    The fried fish is to die for. Inexpensive, fresh quality seafood with the most gorgeous view of Malibu beach. Don't tell anyone else about this place. It's a secret gem.

    No matter whether you order a fish taco, the shrimp and fish, or whatever, ask for a big side of their garlic cilantro sauce. Whether used for dipping, pouring, or smothering your food, you'll love it

    Great beach atmosphere! I really wanted to try crab but they were out. I had fish and chips with calm chowder. The fish and chips were bland but the chowder was good and served best in a bread bowl

    Great stop if you are driving the PCH. It does get quite crowded and there is not a lot of parking but the seafood is so fresh and worth the wait. A great little beach across the street.

    Great picnic tables on a warm clear day. Bring your camera and will be glad you did for views of the ocean.

    On the weekends make sure someone gets the table while the other person orders. Fish n chips is always good & safe, also byob or wine, they don't sell liquor but let you bring your own..

    Those fish and chips-wow. You can get them with one, two, or three pieces of fish. Parking and seating go quick, think ahead.

    Try the scallop ceviche and garlic smoked mussels at the salad section. So much better then all the deep fried stuff in my opinion.
  • Ross S.

    Probably not worth the endlessly long lines, but the fish tacos are pretty good. The ice cream sandwiches from Santa Monica's Beachy Cream are delicious.

    Get the fish tacos with extra jalapeños, some fried shrimp and the coleslaw. Don't die pulling out on the PCH when you leave.

    Their potato salad is the bomb. And get sides of garlic cilantro sauce for whatever you order, you'll love it.
  • Alex H.
    Wait can get long around peak lunch hours, so be prepared to wait up to an hour. Food is great though. Fried scallops 👌

    Don't get how this place scores 9.1. It's ok, not amazing.. not really cheap either... seafood fast-food, not much flavour but the oil. Also be sure to park in the car park, road there is very unsafe!

    It's probably advisable to call ahead and make sure they haven't sold out of what you've got a hankering for. I recommend the clams and mussels. (310) 456 3430 or (310) 456 6298
