“Best Fish Tacos Ever”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We love stopping by here for a margarita and fish tacos. They are the best fish tacos ever, you just have to try them and see if you have had any better ones. The staff is great, and it is located by 92 and Main Street.

“Great place and -- Love those grilled scallops”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Tonight my husband and another couple ate at the Flying Fish Grill, and everything about it was terrific -- the food, the service, the atmosphere, and the value vs. similar restaurants in the area. All our dishes were excellent, but the grilled scallops that two of us had were really terrific!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

This is no fine dining restaurant, but you won't be disappointed by the food. All of the fish tacos we tried were amazing. Our server was so nice and personable. Definitely recommend.

“Welcome fish lovers”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

The Flying Fish Grill is situated near the port in Half Moon Bay. If fresh fish are available, they will have it. Our fish were well prepared and tasty. The highlight is to order the Crabby Cheesy Garlic Bread as an appetizer. You might think about ordering a couple and just a small fish. There are some delights on the menu as well that not every restaurant will offer. Recommended to us by a local as the best fish in town, although Pasta Moon, Mezza Luna, and Sam's Chowder House are also good alternatives.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We stumbled across this place and were so impressed with the food and service. I had fresh Alaskan halibut - it was hands down the best halibut I have ever tasted. The vegetables were perfect - not overly garlicky as I often experience with veggies accompanying fish. My husband had the fish taco and clam chowder. The fish taco was the best fish taco I have ever had, and the clam chowder was very good. We will definitely visit the Flying Fish Grill again.
