If you're down on Mission Bay roaming the strip, Fat Fish will satisfy! Well done, from ambience to service to great, great food. I'll keep it short and post an appetizer and 2 entrees. (if you can figure out what they are and order them, you'll be hooked! Very enjoyable visit, nothing we'd change!

The ambiance at night was actually quite nice. Inside and outside eating. Service was really quick, but the food did not impress. My husband and I like the salsa with the chips, but found our main entrees to be just average. I had the potato crusted sea bass and the whole entrée had almost no flavor.

We had happy hour margaritas and snacks one day and liked it, so went back another day for dinner. There were 8 of us, but still received great service and excellent food. We made a reservation, so didn't have to wait, table was ready when we arrived. Will definitely go back again.

The guacamole was amazing! Fish tacos awesome! Huge portions. We all could not finish. Service was fast, friendly. Outside patio had fireplaces/firepit. Live music was nice.

Ate here twice during our week's vacation. Try the Blood Orange Margaritas! And the nutted brie. Kids menu was good also.
