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

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.
