The food is good but I would say it's great. My husband had the grilled catfish with garlic sauce. He said is was ok but would not get the sauce next time. I ordered the fish and chips which was way too much for one person. It had three very large pieces of fish and the entire plate was filled... More

Food, ambiance and service are all above average. They know how to grill fish without drying or burning. Just right. Waiters are alert to seeing you are happy.

We were on vacation and just happened to find this place. My wife lived her grilled fish plate. I had the fish and chips, it was the best I have had for many years. I will be back an soon as we go back next year. Loved it.

Busy spot with lots of pick-up orders. Sometime the order line can be long but the food is usually served pretty fast. The fried fish has too much breading and can taste dry. The grilled trout, salmon salad and fried zucchini are delicious.

Inexpensive, casual eatery for fish. Indoor and outdoor seating is available although the place does get a bit jammed during lunch hour. They serve fish prepared a number of ways however I enjoy the grilled salmon and swordfish prepared Cajun style.

We have luckily been to this location many times. It has become the quiet understanding when we roll out of the plane at LAX, we head straight here with the suitcases still in the trunk of the car. We are starving, grumpy and demanding. The cooks behind the scenes here are consistently magnificent. During our last visit, after stuffing our... More

I have eaten many fish & shrimp tacos at various restaurants throughout the USA and the battered shrimp tacos at California Fish Grill are the best. They give you several large shrimp on each taco and the price is the most reasonable in the South Bay.

Fresh fish off the grill, yummy drinks! Very fast service line: order everything at cashier and wait for your order at the table. Excellent if in a hurry but still want to enjoy your meal.

Spent almost 15 minutes standing at the front waiting for my order to be taken. For most of that time, there was only one server taking orders, and she was taking phone orders more than serving customers standing in front of her. 15 more minutes to get the food, and then they brought me the wrong order (you might think...
