Don't mistake this small place with something insignificant! Simple and tasty, it's totally worth it! We had lunch there and it's really affordable and very tasty! Great experience!

Look, this is a tiny place on the harbor. The food is over-cooked and not that tasty. People love this place and line up outside and wait for a long time to get their food, but, really? Not worth it, IMHO.

Barbara's does not take reservations but it is worth the wait. Their system works well for getting people in/out quickly without making you feel rushed. Great views of the Pillar Point Bay from inside or outside. Food is consistently yummy! They offer other items than fish for those non-fish eaters. They also offer fish prepared all ways other than just fried. We go as a family (3 generations) regularly and love it. Not a fancy restaurant but location, good food and nice wait staff make it a delight!

Go to place for fried fish in HMB. When I crave fried fish and want to wait for a table, Barbara's is consistent and good. Also, clam chowder and fried artichokes are good. With abundant portions, many times you will leave with a doggie bag. They also have a to go window open on the weekends if you want to stop and grab something for the beach. Barbara's sits on the harbor so nice view and outdoor seating. They use Rice oil I think for frying and oil is always fresh. Good for lunch. Parking is a little tight at times and there is not a comfortable place to wait for your table to open up. I still love Barbara's and think of it as a tentative stop when I have the urge for fried seafood. They have other stuff on the menu, but I always go for the fried for some reason.
