I have been coming here for fish tacos, fish and chips and hamburgers for years. You are literally sitting overlooking the docks, the harbor, and many sailboats. There is always a line to order, because the food is darn good! The pieces of fish are enormous. I can eat one. When you order a fish taco, outcomes a giant taco,... More

This is a fun little place. The fish and chips are really quite good. I also have enjoyed the fish tacos and the clam chowder here as well. Not a sea food lover? The burgers are a great alternative. Why the 4 points vs 5? It is just a bit pricey for a "fast food" joint. Still, give it a... More

The food is great, prices very good, and the outside tables where you can watch the sea birds, boats come and go, and many days listen to the sea lions. Love this for a kickback lunch.

Great Fish and chips for a reasonable price and quick service.not much of a fish eater but the fish and chips were awesome. Outside seating gets a little sunny and hot is the only issue we had. Soda fountain was a plus. Was recommended by a friend and will go again.

Stopped in on our trip from Vegas to San Diego. The setting is wonderful right on the harbor. We ordered the fish tacos which were HUGE...however, there was WAAAAAAY to much slaw. I'd rather see the tacos smaller with less slaw. The fish...the star of the dish...gets lost in a mountain of slaw. The fries also get soggy being buried... More

Large portions, enjoyed the sampler plate, and fish and chips. Skip the Hawaiian burger - it was canned pineapple and swimming in bland teriyaki sauce. Service was a little slow, but they were busy and you can stay occupied people watching. Right on marina, beautiful place to enjoy a meal.

Very good fish and reasonably priced. The place is very well located at the Oceanside harbor with a good view. The variety is not so large but the food is excellent. We enjoyed Alaskan Cod and shrimp as well as clam chowder soup. The staff is very friendly and the place is decorated with many pictures of fisherman's captures, -specially... More
