Coming from the east coast of Florida I thought I had seem extensive fish menus . They don't compare to the offerings at the Fish Market . We shared a very fresh scallop ceviche with crisp corn chips . Just enough finely chopped peppers, onions,...More

I've been coming to this branch of the Fish Market for years--not because I thought it was particularly good, but because it was reliable and never bad. Until now! First, the bread was dry and tasteless. The "smoked fish trio" topped with "olive tapenade" was...More

Freeway close and the sourdough bread is served fresh and warm with butter for starters. Huge seafood menu and everything on it is pretty good. Great area close to the race track and beautiful areas of Del Mar and Ranho Santa Fe.

This place is always busy and the parking is tight, but it's worth a visit. I love the fish tacos you can get at lunch. At dinner I like the fried seafood combo when scallops are available. Perfectly fried cod-shrimp-scallops, not greasy and just the...More

This place is a little noisy so not recommended for a quiet dinner, but the food was great - many options to choose from. And the service was great too.

Handcrafted cocktail made with care and accuracy to produce a fine quality cocktail! Oysters to start were different than what we are use but not a bad difference! King Crab was very good, and at $45.00 for a pound dinner we felt a very good...More

Located across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Race Track, our third restaurant has been a San Diego North County favorite since it opened in 1981. This bustling restaurant encourages friendly and convivial dining, with the help of a comfortable oyster bar and cozy cocktail bar and lounge, and front-and-center retail market, widely known by those seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. We also offer a private room suitable for a large party gathering.
