This is one of my absolute favorite places to eat lunch or to buy seafood to cook at home. Let's talk about when you go here first of all. Don't go on a summer weekend anytime between 11:30 and 2:00. As Yogi Berra said, "No one goes there any more. It's too crowded." It's often a 1 hour line on... More

We are quite frequent at this "shack" for its casual good sea food, another reason might be you do not have much choices in and around Malibu! Out of towners recently have discovered this place, so it went its quick, not crowded and quiet feel. Its just a shack with a kitchen behind it, the food is fresh and cooked... More

No nonsense seafood place by the Pacific Coast Highway, with both a fresh seafood market and a nice restaurant service with seafood dishes. We took the mussels and a deep fried Seafood Combination - everything was very tasty and fresh. It was a fortunately a beautiful day when we visited, so the possibility of eating it by the beach just... More

The cooked food is ok if you like mostly fried food but the best part is the store with the freshest seafood to take home and cook.

The lines are long and I now know why! The food was fresh and delicious! Order at the counter, pick up at the window, find your seat and enjoy! Simply scrumptious!

This place is a gem! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is very low key. You order at a window and seat yourself. Everything is outside so pay attention to weather. There is no alcohol to buy but we saw people bring their own, although I'm not sure this is technically allowed. But it doesn't really matter because it... More

Great place to stop for lunch. Seating is outdoors and the view is spectacular. Food is good. We spent 72.00 for a family of 4.They were very busy but it didn't take long to get our food.

My favorite restaurant. Fresh fish eaten outside at picnic tables with a view of the sunset over the ocean. We don't stop here when the lines get long, which seems to be on holiday weekends. There is also a sweet - sometimes quite hot, though - hike up the hillside behind Malibu Seafood.

Thank MaJeHo
