Large portions of delicious shrimp!

This place was just what we were looking for! Large portions of jumbo shrimp and chips. The atmosphere was fun and the staff were very friendly. A must try!

Very fresh fish, with lots of different preparation choices. Grilled fish is really grilled and not fried like in other places. Really recommend it.

Great fish sandwiches and Popcorn shrimp for kids. Everything was fresh. Popular place for visitors and locals. Wait in line was worth it.

We ordered the Halibut Fish Tacos and one Swordfish Taco. We loved the Halibut, but the Swordfish, not so much. Onion Rings were excellent, too! Fun meal, the whole family enjoyed.

Looking for fish tacos while in PB and came across this place. Old school fish shack atmosphere. Order at the counter and they bring it to you. Lots of fish options and capacity for customization. Fish tacos were pretty good but far from the best I've ever had and at $5.50+ each they're rather pricey. Quality beer selection, though quality... More

My daughters and I ate lunch here while in San Diego. The food was great and the portions were huge. The shrimp and chips had a dozen fat shrimp and the cups of clam chowder were more of a bowl size. We came hungry and left stuffed!

Having searched for a fish restaurant in San Diego we came upon the Pacific Beach Fish Shop in Garnet Avenue. We called first and a very helpful guy named Jason answered all my questions and invited us along. Parking in their lot was easy. We found Jason and he explained how things worked and served us perfectly. This is not... More

The food is so fresh here. They give you several options to customize your meal and every one I've tried has been amazing. I especially love that they put capers in the salad! It does get very crowded, so prepare to wait a bit. It's worth it.

They offer 7 varieties of oysters at a $1 each. Pay at the cashier, get your coupon and join the long queue with a drink at hand. You can mix and choose them but order your fill or you've to queue again. Also serves fish tacos and sushi but nothing to rave about here tho'. BYO wines is a draw... More

For a picky pescatarian this place is the ultimate in delicious reasonable dining. You get to pick your choice of fresh fish, how it will be cooked, what seasoning to add, and how it is to be presented: taco, sandwich, salad or dinner. Great healthy choices (or not!) lots of great sides. Take out is available. The staff is very... More
