Fish is the healthier protein source than meat so no wonder that it’s a must for health-conscious people, especially for people on a weight loss and bodybuilding diet. The fish-based dishes served in restaurants are also popular because of their tasty flavors, nice textures, and tempting appearance, if and when these are prepared well obviously.
And that’s exactly what the chefs at the California Fish Grill restaurants do! The fish and seafood dishes served here are among the best in the fast casual niche, thanks to the use of the freshest ingredients possible. The primary ingredients are also after the heart of environmentalists – sourced from reputable fisheries that practice sustainable harvesting practices.

What They’re Famous For
The California Fish Grill restaurants are known for their wide selection of great-tasting fish and seafood dishes. In fact, these are the main reason for their popularity among the young and old alike, many of whom like the simplicity of the dishes that bring out the best flavors.
Why Eat Here
The California Fish Grill restaurants have been likened as the more polished, more chic, and cooler older brother of Rubio’s for good reasons. The walk-up concept is similar from lining up at the register to make and pay for your orders, getting a number and proceeding to your table, and waiting for your food to be delivered by the servers. But the dishes are served on real dining utensils instead of the cheap plastic ones!
While the dishes are the stars of the show, as they should be, the fact that these are served on real plates and real forks and spoons adds to the enjoyable dining experience. The large airy dining area with its cool décor makes it a favorite among groups of family and friends, students and young professionals, even several people in their business suits, too. The table seating arrangement isn’t too crowded while the noise level still allows for good conversations without the need for near-shouting. The absence of television and Wi-Fi access may have something to do with the laidback atmosphere, too.
The crew members are highly efficient in getting the food orders from the open kitchen to the tables and in cleaning up the table afterwards. The open kitchen is among the attractions in the restaurants because people like to see how their dishes are being prepared by the chefs. There’s a sense of being in a home kitchen where you see your parents, perhaps even your grandparents, cook the food that the entire family will eat.
And the dishes are truly fantastic! There’s something for everybody on the menu, from the grilled white fish to the giant shrimp plate so it isn’t surprising that the young and old alike come here for filling and flavorful meals. The fish dishes are cooked perfectly – juicy and fluffy textures, depths of flavor in every bite from the flesh itself and from the spices used.
The entrées include Fish and Chips, Seared Ahi Tuna, and the White Fish Plate, which are usually well-seasoned and served with sides, such as rice, fries, and kale coleslaw. The fish and chips combo is a favorite because of its classic nature, as well as for the fish and chips being just the right level of saltiness. There are also optional toppings, such as the chimichurri, in case you want more flavors to the already flavorful fish and seafood.
The salsa bar has many people availing of its wide range of toppings. Your choices include the tartar sauces, cilantro, lemons, marinara sauces, hot sauces, and the salsas, even a few condiments and spices to spice things up. You should also ask for extra garlic butter, a must for slathering on almost everything on your plate – and it will definitely change the flavors of your favorite fish and seafood dishes, in a good way.
The menu also has a respectable range of beers and wines for the adults. We suggest brushing up on your food pairings so that you can get the best flavors from, say, your cold beer and fish dish combo.
The restaurants are fairly packed on lunch and dinner hours so it can be a scramble to find a table for your group. The casual ambiance makes many of the diners linger over their meals, too. There’s no need to make reservations, and many of the restaurants don’t offer delivery services although there are takeout and catering options.
The next time you have a hankering for great fish and seafood dishes, you should head on to the nearest California Fish Grill and satisfy your cravings!
