We stopped in on a Monday evening and had three orders. Salmon grilled, ahi tuna Cajun style and rock fish grilled. All three fish were good with the ahi the best! We all shared and it was agreed the ahi was excellent. We also agreed that the home-fries were over cooked and burnt. We should have returned them but we were in a hurry. I should have said something to management but I didn't. When I go back I'll tell them the last time I was here your home-fries were burnt.

Always love to meet friends here for a delicious seafood dinner on the back patio. Cold beer, fresh seafood, relaxed atmosphere.

We stopped in on a road trip up the coast and we were very glad we did. When we walked in the staff, (may have been the owner) greeted us and explained the menu. The food was amazing! The staff were all outstanding. The atmosphere was casual and very interesting. I highly recommend you stop by for dinner!!

Very good tender Calamari steak , you pick 2 sides.
Very good red clam chowder!
Very good mahi mahi fish sandwich!


But....no good on fried combo plate ( shrimp+fish+calamari ), decent sides fries and cole slaw): ugly way to fry calamari rings+ heads, fish and shrimp. Tell the cook : Coating should be thin and light , not so thick and hard.....the $21 combo was a bad choice.

Too pricey.

After a great day at Will Rogers State Beach, it's time to relax and enjoy seafood and there's no better stop than this. It's a beach-front fish shack, large, comfortable, laid-back and offers a terrific menu for adults and kids alike. A perfect way to cap a beach day.
