The Fishery is one of our go-to restaurants in Pacific Beach. Service is always friendly, I love the cool blue decor, and the food is beautifully fresh and nicely presented. The ceviche is especially good.

We arrived on a busy Saturday night during college graduation week, without reservations and a party of 6. Although the restaurant was busy the hostess assured us she'd do what she could to get us seated. Within minutes we were seated. The menu is limited...More
