The food at the Fish Market is always fresh, well prepared and delicious. Their menu changes daily to insure that they only serve the freshest fish. The menu is varied. Parking here can be problematic. Good place for children. They do have a kids menu.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! The food is so fresh. There are so many choices. I had lunch one day and my birthday dinner another day.

Description
Located across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Race Track, our third restaurant has been a San Diego North County favorite since it opened in 1981. This bustling restaurant encourages friendly and convivial dining, with the help of a comfortable oyster bar and cozy cocktail bar and lounge, and front-and-center retail market, widely known by those seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. We also offer a private room suitable for a large party gathering.
