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.
