Captain Kidd’s Fish Market serves up some of the best and freshest seafood in the South Bay. Order your food and eat oceanside at this local favorite.
As someone who lives on the west side of Los Angeles, getting to the South Bay in general isn’t convenient. That’s probably why I don’t go too often:-) It took me almost an hour to get there but it’s LA so I kind of expected that. I also had my foodie buddy in tow (aka my sister) so it wasn’t that bad. I pulled up to a pleasant surprise….um can we say ocean view?!?! Believe me, the hour drive meant nothing as soon as I was sitting outside with my bucket of shrimp with the ocean breeze in my hair.
I was like a kid in a candy store! Live crab, lobster, mussels, shrimp, etc. You name it, they got it.
The market has a hot counter as well that serves gumbo, chowder, bisque, cioppino, etc.
Oysters! I’m a sucker for oysters. As soon as I saw them in the market I knew I was getting a half dozen.
Several different types of crab are available. You can even pick your own live crab.
Take it home or they’ll cook it there for you!
The best part in my opinion was the fish selection. For $4.99, you pick your fish from the market and they will grill it, saute it or deep fry it for you. And it comes with 2 sides. No denying it’s a great deal.
Why take it home? Sit outside and enjoy the fresh air!
You order your food at the front, grab it and get a seat. I visited on a Friday afternoon for lunch and had no problem finding a table.
All of our food came very quickly. Which is good cause we were ready to dig in!
These oysters were HUGE. I probably only needed 3.
Seafood Cioppino…OMG. It’s almost as good as mine hahaha:-)
If I’m ever in the South Bay I will absolutely visit Captain Kidd’s Fish Market again The seafood was some of the freshest I’ve ever had and the staff was super friendly. Win-win.
