What could be wrong with an outdoor restaurant with a view of the Pacific that serves fresh seafood...NOTHING. Oh, and the food is excellent also. From the fish and chips to the the tacos (more like burritos) to the hand crafted beer, this place is...More

I drive by this fish shop every Saturday after my son's dance class and I've always wanted to check this place out, so one day we stopped on by. The fish at this shop is so fresh and the fish and chips are awesome. Not...More
