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.

Excellent food and excellent service. A little pricey for a casual restaurant, but maybe that is what things cost these days.

We have never had a bad experience here and have gone many, many times over the years. The food is good with many choices and reasonable prices. It is very kid friendly and we have had some of the best service that we have had in the San Diego area. The atmosphere is a bit plain but seems appropriate for what it is. They also have a fresh fish market where you can buy great fish to cook at home. Not the quietest restaurant, but they have different areas, some quieter than others, so ask if that is your priority. Love the calamari.

This was our 2nd time here as my wife insisted (and I agreed) this must be one of our stops while in California and the food & service was as good as when we were here 6 years ago. Large family get together was accommodated with excellent service. With this many people in our party our menu selections were quite varied (from a hamburger to several varieties of fish to King Crab) and we all agreed that the food was excellent. I can personally attest to the New England style clam chowder and the Halibut. The Fish Market is definitely on our list of places to go next time we go to Cali!

Great fresh seafood and a good value compared to the many restaurants in the area. They have an amazing fresh seafood market that is worth stopping by and bringing home some fish to grill.

Whenever I stay at the Winners Circle Resort (next door), I always walk over to The Fish Market a few times that week and get a quart of clam chowder, hot sourdough bread & butter to go. OUTSTANDING! They also have a full bar, an oyster bar, and a terrific menu.
