“Best fish tacos”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

In all honesty, the fact you might have a view of the beach is secondary at this place. These fish tacos are the best of anywhere. This is always my first stop when I'm in town. Therefore, if you're in San Diego on a Tuesday, it's a requirement to be at South Beach. Casual atmosphere great beer selection, and they do have a wide variety of other things on their menu if seafood isn't your thing,

“Great view and OB ambiance”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Overlooking the Ocean Beach Pier, there is hardly a better place to watch the waves, surfers and occasionally spot dolphins. The bar on the second floor has the best viewing seats. The food is decent, especially the fish tacos. If you sit at the bar, service is friendly but slow. They have an excellent local beer selection. Sit at a restaurant table and service can be maddeningly slow to surly. The locale alone keeps the place bustling. Improve the service and it's a contender for top spot in OB. My advice: go for drinks and appetizers.

“OMGoodness-- Fish Taco Heaven”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Stellar fish tacos ( I had the Wahoo--TWICE) Excellent brew picks of the day--SHOCKTOP Ale was my choice on the first visit. * Excellent* The friendly staff keeps this busy place in a state of easy controlled chaos. If you want a seat by a window come early. The fast service and consistently good food even when the joint is jumping makes this a keeper. Don't miss out on this little gem!

“Always dependable”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

I don't know why we don't come here more often. I love the fish tacos. You can have them grilled or deep fried with a variety of fish choices. Great beer selection. Very good service by a friendly wait staff. Upstairs has a great view of the pier. Always great people watching while in OB.
