Ketch Grill & Taps

Outstanding fish & chips with a side of stunning views at Ketch on Shelter Island!

King’s Fish House

Recently tried KFH in Mission Valley for the first time and I was really impressed! Terrific atmosphere, reminiscent of a high end east coast seafood restaurant. My fried combo platter was excellent. The sourdough bread service outstanding. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. The clam chowder was pretty average. It was the consistency I think. Seemed very institutional. Definitely looking forward to returning soon.

Jack in the Box

The $4 Fish Sammich combo at JIB was pretty tasty! Would definitely rather have one of these than a filet o’ fish at Mack Donald’s.

California Fish Grill

Outstanding grilled sea bass, Cajun style at California Fish Grill! One of my new favorite restaurants in El Segundo.


I can always count on Rubio’s for the quintessential fish taco!

Boll Weevil

Best value in Ramona!  Thursday night AYCE fish fry at the Weev!

Boll Weevil

All you can eat fish fry at The Weev is still the best deal in Ramona, every Thursday 5-8pm! We enjoyed their iconic weekly special recently and I have a few observations. You’ve seen me review this dish ad nauseam over the years so I’ll just stick to last night.The fish (fresh battered pollock) seems to be cut into smaller portions. The initial serving is noticeably more conservative in size. Fortunately though, being AYCE, more is right around the corner.

I dearly adore their wooden bowl salads and always get blue cheese dressing. Last night it was obvious the blue cheese had changed and not for the better. It has a noticeably more tangy taste and visually appears somewhat loose and unappealing. I asked the server about it and they have unfortunately changed to a gluten free version. Not sure why, but I’ll be trying a different dressing next time.  

Again, such an amazing value at only $7.99 ($5.99 with coupon). 

Fish District 

Been to this great place a few times and recently tried their fish & chips.  Just outstanding!   Highlight though is definitely the fries.  Their calamari is very good too.  If you’re in the Carmel Mountain Ranch area, this place is worth a visit for sure.  


The Oaks Grille

Pretty decent fish & chips at The OG.  Not my go to dish here, but I enjoy it every once in a while.  Comes with two fillets, but could be better for the $12 they charge.  Maybe a side of slaw or something would be nice. 


Fish District 

This is a relatively new establishment that specializes in fresh and creative seafood stuffs.  They have a really good assortment of fish tacos.  Here’s their grilled Mahi Mahi.  It was outstanding!
