Worth the search

I lived near several great seafood restaurants in Ventura and Redondo Beach, and have really missed simple grilled fish. Had the Halibut lunch special which included New England Clam Chowder, a little thick for my preference but plenty of nice sized clams, a nice filet of halibut and delicious... read more

I have to say I have had better seafood back in the Midwest, compared to what I had at the Wharf. The clam chowder was bland, not a hint of clams or the taste of clams and no seasoning. The clam strips were not strips, but just small pre-frozen and pre-battered very small pieces of clams. The service was the... More

Very disappointing after moving from the mid-west. The clam chowder was full off raw flour pockets and little clam flavor. To much mayo in slaw and all our fish were fried to long. The WAite staff were friendly and the food served promptly.

I had heard about this place for years but had never tried it. Honestly I drove by it for years and never even saw it. It is tucked away from the main road and is not in the best part of town BUT it is sure worth visit!! When you walk in you are greeted with smiles by the owner... More

A fishmonger whose display case smells as fresh as your fridge at home is always a good sign -- as fresh fish should have no off smells. While this establishment may appear a little tired and dated the food, beer and especially the service does not disappoint. We'll be back to enjoy more from their extensive menu.

Just discovered The Wharf on our last trip to Medford (we go every two months). Who knew that the best fish fry we've had in years would be in the valley? Fish is fresh and piping hot. Just the right amount of batter. Fries are crisp and tasty. Serving size is generous, too. Only downside is the tartar sauce -... More

My favorite seafood restaurant in the valley. I have always had great service and super tasty food. I enthusiastically recommend the King Neptune salad and the Lobster Roll. If you want a great Bloody Mary, try this place🍹.

We always get the fish and chips and have always enjoyed it. Chowder is good too. We eat out on the back patio, because we don't like the loud interior. Plenty of beer choices on tap. Service excellent.

We had read a good review about this place and were very disappointed with the food. It was like a funky fish and chips place with picnic tables and no service.
