You can pick one, two or three pieces of fish. I was going to go with three, but then I saw the size of them on someone else's order and decided on two. They were huge. The fish and breading was perfect. I highly recommend this place if you like fish and chips!

Each piece of fish is about 12 inches long! I had the Captain's Plate which was 2 pieces of fish, 2 shrimps and 1 side (slaw, fries or chowder). My companion had the Sampler Platter which was 1 piece of fish, 1 shrimp, fries, slaw AND chowder. The fish is most excellent and the shrimp were OK. Their list of... More

Basic, good fish and chips or very good black beans or coleslaw (too much mayo.) Good prices and a fun location on the harbor, but not worth a long drive for, there's better places in San Diego.

Food is always fresh and hot. Great place for a quick bite. Fun view but watch the birds, they will steal your food. Watch the boats and tourist- its fun

Best spot for quick super casual buy at counter sit down and eat fish and chips crave! Flip flops ok see tourists, local boat folks, beach goer's, and can sit outside see seagulls and harbor boats. Love fish tacos here! Huge and I keep coming back.

If you are near Oceanside, CA or traveling to and from San Diego, you must stop here. Best I have ever had. Fresh, cooked just right. Very nice place in a Harbor setting. Come just before 11 AM, as the lunch crowd appears a little later. Try the Captains platter, 2 large pieces of real fish like ling cod or... More

Highly recommend the Fish Tacos special. Two large battered cod fillets served in fish tacos with tasty slaw.

You cannot go wrong if you love authentic Fish and Chips! RUN, don't walk to Harbor Fish and Chips! If you love eating by the beach, this is the place. You're actually looking out at a bazillion dollars worth of boats and yachts, and the weather is nearly always, PERFECT!

This is a great place for fish and chips. Also, a great place to have a bread bowl of chowder with great Oceanside local views. There are always lots of people walking around and since it is right on the marina, great views of the boats, fauna, and sunset. VERY casual! If you like slaw, the slaw here is pretty... More
