Fast Fish

Snackbar for all kinds of fish, in busy but easily accessible restaurant. Good for a quick bite for lunch. Nice view of the harbour.

Ordered the mahi tacos with great hope. The fish was not fresh in taste or smell. I would skip this place if you are looking for an iconic San Diego fish taco.

Grab a quick fish taco on the waterfront. I went here for a fast lunch two days in a row while at a meeting in nearby hotel. Nice fresh fish taco with tasty salsa and a cold Dos Equis! Nothing fancy here but you can get a $10 lunch and eat outside on the sunlit patio overlooking the boardwalk and... More

Ordered the grilled mahi mahi tacos. Lots of lettuce, not much fish, and only flavor was the overpowering taste of the soft corn tortilla. If their other dishes are this bad I don't know how they stay in business.

Excellent food at a good price for where the restaurant is situated. You can sit and watch the ships go by or at the rear and people watch or listen to who ever is entertaining that day. Soft drink refills available for 50 cents

We came upon Marion's while strolling through Seaport Village. After a long day with a big appetite for some seafood, this place was just right. With a nice view of the bay and quick service, we were able to order our food and sit down at a table in less than 10 minutes, which is pretty good for fresh seafood... More

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.
