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

I have been a regular customer for several years. I brought some friends of mine to show off what has always been a favorite. Only to eat my words. I had called in my dinner order due to my friends injured foot post soccer game and the long lines. Be aware that when you arrive you will have to wait... More

PB Fish Shop was recommended to us by some locals & it was exactly what we were after. The fish tacos were amazing & as fresh as it gets. The outdoor patio had a great vibe & bonus: dog friendly! We will be back next time we're in town!

My wife and I went for quick dinner. You walk up and place your order. You first pick your fish and how you want it prepared. Then decide if you a sandwich, tacos, salad or plate. I had the shark plate blackened and it was excellent. My wife had Mahi Mahi fish tacos which were good too. Highly recommend for... More

Love this place but it is so pricey I can't come as often as I like. The tacos are wonderful, fish so fresh, seasoning great and slaw delicious. The patio is dog friendly which is a big plus. Great local micro beer selection. There is a small parking lot which is convenient. Check it out.

I don't like or eat fish or seafood but husband loves a place like this. I was hoping for at least a chicken sandwich but only fish. I took a chance on a Red Snapper wrap since it had pico de gallo, avocado and lettuce. Truly, I never tasted fish in this wrap and it was delicious. Who knew? It... More

Excellent choose for good, fresh seafood at a reasonable price. Several nice draft beers on tap. Order at the counter. Choose your fish and style. Grilled, fried, sandwich style... plus chowders and seafood stew. Always delicious

First off the flour tortillas are the way to go when you order tacos here. They are far superior to the corn in our opinion. We only had fish tacos while here so that is all I can speak for. Secondly, the special taco was by far our favorite. At the time it was an ono taco with the key... More

Stopped in at the fish shop while I was in San Diego. The system is cool. You pick your fish, then the seasoning and then how you want it. Everything is fresh and cooked to order. The fish tacos were terrific. Stop by when your in town. Close to the pier and the beach.

Thank David D
