Most seafood is drowned with heavy and creamy sauces which might be ok for many, not for me. Cebiche was mediocre, Baja Taco, huge and good. Can use some spicy salsas, limited. Clam chowder was poor.

We ate here after our flight from Kansas, a cute local spot with great food. We had fish tacos and the clobster grilled cheese and they were both so good. I even went back a couple days later for lunch and had the fish and...More

Enjoyed lunch with lobster grinder, the Dagwood, fish taco and fish and chips. You can order grilled or fried options on the fish. Very good overall, each order came with fries as well. Clam chowder with nice chunks of potatoes and clams. Generous fish portions....More

Counter ordering and some seating inside and out-have crafted sodas and fish items in many different options with grilled or crispy choices-I say try it you will like it! The big burrito is a favorite and fish n chips

I hate to write a negative review, but I want to warn others. We came here based on reviews, and the service was fine, etc, but the fish was bland. Like, really bland. Like, maybe they don't use salt.

Cluster is the first word that came to mind after eating there! We were recommended this place by a friend. My husband ordered the lobster grinder and I ordered a cup of chowder and clobster (grilled cheese with crab and lobster). I liked the condiments...More

We visited Slapfish after exploring Balboa Island. It is counter service but all made to order. You can sit outside but the view is the parking lot so we chose inside. We tried a crispy fish taco, the shrimp sandwich and the lobster grinder. All...More

You have to try the chowder fries. A serving of french fries topped with chowder and chopped bacon. What a great idea! Fish tacos had a generous serving of fish. But, weren't any better than what I've had other places. Great peach lemonade. Dirty bathroom....More
