Great Food Bad Service – The food is great! but the service is super bad. The bathroom is not clean, so if you visit use the bathroom at home.
Both service and management to bad "No Customer Service." It is clear that people do not like to work there.
Fish every which way – I think I have tried almost everything on the menu! Fish Tacos, Cajun style, shrimp....you name it all good! Extremely laid back atmosphere. Can come straight from the beach and not worry about appearances, but enjoy a great meal. Still a cool place in Malibu to hang out!
Great Atmosphere; great Meal – The atmosphere is loads of fun, especially for ocean-going types, casual but clever. The food is prepared fresh. Nobody makes as incredible cole slaw - I toss most other types, but I eat all of this! The Reel Potatoes are worth going for alone, but I usually get half rice and half potatoes because they are both great. the portions are large. I have never had a bad meal there, ever.
BE CARE FULL – OUT SIDE PATIO BE CAREFULL THIS PLACE IS NOT CLEAN . THE REST ROOMS HAVE A ODER THAT GOES THUR THE PLACE
THE MANAGMENT CAN BE VERY NASTY
Sea Bass Salmon Mahi Mahi ALL SO GOOD WHEN IT'S CAJUN STYLE. Very good food. I visit this place twice a month if not more.
Beautiful Food, Beautiful People – I dont eat fried foods, the mahi mahi sandwich was as good as anything I have ever had. I have been eating fresh seafood from the north sea to south east asia and this place is as good as any.
I wont eat coleslaw anywhere else, but there's is the greatest.
Be careful crossing the highway if you park across the street
Variety of Fresh Fish – Its in beautiful Malibu , with a cosy atmosphere. outdoor tables also. Loved this place normally it's difficult to find Monkfish. They have it here and its cooked to perfection. I had Mahi Mahi grilled fish sandwich and it was awsome .My husband had the monkfish. They also have giant skin on potatoes fries
and the clam chowder that was to die for.Love this place and when in the area I will be back.
Great, Funky, Crazy, Classic Hole-in-the-Wall. Oh, and Good Seafood too – This is probably one of the more passed by restaurants that line the Malibu coast, and that probably has something to do with it's sketchy exterior and rough location next to a skeezy motel. But, listen and listen well, this place is really pretty fantastic. Obviously, it's not upscale dining. Nay, it has kept to it's roots when Malibu was just a blip on the map and cows instead of celebs were roaming the seaside cliffs. It's funky, vintage, and one of the best little places around. So, be brave, ignore the sketchy exterior, and try it!
Fun and funky! Just my style. – This spot was a great find on our way to a conference up in the mountains. We were starved and we weren't disappointed. I had the shrimp omelet and could not have asked for anything better (except maybe a slightly lower price). There was plenty of delicately seasoned shrimp hiding in a fluffy omelet stuffed with all kinds of my favorite goodies, a tossed salad and rice. We sat outside since it was a gorgeous day. Probably could have used a little stronger hand with the tidying but the atmosphere was fresh and funky and definitely screamed Malibu California to a homesick transplant.
Probably the Worst Fish Restaurant I have ever been to. – First of all, I have been to places like this all over the country. The difference between this small (non-chain) fish eatery and other is:
1. This restaurant is not clean. (look in the kitchen, patio and on the tables)
2.They can't even make fried fish right
3. The employees are simply rude.
They were great about 10 years ago and the last couple visits have shown how a place could really go downhill. Too bad!!
