San Diego Restaurants

The Tin Fish

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

On the rare rainy San Diego day, the staff can take it easy at this eatery less than 100 yards from the Petco Park baseball stadium, where half of the 100-odd seats are outdoors—otherwise the whole place is pretty much always jammed. Musicians entertain some evenings, making this a lively spot for dinners that range from grilled and fried fish to seafood burritos and tacos. The quality here routinely surpasses that at grander establishments. Hours vary whether it's baseball

season or not, but the Tin Fish usually stays open until 8 pm Sunday through Thursday, and generally until 11 on Friday and Saturday.

If you are going to the ball park or at a convention

this is the perfect place to grab a quick and well priced meal. The food was good and service was very fast and professional.

Great fish and chips

Excellent fish and chips and seafood stew. Very good location, opposite the convention center and on the edge of the Gaslamp district. Outdoor patio is very inviting.
