after looking at the restaurants on the harbor we decided on Marion's fish market. It had great seating outside facing the harbor. The food was decent. We got the fish/shrimp ceviche which was layered with some type of cocktail sauce at the bottom, then cabbage, then the ceviche on top..tasted like there was barely any acidity in it. we also...

We enjoyed it here for sure, we were able to sit outside in the shade and listen to music while eating fish tacos and drinking local beer. Not much better I could ask for. I would certainly recommend it here for a quick meal if you are in the area, something casual and good for adults and children of all... More

Walking by hungry, their menu appealed to us. Two of us had the fried fish tacos. They were fine, but the rice was like unseasoned rice-a-roni. Our friend had a lobster salad on a roll, and it came with French fries. He's eaten better salad in Maine, but said it wasn't bad. It's fine, just consider it is fast food... More

My wife and I were anxious for fish tacos when we found Marion's. They were really, really good! Made fresh in the back. You can watch them prepare the food through a plexiglass window. Really wonderful food and great seating by the bay!

Marion's Fish Market in San Diego is in a food/shops/carousel/entertainment area. Seating wasn't too hard once you figured out some were on the bay side of the market. The fried fish was wonderful. It made up for the fries that tasted like raw potatoes. The beer was not that cold but, there was a good IPA.

This is outside seating with ordering at the window. If you are looking for good fish and chips at a modest price even though it's in the middle of "tourist territory," you'll do OK at Marion's. We had four of us and the food was good and the overall price was fair. We didn't need a fancy, expensive restaurant, so... More

First time here and I ordered their special of 2 mahi-mahi tacos with rice & beans. The two fish tacos were ok, nothing fancy at this place but I wish the rice & beans weren't cold. Just find a place to sit and enjoy the view.

I Love how you can order a beer at the counter with your entrees. Great location, you can people watch while you eat some really good fish tacos that do not not sent the wallet. Also try their 3 items in one basket, great sampler!

A fair selection of seafood meals can be ordered at this counter and eaten at tables shared by the other food sellers in this section of Seaport Village. Service, food and pricing were pretty average. The shop itself seemed cluttered and well-worn. With so much else to choose from in the immediate area, this restaurant is not one I would... More

After spending time in San Diego on business, I wanted to try something local. I walked along the marina's and found Marion's. It was a no frills establishment and the menu outside looked good and inexpensive. I order the Bucket Mania and a beer. I received my order and found a table over-looking the water. The food was tasty and... More
