Fresh, local seafood and friendly, helpful service. As a picky, New Englander who grew up by the ocean, nice to find a place I can rely on.

Great place to get really fresh fish for dinner. Excellent quality and serving quantity. Nice location.

The first time we ate here it seemed just so-so; NOT SO...we went outside our box (and price point) to have two wonderful meals. The Ono Salad is just devine, this is not your Mother's tuna fish - full of flavor and texture with great seasoning. The sashimi grade scallop plate was the best preparation I've ever eaten and at $15.50 I thought it to be a bargain. This is not a fancy place; it is an excellent place to "try" new things - if possible, they will give you a tasting spoon of items to try before you buy. Thr staff go out of their way to insure you have a first rate experience...we took a lot of time to decide and based on their help we had a wonderful meal. Do try some of their prepared salad and spread items - if you haven't tried Ahi Poke you will be in for a real treat.

Great place to get really fresh fish for dinner! Also like the fish sandwiches and clam chowder. Can also sit outside on the patio.

We shop at the fish market twice each week for fresh seafood to grill at home, mainly salmon. Love the ahi tuna salad, we use it as an appitizer on crackers while cooking dinner at home. You will not find fresher fish anywhere in Carlsbad! Thank you Pelly's!
