“Great casual fish house”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This restaurant is really great. We have been there multiple times and have enjoyed the meals each time. They have a limited selection of fish - but that means what they have is really fresh. I love the fish tacos. The oysters are great and they have a great happy hours special for the oysters. And don't forget to try the deserts, they are home made by the owner.

Fish, fish, fish and more fish!! This place was so good we went back the next day! The service was fast, and very well managed. The fish was so fresh & delicious. The selection of alcohol was nice. Good salads and overall and great place to eat with friends or family.

“Fish & Chips - Yum!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I've had take out from here twice during two different trips to Encinitas. All I've ever had were the Fish & Chips and a salad (forget the name) with arugula. I can't vouch for the other food options or the sit down service / atmosphere, but I can say that the Fish & Chips were yummy! And the salad was fresh and delicious.

“Fresh Fish”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This place is very casual and low key. Parking at night is a bit sticky but well worth the effort. Fish is fresh and tasty with plenty of sides. It has a nice little outdoor patio.

“Hoppin' and happening”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This is a very lively restaurant with a great happy hour, great appetizers and good food. It is a local hangout with a lots of repeat customers because it's good. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic spot, this isn't it. If you've a hankering for a rollicking, lively crowd and some great eats, try Fish 101, and get a seat on the back patio. On a sunny afternoon... the best!
