“Such a deal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2009

I went to MFG tonight with a very picky party of three. Everybody was very happy with their meals. All three different meals were done perfectly. I especially liked my Good Earth Salad with seared ahi for only $9.49. The halibut dinner plate was only $14.95 and the fish was perfect. It was about the most expensive item on the menu.

The portions are substantial and the food extremely fresh. The atmosphere is bare bones and the ambiance is "fast food" but the food is definitely as good as it gets. Fine dining restaurants would charge $35 per plate for what you get at MFG for $10-15.

I'm sure I'll become a regular. One funny quirk is that they serve no coffee -- because they are right next door to the Tea Leaf and Coffee Bean store. I guess there was a non-compete clause in the lease. I don't think they would object at all if you went next door to get your coffee and brought it back.

“generous portions for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2009

A straightforward menu allows you to choose the type of fish, seasoning and sides. The size of the fish serving is twice what you get at more formal restaurants. I love it enough to go about once a week for my dose of salmon. Wish there were more fast food fish places like this to choose from. Friends from out-of-state insist on going there every time they come to town.

“Can't Be Beat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2008

Malibu Fish Grill is my favorite fast fish place too. The salads with fresh grilled fish can't be beat. Try the lemon oregano sauce. Your fish will have just a hint of seasoning but you can still taste the fresh fish. Everything I've tried is good but the selection and preparation of the fish is the main draw. The service is friendly and fast. The place is clean. It's obvious the people care about quality and your health. Parking in front can be an issue but you can park in the back where there are plenty of spaces.

“My favorite fast-food fish place”

Want fish? In a hurry? Not in a hurry? Great food, good size portions and lots of healthy choices. Eat in or take out doesn't matter, the service is good either way.
