I loved the fast casual aspect of this place!! I was able pick the fish, shrimp, oysters I wanted and then choose the preparation. Big beers, smiles and knowledgeable fishmongers make this place a fun little stop for the family.

A friend from the area took us here to show us the history through pictures on the walls of Captain Kidds. It was awesome to see. The food was great - fresh seafood with steamed veggies is what we ordered. The atmosphere is extremely casual. Plenty of seating on picnic table bench style. Fresh seafood for sale to take home...

I first ate at Captain Kidd's over 40 years ago when a "foodie" neighbor (back before the word "foodie" entered the modern lexicon) took us to the Redondo Beach pier. Fresh ingredients in old school recipes that are cooked just right really is a hard combination to beat. I took my son to Captain Kidd's this week and it's still... More

I visit family in this area a few times each year and I make it a priority to stop here for lunch. The staff is helpful and friendly and the food if fresh and delicious. It's a very casual setting so I always feel welcomed even if I'm still in my workout clothes. It's an easy walk from Hermosa Beach... More

You'll get your food straight from the tanks right on site so you can be sure you're eating fish that is fresh fresh fresh. Whether you choose a sandwich or a mouthwatering piece of fish, or one of their delicious soups, you won't be disappointed with the seafood. the sides? Not so much. I'd recommend sticking with the fish and... More

This restaurant is a landmark by the Redondo Beach Pier. I always enjoy coming here for the fresh selection of fish. They have also good clam chowder and shell fish. Service is quick but sometimes line maybe long depending on time and days. There is a open patio to enjoy the sunsets.

Something different to try. All types of shell fish, crab, fish and more. Cooked to your liking with toppings, sides and extras. Fresh food and the staff were helpful, experienced it but not my kind of dining. Don't let that put you off, you decide.
