Food portions ( fish ) were small and VERY EXPENSIVE.. A flounder fiqured out to about $ 21 per lb for the small portion delivered on my plate with a few small vegetables and a dab of mashed garlic potatoes. Noisy and crowded, waitress very busy. Only other lower priced options were pasta dishes around $ 18. Everything else ala carte. Very expensive drinks.A tourist place..

So much good fresh fish with a great selection.
Love the mesquite grilled flavor. Sea Bass, Salmon, Wahoo Mahi, Crab, Shrimp Scallops. etc a huge selection.
My wife loved their steamer clams.
Bacon wrapped shrimp and scallop rumaki are outstanding.
The strawberries and steamed vegetables are simple and healthy. They also have Cheese Potatoes and Pilaf
We like this restaurant so much we ate here 4 nights out of a week.
A good wine list too.

Hot sour dough rolls just happened to come out of the oven as we sat down. The array of fresh fish in the lobby was mostly wild caught but marked as to proveance. This restaurant is popular with seniors and families. The fresh fish is portioned to satisfy and the price is right. The feel here is uncomplicated, kind of fifties, before fast food - but the service is great. This place is a great restaurant for its class and should be the pride of Carlsbad. I find it hard to find a fish place that actually does more than use the deep fryer. You can't smell a fryer here. The best value in town.

Had dinner here after reading the reviews that were on tripadvisor. The food was very good I had the lobster and it was very tasty. They grill over wood and it makes a big difference in the taste. The clam chowder is crazy good.
