First off you may be asking ” Why didn’t you go to the Oceanside Harbor Fish and Chips”
One, the Oceanside harbor is in dire need of a remodel upgrade, as our second biggest tourist attraction (next to the pier) it is kind of sad.
As a 5-year-old boy I was at the Carlsbad lagoon feeding ducks and some loons. A squirrel showed up, so I fed him too. Then another one, then another one. Then one decided he was not going to wait for me to throw bread and climbed up my leg and attached himself to me. I freaked. Spinning around trying to throw him off. My parents were too far away to realize what was going on. Eventually I fell to the ground and he scampered off. So that is why I do not go to the harbor.
When you see a squirrel you see this…

Anyway back to fish and chips.
Harbor Fish and Chips has been around since 1981
See the sign says so!
The View can not be beat.
On a sunny day, please.
On to the fish and chips..
Fish and Chips ~ It is Fish and Chips.
Really nicely battered fish, crisp chips, malt vinegar and tartar sauce. What more do you want. I really like the batter. I lived in England for 7 months and this place has my favorite. There are other places that do a lighter tempura style batter which is good and a lot of places that do beer batter (or tout it), Yet this is my go to.
This is Nirvana, sitting at the counter, looking at the ocean, and eating my fish and chips.
Oh, by the way. The squirrel story..totally made up:) I just like this place better. Yes I am an asshole:)
