For the past 49 years, this Busalacchi family-owned restaurant has been a casual San Diego favorite. Dine inside or on the bayfront patio and enjoy the romantic marina view. Customers order food at the cashier’s window and pick it up at the take-out window. But customers don’t mind because the fresh seafood is so good.
Sportsmen’s Seafood Restaurant is popular for their fish and chips which are a big seller, and no wonder! They are crispy, fresh and plentiful. And be sure to note the daily specials of fresh fish entrées. Usually there is salmon, sea bass, snapper, yellowtail and ahi. Fresh local lobster is also served October-March. All are served grilled and come with rice or fries and a salad. They do box lunches to go and also have a fresh seafood market. Open daily for lunch and dinner.
