Love the food, love the location. The manager/owner is a great guys and always smiling and welcoming and helping.. Also they have live jazz nights which are great.. Very hard to find nice locations like these.. Love this place, and would recommend highly. Grilled fish with the honey glazed Brussel sprouts. My favorite...

OC Fish grill is the best spot in Orange County. The food is absolutely fantastic. The service staff are so kind and are so hardworking! The owners are very lovely people and greet their guests and make sure their food is perfect quality.The SWAI and salmon is great or try their shrimp tacos or any appetizer( I have had them all). My boyfriend loved the mojitos!Make sure to come by on a Friday for their live Jazz with incredible musicians and a beautiful outdoor patio. We will be back very soon to this great spot in Irvine!

Nice and roomy place with fresh dishes. Would have been nice if they have more soup options. Fish was fresh and the side dishes were pretty good as well. The added bonus of you come on a Friday night, you can enjoy live Jazz!

Went to the OC Fish Grill to enjoy some Jazz (a new adventure as we like to call it) well we thought it was more of a dining restaurant but it’s more of a fast food fish spot. Not bad, the workers were very pleasant and attentive with making sure the tables we clean etc. as we were waiting for the music to start one of the musicians either placed their virtual tip jar info or spoke to the tables. Welp he bypassed our table COMPLETELY! Didn’t engage us at all. Everyone else he engaged. Would not have had a problem leaving them a tip at all but now oh well. We out!

Personally love the salmon plate and citrus salad here! They're well seasoned and reasonably priced for the portion size! Non-plate items are a little overpriced. Cajun seasoning is good. The brussel sprouts side option is delicious!

I order often from this place and the food is excellent! However... to the owner:I ordered on 10/25 and found a metal shaving in the brussel sprouts.


Came here on a Friday night when they had live music. It was PACKED! Those who showed up early to watch the live music got a nice seat in the patio area. It was very obvious that they’ve already finished eating, but were just sticking around waiting for the show to start. That was a bit frustrating as seating was very limited and they were just taking up seats from other paying customers. Overall the restaurant has a nice atmosphere despite the fact that we had to sit outside of the restaurant (since the patio was full or tables were reserved).They only take reservations for parties of 6+ otherwise you order at the counter and it’s self seating. It was a bit chaotic and difficult finding a seat. But once you order they will bring the food out to your table, so that was pretty nice. Overall the food was pretty good.

Brilliant live music. Bottles of wine for $20. $9 tuna poke. Outdoor seating. Dog friendly patio.

What a surprise! It appears to be just another fast food restaurant, when in truth, the food is anything but. The fish and seasonings are fabulously fresh and delicious. I had the grilled fish tacos and I could swear they were prepared by a fine dining chef. The atmosphere is casual, with excellent service and they are just starting to offer nights of live music for a happening kind of vibe. I want to try everything on this menu!

Driving home from Santa Barbara to San Diego and was looking for fast restaurant with healthier options than the typical burger fast food joints and found this restaurant off of the Jeffrey/University off-ramp a short distance off the 405 freeway. It has many fish plate options from grilled plates of mostly fish, but did have chicken & steak with different sides which included grilled vegetables, tacos & taco plates,, salads, bowls, children's menu, wine & beer. Food came out quick, good portions, tasty and reasonably priced. Nice break from driving and better so much better than a fast food burger joint.

Loved the place! Nice outdoor seating area and good food with good price. I ordered the fired plate with sweet potato fries and coleslaw. Fish is super good ?I am surprised that it’s not even crowded on weekdays like other places

Wow this is a great place. I had an early dinner here yesterday with three of us in our party and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the battered fish and chips with two sides. And the fish portions were very large with mostly fish and light flavorful batter and very fresh fish. I also had a happy hour draft beer Modelo for only five extra bucks. BTW the fish and chips were reasonably priced at $10.99.The great thing about this place is that you order at the counter and they serve your food at your table. So you avoid all the full service table fees.This would be a great place to just drop in order a meal and take it to go if you are in a hurry.Highly recommended. I will definitely be back. This will become one of my go to restaurants

Fog harbor fish house OC Fish Grill is a cool stylish place on pier 39. It is in the touristy area and could easily be overly frequented by the tourist crowd. Get a reservation and do not try to drop inFood is very fresh. We got the seafood tower and it was a very clean presentation. Lots of choices. It is crab season so that was a very tasty choice for us. Try the clam chowder and fresh oysters they are well worth it.
