I really like their menu/set up. Pretty smart and super tasty fish and shrimp tacos. Seaweed salad was bomb too! Slightly pricey was my first thought, but it was such good quality, taste and filling I was was not disappointed in the end. Nice set up too!

Pacific Beach Fish Shop had really good fish tacos. This restaurant was in our top 3 favorites. The TKO, their specialty, was good but not amazing. I really liked the mango salsa, but I didn't like that the corn tortilla was crispy, and the fish seemed a little dry. I also got a salmon taco on a flour tortilla that... More

Great fish tacos. Looking forward to trying the oysters. Ahi poke bowl was delicious too. They allow dogs too.

Excellent fish tacos! I ordered 2 swordfish tacos with all the makings and avacado which is a dollar extra but so worth it! The fish is fresh and grilled to perfection. Staff is excellent and super nice. It can get a bit crowded inside but there is outdoor seating which is nice. There are heating lamps to keep you comfortable... More

We visited this place in December, 2016. We went on a Thursday which happened to be $1 oyster night. I had to wait in line for about 25 min to order--the place was packed. Thankfully my husband found a table right away and sat while I waited. After ordering, our food arrived at our table in about 10 min. I... More

As noted it can take a while to order as there is only one line. I had swordfish with house spices, prepared nicely (not dry as some swordfish can be). There were also specials such as multi-fish stir fry, and dollar oysters. My son and girlfriend who live in San Diego come here frequently and enjoyed the various dishes they've... More

Good concept but expensive for what you get. Like the selection of fish taco combos but three of our four were not served hot.

Had the best fish tacos here. It was oyster night so we indulged in the best tasting variety of oysters. We sat outside and loved the atmosphere. The bartender was nice to talk to and very friendly.

The Fish Shop has a very informal atmosphere. You order at the counter, try to find a table, and they bring the plates to the table. There is no corkage fee for wine, and they have an excellent selection of beers. They also have a wonderful variety of fish, and even say where they come from. They have a great... More
