If you love fish tacos, this is the place you're looking for! You choose the type of fish you want, fresh or fried. Everything on the menu is amazing, especially the fisherman's torta (seafood sandwich) or the surf and turf taco. The Ceviche is outstanding as well and packed with fish! Very inexpensive for what you get! There is another location on Turquoise Street toward La Jolla. It's not unusual to find quite a line out the door, which is indicative of how good it is!

I absolutely love the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa. If you go out by the bar, you can sit outside and have breakfast, lunch, or dinner and look out on to Mission Bay. They also have beach chairs and umbrellas by the sand that are available to the public for no charge. On certain nights of the week they have family friendly movies free of charge on the sand. Also, you can take the 'Bahia Belle' paddle boat across the bay to the Bahia Restaurant (same owners). The theme of this resort is ‘Hawaiian’ so there are Tiki torches and gas lit table tops outside. I like to go during Happy Hour and watch the sun go down.

Backyard is a Pacific Beach destination for American and pub style cuisine. They have a great beer selection and Live Music in the evenings. This can appeal to a younger crowd in the evening so get there early if you want to avoid the crowds. This is also a popular place to watch sports. I'm pretty sure it is dog friendly too for your furry friends

This is a charming and popular breakfast brunch, and lunch spot in Mission Beach. It is always delicious and a great choice for trying a unique, family owned restaurant. It is usually busy and you need to line up to order your food and then it will be delivered to your table. Located near Santa Clara Aquatic Center, the parking is plentiful early except in the Summer months. Otherwise I would suggest you Uber there.

If you are feeling like you can go back in time and enjoy soft serve ice cream, shakes, and floats, this would be a great choice! Mr. Frostie has been in the same location since 1949 and no matter w,hat time of day or night you go there, you will see a line. That's always a great indicator of how popular and good this place is. Forget counting calories here, if you are on a diet just forget about it!

I love this place! It's a little hard to find because it is located in the back of a center but it is right on the water! You have to pay for parking if you park in the lot. I usually find street parking and walk. There is no wait staff so you must order and pick up your food. The fish is amazing and always freshly caught. You'll be in heaven if you love seafood but hate high prices! You can't beat this place for a fantastic lunch. It is very crowded on the weekends so beware and get there early if you can. You'll enjoy the views if you sit outside and watch the sailboats and fishermen. The birds can swoop down and grab your meal though so be mindful of that. Midweek is best to visit this gem!

Sightseeing
The cove is beautiful and makes for some terrific sunsets. Many snorkel, scuba, and swim in the surrounding waters. Above the cove there is a nice shady park with picnic tables and a grass area. It's a wonderful place to go for a morning walk and or watch the sunset, not to mention you can eat at many locations just up the street. This is most notably known for the sea lions which are seemingly everywhere. Just look but don't touch! They aren't too fond of selfies that are too close!

This is well worth the price of admission to see this iconic aircraft carrier named after the Battle of Midway in World War II. The self-guided tour is about 3 hours long but you'll get to see all kinds of aircraft, helicopters, and exhibits from WWII all the way up to the Gulf War. Some of the spaces are a tight fit and there are stairs going everywhere. You can still visit the flight deck with an elevator if you have disabilities or have trouble walking. The view is outstanding from the ship. Paid parking is usually freely available but you should plan on staying at least 3-5 hours.
