Located just a block off Cannery Row, it was easy to get to and parking was free. We got the fish and chips and clam chowder. The fish was fresh and tender, the batter light and crisp and the serving portion (4 large pieces) was generous. The chips (French fries) were just average--I could have left them off the order...

A simple fish shop with the front of the shop made into a small restaurant, or really more a cafe, but don't be put off if it is good quality fish that you want, simply prepared and presented and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed this as much as restaurants at twice the price because they delivered much more than our... More

The food here is good but it isn't prepared in a modern way. I had the Tuna served rare and it was very good served prepared with Garlic butter. The meal comes with vegetables and a simple pilaf style rice. Again good food but it reminded me of every nice place I ate as a kid.

It's off the main strip, but it's worth it for the food. The entrance is through the shop which also has a raw fish counter. It's not a fancy place, but the seafood is as fresh as you'll get, the service is excellent and the food is very tasty. Enjoy!

A seafood store with a small 10+ table restaurant. My wife ordered the fresh cooked peal and eat shrimp and was glad she did. I ordered a single order of fish and chips that came wit great fries and four pieces of fish.

Sea Harvest is located 3 blocks from Cannery Row on Foam St. The dining area is attached to an actual sea food market. The decor is nothing fancy, but the food is fresh, well prepared and cheaper than the same offered at cannery row. The service is excellent.

Stopped by today. We had fish, shrimp, and chips....not greasy, and very good. Prices are very reasonable, with attentive service. A fish market is also available. Will return! Always good, highly recommend!

great food as tried a different branch and would return here again. Popular with locals and it seemed single men (ladies you never know your luck!). I am sure my friend Larry would be at home here if they had a swimming pool!!!! The Rest Rooms were similar to the New Inn at Hadlow Down, stumbling around in the dark... More

We went here after reading the reviews for this place. The shrimp was delicious as were the clams. We ordered take out since the dining room seemed a bit cramped and loud. Great food! I would eat here again for sure.
