My favorite is the Fried Fish Plate with French Fries. It can be difficult to order food - either waiting in line to order from the counter, or calling in, both can be challenging. Picking up food if you call in your order can be very chaotic. The food is great, the ambiance is not so great - it's like... More

I was pleasantly surprised how good the food was, how inexpensive and the large portions. I will be coming back. My appetizer of fried calamari was good and filling. The fried catfish was delicious although I would use more Cajun or Louisiana seasoning. The fries were thin but well seasoned and the staff was friendly. I can't wait to come... More

I was pleasantly surprised and a bit embarrassed. I live within walking distance of this restaurant but had never visited although I often saw patrons leaving with takeout. Finally, I went and OMG. It was not what I expected and it was more than I expected. The inside is like entering a warehouse with a kitchen inside, you stand in... More

Stopped by on our visit to Torrance and was so glad we did! Everything was very tasty from the wraps, fish n chips, salmon, beans and rice. Fish tacos were initially served cold and they replaced the entire plate for the inconvenience ! Great customer service, very clean environment and overall wonderful experience. I will definitely return if in the... More

I really like Fish Grill. It has great food although its always crowded. But, its crowded because they have good food lol. I like everything I have ever tried on the menu and the service is ok also. the place is fairly clean considering the high amount of traffic during the lunch hours. No complaints, will keep coming back for... More

Great place and excellent food. The fish are fresh and the sweet potato fries is a must try. We were thinking where to grab a bite after a day out and this place is the closest to our hotel.

I'm generally happy with the quality of food from this location. Unfortunately something happened with my Cajun salmon fish tacos today! Not sure if they were out of salmon but one and a half of my two tacos were filled with what looked and tasted like scrapping from the grill. The fish was hard and crunchy....pretty disappointed. Was just after... More
