This small, basic, hole-in-the-wall, fried seafood restaurant, with an umbrella covered wooden terrace, is strategically located on the west side of Seaport Village. From the terrace, adjacent to the bayside walkway, you can enjoy a broad view of North San Diego Bay, watch people walk by and meet foreign tourists. All these amenities are more valuable than the food. We... More

Food was pretty good. I had the mahi mahi fish tacos. It was hot. The beans were oversalted. Service was blah. I greeted the cashier rather than the other way around. Typical quick service restaurant, but could have used a smile.

Tasty seafood at decent prices. Love the crunchy batter on fried seafood. Quick service and beachside outdoor casual dining.

I had a bucket mania with crab cake, calamari & fish taco on a basket with a 32 oz. beer for $22 total. I chose Marion's Fish Market not for the food but for the location! The patio seating is beautiful and has the feels of a restaurant in Mexico I visited in the past. I stayed for 2 hours... More

I do have a lunch and a dinner in this dining place, which is located in the dining area of Seaport Village. The main selling point of this dining place is seafood, and there are quite a number of choices, including soup, seafood bucket, salad, etc. It also sells alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage. Credit card is accepted for payment. Majority... More

Was here for a late night dinner. The staff was really tired and not that friendly(not their fault)...food is average.

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!
