If you are looking for great seafood, look no further! The food is fresh and is listed on a blackboard. You choose your fish, seasoning and how you want it cooked. I had grilled salmon over salad once and the fish and chips another time. Very casual and liquor is available. You won't be disappointed.

It's a popular casual spot. There was a line almost out the door to order. But there was enough seating and once we ordered, the food arrived very quickly, The fish tacos were generous and full of flavors.

We visited a friend of ours in Dan Diego and knew we had to get some fish tacos while in town. This place was worth the wait! It might seem expensive for tacos but the fish is very fresh and all the ingredients are high quality. They let you order by the taco and mix and match which fish and... More

My family and I had just finished traveling across the country and wanted to enjoy some fresh SoCal Seafood and a relaxed atmosphere. Based on the other reviews, we tried Pacific Beach Fish Shop and were pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh, and scrumptious. I have three children and all of them enjoyed their meals, especially the TKO tacos. Also,... More

A friend and I went on a recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. It was close by, and we were looking for some seafood before returning back home. My friend ordered a dozen clams, clam chowder and the chipotle glazed shrimp with the seaweed salad and onion rings. I tried the large shrimp ceviche and the lemon butter... More

Perfect casual dining - indoor and outdoor seating. Great menu with a lot of input from diner in fish and marinades preference. Lots of outdoor seating (covered and uncovered). Order at the counter and food brought to you. Very fair prices. Fresh and delicious. Large portion of fish and chips. Cole slaw additional side.

Easy drop-in restaurant, lots of patio seating, reasonably priced. We were in town for a regatta, great spot to eat if you are hungry, and a bit sandy from a hard day of sailing or surfing. Away from the hustle and bustle of PB or MB. Easy parking, good bar.

We went here last night for the first time. It is a walk up counter to order but then they bring your food to you when ready. Fish tacos run $4-$6 depending on which type of fish you choose. It is super fresh and tasty. Can't go wrong with any of them.

My family and I had dinner here a couple of weeks ago and I really did enjoy the food. The service however was poor, very hard to get our service to come over. I could understand if it was busy but it was not busy at all when we arrived.
