The freshest We visited from Iowa and found this restaurant using trip advisor. Sat in the patio area in an awesome atmosphere. Lines moved quickly and dinner was just perfect. Highly recommend a visit.

This place is literally inside a fish market - you stand in line and order at the counter. Don't expect a steak, a waiter fawning over you, a romantic décor, or fancy china table service. But if you want generous portions of simply-prepared fresh fish at a fair price, this is the place for you. We had a delightful weekday... More

Everything is made fresh to order so there may be a line at times, but it's truly worth the wait. It's not a big place & you stand in line to place your order. Best tuna poke & fish tacos ever! They also sell fresh seafood to cook at home. This is now one of my favorites in San Diego!

I'm not sure it is worth it - good food or not. I've stopped in here at least 3 or 4 times and always walked away, not willing to stand in the LONG lines. Well, today, I decided to go the distance and see if it was really "all that". So I stood in line. And stood, and stood. I... More

My friends had Halibut and 3 different tacos. Plus we tried the Salmon Poke(They were out of Ahi Poke) and the... More

The line was out the door, but it actually moved rather quickly. Typically, I do not like to order at a counter, but this was an experience. Limited tables, but a cozy patio with a heater for chilly evenings. Calamari was good and the shrimp taco was amazing! Pleasantly surprised with the amount of shrimp on the taco, great flavor...

I love this place for lunch, The fish is so fresh. The fish tacos are great. I also like the clam chowder. The place is really crowded at lunch and the parking is not great. But the food is worth the wait.

I will verify the other good reviews. Lunch was delicious and very reasonably priced. The line to order can be long, but the kitchen is very efficient and the tables turnover quickly. On my list for a repeat visit while in town.

I went here with my husband and brother and we each got something different and tried each others. The shrimp tacos came 3 to an order and were lightly fried, cabbage topping with a sour cream sauce. The fish tacos came the same except with fish. The fish and chips were 3 strips of a batter fried cod and waffle... More
