We went there for lunch and a decent, inexpensive meal. It's not high quality, but it's far better than some Long John's. For the price, it's a great value.

family run, not fancy, just plain good fish , also the cioppino soup is to die for. I have been all over the world, and this is the best I have ever eaten in.

You know, I had a darn good meal here, and considering that 4 of us ate for $40, a great bargain. My Swordfish was really good, as was the calimari. My wife's shrimp was a tad over cooked, but still good. Looking for seafood that won't break the bank, this is your place.

If you're a fish lover, you'll like the San Luis Fish & BBQ. Owner run and operated, the fish is fresh & great, and the prices not so bad at all for a seafood joint. Good value.

Nice little hole in the wall. Easy parking. Fish cooked well not greasy. Prices good. Seating for about 20 inside. More outside.

It might not look like much from the outside, but the food is excellent inside. The prices are good too. If I'm ever in the area again, I will eat here.

This little eatery didn't look inviting at the first entry, but you can be sure the fish is really fresh and tasty. The price is good, resulting a very good value for money deal. The asian staff is very very friendly. The owner just runs his shop longer when guests keep coming in at late evening.

We wanted some good seafood so we asked our cab driver for a recommendation. Upon pulling up in front of this place we were a bit apprehensive. Our fears were unfounded! Several locals were enjoying their meals and they were quick to recommend the halibut (which was delicious). The family that runs this place is friendly, the food is good,... More

They were the pioneer of fresh fish in town, but now there are newer restaurants with more ambience but higher prices. Still a place where locals go to eat fresh fish or buy to take home.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way from Santa Barbara to the bay area. Great halibut and chips, great seafood bisque, warm and friendly service. Not fancy, but we'd definitely stop there again when in the vicinity.
