Best fresh seafood in San Diego. I love their red crab sandwich. Everything is so fresh but be prepared to wait 30-45 min in line on busy days.

Laid-back seafood restaurant and market serving some of San Diego best seafood. Conveniently located .4 miles away.

The food is great, and the fish tacos are amazing. However I suggest you get there slightly early because there is and always will be a very long line

Good clam chowder for a decent price. Five bucks for a bowl that can feed 2 people!

Tucked along International Restaurant Row Blue Water Seafood serves fresh seafood for everyone to enjoy. There's always a line out the door when I visit so obviously it's a happenin' place. On one of my visits I shared a bowl (vs. a cup) of New England clam chowder and it was wonderful. Creamy with ample clams and seasoned perfectly. Best $5.40 spent on the trip :)

Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, hosted by Guy Fieri. Enjoy San Diegos Freshest Seafood Grilled to perfection with your choice of marinade, served in a sandwich, a salad or a plate. Or sample their famous fish tacos, homemade soups & chowders and fresh oyster bar. It is not a fancy seafood restaurant, in fact you wait in line to order at the counter, then find a place to sit down (either inside or out) while your food is being prepared. But it is known as one of the best (if not THE BEST, Freshest & Tastiest) seafood joints in town. With over 2,000 4 and 5 Star reviews, this claim can't be wrong.

Wow! I ordered the yellowfin sandwich with lemon butter sauce. Fantastic. Fish n chips were good but a little greasy. And the best ranch dressing.

These may not be the best fish tacos in San Diego, but you could've fooled me. Super fresh, simple toppings served with good beer.

Excellent tacos, but the perpetual line and the slightly high price keep me from coming back as often as I'd like. Parking is also a bit difficult on India Street.

My favorite place for any form of seafood tacos. They have fresh seafood and their tacos are very generous. The poke was also to die for. The lines can be long depending on the time you go.

I had a lot of fun going here, especially because a friend hyped up the Clam Chowder. It did not disappoint, it was pretty tasty, and I paid a few extra dollars to get it in a bread bowl. In addition I ordered some shrimp tacos, those were tasty, but not to die for. To be honest, I would come here again, it is not far from home!! Just anticipate your meal to cost accordingly.. as they charge for the fresh fish!

Yup, not hype! I waited an hour to get some tacos when I was in town. I was scared that my wait would all go to waste, but it was not.

I got 4 different kind of taco without SOS (sauce on side). For all of the tacos, I got their lemon garlic butter, which is the way to go in my own opinion. The fish taco came with large chucks of fresh free. I was wondering why they were charging $5.00 per taco; well, once you take a bite of it, you know exactly why.

I also ordered their cioppino, which was delicious and fresh. The seafood were all sitting in a pot of yummy red sauce soup. Their oysters are also amazing fresh. When you eat it, you can tell they shock it fresh!
