The fish here is great and the portions r huge. I had a large bowl of seafood bisque which took a few minutes to prepare as it's made from scratch but it was worth the wait. The bisque was filled with chunks of lobster. I had sea bass for my entree and could barely finish the huge portion. It also... More

Within walking distance of my hotel and a nice evening! Had oysters that we're special plump and tender with a freshness I haven't had since my days living in New Orleans. Followed up by a salad with blackened steelhead fish that had a lemon-garlic butter sauce. I should have only eaten half, but I ate it all. Comfortable atmosphere to... More

The oysters on the half shell were huge, fresh and delicious! We also went with the steamed mussels with sides of rice and salad. It was way too much for us to finish. The fresh fish also looked scrumptious! This place is also a seafood market so you can prepare it yourself. This place was featured on triple D and... More

I almost don't want to review and let the secret out, this place is great. A small restaurant with a seafood market inside but ordered the Snapper plate and I got a fantastic meal with a fresh salad and perfectly prepared fish. A friend ordered the scallops and insisted I try a slice and they tasted like a fine steak.... More

You choose from a list of about 13 seafood choices, choose from a selection of 7 marinades and then select how you want to have it served... More

Today's standouts included ahi tuna, wahoo, and mahi-mahi. The fish tacos are reasonably priced, the fish is prepared to order, and the restaurant offers many choices... More

Excellent seafood - eat-in or take-out!!! You may call in your order and pick-up at counter; or, if you prefer to eat-in, order at the counter and wait to be seated. Always crowded and a line, but SO worth it!!!! Atmosphere is clean and cheery; customer service excellent!!!!

This is a terrific little spot in the Mission Hills area of San Diego. You choose between a long list of fresh fish choices, then choose your marinade, and finally, you choose if you want your fish in a salad, a plate, a sandwich, or in fish tacos. After you order and pay, they serve you at your table. The... More
