Some of he best fish and chips you will have! The seating is somewhat limited, but we were lucky enough to grab an outside table right by the water.

Our family really enjoyed our dinner! We ate outside and enjoyed the view of the harbor. We will definitely go back when we return to Oceanside.

A nice casual place that is similar to a fast food layout. We thought the fried fish and shrimp were excellent! The clam chowder was just ok and I would avoid the beans as a side dish. The restaurant was fairly clean with options for both inside and outside seating. There were as lot of memorabilia and mounted displays inside.... More

Stopped in for lunch...this little place has a very nice atmosphere, with the fish hanging on the walls and the shark mouth display. The service was fast and friendly you can either sit inside or outside for a nice view of the harbor. The food was pretty good but I do like breaded fried fish better this was battered. All... More

Uninspired food and presentation. Fried fish had a heavy batter and was greasy. Very few options outside fried items on the menu. We would not revisit.

It service is quick. It can get a little busy but the line moves fast. Is it the best fish tacos we have ever had, no. We eat out a lot so we have a different perspective. We also live by a Taco Nazo (great fish tacos). The sauce did not stand out and the batter is on the harder... More

I came for the fish tacos, which have gotten good reviews...but I think this place is best known for its fish n chips. I didn't care for the fish tacos, but I must admit I much prefer grilled fish to deep fried fish. I just couldn't get past the fried part, it seemed to overpower the other flavors. I'm sure... More

Awesome location right at the Oceanside harbor with picnic bench options outside next to the water! Always crowded, but delicious fried food. Love the fish and chips and their Cole slaw is also really good. It is sort of pricey, but you get a great view and yummy food!

Thank Melinda P
