Nothing beats a beautiful Sunday drive to the coast with great weather and delicious lunch with seafood at the center. This lunch was our second time back, and we were delighted with the freshness of the seafood dishes and the simple arrangments. The decor is a little tired and old, but the place is clean and always busy. I like... More

There were five adults and two children (12 & 9) in our party. We were celebrating one of the adults' birthday. Trouble started with the appetizer. We ordered calamari and cheesy bread.

Have eaten there many times. Had our Son's rehearsal dinner there and they were great. The food is excellent along with great service. The bar is off to the side for those that want to drink separately. Great for large or small group or just for one. Really good food 😊

Then the main dishes were yin yan salmon, seafood pasta and black cod. All were very good. To finish well, we had hot fudge and creme brûlée. We had only one night in town and we... More

I was looking specifically for the best fish and chips... and found it at Flying Fish. The batter was so light and perfect, not greasy. I loved every bite. The fish taco was good too, but not nearly as special as the fish and chips. Thank you!

This is an easy, laid back place perfect to go to for fish tacos after a lovelt day of walking around beautiful Half Moon Bay. I like the vibes and I liked the wait staff.

Made a quick stop here on the way back to San Francisco. We had the tacos: fish, scallop, and shrimp. Can honestly say these were the best I've ever had! Fresh, perfectly seasoned and perfectly served. The staff was friendly, fast, and inviting and the place itself is absolutely lovely. Thank you for a wonderful ending to a wonderful day.
