I've been to this restaurant many times, and it has never disappointed. Warm, fresh sourdough bread, the freshest of fish, and a good wine list. I had salmon this time, perfectly grilled, with a baked potato and coleslaw. Recently it seems that I so often look at the menu and think, "if they could just remove that extra ingredient, it...

Had the pleasure of enjoying a delicious Sunday Brunch. Great flavorful Bloody Mary's ( a few) 😂😂👍 Fresh crab appetizers and a lovely crab Benedict. Service was efficient, friendly and prompt. Would give it 4 1/2 stars!

We went for brunch and it was absolutely fabulous- try to get a patio table if possible- shaded and cool. We had fried clam strips to share. Crab cakes Benedict and Ahi tuna with sesame crust was cooked to perfection. There are so many varieties and ways to cook your favourite seafood from shellfish to tuna to lobster!!!! Not to... More

I have gone here many times, but this was the first time for lunch and sitting on the outdoor patio. Came with a friend to celebrate her retirement. The food was absolutely delicious! The service always great. Love the sour dough rolls and yams with yummy brown sugar butter. Can't wait to go again!

Frankly, I'm not much of a fish lover, but my husband is - so when he is in the mood for seafood, this is where we go, since there are a number of seafood items here that I enjoy. I've been going here since they opened in 1981, and over the years, I've noticed the decor looking more and more... More

This is our second visit the the Fish Co. We have been here twice on our vacations to Anaheim. We have friends in the area and enjoy going here with them. There is a fresh fish market in the lobby and the cooking area is behind glass. You can watch meals being prepared as you wait to be seated. This... More

Took my customer here for business dinner / the blackened Alaska Halibut is the best I've eaten, great atmosphere and service was excellent also! Seems to be a popular place with the locals/ I see why now! Can pickup a bottle of wine and fresh fish to go at their market.

We got to the Fish Company early and sat in the bar for a quick lunch. We had great service and food plus a couple glasses of wine. They have done a nice job remodeling.

The OFC is an amazing find. First off, the New England clam chowder is the best I've ever tasted. Ever. It is a meal in itself and probably 5 million calories, but it is a taste of clam heaven. All of the fish is fresh from, I think, their own purveyors...at least you occasionally see a Fish Company refrigerated truck... More

Always have to wait but worth it. The fish is always top quality and fresh. Price is reasonable and the service has always been great.
