Affordable fresh fish

This is not a fancy place but the food was excellent and the service was OK. I would definitely revisit this place.

This restaurant is not a fast food place or some expensive trap for tourists. It is a very cozy and comfortable place to take a rest, eat some seafood, make conversation. The personnel is very friendly and helpful. They have a great choice in a menu with very affordable prices. Location is also great, it is not far from seafront... More

Off of cannery row which is nice, an actual fish market where you can purchase fish. Upon sitting down was surprised with the menu, fresh fish market and they fry there fish or grill it. I was surprised with this and was taken back with lack of menu. Once I received the food I was immensely satisfied with the food.... More

Delicious fish and chips; good blue point oysters; and OK crab salad sandwich on a soft roll. Requested tabasco sauce to zip up the oysters- good service.

This is actually a fish market that serves as a restaurant in the evening. Everything is super fresh and tasty. We ate here twice during our stay. Basic maritime decor and simple chairs, tables, etc. Good menu. Frequented by loads of locals and had to wait for a table on Friday night. Speaks for itself.

I'll be short - we had seafood at this restaurant and weren't disappointed. Portions were large, the menu is extensive. The restaurant was a few blocks downhill from were we were staying. There is a counter where residents can buy various fish. All it all, a nice experience.

Nice place to eat off the Cannery Row hype. This is also a fish market and they will pack your fish on ice if you didn't plan ahead. Everything is freshly caught in season. Fish and chips are good, but you can also have your fish grilled.

We returned to Sea Harvest after a fabulous family meal last December. You are greeted by the market display of fresh, ice packed seafood and board of delicious specials. I had the sable which is a local treat sautéed to perfection, never overcooked, served with slaw. My wife had fresh rockfish blackened on a Caesar salad. The wait staff is... More

If you like your seafood and everything else deep fried you will like the food here and the price. Apparently they have never heard of "gluten-free" batter, unlike the fabulous "Legal Seafood" in Boston. The grilled fish was fresh and tasty but the overall smell of this "fish market" was not pleasing. The place was really dated and dirty looking.... More
