“Awesome fish & chips”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

this little gem's food was AMAZING! Had the fish & chip with local amber beer, while girlfriend and aunt had the gralic dungeness crab (AMAZING). Must try this place when ever in Half Moon Bay. Side note: bring cash or use the ATM in the back, they don't accept CC

“It was wonderful...couldn't even finish it all!”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

We had the big combination fish fry, I can't remember the name. It comes with clam chowder (the best) or salad and your choice of rice or potatoes. We ordered an extra bowl of chowder and split the rest. The prawns, scallops & squid were out of this world.
Of course the sourdough was fantastic. Unfortunately we were 1 day before the new crab season catch was delivered, but can't complain about anything. Very casual and comfortable, I'll bet the view would be great during the day, but we were there in the evening. I'll go there again given the chance.

“Great Lunch, but get there early!”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

Finally tried Barbara's and was not disapointed at all. Food portions were good, fresh, and very tasty! Did thing though, prices were a bit on the high side. Make sure you get there early, for they get busy quick and stay busy. Great lunch stop for sure!

“Best fish and chips”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

What a gem!! I had fish and chips, since they're "best fish and chips around" according to everyone who eats there and they definitely lived up to that! My sister had the clam chowder in a sourdough bowl and it was very good. The clam pieces were diced very small and we were told it was made without milk so the base is not as thick, so not soo heavy. We will definitely be going back!
