Our group loved the sashimi and ceviche. It's casual and seat yourself. Awesome. Also, LOADS of vegetarian options!! I had the charred tofu burrito and it was fab. We loved the salsa too. We will revisit before we leave town.

Great location for fish tacos. Order in and sit in the outside seating area. Serves alcohol also with the meals. Local fish place which stays active in the middle of the shopping district.

This restaurant was highly recommended to our family. Cute atmosphere, but limited seating. The ahi poke was really good, but the halibut was very fishy and overcooked. Sushi was wonderful. The Opah was also good. Great service! More casual than we expected.

This is THE BEST place for fresh fish!! The salmon plate with rice and avocado is my ultimate favorite!! The burritos are amazing also, and the chips are addicting. I could eat here twice a week every week!

Bear flag has a wide selection of fish with multiple styles to prepare it. We chose the burrito, which was packed and delicious. Lots of seating inside or outside in the courtyard, with free parking in the nearby lot.

Bear Flag Fish Co. is the seafood wonderland we all long for on idle summer days, a fish market-cum-restaurant where brilliant slabs of tuna glint like rubies and the spindrift of crashing waves hangs in the air. It’s minimalism at its seafaring best — Bear Flag understands that often all a fish needs is a satisfying char and the salty rush of a beach breeze.- LA TimesThe Bear Flag Fish Co. pushes a healthy lifestyle that’s exuded from just about everything in their spot, including the food, the decor and the good looking people coming in and out.-FoodBeastSometimes good food is simply, simple. Its fresh ingredients create an effortless melody, the kind you find stuck in your head when you’re in the shower, or driving to work or when you’re cleaning up around the house. -OC Register
