I heard different reviews on this place and decided to check it out. The atmosphere was absolutely beautiful!! Ocean view with a huge patio, The waitress came over and was very friendly. She explained the specials and highly recommended for us to try one of their fish dishes. So I had their stuffed salmon with a shrimp and crab stuffing and was not disappointed. Infact it was delicious!! It was served with garlic mash potatoes and steamed asparagus. My friend had a salad that also was fantastic with a variety a fish and was piled on a bed of mix greens. She was in heaven with this dish. We each had a glass of wine and it had a great wine selection. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be back thier soon,
I recently ate here for lunch the other day. The location is great! It is located right on the Chula Vista marina and you can see all the docked boats. Very cool! Our server was also very attentive and helpful. She came over right after we sat down to take our drink orders. She was very friendly and had some good recommendations. We split the Kung Pow Calamari and it was really good. I loved the sauce that it came with. For my meal, I had the fish tacos. They were delicious and a good size too. Another great thing about this place is the parking, there are few restaurants on the water where parking isn't an issue.
This our favorite place for lunch, dinner and especially Sunday brunch. The manager here (the older one) is the greatest! A genuinely nice person. He makes you feel really welcomed. The food is excellent!! You have to try the seafood salad!! A huge portion of a excellent variety of seafood and its sooo fresh! They serve it for lunch and dinner. Love the mahi sandwhich they offer for lunch. Fresh! fresh! fresh! Beautiful Ocean Harbor views and they always have tables available right by the window. Parking is a breeze. Reasonable prices Quality food, wonderful atmosphere.
We've been here a number of times, mostly for private parties in the banquet room, but also brunch a couple times. The setting is very nice, and a good alternative to more expensive downtown ocean view restaurants. Parking is convenient. You can also walk outside and enjoy the view, boats, etc. They have a nice brunch, took mom and she was very impressed. They kept the champagne flowing which is always appreciated. Have not been there for regular dinner or lunch, but our experiences have always been positive and we'd go back, especially for brunch.
My friend and I have been here three times in the last few weeks and have been pleased each time. To be honest we have only tried the weekly specials and happy hour items but each time the service, drinks, and food has been quite good. We have found the waitresses and manager to be very friendly and eager to please their customers. I do agree that this restaurant caters to the middle age group and is not a hot spot but that's perfect as we are usually looking for a place to relax by their fire pits and enjoy the view and not listen to loud children.
Our out of town friends came in and we working looking for a place to go out to dinner. I had been to this restaurant years ago and I remembered the food was pretty good and the view was great. The special for the night was Lobster for $14.95 and was really good. Our server did a good job and made us feel welcome. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the prices and every night they have a different special which for the food and the view is a great value. We will be back
I just got back from eating here for the first time and it is in my top 3. I can't believe how good it was and how helpful our server was (all of them actually). This seafood place compares to other ones I've been to in Colima, Mexico. Oceanaire in downtown has NOTHING on southbay fish and grill, it's a million times better. I would rather have the fish ceviche by itself than anything at oceanaire.
I brought my friend here the other day and we had an amazing time we sat out on the patio next to the fire pits and had amazing view of the water.. The food was excellent they have amazing seafood the happy hour is one of the best ive seen around two thumbs to south bay fish and grill we will be returning soon thank you for a great time
Anyways, go during happy hour for cheap drinks ($4 margarita monday). We had a tostada de ceviche (so unique and fresh, heard the shrimp ceviches good too), and fried calamari (served with rice, I liked them because they were light, not greasy). My friend had the strawberry margarita and gives it 5 stars.
Just had dinner here and them starter bread was great and they kept bringing more when I wanted more. The wife had the prime rib and it as also great I had seafood. The price over all was great. I feel bad for everyone that had a bad experience but I will come back here again.
