Had dinner here in a cool
Had dinner here in a cool and foggy night. Recommended by our hotel as they have their own boat so fish is super fresh. We shared the flash fried calamari and the Rock fish tacos with mango salsa. Yum! Service was friendly and fast and the place had a good lineup by the time we left. I think reservations would be needed during busy times. Delicious and fresh!
Great seafood joint
The Catalyst seafood bar is simple---a harbor town fresh catch seafood restaurant. Prices are reasonable. The flash fried calamari melted in my mouth, not chewy like some can be. My wife's special smoked tuna tacos were also great. The staff was very friendly, service was quick. It was a great dinner after a day of travel.
Awesome Fish Tacos
We stopped here our first night in town - server was a delight, and our food was delicious out on the patio. I see it is consistently very busy - no surprise!
We ate lunch here on our first day in Brookings and we enjoyed everything. I had the fried oysters and my wife ate the shrimp tacos. She loved the tacos and my onion rings. I enjoyed the oysters and onion rings too. The oysters could have had a little more crisping but nonetheless, they were good. Service was good and they were very busy.
Limp chips and greasy fish
Ordered fish and chips for takeout. Asked for two additional pieces of fish to accompany the order along with extra tarter sauce. My spouse ordered the calamari. Hostess confirmed order to me. It was disappointing- fish was soggy and greasy, no crunch when biting into it. Fries were limp and greasy too. What we received was the order of fish and chips with with three fish pieces - but no extra tartar sauce. Received a second order of fish and chips with 5 pieces of fish but no fries. Calamari was just OK, nothing exciting here. Bill exceeded $50 bucks. I won’t return.
