Have an extensive menu of fish, shrimp, calamari, etc to keep you in fried food heaven. Batter is wonderfully light and crunchy. They know how to make it right here.

Don't let your first impression of the neighborhood fool you! We had fish, shrimp, and chips. Batter was light, crispy and absolutely delicious. Tartar sauce was definitely homemade and wonderful! The interior was clean, well-maintained, and authentic retro. Love, love, loved it as did my...More

Fries and hush puppies are average. The fish was really good but the place did not meet the ranking it has.

Our daughter-in-law, who lives in Lemon Grove, took us there for lunch. it doesn't look like much from the street, but the fried fish, shrimp, "chips" aka French Fries, and onion rings were perfection. I wish we lived close so we could go back often!

Let's start by saying that 1. its not the best neighborhood. 2. They could use some better signage. It's built in what was probably a taco/mex place at one time. I almost never go to lemon grove but was in the area and the wife...More
