Seafood Delight, a total surprise

we were waiting to pick someone up from the San Diego airport and just stumbled on this place..... and boy, are we glad we did. Everyone's dish was great, each better than the next one. Get a variety and share is my recommendation

Arrived at 2pm to an hour line, which we read about and was prepared for. They had a menu at the door and as you got near the counter. We decided on plates of Mahi and talapi. As we got to the cashier, we see a sign that says out of... you guessed it, Mahi and tilapia. After 45 minutes... More

Whenever I crave good fish, this is where I go. I get the grilled fish (usually wahoo, mahi, or shark)on a bed of greens and my husband,the fish and chips. The fish is deliciously succulent, and the chips are the best in San Diego. Go before 4:30 on a weekday for dinner. I don't try it on weekends. Fast-food ambience.

Market and Grill both: Nice Fish!! Wide selection, generous portions, reasonable prices, Clean facility; throw-away tableware. The pleasant, helpful staff assures ambiance but be prepared fir a line at peak periods. Chowder and calamari sandwich were both excellent.

This place does have very good fresh fish. The shrimp tacos I had were delicious as was my husbands lobster bisque but for the hour wait in a line that wasn't that long I expected more especially for the price. So if you have time to kill go here bit for the price you can get other seafood else where... More

I had the grilled shrimp chipotle taco. It was excellent. Teriyaki Mahi Mahi ala carte was very good. Mahi Mahi chipotle taco was a bit plain. Swordfish with lemon butter was dry and tasteless. Rice was sticky. Waffle fries were good. It might be that the fish that didn't have much taste would be better with a different sauce. I... More

Definitely worth the wait. Staff is friendly and aims to please. Seafood is fresh and delicious. Halibut with bronzed marinade in a taco is a must to try. Clam chowder was out of this world.

DH was really excited since this place had been featured on DDD! This was our first stop after getting off the plane so we were hungry! Timing is everything, I guess. Eating dinner at 3:00 = no line. We tried the fish tacos and they were good. You select the kind of fish you want, and the pieces were large,... More

Have to stand in a long line and order at the counter. Plastic everything - plates, silverware, cups. Just not my thing. But the fish was wonderful as well as the salad. The rice was gummy. Would not return. Dinner for two with two glasses of wine ws $51.57 so a good deal.
