“Fresh Fish in Orange County Strip Mall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We had a great lunch of grilled fish here,seated outside, with great service, and lots of choices on the menu. Fresh fish is the highlight here, and halibut, dover sole and calamari steak were all prepared well, with good side dishes. We were not rushed here, and sat at the table for 2 1/2 hours without being pushed out.

“Fresh WoodChip Smoked Bass and Great Oysters ..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Love their oysters... and you can see how they grill and prepare your fish as you walk in to the restaurant. Always busy and never waiting too long on line. The lady in front is prompt with our seating and the waitress explained all of her menus down to the small details. Calamari was extremely good.. must try.

“Excellent service but interior decor needs some updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Clam chowder is awesome. Scallops were delicious and melted in my mouth. One member of our party had a chicken salad - chicken was too well done - dry and "burnt".

“Great Food Without Fuss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The Fish Comapny is a hidden gem and a local favorite. You can find fancier fish restaurants, but this is one of the best. The fresh fish counter in the front is excellent, too.
