The fish tacos are HUGE. Ordered two of the and had trouble eating them and I have a good appetite. I ordered a grilled shrimp taco and a blackened tilapia taco. They were outstanding. My wife had the blackened tilapia plate and she was shocked when they bought her a half pound of fish. You will definitely have to wait... More

The Service was outstanding, My wife and Kids had the fish and chips and they enjoy every bite. The line was long but it moved quickly and everyone, seemed to understand that their meal was going to be delicious.

We were in the front of the line when the doors opened. It is not fast food as their sign tells you so it takes a while for everything. I ordered three different fish tacos. They were pretty good except the beer battered cod. Way too much breading and not enough fish. The lobster bisque was decent but with a... More

My daughter loves seafood and we live in CO so we promised to take her to get some in San Diego. In our family of six, two are seafood lovers and the rest of us are just so-so on the matter. We got there at 1... we waited over a hour to get to the front of the line. The... More

From the time we waited to enter the building and be in line to order our food until we got our food was 50 minutes. But it is well worth the wait. We watched the butcher cutting off fresh seafood to make each order individually and once we got our food, it was amazing. My husband and I each got... More

The Food.... Amazing!!! For our table we tried the calamari, the grilled shrimp, grilled shark, clam chowder and lobster and shrimp tacos. I cannot say enough about how good all of it was and that our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed everything. I was a bit disappointed that they were out of Mahi fairly early, but I would rather they...

This is a wonderful seafood place to eat! Be calm because you will wait in line for 10-20 minutes but the wait is worth it! You get to pick the fish and how you want it cooked! They have a lot of great marinades to choose from!

Awesome fish market. Just what this family of Minnesotans were looking for. A little unique in that you may need to wait in line for 20 minutes to order your food then they bring it out to you. The line moves efficiently though and the food is absolutely delicious. Worth your patience.

If you want great seafood made the way you want it then this is the place. You get to pick the fish of your choice, with your choice of marinade, in the fashion you want it. You have to wait in line to order, then delivered on foam plates with plastic utensils. The food is great and the setting is... More
