“Fresh, Affordable Seafood in a Casual Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

My cousin raved about how great the seafood is at this restaurant, and eating here was a must during a recent visit to LA. She was spot on! I was impressed at how inexpensive the prices were for fresh, quality seafood. I ordered the charbroiled Swai fillet with Cajun seasoning and a green salad. The fillet was large and flaky. The salad greens were fresh and tasted as if they had just been picked from a garden. I tasted my cousin's salmon fillet with a cream sauce, and it was delicious as well. There is a variety of fish to select from, and you can request how you want the fish prepared: charbroiled or fried. No white glove service here, you have to serve yourself a beverage at the soda fountain. As another reviewer mentioned, parking can be an issue at lunch time because this location is in a very busy strip shopping center.

“Very good food at excellent (amazing value!)prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Not a fancy atmosphere but very good sea food at unbelievably low prices. We went with our adult children who also loved it. The Cajun Ahi tuna was very good. My wife thought her crab salad was delicious and it had a ridiculously large amount of crab. The service was fast.

Not a place for a romantic extended dinner, but the quality and value for hungry sea food fans is amazing.

Good food and selection. Prices are fair and there are a lit of options. Theonly real issue appears to be parking.

“Fresh Fish casual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Very good food. Large selection of fish. Prices very good for the portions served. Ordered the Swordfish from the Charbroiler, got 2 good size fillet's, large portion of rice, plus cole slaw and a roll. Wife ordered the Mahi Mahi, got 2 good size fillet's, sweet potato fries and cole slaw. All for around $25. For what you get it's a very good price.
As other's have said, you go to the counter, place your order, find a place to sit (booth's or table's like in a fast food place), they bring you the order, and you have a very good meal.
