“authentic Mexican seafood”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

If you have traveled much in Mexico, you know that there's more to Mexican cuisine than tortillas and chimichangas. One of the delights of authentic Mexican food is seafood, and San Carlos Bay does it right. Friendly service, delicious seafood, reasonable prices.

“Hands down best quality seafood in phoenix metro area”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

I am a foodie. I've eaten at the award winning Binkley's and well as over 100 other restaurants in the metro area. The ambience is poor but the quality of seafood is unmatched in Phoenix.

“Great seafood but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

I love a baja style shrimp cocktail and when I want the best one in town I head here. Their prices are a bit much but the quality is worth it. I would come more often if they charged about 25% less which would put them more in line with market.

I have never had a bad item on the menu.

“A Great Mexican Seafood Restaurant”
Reviewed April 3, 2011

This is not your typical cheese-laden, deep fried, everything tastes the same Mexican restaurant. The seafood sparkles, the service is warm and the numerous beers cold. Meat-lovers beware: there are no meat items on the menu but all of entrees are fresh, authentic and wonderful. The Shrimp cocktail (really a serviche) is a must. It comes in 3 sizes- get the large one. You'll finish it.
