Had a lovely, informal meal at Mitch's. Lots of choice, fast service, realistic prices and a great harbour-side location.

We were looking for a seafood dinner on our last night in San Diego. This place was a gem! We tried the Fishermans Stew and crab cake appetizer. It was really delicious. Cool rustic atmosphere as well.

This nieghborhood favorite on the San Diego Bay has turned into a very busy place to go for views of the sport fishing boats as well as super fresh seafood. The lunchtime crowd stretched out the door to the wrap around deck with bar type seating (and fantastic views) so time your visit. While waiting to place your order you... More

Loved eating on the dock in this casual seafood restaurant. Great value. You get a lot of food and a look at the fishing fleet. Do not get dressed up and you order at the counter. It is hard to find the door, but worth the effort.

Mitch's is on the waterfront for very casual dining. The swordfish, shrimp and opah corn tacos were fantastic. Opah civiche and calamari were also excellent. A great selection of local brewery specials tops off a great lunch. Friendly, attentive staff makes for a fun stop

Went to San Diego to visit a relative. Agreed we had to eat grilled fresh Pacific fish without paying a fortune. Mitch's fit our criteria exactly. The place is small, on the water and very rustic. The catches of the day are listed along with their sources, such as Pacific and Hawaii. There is also a larger, extensive menu with... More

This place was recommended by our Captain at Sailing San Diego. My wife and I ate here after our sailing whale watching trip. Outstanding place, very laid back with the best clam chowder in San Diego and the freshest seafood we had. We ordered at the counter, found a seat outside overlooking the marina, and enjoyed our chowder and a... More

My husband & I each ordered from the grilled fish menu. Served over a fresh salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, avocado, cucumbers and olives, the fish was delicious. Beer and wine are served in plastic cups but they have a nice selection of both. Highly recommend dining here.

Grabbed a to-go order before I left H&M Landing on a fishing boat. Great range of choices, I opted for the yellowfin tuna poke and a pair of their Baja Stone crab cakes. The crab cakes were some of the best I've had in years. The poke was very tasty and chock full of good meat. Definitely a stop whenever... More

Mitch's was recommended to me by a fellow passengr on the plane to San Diego. Someone else at my hotel also recommended Mitch's. They were sure right. Mitch's is a fairly small restaurant with a large line of patrons ready to give their orders. It really moves quickly and when the food comes, it is simply out of this world... More
