This is a great seafood choice for casual counter service. The fish tacos were good in part because of the great corn tortillas. Reasonably priced and a nice lunch portion.

It isn't fancy, and I ignore all of the touristy aspects of Seaport Village, but I continue to love the oysters here. I am finicky about oysters, and they are always fresh and cooked perfectly. On this trip, I also had the ceviche; it was flavorful. I will come back to Marion's the next time I visit.

Great little find! This is a small place where you order at the counter then take it outside. You can sit on the patio near the water (which is very pleasant!) or eat out in the plaza area. Very reasonably priced for the area. 2 fish tacos for $8.95. You can get fries or a salad or coleslaw with that... More

Food is good for a reasonable price. The "Marions plate" was more than enough for me at only $12. Local place and served by the owner. Not a big place but plenty of room in the plaza but the water view on the patio is the best.

For some reason Marion's Fish and Chips (never tried anything else at this place) really hits the spot for me. The fish is almost always fresh, firm and moist with a good crispy coating. There isn't anything special about the fries and the cole slaw is bland, but I keep coming back for the fish and chips...have been for 15... More

I would defiantly eat at this spot every time I come to San Diego. It has outdoor seating that sometimes catches a breeze from San Diego Bay.

I stopped here with my family while we were at Seaport Village. We were looking for some fish and chips and Marion's had them at the right price. My order came with 5 smaller pieces of fish while my wife had four slightly larger ones. Not the best fish and chips I've ever had but they were certainly good. All... More

We ordered $11 for a "bucket" and they told me it fed two people, but it was more like an appetizer for 2. The cup of shrimp cocktail had lettuce and no shrimp. We were so disappointed because we went there based on online reviews, which were completely misleading.

Service was a bit slow. Fish and chips were a little dry and overdone. Nice outdoor seating. Prices were decent for the portions, and would be good if the food quality was better.
