We love the fresh fish selections and the fact that they sell fish to take home. Love the crab salad. Clam chowder is excellent as well.

You don't go here for a hamburger. They serve seafood! We went there a couple of times for Mother's Day A nice way to treat Mom if she likes seafood. Worse case scenario, doesn't everyone like Fish and Chips?

If you're looking for a pleasant, reasonably priced dinner with a nice ambiance, you'll enjoy the Fish House Vera Cruz in San Marcos. It's a popular, local restaurant. We enjoyed the sea bass selection and their desserts.
