The food is great! but the service is super bad. The bathroom is not clean, so if you visit use the bathroom at home.
Both service and management to bad "No Customer Service." It is clear that people do not like to work there.

The atmosphere is loads of fun, especially for ocean-going types, casual but clever. The food is prepared fresh. Nobody makes as incredible cole slaw - I toss most other types, but I eat all of this! The Reel Potatoes are worth going

I dont eat fried foods, the mahi mahi sandwich was as good as anything I have ever had. I have been eating fresh seafood from the north sea to south east asia and this place is as good as any.

Pros: Best casual fresh fish Restaurant

Cons: the rice was okay

This is probably one of the more passed by restaurants that line the Malibu coast, and that probably has something to do with it's sketchy exterior and rough location next to a skeezy motel. But, listen and listen well, this place is

I remember when it was first built and have been frequenting this place ever since. Enjoy the sign of fish specials outside that changes daily! Wow how the menu has expanded over the years. Always a great place for fresh fish! A little down and dirty atmosphere, but that's the way we like it Malibu! Home potatoes have always been great and I love their seafood queseda -like nothing you've ever had before. Enjoy the cozy company at a bench inside or out or take it to go. Hands down a great dinner and fun place! Highly Recommend.

This spot was a great find on our way to a conference up in the mountains. We were starved and we weren't disappointed. I had the shrimp omelet and could not have asked for anything better (except maybe a slightly lower price). There was

Great place for fresh fish!!! Lots of variety of fish and side dishes. You put together your meal from a big list on the blackboard and choose how you want your fish cooked. Very casual. If you can't find an empty small table there are larger picnic tables to share with others. May have a line out the door in the summer on weekends! Go early.

The fish tacos were basically unseasoned tuna, lettuce and a bit of cheese. They were really unpleasant and bland. The grilled fish looked pretty good. I think tacos are not their thing. I was absolutely starving, and left hungry rather

Pros: Nice ocean view

Cons: Food and price

For the variety of fresh fish and the great side dishes - I'm never disappointed. You tell them how you like it and what you want with it (love the coleslaw, potatoes and the rice) It's casual, you have to go pick up the dishes and take it

Pros: Good Eats in Casual / Rustic Atmosphere

Cons: Access to Malibu location on busy PCH - into or out of Valet Parking

Inexpensive fresh seafood, well prepared and wide selection. Low key dive surf shack atmosphere with a cozy fireplace and well worn picnic benches.

Okay, my boyfriend loves the fish tacos here and was raving about them. When I took a bite out of mine, I HATED it. They use very fish tuna. The fresh lettuce and cheese are great, but yuck on that kind of fish. It is very affordable

Pros: fish was pretty good, tarter sauce is great

Cons: worst calamari ever, definitely not for a romantic date

Ordered the Fish and Chips with Slaw........Shrimp Scampi, Cajun rice, Steamed Veggies, and Red Fish Chowder. The Fish was insulting to the palate. The Shrimp in the Scampi ran back to Italy to tell Uncle Carmine how badly a classic

I almost lost it in this place. So at 4pm the line was only half way wrapped around the restaurant, which seemed not bad. Half hour later I was still in line and starving when I finally got up to the counter. I tried to order crab

First time trying it...the Reel Inn exceeded my expectations. Food is much better value than at competitor Neptunes Net which is super far down the PCH, where $17 gets you a big basket of fries and only a little fish.\r

Great: fish, fries, cheap white wine, outdoor dining area.\r
Terrible: overpriced, and appetizers such as calamari are overly breaded, consisting of bare slivers of meat. I usually love calamari but the greasy breading made me feel ill.

This is a great place to come to after a long day at the beach. Quick food, order at the counter, grab a seat on the benches outside. Gets busy though. Great fish tacos!

The place is relaxing and fun with friends. If you havn't been there you should go. Don't expect koi, or lobster. Expect to sit in family style picnic tables and plastic chairs, eat good food, drink cold beer and see friendly people

Not fancy to say the least, but a great choice for a day at the beach or after hiking. The fish is great; don't waste your time with anything else on the menu. I'd call this an institution in the very best way.
