We read about this place in the guide book and it was definitely worth the visit. Extremely fresh fish cooked to perfection with lovely accompaniments. Would love to have gone back again but we didn't have time!

I stumbled upon the Reel Inn by accident, and I'm sure glad I did! The view is amazing, the vibe is laid-back, and the food is delicious - and fresh! I had the grilled tilapia, and it was perfectly cooked. My whole lunch, soda included, was $16, which is very reasonable for Malibu. I'll definitely come here again.

The fish tacos were pretty darn good. The Tabanero sauce on the table was excellent!! You order and pick up food similar to fast food and the seating is all long benches like a school cafeteria. If I return to Malibu, I would go back to The Reel Inn.

Super casual, super delicious! You can't go wrong, tons of choices and a great view. The prices are very reasonable! I had a lobster tail and shrimp combo plate, plus an app and drink for $35.00. Serious seafood feast!!!

Great 'fish shack' experience but with really good fish and seafood. Order at the counter sit outside have a beer... Just easy. Not cheap. We spent about $60 in two and we don't eat large quantities ... i could have had one more round... Probably closer to $40 person.
