I stopped in at Marion's Fish Market and had lunch one day while walking down by the harbor. I found the staff very friendly and had the grilled fish tacos. They were good but nothing fancy just decent average fare. The beer was cold and the view was great facing the harbor.

I had the special which was Mahi Mahi fish tacos with pineaplle salsa. What could be nicer than great tasting tacos a cold beer a sunny day sitting overlooking the bay? Excellent 'fast food' joint in Seaport Village. Not too expensive

This place was great. The food was very good and the price was right. We ate here 3 times during our visit. Family run with great service. We met 3 generations. Quick service. Will go back on our next visit.

Marion's brings home all the style and authenticity of Seaport Village, arguably one of the top tourist destinations in the world, with class and charm. This place delivers the real deal, as an anchor in the chain that is the seabreeze walkway. You can't miss it, because it is the last in the row of restaurants. But don't hesitate to... More

Hubs had fried fish, I had fried shrimp. It was about average, nothing remarkable but nothing horrible either. It was just fuel before we went to the USS Midway museum. The cole slaw though could use a bit more vinegar\mayo dressing.

We were surprised by the previous positive comments from customers. The food tasted like the deep fryer. The tacos were mushy and lacked freshness. I watched a bowl of chowder which was drawn up for another customer poured back into the warming container. Speaking of the chowder, notice I didn't use the term "clam" because there was none to be... More

Whenever we are in Seaport Village, we always stop by to order fried oyster from this place. Three big battered oysters is for $6.50. Yesterday, they might not have big oysters, instead we got 6 pieces small oysters. Still, we liked them especially the portion was good for quick snack while waiting for our friends arrived. Their crab cakes are... More

This restaurant has stickers claiming to be a people's choice establishment, but they must be outdated. We found the fish tacos to be nearly tasteless and the tortillas chewy, like they were microwaved. The popcorn shrimp were okay, but the fries were soggy. We did not finish our lunch. This restaurant really needs to consider quality improvements, beginning with a... More

The worst fish tacos ever. The tortilla was stale and crunchy. Shells are crunchy, tortillas are soft. Fish was over poked and dried out. The sauce was so overwhelming and slimy. The accompanying beans and rice were bland and chewy. The only good thing was that it was cheap. Better be cause I threw most of it away. Even the... More
