I have been here twice. Outstanding little place. Very crowded and popular with the yuppie and surfer crowd. Great food and very friendly and professional service. This time I had the Buffalo Shrimp appetizer and Mahi Mahi with a side. Both plates were outstanding. Very good drinks. This is a great place to grab something to eat and a few... More

Had really enjoyable dinner with family at Fishbar. Menu is extensive. Great cerviche. Excellent fish tacos. Lobster mac n' cheese was yummy and decadent. Service was friendly. There are quite a few flat screens which made it feel a little bit like sports bar which felt like it takes a way from the ambiance just a bit. All in all... More

On a Monday night at 7pm the place was packed. The tables are close together, which didn't bother us, but if you want private or romantic this is not the place. We had very good service. Food was very good ... pasta marinara with shrimp, grilled salmon, mahi mahi. Meals were generally around $15 with $22 being near the top.... More

A fairly new seafood restaurant that is a favorite of our son in Manhattan Beach. Good food in constrained quarters, so it is culturally appropriate.

What a way to end our 7 week trip of a lifetime. We caught the ocean express bus from our hotel to Manhattan Beach and walked to this restaurant for an early lunch. We were greated warmly and shown to our booth. We started with Washington State oysters with chilli sauce and fresh horseradish accompaniment. Yummo. Superb. Next followed the... More

Reasonably broad menus for both food and drink. Well executed items, but not stellar. A specialty side of lobster mac & cheese was fine, but nowhere near the best I've had.

Great food, with a good variety on the menu. we were recently here with our 2 and 4 year old. They did a great job with the kids, and allowed us to all enjoy the meal. Prices are reasonable too.

Those of us who live around the South Bay take our fish tacos very seriously. Fishbar has a great fish menu, and top notch Tacos. Great bloody Mary's also....parking can be a bit of a hassle depending on when you go, but the visit there will be worth it ....great food!.

The food was good, and the menu was large. Had a hard time deciding what I wanted! Good atmosphere and location, but there service was not very good when I was there.
