The lines were quite long and parking surely was difficult. That's how popular this place was. I would happily go back if I was in Malibu again, especially if going to the beach. Tried the Ahi burger and it was quite overcooked, almost burnt on one side. My wife had the wahoo burger and it was excellent. Fries were real potatoes and quite good.

Visiting Pepperdine University, we asked the Admissions tour guide for a restaurant recommendation - Thankfully, they perceived us well as a casual family, and recommended Malibu Seafood. The place doesn't look like much, but then again it overlooks the ocean with some of the best views along PCH. You order your food (mostly seafood) in the shack/market, and then pick a picnic table overlooking the water. This is nothing fancy, but for really good and fresh seafood, a beautiful view, and decent prices, this is the must-go place in Malibu!

Hungry while heading north from LA, followed Tripadvisor and found Malibu Seafood. Grabbed a ceviche and fish taco, both exceeded expectations. and were both healthier & fresher than anything else you'd find at fast-food prices. Most of the other people I saw eating were having fish & chips (which looked great) but I was very happy with my choices. Will absolutely come back. Seating is ONLY outdoor, (covered) but the view of the ocean is spectacular and the weather was perfect.

After a long flight and before a long drive up the PCH, stopped here for a light lunch. Enjoyed a cup of chowder and a fish taco while watching the waves crash across the street. Pretty nice way to spend an hour in Malibu.

We had found this place on tripadvisor and so glad we did. It is nothing special in that you order your food inside then go outside to the benches and wait for your buzzer to go off then collect your food from the window. But because it is a fresh fish market, the food was excellent - I had shrimp and have to say they were the best shrimp I have ever had. It was nice to sit outside and eat looking out to the Pacific Ocean.
