Fish Shop Clam Chowder
Fish Shop Clam Chowder

Fish Shop’s three locations – Pacific Beach, Encinitas and Point Loma – all serve the freshest fish in the neighborhood, and the casual lunch and dinner joint has some seasonal favorite dishes they know locals and visitors to San Diego will fall in love with.

  • Warm up with Fish Shop’s piping hot bowl of classic Clam Chowder, available in a cup, bowl or bread bowl you can use to soak up all the chowder. You can also enjoy the Fish Shop Chowder, which is the classic chowder with added Andouille sausage!
  • Let Fish Shop’s Stew, made with assorted fresh fish simmered in a house-made tomato broth, warm your soul.

The Pacific Beach and Encinitas Fish Shop locations also feature a fish case, where guests can purchase fresh fish by the pound to take home and prepare. Seabass and salmon are two excellent choices and both spots also offer a seasonal catch! You can cook the fish anyway you’d like, and serve with a side of veggies in season, or see below for a unique, fall-flavored fish recipe.
