Amazing seafood with an amazing view. Love driving up the PCH on a nice day - making a stop for seafood is a requirement. Really good clam chowder and fish and chips. All of their food is super fresh and has great flavor. Lines can be long and parking difficult so patience is key. Definitely worth it.

First of all if you come here there's almost always a line and parking isn't the greatest. That being said, moving onto the food, which is actually pretty good. Came here with a few friends and we ordered a variety of things off the menu, steamed shrimp, their ahi tuna burger, some of their main dishes and also the clam chowder. The fish have great flavor, they taste fresh and really light, just how it's supposed to. It's a small place, but if you don't mind a wait it's a nice place to...view more stop by for a casual lunch.view less
I shouldn't write a review for them, they are already very busy, but anyway they deserve it. The fish is the freshest you can get and being close to the beach is helpful to make the experience a good one. if your looking for something fancy, don't go, since this is a self service restaurant.
On a recent saturday my boyfriend and I took a drive out to malibu. We stopped at Malibu Fish and Seafood for some fish and chips. This is a total no frills place, no alcohol but you can bring your own, sit at one of the many picnic tables and have a view of the ocean. They have a nice variety of items on the menu and if you are inclined you can also purchase some fish for later.
This place is no frills. It's just grilled or fried fish and shellfish. It has picnic tables with breathtaking panoramic ocean views. Get there just before sunset for a special treat. You can bring a table cloth and bottle of wine or just go natural. ;)
Most negative reviewers are not taking into consideration that this is not one of Malibu's expensive restaurants, it is a fish market that also cooks fish. Nothing fancy but it's all fresh and all good. if you want more salt and pepper...view more in your clam chowder or on your fries than just shake some on people! Sheesh! I guess if these people don't really like Malibu fish & seafood than that leaves more room for us that do.view less
If you appreciate fresh seafood, you'll appreciate Malibu Seafood, if you want a fancy 5 star chef/restaurant go down the street. They are 1st a fish market, they sell fresh fish straight from the docks - order the fresh fish. That's why they're there. They started cooking the stuff they sell, then they give you a picnic table to eat it at. When the crab is in, buy it. It's grand. Their rice pilaf makes a great addition to the crab, the lobster. Just like the fancy restaurants, ...view moreyou can pick the lobster you want. I think people expect a 5 star chef because it's in malibu. Not here. It's a fish market. Understand that, you'll understand the appeal. It's good, fresh fish. It's that simple. That's why there's a line.view less
I can't for the life of me understand why this place has such a great reputation. The food is totally average & greasy seafood. The prices are high when compared to the portions & the lines are atrocious. This is just one of those places that gets a good reputation for no real reason & people just feel like they have to say it's good because everyone else thinks so. Totally average food with decent views of the ocean, if that's your thing.
This is a great stop-in for lunch on a beach day. The food is always consistent and what they lack in variety they make up for in freshness. I've been several times and have never been disappointed. If you go during the lunch or dinner rush, you can expect to wait a while, but with nice picnic-style open seating and good views of Zuma beach there's plenty to occupy your time. Their lot is definitely small, and I would recommend just grabbing a free parking spot along PCH, but other tha...view moren that a good place with great views that won't make your wallet suffer.view less
