We had two plates: a grilled fish and grilled scallops. Portions were good size and freshly cooked. We were going to buy some items to bring home. They couldn't tell us where the fish was from & the shrimp was not local - it was...previously frozen from India ?? So much for their website local claim. We did not buy anything.More

We thought the restaurant would serve fresher seafood but our choices were a little disappointing to us.

We went hear because of the great reviews, but we were surprised when we had to stand in line to order and take a number to have our food delivered. For $100.00 meal including wine (which we had to drink out of plastic cups) I’d...prefer to sit down and be waited on and have real glasses and plates. And not have to clean my own table afterwards. Fish was good, but they were out of salad and the grilled veggies were cold. Disappointed ☹️More

I love their fish bowl. It's hard to decide if I like fish or the grilled veggies best. Fish tacos are devine. They have an extensive fish market and once a year we treat ourselves to Maine lobster.

Lets start off by saying while the food is fresh and the prices reasonable the experience is forgettable. The fish and chips were good but bland in flavor, also the tartar sauce was bet on the heavy handed side tasting way to mayonnaise based. The...onion rings were good but there again lacked basic flavor. This would be a good take away location where I could doctor the food up once home.More

This unpretentious place served up great seafood at excellent prices. I had grilled catfish (1/2 pound) with cole slaw and salad, $ 13, and my wife had a shrimp bowl, includes veggies and rice for about the same price---her shrimp were large and plentiful. Service...is fast and efficient---nothing fancy here just excellent food, many seafood choices for those who like fish.More

We came hoping to try some local fresh fish as we come from the prairie provinces in Canada. The halibut was good. They use breading instead of batter and I'm not sure if that affects the moisture content but I would say it seemed a...bit dry. Still really good though. Fries were as hoped for. Onion rings were HUGE but some had the tough outer onion inside so we had to just not eat them. I'd also recommend them putting in more onion per ring to go along with how much breading is used. Cute location to walk around other shops, grab a coffee after, gaze out at the water.More

We love this place. The seafood is so fresh. Prices are average for the area. Beautiful view of the waterway. And best of all, the employees are very nice. We will return!!

This is my favorite restaurant in all of Oxnard. The fish is always fresh, much of it caught daily, and they have the best clam chowder you’ll ever eat. I’ve never found a clam chowder that comes close to the clam chowder at Fisherman’s Catch....Everyone who works here is so pleasant and helpful, and it’s a great place to take the whole family. It’s not fancy, and the prices are very reasonable. If you’re in Oxnard, or anywhere nearby, you do not want to miss eating at Fisherman’s Catch!More

We were in Oxnard to visit the Channel Islands and found this fish store and restaurant. They sell fresh fish but really know how to cook up some great fried or grilled fish. Prices are very reasonable. They have a $10 special ... grilled snapper,...tilapia or Swazi with one side and a soda . A real treat! Perfectly grilled fish. My wife had the fish and chips (choice of cod,snapper,catfish,halibut or sea bass) and it was not over breaded and cooked perfectly. It has seating but you order and pay and they bring your food to you.More
