The Fish Joint and Hill St café right next to each other. If I remember right if you sat outside in the little area you could order from either. I knew the Fish Joint was going to be good when I saw local fishermen delivering...More

This place has the best fish n chips. Great music and is right on the water. It's under the Pier Bridge and across from a Ampi theater.

The wait is a little long, but I've never had bad service on this side of Hill Street. The fish and sushi are fresh and the waiter/sushi chef is always smiling, helpful, and makes great rolls that are artfully displayed!

And this place is all about it. Best Sushi in town for sure. Everything is a la carte, no all you can eat here. Their original rolls are all yummy. They also have the traditional favorites. Try the Hogsbreath roll...ah-mazing!

We were in Oceanside on vacation, and were told by a formal local to go to the fish joint. We were so happy we did. The menu was so unique and I was very pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian/vegan options also. We got the Kronic...More
