I go here a lot just to pick up fish for my wife. I am not a seafood person but my friends are. When they come over to eat they always compliment how fresh the fish taste and inquire where I purchased it from.

Point Loma Seafoods is a MUST visit place if you have not gone already. Very casual setting and casual dining style - order at the counter and served on paper plates. My favorites are the squid (calamari) sandwich and the crab sandwich. Fish tacos are also very good. Fantastic location right on the water - a true San Diego institution that should be at the top of everyone's list! Also, very fresh fish for purchase if you want to take it home and cook it yourself. Way better than any fish you can buy at a grocery store. There is nothing better in town!

I met my dad for lunch during the week here. Amazing. the fish is the freshest you can find anywhere. Prices are right. People come from all over the county to purchase their fish here. Instead of going to a fancy seafood restaurant, come here, order a customizable filet/cut of your favorite fish and suprise your significant other with a couple candles and world class fish dinner at home! They'll even marinate or flavor it for you and give you tips on cooking! Not a fancy place to dine in, but the fish can't be beat. Great for picnic spot on a warm day and overlooks the bay.

I pretty much love everything I've ever tried here! The guys that work here are so nice and knowledgeable. They can help you pick out anything you're looking for. The shrimp po boy here is really good. They have awesome smoked fish. The sashimi grade tunas are great too. I love the atmosphere here. You can bring the kids and eat outside. It's awesome!!

You couldn't get fresher fish if you were on the boat pulling it in yourself. Right out on the dock, this is an unpretentious stand-like place where you can get the best seafood, smoked fish and sides. Just pull up a bench outside and you're there.

I am a San Diego native and I count Point Loma Seafoods as definately one of our hidden treasures. The seafood in San Diego is excellent, however, PLS is the handsdown best place to get fresh, tasty seafood. It is a causal atmosphere where you stand in line at the fish counter to place your order. I have never been there where the line hasnt been out the door, but it moves quickly. You must try the fish sandwich with their white clam chowder. The fish sandwich is simple, battered fish on sourdough with tarter sauce, but it is the tasiest sandwich I have ever had. I highly highly reccommend this place!!!!

Point Loma Seafood a privately owned company has the best tasting seafood I have ever eaten. The food is caught fresh daily and served fresh. Beware of the incredibely long lines during lunch time everyday of the week. The place is very popular but with popularity comes long waiting time.

Pros: Service, Freshest Seafood

Cons: Crowded, No where to park sometimes

I eat, A LOT, and I've had a lot of food in my day. But for some reason, nothing compares to the shrimp sandwich at Pt. Loma Seafoods. It is honestly my favorite food on earth. Anytime I am even remotely in the area I have to stop in and grab one. I can't really speak for the rest of the menu, though I've frequently tasted the fries and lemonade (which is my accompanying beverage of choice with the sandwich), but the sandwich has been a staple for about 20 years. It's fried jumbo shrimp (no tail), tartar sauce, and the softest, warmest, best sourdough bread slices you've ever had. Sounds basic, but no one makes it like Point Loma.
The tables ARE covered in pigeons and there is always a line going into the lot, but parking is free, and if you wait patiently, you never have to wait for more than five minutes, which is totally worth it! A great place to take anyone visiting San Diego who likes seafood or boats!

Pros: Um, Shrimp Sandwich.

Cons: Seagulls? Pigeons? Really, it's all part of the seafood experience.

I recently moved back to San Diego for graduate school and the first place I went to for lunch was Point Loma Seafoods. I was happy to see the place was just like I had remembered when I was a kid. The food is fantastic, fresh, and affordable. The staff is always friendly and takes your order down with a smile.

Any time a friend comes to town I insist they try the food there. Their crab cakes are fantastic and they serve some of the best clam chowder I have even eaten. Their food is healthy and very filling. My favorite item on the menu is the tuna sandwich. It's served on sourdough and makes my mouth water when I think about it.

It's always busy when I go but the service is quick and the food is worth it!

This is simply the best. Love that it has stayed relatively the same for so many years. Never am dissappointed by the food -- ever.

Originally opened in 1963, this seafood spot has had a strong following for many moons. You'll probably never find a time when there's no line, but all the hassle is worth it. This is, simply, the best seafood market in San Diego County,…
