Another Carlsbad opportunity to sample the fresh, mouth watering produce of the sea. Clean, efficient and very appealing. Great fish tacos (grilled) and wonderful chowder. Very relaxed atmosphere and very reasonable prices.

The clam chowder was excellent but it went downhill from there. I ordered the char-grilled halibut and it was rubbery. I asked for tartar sauce and they charged me $.50. I've been to countless seafood places and they've never charged for tartar sauce! My husband...More
