Pacific Beach Fish Shop

Top choice seafood in San Diego

You can't miss this fishy-themed joint with its enormous swordfish hanging outside. Inside, it's a casual, communal bench affair. Choose from more than 10 types of fresh fish at the counter, from ahi to red snapper, then pick your marinade (garlic butter to chipotle glaze), then select your style – fish plate with rice and salad, taco or sandwich perhaps?

Wash it down with local craft beer or wine.
