Years ago this was an ice cream shop on the corner of 4th and C St. I thought they were clever to turn it into a seafood place. I really like the fish & chips there. You can eat outside. It is across the way from the historical Petaluma Museum & Library so after eating or before be sure to... More

The food was very good, my wife had fish and chips w/ calimari and I had the pulled pork sandwich. All the food was very good even the fries. Drinks are very small, service was eh, ok I guess. Ice cream is good as well. Great little place to stop and eat.

This is not super "fast" food in that it is all obviously cooked to order. The fish is fresh, tasty and most importantly not soggy with grease. The fried calamari was excellent and one order was more than enough for two adults. The portions are quite large and a family fish & chips meal is very generous and a great... More

We were traveling through the area on our way to the coast and decided to stop for lunch here based on the reviews on TA & Yelp. This restaurant is basically an old drive-in like a Fosters Freeze or something. It has a small patio on the corner and an inside area that seats maybe 25. The staff wear 50's... More

I've eaten at 4th and Sea many times over the years, and it is one consistent restaurant. I find myself ordering the fish and chips, their nome de plume for good reason, again and again with coleslaw and garlic fries. The fish is perfect, flaky and white with a nice beer batter, the coleslaw is basic and none too mayonnaise-y,... More

It's a fish and chips in a fast food basket kind of place so don't be wearing your 3 piece suit. Fish that actually tastes like fish. I'm guessing it's local fish. Garlic fries had a nice garlic taste and topped with fresh chopped garlic. They were not using garlic salt so not sure how they were getting the garlic... More

Just great fish and chips. The menu actually goes far beyond fish, including burgers and chicken and Caesar salad--all really good--but good fried fish is hard to come by. The service was also excellent. We would definitely return here.

When that moment strikes me for good fish and chips, I go to Fourth & Sea. They have great garlic fries as well.... a very diverse menu.

What may be lacking in ambiance is more than made up for with the Food and Friendly Service. I'm local and I've tried many other places, but Fourth and Sea is where I always come back to for Fish 'n Chips. The Best, Period!
