Well, not just beer. I had a cocktail and a delicious spicy roll. This place has burritos that you wouldn't think you could finish, but the luscious ingredients compel you to eat it all.

Good food but too pricey for my taste based on the quantity of food for the portion given. I am picky though

When you find your way back to Newport Beach and Huntington Beach Southern California it’s an easy magnetic draw to find yourself at either location of Bear Flag. Celebrating the Fourth of July in Orange County last week I joined two friends for a mid...More

I love the location and the ambiance. Very casual and beach themed. However, the food is not as great as people say. And it's very expensive for what it offers. It's a cool place to grab a bite with friends, but don't expect too much...More

This was our first stop in our spontaneous Newport Beach Taco Crawl. We each got 2 specialty fish tacos. They were good, but nothing special. If you're in the area and have a craving for fish tacos, I would come here. I wouldn't go out...More

Went with group of friends. Fish fresh-market too. Had sashimi but tasted frozen. The burritos-awesome! They did run out of guac but continued to serve avocado in tacos. Casual ambience.

mediocre tasting food. The flavors were really weak. Both the bear flag burrito and fish tacos were quite bland. The emphasis seemed to be on presentation not taste.

Good quick seafood that is good to eat. Indoor and outdoor seating. Fish tacos are good as well as their fish of the day.

This is a great casual sport for fresh fish. It’s not fancy, but then that’s not why you go. Fresh is the word of the day. The burritos are great. You select the fish and they do the rest. We like the shrimp or scallops...More

Bear Flag Fish Co. is the seafood wonderland we all long for on idle summer days, a fish market-cum-restaurant where brilliant slabs of tuna glint like rubies and the spindrift of crashing waves hangs in the air. It’s minimalism at its seafaring best — Bear Flag understands that often all a fish needs is a satisfying char and the salty rush of a beach breeze.- LA TimesThe Bear Flag Fish Co. pushes a healthy lifestyle that’s exuded from just about everything in their spot, including the food, the decor and the good looking people coming in and out.-FoodBeastSometimes good food is simply, simple. Its fresh ingredients create an effortless melody, the kind you find stuck in your head when you’re in the shower, or driving to work or when you’re cleaning up around the house. -OC Register
