Everything is good here. It's a casual place with picnic tables and fresh sea food. They have a variety of wine by the glass or bottle. And best of all, they crack and clean your steamed crab. Worth every penny!!!

I have been eating at Captain Kidd sense the 1960's and it hasn't changed much. Fresh seafood is the what one comes here for. Located in the king harbor of Redondo Beach they have access to local commercial fresh catches. I have actually seen some of the whole iced fish still moving. I always choose a fresh fillet from the... More

It's a hybrid fish market and restaurant. The fish is always excellent, if a tad pricey. I suppose that comes from being on the fringes of a tourist trap in RB. The swordfish - when they have it, and this can be a problem for crab also - is always excellent, and they'll grill it right, but make sure to... More

Just a short walk from the Redondo Beach Pier, or park at the other end and you don't have to walk. It's a fish shop and/or restaurant. If you wish, you pick out your fish and they cook it for you. I also buy fish/shrimp there and take it home as it's fresh. It's not a fancy place but it's... More

We've been here many times and it never fails to deliver. Glenn at the fish counter knows what the best, freshest fish is and you can pick your piece and any size you want. Last night Glenn recommended the the most delicate tasting halibut. Then they prepare it for you ust how you like it. I like mine pan fried... More

Food is very good but because its so popular the queues are horrendous sometimes. However its not usually too bad until about 7.30pm.

Fresh fish and chips, a creamy and tasty chowder and delicious fish tacos! We ate and enjoyed. Not fancy dining, but so very worth it for value and flavour. We will be back!

I came here during my 1 night stay on Redondo beach. There is lots of seafood to choose from. I had the mixed platter of shrimp, scallops and cod. It was lovely. I wish I had a chance to go there again because I love me some seafood!

Amazing menu. Seafood cooked in a multitude of ways. Love sitting outside with the ocean in view. I had shrimp, my husband had a mixed platter of cod, shrimp, and scallops. I love the coleslaw. The treat is tiny bits of pineapple mixed in.
