Our group loved the sashimi and ceviche. It's casual and seat yourself. Awesome. Also, LOADS of vegetarian options!! I had the charred tofu burrito and it was fab. We loved the salsa too. We will revisit before we leave town.

Bear Flag has few location in Orange County. They support local Fishermans which is pretty cool. They are fish market and restaurant at the same time, always fresh local fish. So definitely a place to try. All their location are very cool but my favorite one is Huntington Beach because their patio is GREAT. Go with friends, lover family etc..... More

My son loves sushi, so when we walked in here and saw he could have some tuna sashimi I was thrilled and just hoped it tasted ok. It was delish. We also got the clam soup which was a little bland but ok. My daughter like it. We got the fish tacos, rice and beans and 2 beers. Our bill... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to our family. Cute atmosphere, but limited seating. The ahi poke was really good, but the halibut was very fishy and overcooked. Sushi was wonderful. The Opah was also good. Great service! More casual than we expected.

This is THE BEST place for fresh fish!! The salmon plate with rice and avocado is my ultimate favorite!! The burritos are amazing also, and the chips are addicting. I could eat here twice a week every week!

Bear flag has a wide selection of fish with multiple styles to prepare it. We chose the burrito, which was packed and delicious. Lots of seating inside or outside in the courtyard, with free parking in the nearby lot.

went here on a tip from locals, great call. They offer all fish options in their cooked food from what they are selling in their fish case, very fresh. Probably the best fish tacos and burritos you will find. Place has a fun atmosphere but is not very big so expect to wait or sit outside. prices are good.

Thank Soggyinsnoqualmie

Bear Flag Fish Co. is the seafood wonderland we all long for on idle summer days, a fish market-cum-restaurant where brilliant slabs of tuna glint like rubies and the spindrift of crashing waves hangs in the air. It’s minimalism at its seafaring best — Bear Flag understands that often all a fish needs is a satisfying char and the salty rush of a beach breeze.- LA TimesThe Bear Flag Fish Co. pushes a healthy lifestyle that’s exuded from just about everything in their spot, including the food, the decor and the good looking people coming in and out.-FoodBeastSometimes good food is simply, simple. Its fresh ingredients create an effortless melody, the kind you find stuck in your head when you’re in the shower, or driving to work or when you’re cleaning up around the house. -OC Register
