Description: Located across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Race Track, our third restaurant has been a San Diego North County favorite since it opened in 1981. This bustling restaurant encourages friendly and convivial dining, with the help of a comfortable oyster bar and cozy cocktail bar and lounge, and front-and-center retail market, widely known by those seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. We also offer a private room suitable for a large party gathering.

Cafeteria feel. Move 'em in and move 'em out. For the prices, the fare, presentation, and cocktails were average at best. A convenient location for before or after the races at the track. Prompt service. Also a place to buy fresh fish to grill at home.

the food was all over cooked and had no eye appeal. The market up front was very strong smelling, so if that is a issure ask for seat in the back.The plus you could walk as it's right next door.

I haven't been to a Fish Market restaurant in a few years, but I am never disappointed. This was walking distance from the Hilton Del Mar and we are happy we had dinner here. Foremost, the value is the best in the area. We had great quality fresh seafood for probably half the price of some nicer restaurants close to the beach.

The service was exceptional, and very accommodating, especially since we had a baby. If you are looking for a solid seafood restaurant with a casual atmosphere, do not look any further.

If you found this review helpful, please mark it as such. Thanks!

We always enjoy the Fish Market Restaurants and the sister restaurant in Phoenix, The Blue Water Grill.

Great selection of seafood dishes. Everything our party ate was terrific! The food is very fresh and delicious. The service was also very good. They tend to get a large crowd, especially on weekends.
