“Best new casual seafood dining chain! Standout items were the lobster taquitos, the ceviche, and the seafood roll. It is a challenge to find lobster in any orders at quick casual dining places, but they have managed to do it right! Time to bookmark ALL the locations so I can get my fill wherever I am!”
– Jeff P., Restaurant visitor, Albuquerque, NM
“Tasty, flavorful, authentic, fresh and reasonable priced seafood with excellent service, awesome friendly staff. Best of all, you can taste the hype! Enough said! If you like seafood, you’re missing out if you’re not giving this place a try. Nothing disappoints, my family was satisfied and loved everything!”
– Trinity H., Restaurant visitor, Glendale, AZ
“Really tasty Lobster roll; the ingredients are really fresh and they are generous with the lobster! I liked that they had a large variety of sauces from Siracha to blackened Habanero (something for all spice levels). The coleslaw was also very tasty. I will definitely be returning!”
– Yessica C., Restaurant visitor, Montebello, CA
“Once I saw the menu, I really got excited about the food! I couldn’t believe how big the fish taco was – I needed two-hands! The fish was fresh and the toppings and sauces made the whole dish come together. It was definitely the perfect fish taco – best I ever had. I’m bringing my friends!”
– Minky K., Restaurant visitor, South L.A., Los Angeles, CA
“Yes! The fish tasted very clean and the batter was perfectly crispy. Fries were delicious. The ultimate fish taco was huge and so good! Their clam chowder was pleasantly rich; you got the sense that it was freshly prepared, not some reheated product. We found Slapfish to be our new favorite fish place!”
– Ahsinohr N., Restaurant visitor, Nichols Hills, OK
“Had Slapfish at LAX, got 2 huge pieces of fish and a side of the pickles. It was so much food that I could only eat half! Location was very clean, and I loved all the hot sauces, malt vinegar, and other condiments you can choose from. Slapfish has the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. Prices are very reasonable.”
– Dee P., Restaurant visitor, San Francisco, CA
