Description: Bear Flag Fish Co. is the seafood wonderland we all long for on idle summer days, a fish market-cum-restaurant where brilliant slabs of tuna glint like rubies and the spindrift of crashing waves hangs in the air. It’s minimalism at its seafaring best — Bear Flag understands that often all a fish needs is a satisfying char and the salty rush of a beach breeze.- LA TimesThe Bear Flag Fish Co. pushes a healthy lifestyle that’s exuded from just about everything in their spot, including the food, the decor and the good looking people coming in and out.-FoodBeastSometimes good food is simply, simple. Its fresh ingredients create an effortless melody, the kind you find stuck in your head when you’re in the shower, or driving to work or when you’re cleaning up around the house. -OC Register

“reasonable and fresh”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Had the ono sandwich -- good fish, but inadequate roll. The salad, on the other hand, was great. Vaeriety of fresh greens and large piece of mahi. Lunch stand atmosphere and extremely inadequate beer menu knocks off a couple of stars. Prices were reasonable for this area.

“So So”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I don't get the rave reviews. Food was just ok, nothing to rant about. If you eat in the afternoon there is no way to stay out of the Sun. Staff is indifferent at best.

“fish case with grill”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I love the format...we cut up this fish and you can buy it to take home or we will grill it for you. Simple and fresh, lots of veggies--Cali style.

Get the grilled Swordfish and swordfish tacos.

The mussels and clams are awesome too.

“What a Great Treat”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is an upscale fash food restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious. Was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food tasted. I had the fish bowl and my husband had a grouper sandwich. Will definitely eat there again.

“A weekly must!!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

If you like fresh fish tacos, go here ASAP!!! Read some reviews on Bear Flaw, yes, I understand if you have of an idea of a place before you go, then you might be disappointed. If you don't, then you will love this place. Summer time and off season warm days this place can be really busy from about 5:30 to 7:30, but what place isn't that is really good? You can call in and order so it's ready and eat there. They have great fish tacos, plenty of fish to choose from and their ahi pokey is super says the girlfriend. They do have beer and wine now so it's even better! Enjoy!
