Can't go to Catalina without grabbing a bite to eat here. Great fish and chips and my kids loved the poke. Had a swordfish sandwich which was also amazing.

Ordered the fish & chips. The chips were good but the fish was flavorless. There are so many other places to get great fish on Catalina, unfortunately, this place missed the mark (at least on this visit).

Like I said, Good Sloppy Fish Burgers! The fish was large chunks and fresh. Limited seating as it is basiclly a stand. Ate with some locals and they go there often for the fish. Good tarter sauce. Fast prep.

Although the fish and chips were decent, the calamari and the scallops were dry, dry, dry! And if you visit this place, don't order the mango margarita. Terrible! I couldn't even drink it. Tasted like sweet saltwater.

The fish was well cooked and flakey but this is not fine dining. It is a landmark kind of place where probably 85% of the people going to Catalina try, to say they went there. This place is on the pier, the building is green...More
