Cool Little Restaurant with Great Fish Tacos

We were looking for a place to grab a quick lunch and wanted a local place. Spencer Makenzie's was awesome. It is a very small place with an outside patio with walk up windows, a counter with about 10 seats, and small seating area with a few tables. It is definitely California casual. The... read more

This place is always busy, but worth the wait. Get the fish tacos. You won 't be sorry. It's easier if you get them to take away.

We ordered take out for the office and some of the group had not been there yet, including me! Awesome fish tacos! The rest of our group had fish burritos which they all loved too. Great that they give you so many side sauces to choose from. Will definitely return when in area.

Based on reviews was looking foward to claim chowder. Very bad. To loose to salty . Strong taste of bacon? Really bad!! The picture on their web site it looked really good and thick. Dont waste your money and time on the claim chowder.
