You can watch them grill your food and the bread and salad is exquisite. Awesome for big groups, families or a casual patio like section and small outdoors. Really close to the Del Mar fairgrounds.

My husband and I went with our toddler for a late lunch and were amazed at how good everything that we ordered was. The crab cakes and scallops were both fantastic, and our daughter loved it as well. The atmosphere is a little dated and...More

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.
