“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We were in Long Beach the week of May 5-9, 2014. We have a friend from home who had recently moved there and we all went out to dinner. On previous trips we had wanted to eat at the Pickled Fish, but were a bit leery because of the reviews. This time when we checked we saw that the reviews were better, so we decided to try it. What a pleasant surprise! They were real busy, but they cleared space on a long table and made room for us. The waitress was right there with menus and took our drink orders. The long table had another group at the other end and so we asked what they were having. They said the fish and chips was good so that's what we ordered. Service was fast considering how busy they were. After we were served, our waitress checked back with us a couple of times for more drinks or if we needed anything. Everything was cooked just right. The fish was very good. Then came time for desert, we all had something different. I had a strawberry cheesecake, which was excellent - maybe the best I ever had. My wife and our friend both said their deserts were very good also. Prices are not out of line and are about normal for the coast. The view is fantastic. They have a room which they open later in the evening for live music. The only downside that I could see was that it was quite noisy. We will definitely go back.

“Pizza”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Never get pizza from the Pickled Fish. Disgusting! We got a coupon for pizza. Was very hungry when we got to Pickled Fish. Ordered pizza and when we got it was burnt to a crisp, soggy, flat, ugly little pizza. When I told the waiter, he just apologized and charged us anyway. I was so disappointed! I have never had a problem with there food before. :(

“Hugely Improved”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Since my first review of this restaurant, I've visited a few more times & each time it has been a little better. The view certainly can't be beat. Very Happy to say that our last visit on an early Saturday evening was Excellent! Staff was fantastic (even with a full crowd) & the food was wonderful from quality, cooked to perfection with a very nice presentation. Calimari was melt in your mouth perfection! The last thing that they need to do is get real martini glasses (rather than using champagne glasses) & they will earn the fifth star rating. Not a real complaint, since the bartender make a great martini, just an observation. Congratulations on the Huge Improvement!

“best pizza ever”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

this is a really great spot. excellent bartenders, fantastic view, nice prices on their small plates menu using local ingredients. if you like a thin crust crispy crust pizza with imaginative toppings you'll love theirs... we tried the fennel sausage pizza and it really might have been the best I've ever had. even cooler, this place is connected to one of the best Inns on the coast.
