market broiler belies the axiom that one should not order fish at a steak house or steak at a fish house. i am not a fish lover, but, my wife is. so, we go to market broiler on occasion. i have yet to have a bad steak at market broiler -- order theirs without fear! it's good!

Went there with my family. We all ordered different food to have variety and only one person truly enjoyed their food with no complaints. Service was very slow and the waitress was being rude. Only thing that was good were the scallops. Even the water tasted like tap water.

My husband and I love their seafood. It is always fresh and tasty. I especially love their salmon and sourdough bread. Service is always good as well, and often the manager stops by to make sure we are enjoying ourselves.

If you love good fresh fish expertly prepared this restaurant will be your first choice in Riverside! The Mahi is delicious . Fish and chips is flakey and lightly battered. Served with fresh baked hot bread and butter. The servers are friendly and professional.

Place is great for meat and seafood lovers. Starter bread is delicious, good daily specials. This is a place my family likes to go to celebrate birthdays and special occasions.

Always have a great meal here. We drive from Temecula to dine here and are rarely disappointed. Being in the restaurant business ourselves we are more picky about service and presentation. But this place always exceeds our expectations. We were promptly seated. Our bar drinks arrived correctly and quickly. The appetizer came shortly - displayed appetizingly with just the right...

This was our fourth time for lunch, the restaurant is full, there are too few waitstaff, we are there for 45 min before service, and have to ask for bread? Everyone seemed to be happy with their meals, but I am picky. This is a seafood restaurant, I asked for my salmon to be undercooked...it was overcooked and dry. The... More

A bit pricey, but the best food and service by far. Sweet and spicy calamari is the best appetizer along with the endless bread and butter and would have to say that the King Crab is the best around by far, you could say definitely KING crab

Good food - not great. Good service - not great. At dinner time it is so loud in there you cannot have a conversation around the table. Either go early before the rush or go somewhere else if you want to talk to the people you are going to dinner with. Due to something with the restaurant acoustics it is... More

Market Broiler rose from the tradition of California seafood landmarks dating back to the 1950's. It's a casual, comfortable, moderately-priced, full-service, restaurant where fresh fish and seafood are prepared over mesquite charcoal flames.Key to its presentation is the fresh fish market, where all fish being served is on display. In addition to 18 fresh fish offered daily, entrees of fresh chicken or aged beef as well as salads and pasta are offered.The food is flavorful and portions are generous. The homestyle theme is borne out by the fact that the chowders, sauces, and dressings are made from scratch in each restaurant. Our popular sourdough bread is served warm at your table as a part of the meal.
