I visited this place based on the reviews of many travellers. I was quite disappointed. The place is on the highway (on the wrong side...it means not on the Ocean Side). After almost 1 hr of queue i had crab sandwiches and clam-chowder. The sandwiches were ok (tasty but nothing special) but the chowders almost tasteless. Nice atmosphere but nothing... More

I've lived in Malibu for 18 years and this is the best place in Los Angeles for hot, fresh seafood, fish & chips, lobster, you name it. Highly recommend you visit if you're in Malibu. A local tip and tricks, call ahead instead of waiting in the long lines during the summer, better yet call while in parking lot if... More

Having lived in Malibu all of my life, it is amazing to see how crowded and popular Malibu Seafood is now. Whether you eat there or pick up fish for later you really can't go wrong. This is a true slice of the real Malibu!

This is a casual place that does a very good job with fresh seafood. You can takeaway or eat there outside at one of the tables provided.

We were exited to try the lobster, but they were all sold out. A very busy spot, but the line goes by quickly. We had the fish and chips and the shrimp, scallops and fries. Very tasty and we loved the covered eating area overlooking the Pacific Ocean

I had steamed clam in a tasty lite broth. My partner had the red snapper and loved the fat potato fries. The teenager had the fried squid. All was delicious! This is a fine casual dining fish shack-just what you expect! It was fun going to the beach afterwards!

still the best fish and chips, try the 3 piece and share with your wife. a line even on slow days, but worth it, and you can sit and get the ocean spray in your face. a favorite for years on PCH

My friend and I stopped here after hiking and scrambling at Escondido Falls, and though there was a line out the door, the experience was exceptional. Fresh, delicious crab and shrimp cocktail with really flavorful cocktail sauce didn't disappoint. Just be careful to park on the northbound side of the street of possible-- it took us forever to cross PCH... More
