Absolutely loved this restaurant! We are from New England visiting our CA daughters. We all had the lunch combo: New England clam chowder, Salad & a piece of broiled fish. Our waiter George was friendly & experienced. The food was delicious & the service outstanding! This is a must when in North Manhattan Beach!

The Fishbar is definitely a great local spot for the El Porto (North Manhattan Beach) area! High energized atmosphere (on the louder side), televisions, bar area, and dining. Brought the girlfriends on this visit, and opted for a table vs the usual bar area. Service was great- slightly slow to take our drink order though our waiter was pretty busy,... More

This is one of those places you drive by and think why are the people lined up? Happy hour? Good prices? Great vibe? Local spot? All YES! Start with the best rose you've ever had and go straight to the grilled fish plates. Or the happy hour lobster tacos. This place knows fish and the chefs know how to cook... More

Tried this place on taco Tuesday and it was great. I tried the buffalo fish tacos & lobster MAC, and I'm hooked. I already want to go back. IT was a fair place and good portion. The restaurant was VERY packed and they don't take reservations unless its a large party. It was worth an hour drive for the food.

Had our son's rehearsal dinner here and the service was excellent and we were given the back which was great. You can call in, get on the list and come when you get texted!

The Fishbar is hands down, the best spot in North Manhattan Beach. It is called the Fishbar for a reason: fresh fish plus a great wine, beer selection along with a fullbar. Casual atmosphere, yes it has TV's showing sports, but you come for the food and neighborhood feel. Most nights have a theme: Taco Tuesday, Wine Wednesday, Lobster Thursday... More

We always enjoy our visits to Fishbar - we go maybe every other month. Only negative is that we can't make reservations for parties under 8 so the wait can take a while.

We love the food at Fish bar because it is always fresh and there are healthy alternatives if you were trying to watch your weight. If you are willing to be bad, I highly recommend the spicy calamari! It's unbelievable.

and sports bars, this is your new home. The fish is better than average and the crowd is young and fun. Not your romantic interlude on the way to a happy ending.
