Great beer

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...

Fair prices, great neighborhood hang out! I was so happy to have oysters, and they were so good I had to order a second dozen! I will go here every time I visit Manhattan beach for sure!

Our clients at the credit union recommended this place and we visited around happy hour 4-6p. Many drinks and appetizers are very reasonable and plentiful. They have a special every night of the week. Tuesday was Taco night. We had blackened salmon and lobster tacos, with chipotle calamari for appetizer. Unbelievable!!!! Best, fresh seafood I've had in ages. The atmosphere... More

We bumped into this restaurant as we went to rent a surfboard accross the street. So we decided to give it a try after surfing and were so pleased that we went there again the day after. The place is very cosy, full of life and great food. The service is very friendly and the price really good. It's family... More

Great local restaurant, large full bar, multiple televisions for the sports enthusiasts and children friendly. Large menu with plenty of fresh fish prepared either simply over a mesquite or sautéed with different sauces. Active bar scene and happy hour in the afternoon. Fun Manhattan Beach restaurant.

The Fish Bar is a lively bar/restaurant with excellent seafood. The atmosphere is casual (televisions plastered all over the walls are distracting even with the sound muted), but the menu is sophisticated, varied and interesting, service is very good, and prices are reasonable. Both of our entrees were delicious (coconut-crusted mahi mahi, and seared ahi tuna) – perfectly prepared with... More

Excellent service and wonderful calamari. Ate there for lunch. Sit on the patio and enjoy the weather. Had the fish tacos and they were good not great. The lobster bisque is really flavorful with lots of lobster. Laid back yet a touch of elegance. 3 miles or so from LAX and short walk to the beach.
