About
Located across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Race Track, our third restaurant has been a San Diego North County favorite since it opened in 1981. This bustling restaurant encourages friendly and convivial dining, with the help of a comfortable oyster bar and cozy cocktail bar and lounge, and front-and-center retail market, widely known by those seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. We also offer a private room suitable for a large party gathering.

Good food, friendly service, easy to find. We visited while staying in Solano Beach, and were delighted to find a great place without returning to San Diego. We will definitely return!

Having heard how good the grilled spiny lobster here is we just had to try it. It certainly didn't disappoint. Friendly casual place with speedy polite service. The only negative were the very over cooked vegetables.

Pretty good fish restaurant is abusively, outrageously, overpriced. And they sneak it on you. They should go to jail.

We went for dinner and to watch a baseball playoff game. The happy hour oysters were $1.50 each and delicious. Also had the house Chardonnay (from Napa) only $6.50 and my dinner was sushi. Very fresh. My favorite dinner of my week in SoCal.
