We had lunch here for the 1st time and it was great. I had a fish sandwich (Tuna) and it was delicious! For $9 it came with a side and plenty for lunch!

Although they have other seafood we had the mahi and shrimp tacos which came with rice and slaw for only around $6 each. The clam chowder soup was also very good.....cheap eats!

We were staying in Carlsbad and a friend recommended Pelly's. What a find! We had dinner here two sites in a row, the Calimari Sandwich is to die for, intact, the whole menu is fantastic. Get your food to go and then go sit on the beach to take in the ultimate dining experience.

We had the two-taco fish plates and they were excellent. Our taco dishes came with coleslaw, rice and chips. There was plenty of fish in each taco and the plate was more than adequate for dinner. This is not a fast food place and it does take some time to get your meals as they are all cooked to order. You can eat inside or at the patio tables. You place your order at the counter, pay, give them your name and when it's ready they deliver it to your table. It's not fancy dining by any means, but the food is good, well prepared and the staff are friendly and courteous. Pelly's has long been a favorite of locals as well as tourists and their reputation for good seafood at reasonable prices is well deserved.

This is a fish market tucked into a shopping center. So, why do so many people go there? Because you will get really tasty fresh fish! There are not a lot of choices for sides and such, and seating is limited inside and out. But that doesn't matter, as it's all about the fish.
