We ordered fish and chips, broiled salmon, and egg rolls. All of food was very good. Since we were at the restaurant with our dogs, we ate outside on a picnic table next to the parking lot. The ambiance outside as well as inside is...More

If you're a fish lover, you'll like the San Luis Fish & BBQ. Owner run and operated, the fish is fresh & great, and the prices not so bad at all for a seafood joint. Good value.

Nice little hole in the wall. Easy parking. Fish cooked well not greasy. Prices good. Seating for about 20 inside. More outside.
