Came for for the first time after glancing through the menu. They have several fresh/local catches of the day available which I found unique. The food was sub-par though. The market selections (fresh catch of the day) were extra season and over-cooked. Service was OK, we waited 20 minutes to get our appetizer with no body stopping by to offer drinks. The place was crowded and the ambiance in general I wouldn't consider good for a date. In general I didn't think the food and the service were aligned with the price. I'd say this is more of a happy hour type of place. The restaurant was just a bit above your regular bar food restaurant.

Food was great! I got the rolled halibut tacos. The salsa and avocado were super fresh and the tacos had a satisfying crunch. The clam chowder was good, but not noteworthy.

The service was very poor. I will give them the benefit of the doubt that this is temporary as in-person dining ramps back up.

The ambiance was below average. We sat on their front patio, which looks out at the train tracks and the freeway. Also, the patio chairs were rather uncomfortable and a bit flimsy.

Was excited to take my mom to this local restaurant, left disappointed. We were seated at our table for at least 10 minutes before a server even approached us. She had no idea we were in her section. Food was delivered to our table and we still hadn’t received utensils or napkins. Food was below average, bland and fries seemed to have been fried in old oil. Chicken tenders were hard to distinguish from the fries and the “lobster” tacos had the smallest pieces of lobster, mostly filled with cheese and pico de gallo. Unlikely to return or recommend to friends/family.

Great food. Kind of a hole in the wall atmosphere which isn’t a negative just not “fine dining.” Would repeat definitely.

First time being here and we are definitely coming back! The staff was super nice and the food was fantastic. The place was crowded but all the COVID measures were in place which made us feel comfortable. If you are looking for great seafood at a reasonable price, you search has ended.

Outstanding value for the best fresh fish in San Diego. My Swordfish BLT was excellent as were the crispy french fries. I have eaten here many times and every plate was delicious. I highly recommend Bay Park Fish Company. It is my "go to" place when I want seafood.

Fish tacos were very good and the beans and rice the perfect accompaniment. All the way from Florida, it was a pleasant dinner out on our last evening before heading home. Staff members were efficient, friendly and helpful. Seating was adequately distanced to feel safe in the current environment.

We’ve enjoyed coming here for a few years and was glad they were able to reopen. Service and food are always outstanding, always have the nicest servers and staff! Drinks never go empty!
Found it odd this time when we went in they said they were “booked” and asked if I had reservation, no I didn’t as I’ve never have had to. Walked back to the car and guess what I found.. i was able to get a reservation on open table, so we walked back and showed her my reservation and she says she can seat me??!! So I’m a matter of -2- minutes they had “plenty” of open tables???!!! At least 8 on the back patio!
Anyways we’ll be back since we really love everything about the place.. we’ll just make sure to pre book a table!

We go on Thursdays early evening because it’s oyster night. A buck an oyster. They are Nautilus oysters from Mexico and they are the best! The main courses are always excellent. This time we split a macadamia crusted halibut. OMG! We are so lucky to live close by.

My boyfriend and I came here for a Friday night date. I made my reservation on open table and upon arrival we were sat right away which was great. Unfortunately, we were sat in a back room next to the kitchen. There happened to be a lot of screaming children in this section which kinda took away from the dinning experience. The service was outstanding! The entire staff especially our waitress was super attentive and had really great energy. The food was good for the most part. We had a couple shell pieces in our oysters which were a bit unpleasant. Poke was fresh, coconut shrimp was tasty. The crusted halibut was a bit soft could have been crispier. The potatoes and veggies had good flavor. I appreciate that they offer local seafood options and they have a variety of dishes.

We were quite excited to eat here but disappointed in the initial offer to sit at a tiny counter when we arrived for our reservation. We did get seated at an outside table which was great but the entire time we were at the restaurant it was very obvious they wanted us to be there for as short a time as possible. We ordered sushi which was great and the lobster macaroni & cheese- the lobster was delicious, the sauce on the macaroni was thin and runny

Food is consistently great as is service. They have a very wide range of items on the menu. The tables were a little close considering we're just opening up, My back was against another couple at a table. The adults at the table were all vaccinated but the kids were not so we placed them furthest away from the other tables.

Not happy with how some of the food was. The clam chowder tasted too herby, the fried calamari was too chewy, the 2 dozen oysters were tiny & stuck to their shells. I felt like they overcharged us for the food and overall we were not satisfied or happy at all. The service forgot to bring us items such as plastic bags for our leftovers and we had to ask again for them. I also mentioned on opentable it was my son’s 7th birthday and they did not say or do anything special for him. I wish we received some refund back at least.

The food is absolutely delicious at the Bay Park Fish Co.
I had the white seabass with rock shrimp and jasmine rice. The sauce was wonderful!
I had a birthday celebration and chose the yummy peach cobbler.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was amazing! We ordered calamari and brussel sprouts to start. For entrees, we all ordered and shared. Halibut with rock shrimp, cioppino, shrimp scampi and the poke bowl. So much flavor and all the seafood was fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back. Kudos to the chef and staff. Great service!
