Description: Located across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Race Track, our third restaurant has been a San Diego North County favorite since it opened in 1981. This bustling restaurant encourages friendly and convivial dining, with the help of a comfortable oyster bar and cozy cocktail bar and lounge, and front-and-center retail market, widely known by those seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. We also offer a private room suitable for a large party gathering.

“Seafood delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

A quintessential CA "seafood by the seashore" landmark, but the execution and freshness were quite well done. Loved, two of the Dungenous Crab dishes, oysters and the craft brews to wash things down.

“Great seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The Fish Market serves great seafood. We were there for lunch and enjoyed a shrimp and crab Louie and Sauteed Prawns. Both were excellent. The dinner rolls were fresh and warm. A nice restaurant near the ocean and across from Del Mar Race track

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Some distance from Highway One, but worth it.
Great atmosphere, especially in the conservatory at the side.
Great range of fresh fish, served in various ways.
Good service and good range of draught beers.
We went twice during a four-day stay.
