Fish Market Review

Fresh mesquite-grilled, steamed, and skewered fish and shellfish are the specialty at this informal restaurant. There's also an excellent shellfish bar that serves crab cocktails and steamed clams. The Monday through Thursday happy hour means specials on snacks like oysters and smoked trout quesadillas, as well as drink deals. The view is stunning: enormous plate-glass windows look directly out onto the harbor. A more formal restaurant upstairs, Top of the Market, is expensive but worth the splurge, and is the place to find such rarities as Pacific swordfish with pumpkin risotto and ricotta salata.

    Everytime in SanDiego

    My wife and I eat at the Fish House each time we are back in SanDiego..As former residents of NorthCounty, it brings back so many pleasant memories. The Cioppino is terrific and the view cannot be beaten. JB

    A let down.

    The crab cakes were tasty, but held lots of filling. So, not a good value. Wine by the glass is delivered in small glasses, so it too, it not a good value. The portions were small, but the salad was good. Our server was very attentive. The place was clean, but based upon what a basic lunch costs (about $100 with tip), we won't go back. (Plus you have to pay $0.25 for every 12 minutes of parking.)
