I took my daughter, son-in-law and grandson to eat there and every meal was outstanding. It's one of their favorite places. Love, love, love it!

Fishery is a local restaurant that my entire family has enjoyed for several years. We eat at this restaurant at least once a week and also purchase fresh fish to take home and cook. They are also wholesalers to local restaurants. You won't find fresher fish anywhere in San Diego. Pricing is a bit expensive but as the old saying... More

Everything about this place is fresh and delicious. It had a very relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. Just one quibble: we ordered a bottle of white wine with our dinner, and as the evening progressed our wine became warm- if you decide to order a whole bottle of white wine, ask your waiter to place it in an ice bucket...

I liked this place. The food was good and it had a nice atmosphere. When you come to San Diego, you expect to get local seafood. The Fishery would have been better if it had a better choice of local beer and had at least one local fish item on the menu.

I went there for lunch and had the mussels as starter, plus the wild shrimp sandwich. Fish was really fresh and well cooked! The atmosphere was quiet and customers were mainly old people searching for some good food in a nice residential area.

Our family of ten enjoyed the great food and service at The Fishery. The halibut was among the best I've ever had. Everyone had a delicious dinner. The wait staff was attentive and patient with the children in our group. We did have reservations, which I think would be necessary on a busy night. Wish I lived closer to San... More

We love fish--especially that's fresh--and this is a great place for that! Our experience was very positive. A little pricey--but WELL worth it!!
