Nice dinner while here on business

This place was great. I came for dinner while I was in town for business. The set up is pretty cool, you choose you fish, then pick a marinade, and finally how you want it (taco, salad, plate). I had the blackened mahi salad. The fish was very tasty and the salad was a nice way to have it. They... read more

We all loved the tacos. We also had a fish shop dozen oysters which were very good and a huge basket of fries and onion rings. It's a cool place give it a try.

Took our three generations group of seven for dinner and had an incredible meal. Nice to see beautiful fresh fish in the case. Great selection of fish and how to have it seasoned to our own preferences. We ordered way too much food, two tacos each would have been plenty. The little kids had fried fish and shrimp perfectly cooked.... More

Many varieties of fresh fish each fixed several ways (choose your fish, choose your style). Salmon fillet was excellent. Unfortunately fish and chips is one of the few (or only) dish using frozen fish (Alaskan cod) and it was somewhat mushy. Eat indoors at picnic tables or outside with heat lamps. Food comes in cardboard "plates". Stand in line to... More

What a nice spot in PB, San Diego. We went with friends for a late lunch and it was packed but we managed to be seated and served quite rapidly. Fresh fish and tasty plates! Wow, definitely worth it.

Lovely lunch sitting in the sun on the patio. I had an Ono taco with house marinade and a diver scallop taco with garlic butter. Both very very good!

The fish tacos here are out of this world! I think I could have eaten 5 of them. I'm going to have to make it a point to visit this place again next time I'm in San Diego.

This is a must in San Diego, best fish tacos in town! It's a tiny joint but the food is out of this world! Lobster & fish tacos melt in your mouth... They had jalapeño fish poppers as a special...never tasted anything like it. This will be the first stop on our list the next time we return!
