Close by the Hotel and on the beach so thought we would give it a try. Disappointed. Expensive for what you get and it's paper plates and plastic cutlery. Beer was $9. They over cooked the steak AND the shrimp. Had to carry it back to the counter and get a replacement dinner. Won't waste my money here again.

Ate here twice and was not disappointed! Loads of options for meals and an excellent selection of fresh fish for purchase. Of note, the shrimp fajitas were exceptional. Easy to find, reasonably priced and free parking!

Many choices at a reasonable price. All kinds of fish and health side dishes make for a nice meal. A short walk from the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach

My family and I have been going to this restaurant for about 40 years. I no longer live in the area but we go here almost every time I visit, and my father who does still live near here eats here a couple times a month. You choose your fish at the market counter, where you can see the freshness... More

Ate here w my 12 y/o son. He loves lobster. He was pleased. I wasn't. But to be fair I'd just drove over 400 miles and was tires and fussy and the moon was too bright so my opinion would be a total fuss feast. My son was happy so I'd spend $44/lb on lobster tails again and again for... More

We decided to try Captain Kidds because of the reviews on TA.... We are disappointed! I had the famous fish tacos and they were very dry. My better half tried the opah fish and stayed he had had much better. Not sure we would return to the restaurant; however, would go back to the market. The service was excellent.

I went here after a recommendation from a friend who resided in the area. Let me preface this by saying I am from Hawaii and still reside there so I know my seafood.....This place is great...you pick out your seafood( from a market-style setting), your sides and how you would like it prepared. If you are undecided or not familiar... More

I found this place by accident while on bike ride and have been a regular ever since. It's an 1.5 hour bike ride along ocean and well worth a trip anytime, any distance.

The fish was fresh and tasty and the Lobster was worth the splurge. My only negative is wine in plastic glasses is just not very enjoyable.

Great fish market with fresh fish. Pick out and they will cook for you. Small bar with drinks. Good atmosphere. Great location near the marina and the water at Redondo Beach.
