“Good seafood dive with huge portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

Ordered the seafood plate and for $16.95, great value with huge piece of fish, calamari rings, shrimp, and scallops. Came with plank cut fries that were okay and a little coleslaw would have been nice but the fish was all very good. You can order a side of coleslaw but just wanted a little bit. No restaurant seating but they do have an enclosed patio that was warm enough for an evening that was high 50s outside. Great views of the ocean and cute colored lights made it feel festive for picnic table type seating. They also have a fresh fish market and had picked up fish last night to cook for dinner. Excellent and they also offer really good potato salad and coleslaw on the side. They threw in a small lemon with the fresh fish which I thought was a very nice touch! They close at 7 so good for an early dinner after a day at the beach.

“Best seafood ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

I stopped off here with a friend, before driving to the airport to head home- and what a great idea it was!

The food was SO good and the wait wasn't long... pop in your order, grab a seat and look out onto the ocean whilst waiting for your buzzer to tell you your food is ready to collect!

Lovely service, tasty food and great experience! Definitely would recommend!

“Great seafood in a tiny place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We ate here because it was close to the RV Park and got lucky!
Great fish, very fresh. Had fish and chips the first night, fresh salmon and snapper the next night.
Parking is tight, seating is outside on benches, some covered, some not.
You can bring your own tablecloth and wine, I was told by other customers. We sat family style, sharing a table and met a friendly couple who we had lots in common with.
Would try some of the steamed seafood next time.

“The usual fried fare but wide selection of fresh fish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Chicken tenders and french fries were OK. Giant fish sticks in light batter were excellent. The fresh fish counter had an extensive choice of many varieties of fresh fish. A bit pricey on that, but, LA. View of the beach is excellent. you might see a Ferrari, Maserati, Lambi, or one of those regular vehicles in the parking lot.

“Great spot for the food and the view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We'd never been here until last weekend because we usually see long lines; it's worth it and the line moves pretty fast. Good system: walk up to the counter with menu in hand, order, pay, get your drinks and find a table outside (some of the tables are in a covered-roof area, some out in the elements and sunshine). We shared a mixed fried seafood platter for lunch and everything was delicious! We sat at a picnic table with umbrella overlooking the PCH and the Ocean. Can't beat the setting, very informal, so you can go in shorts and a t-shirt and sandals/flip-flops. Familes with young ones, couples, you name it. They also sell an impressive selection of freshly-caught fish from their display case to cook at home. Don't be put off by the lines. They move and the prize at the end is well worth it. Can't wait to return with friends next time.
