If you're around Oceanside Harbor this is a great place to have something to eat, and it fits in perfectly with a day at the beach. It has a very casual atmosphere and prices fit the size of the meal.

Food is ok, but overpriced. $12 for a 2 piece fish and chips, but that is California for you. They have added a covered outdoor patio which is nice for hot sunny days..

I had always heard about this place so had to try it. The fish and chips were very tasty, alittle greasy for me but tasty. We also had the clam chowder and that was good. Nice little beachy place and very nice staff.

This place has some the best and freshest fish and chips! Not to mention it is a huge portion. Two people can share one order and be very full. Sit outside to watch the boats come in and sometimes seals following them. We like the...More
