Glad we found this place after being turned around from another local restaurant. This place is worth a visit if your in town or even 30 min away. Great service and great portions. We'll be back for sure.

Good seafood, rated well by HMB locals. Many love the fish tacos. I don't think it's an exceptional place, but pretty reliable, with decent quality and fair pricing.

The food is great here as well as the service. They also have outdoor patio seating. I give it 4 only because they could have used more heaters outside. I would definitely recommend this place for good reasonable seafood.

Easy online ordering and good food! We got the lobster roll and a Pacific Wrap with salmon. Nice big chunks of lobster, and good french fries. The Pacific Wrap had a generous portion of salmon, and is a good match for ginger-lovers. We took our food to go but they did have a good patio set-up outside that seemed to be fairly well-spa ... read more

My hubby and I were in town for a little isolated getaway. We saw the good reviews and decided to try this place out. It did not disappoint. My husband is from England and loves his fish and chips.

I visited this place 2 weeks ago with my family. The food was so good! The prices are pretty standard for a seafood place. They were only offering takeout bc of covid restrictions. We just ordered to go and ate in the car. You can order online or in person. They had tape on the floor for people to line up. It got a little confusing b ... read more

Loved Flying Fish & Grill! Went on an impromptu road trip to Half Moon Bay yesterday and my bf and I really wanted fish tacos. We aren't from the area so we weren't sure where to go. So a quick google search listed Flying Fish &Grill as the #1 spot. We quickly discovered why. It was a bit pricey but the food was really filling so tot ... read more

The garlic crab bread is to die for, it's delicious. Food is always really good and consistent. I loved coming here when we could eat outside because the patio area is really festive and has heaters. I would highly recommend this place.

Crabcakes were super meaty and fresh although a bit greasy. I would order them again despite this for the great flavor! The sauce that came with them was completely separated and hard to get on as we weren't given utensils but was very flavorful. New England clam chowder was thick and chunky and again very fresh! My date got the crab ... read more

Ordered delivery through DoorDash. Everything we received was packaged well and was really tasty. My only minor complaint was the clipper sampler plate came with only one small cocktail sauce. Other than that, we were both pleasantly surprised with how good our meal was.

In town for a conference and for the first time, I turned to Yelp for a dinner recommendation.

The calamari is AMAZING!!!! I'm a calamari fanatic & this is hands down the best calamari I've had in my life! It beats Santa Cruz wharf for sure. It's so meaty, tender, not at all chewy, battered perfectly, crunchy, flaky on the outside. I will say however, I wasn't too big of a fan of the squid ink aioli. It had an earthy undertone ... read more

Best find ever!
The food is good and portions are huge!  Just be prepared to wait a long line if you want to sit at the outside patio area.

I wanted 6 scallops on a plate but the lady wrote my order as 6 scallop tacos plate which came with rice and beans. It was way too much food!

Sat outside in their back patio for a quick afternoon appetizer (which turned into an early dinner).
