharkeez where every Manhattan Beach young adult spent a period of "nightlife" time at one point or another. Sharkeez got "fancy" on us and moved to a different location and a restaurant family took over the eccentric building and... read more

First, the food here is delicious. Lots of fresh fish and shellfish prepared in many styles. The fact that this place is always packed attests to the quality of its food because it is not in a location that you would just stumble upon--and even when you are looking for it, it is almost a bit hard to spot.

I have visited this place a number of times and the service and food has always been excellent. There is always a wait to get in but around 6-7pm it has never been more than 20minutes. A must visit place if you are in the area.

Picked this based on trip advisor reviews. Very glad we did! Food was great...service so, so but the food was worth putting up with a little scatter brained waitress. Just a block down to the beach...beautiful view.

While staying at a hotel near LAX, I searched for good seafood restaurants nearby and found this cool spot with good food and good service! It was about 15 minutes to the restaurant and was well worth it. Just make sure to call ahead and make a reservation since it was full. You will enjoy it!

Great fish! Everything was prepared to perfection. Extensive regular menu + special nightly menus. Taco Tuesday menu listed about 10 varieties. Excellent service from the time we walked in the door until the check arrived. Fun atmosphere with funky beach decor, lots of sports tvs, but not too loud for easy conversation. What's not to love?

My wife and I have gone to the Fishbar twice and have been very happy both times with the quality of the food, the comfortable ambience of the bar and restaurant. The price is right as well! The specials are very fresh and flavorful. Can't wait to go back.

And the calamari was also good. They were short staffed but the waitress stayed friendly and did an amazing job taking care of everyone.

great food at a great price. even though i can walk to the place, i continue to go there . it's a combination of sports bar, eatery and gathering place. if you don't eat fish, no worries, great steak, burgers, fries and chicken. don't let the name discourage you from going. you will be pleasantly surprised. i have not yet...
