Outstanding fish and chips. Be prepared to share. Each order is 4 large servings. The fries were okay. Nice setting at the Dana Point Harbor.

Group was a bit hungry before our whale watching venture, so we ordered fish n chips at Jon's Fish Market, family style. Fish was fresh, ample portions and very flavorful. Sides of cole slaw and chips were plentiful. Good meal at a fair price.

We love Dana Point Harbor and Marina and try to visit every month or so. We hadn't been to Jon's recently and since it was a beautiful warm beach day we decided on fish over a deli sandwich. We ordered the four piece fish and chips to share. The fish was golden brown and seemed made to order. It was... More

Located at the Dana Point Harbor just two miles west of I-5 via Pacific Coast Highway and Dana Point Harbor Drive, Jon’s Fish Market is the “place” where the tourists eat fish and chips and the locals buy high-quality fresh and smoked fish that is the best available in the area, but a bit pricey. This small unadorned hole-in-the-wall combo... More

I had heard great things about Jon's. I was staying at The Dana Point Marina Inn for a week and thought I would give it a try. The food was good, simple and overpriced for fish and chips which I consider about a simple of dish as is possible to prepare. There certainly was nothing wrong with the food, but... More

The food is ok, but quick and they have outside seating. They don't serve wine, but there is a deli next door which sales beer and wine. We got a delicious California wine to have with our fish dinner.

We have been going to Jon's for 20 years or more and have never been disappointed in their fish & chips. You can even sit outside with your dogs.

Had delicious sea bass and fish and chips after returning from our Whale and Dolphin safari. Fairly quick service and the fish was fresh and yummy. Very generous portions, too many fries to eat...
