Went to BFF Co. wanting fresh fish an we weren’t disappointed. Though located in a strip mall it suited our wants and at a fair price. My wife really enjoyed her fish tacos and I had a blackened grouper sandwich that was heavenly.- fresh fish seasoned just right served on a wonderfully fresh bun. The 2 and 3 piece platters that diners around us had also looked very good and comments were all positive. Really the only negative was the birds outside (and inside) the restaurant that are not bashful about taking a dive at you. Cover up!

We decided to try Bear Flag Fish Co. after reading reviews here on TripAdvisor. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. Although the restaurant is in a shopping center, it is a little off the beaten path so it doesn't seem that a lot of tourist visit. If you are in the area, find Bear Flag Fish Co. and give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

We stopped here after looking at several other restaurant menus in the mall. We ordered the fish plate (we got to choose 2 sides) and a fish burrito thinking, due to the price, that they would be pretty small portions. The fish plate (we ordered the salmon) was as large as the plate! The salmon was the size of a deck of cards and it was delicious as were the vegetables. I love this place and can't wait to go back.

This place is a hidden gem. There is a great selection of healthy fish platters, as well as their yummy panko grilled fish tacos. Lines can be long during lunch time. If I have a big order, I often call ahead. Their Tommy sauce is awesome on the taco. They have sushi and bar with wine and beer too.

We were told by several locals that this was the best place for seafood. When you walk in, to the left there was takeout fish, and to the right was a sushi bar and order area. They have beer and wine, and a highly flexible menu. Eating Gluten Free was not a problem, and the counter staff helped me navigate the menu. After ordering and paying, you get a number, and find yourself a varnished table. We sat outside for dinner, and both times we were there, chatted with friendly regulars. The Ahi burrito was fabulous, as was the seafood plate. And we saw their swordfish boat come in from the Pacific. Don't miss this place, you'll go back again and again!
