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... read more

it's always fun to discover to locals favourite. The fish shop seems to be very popular with the locals. if you look at the lines! Yew, the line was long, my south cal people don't seem to worry if the wait is worth it, and so it was.. Everything here is fresh, well seasoned, well cooked. The blackened fish taco... More

We asked Siri where to eat and she listed the Fish Shop. So glad she did- TKO fish tacos and fish and chips were excellent. Loved the local beers on tap. Staff was fun and the place makes you feel at home.

This place has $1 oysters on the 1/2 shell on Thursday!! The place was hopping! My family really enjoyed the food. I highly recommend the sea bass sandwich and the tacos.

I'm new to San Diego and today I had the urge to go out by the beach and I ended up here at the Fish Shop. Ordered a plate of Red Snapper with 6 grain rice and seasoned veggies, and a glass of their Coronado brew. The cashier was great at taking my order! 22 minutes later I got my... More

This a middle of the road fish taco joint imo. It's clean and the fish tacos were good, but nothing to write home about. The fries were soggy. You have to place your order at the counter and they bring it to you table. It's one step up from fast food. however, they do have beer on tap, but you... More

Visiting san diego from australia and felt like fish and chips so found this place rated well via google so drove out there. Their fish tacos may be great but unfortunately we asked for grilled fish which was on the board and it came out battered and was very ordinary fish. Also chips (fries) were only ok.

My boyfriend and I ate here in June for dinner, parking was a little difficult because this place was packed but totally worth it! We chose to eat here because of the great reviews and we are glad we did. We both had a TKO fish taco and I had a shrimp taco and my boyfriend had a lobster taco... More

I've eaten salmon all over the world and if you like it blackened, this is the place! I usually get it on a salad, always fresh. My husband loves their tacos, we alway share an order fries or ceviche. They have a small but very nice craft beer selection. They are also pet friendly on the patio! We simply love... More
