“Fish without fuss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Been a customer for 17 years. The place is always busy but more so in the summer. Prices are a bit high but well worth it. Even though the fish and chips sell,the best there are loads of other things that I like much more.

“Had to try it out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Visited Malibu Seafood April 7th. Drove by a few times over the weekend and saw long lines, and decided to go after lunch and before dinner, 3:30PM no lines! We had the large shrimp- and the Red Snapper, the shrimp was great!

“Best Seafood in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Basically a shack across the street from the beach serving great, fresh seafood. There is a bit of a wait because the fish is prepared to order. Some of our friends bring their own table cloth, candles and china and plate the food which otherwise comes on paper, and eat in one of the covered buildings. There is also a small store at the entrance where you can buy seafood to grill at home.

“Great seafood with a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

This is our first stop everytime we come to California- because it kick starts our tradition. We love the view and the seafood is good too. The kids enjoy it, there is normally a line so try to go before the lunch rush or dinner rush. Bring a jacket at times it can be chilly with the wind but it is worth it, all seating is outside.

“Lot's of great food, not fancy, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Atmosphere is very, very beachy casual. It's hard to explain you order like at a fast food, almost diner style. there are many outside/covered buildings with picnic tables. But the food is fantastic. I had the large shrimp grilled 3 skewers with 4 shrimp on each one. I had baked potato and cole slaw. Others in the party had a sampler platter which they loved. For the money it's an experience. There is always a line, don't be discouraged, worth the wait.
