Sportsmen's Seafood Restaurant... !: What to do with that 600 pound Tuna?
...and Mario's fish processing, is the answer. Also there is the Fresh Fish Market where you can buy fish to cook yourself.
Yes, this is a seafood market and restaurant, but also it is a packing company that will Smoke, Filet and vacuum pack that 600 pound tuna you caught while out on the deep sea fishing tour. They'll keep it in cold storage or freeze-wrap it for you, all in one day.
However if it's just an inexpensive meal you're looking for, they offer that too. This is not a fancy, fine dining restaurant, but the kind of place that is comfortable and offers great seafood at an affordable price. Their clientele consists mainly of boaters staying in the near-by marina and fishermen returning from a day out on the ocean.
They also sell box lunches for those in a hurry to get on that "deep sea" fishing boat. Even if you're not just off the fishing boat, stop in for a treat and dine inside or out on their patio with a view of the marina.
Just in case you'd like to know, it is within walking distance of the Hyatt in Mission Bay.
Just stopped in to check on things for a VT Member who plans to pass this way. The prices have gone up, but still less expensive than most places around and their hours are 11 am-7 pm.
Favorite Dish: Usually a shrimp cocktail, and Fish & Chips. The fish is a bit smaller than what i'm used to but the taste is good. The coffee wasn't the best.
On a special ocassion, I'd splurge and have Oysters on the 1/2 Shell, Tossed Salad, a small Cioppino, Whole Lobster and for dessert, their Chocolate-Chocolate Mousse Cake!

Cane's Bar & Grill--Closed: A Local Favorite!
The hottest spot on the beach and packed with locals most of the time. Cane's offers rooftop seating, which include fantastic views of the activity along the boardwalk, the pounding surf and beautiful sunsets while sipping one of their famous Hurricane drinks. Casual dress is the norm and expect a noisey, festive atmosphere.
Canes closed it's doors, probably due to the poor economy. In it's place you'll find the Wave House. I haven't eaten at the restaurant here but have heard that it was a fun place, more like a day club, lots of fun.
Actually, it's more than a restaurant. sort of a cross between night--day--club and an
amusement park in it's own right. Of course, don't forget the wave machine.
Favorite Dish: I haven't a favorite dish from this restaurant because I haven't eaten here and I've heard mixed comments about the food. Some think it's good a some were disappointed. I'd say that food is not the main focus of the Wave House, but it might be worth a stop for the drinks and the entertainment, sometimes live, but it is the patio overlooking the ocean that appeals to me.
