We were there on a Monday, so we got a table right away. Staff greeted us relatively promptly and apologized for their delay. Waiter was friendly, though he was a bit too aggressive, as in he came on a little strong. With a big menu we asked for advice of what to order and he said that everything on the... More

A local favorite that attracts folks from everywhere! The food is really worth any wait you may have - enjoy the atmosphere, grab a drink at the bar, chat with the locals. We visited recently early on a Friday evening. We hadn't been able to get a reservation but weren't concerned as we just planned to hang out at the... More

Very Cali-long sharing tabletops or cozy booths. You are surrounded by sports of every TV-with everyone cheering or booing for the screen. Great Bloody Mary's- served with bacon, shrimp & asparagus toppers. Everyone loved the lobster guacamole-not your usual west coast fare but good. 5 of us had wonderful mains, lobster Cobb salad, fish tacos, Mediterranean Mahi Mahi(so good), clam... More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to happen on this while in Manhattan Beach. We started with clam chowder which was great. I had trout and she had lobster Mac and cheese. It all was delicious! However our server, Cami, was not attentive at all. No drink refills no nothing. If you're looking for great food go here....just sit... More

A few comments on FishBar: 1. If you are an ELITE on YELP - STFU! You are too cool for this place, don't get it, and clog it up for us locals that enjoy a good place to eat that doesn't have to cost $100-200 for a dinner for two. 2. Yes, it is the same layout (for the most... More

Never even knew about this place, having spent years going to Manhattan Beach. Good vibe and set up. Lots of TVs but not too noisy. Staff helpful and friendly. Food is a good selection. Not going to blow you away but it does the job and is reasonably priced. Recommended.

Went there for lunch with several people and we all had good meals. No views of the ocean, but is a nice and clean place for a casual meal

e had heard a lot of hype about this place. We went early to beat the dinner crowd. Service wasn't bad but wasn't great. It feels really small inside. We had appetizers, some good, others not great. Drinks were average. Then came the long dinner line outside the door. It's worth going onçé but wē won't go again.

The place is nothing to look at from the outside but the food and service were impeccable! We went on a Wednesday when they have crab specials. We got there for happy hour and had great margaritas. Then we had crab queso and tempura asparagus for appetizers. Unbelievably delicious. The bread basket is sourdough with real butter-to die for. Dinner... More
