BEST. LOBSTER. TACO. EVER.

We read reviews & tried fish tacos here, but you can choose the fish in salad, sandwich, plate (with 2 sides) or taco. You choose your fish, then your marinade. We ordered the TKO tacos, delish! My hubby ordered a halibut taco with blackened seasoning & I ordered scallop taco with butter & added avocado, again delicious! They are casual,... More

Amazing fresh fish and shrimp! Best part is it is cooked the way you want with your choice of seasoning and sides. Love the grilled shrimp! Casual place with a great patio for outside dining. Bring your own wine because there is no cork fee. Reasonably priced meals.

So happy to know about this place! We just enjoyed our first dinner here, and I can't believe I hadn't seen them before now. This is a casual dining spot with GREAT food! You order at the counter and they bring your food to you. I had Ono with two types of spices. It was wonderful! Great fish, great flavor.... More

The night we went they had at least 5 kinds of different oysters. I did not partake but they looked incredible. We had their signature fish tacos and they were delish. We also had the clam chowder which was good. If I went back, I would have more of the fish tacos. It was a fun lively place but suitable... More

I really enjoy the fish tacos here, but would mention that they are on the pricy side and so is the beer. But, the price does not keep me from coming, but often the crowds do. I guess that is the good news/bad news for this place. It is good enough to see large evening crowds and some serious lines... More

All the fish dishes are simple and yummy. My favorite is the Fish Taco - you must check them out. Spicy and sweet.

Visiting San Diego and in search of good seafood in relaxed environment, have the spot for you! Fresh fish grilled perfectly with awesome seaweed salad. Very casual and relaxed atmosphere, no frills, but great food. In the hub bub of PB. Order at the counter and pick a great table, and watch a big screen.
