RE: Secret Seafood Joint
Hi, Doatsie from San Diego county here. I have attached more information about the resturant pathend is talking about. I got it off of our local website signonsandiego.com.
The Tin Fish
910 Seacoast Drive (at the end of the pier); (619) 628-8414.
No visit to Imperial Beach is complete without a walk along the pier and, lucky for you, there's a great eatery at the pier's end. You'll often find owner Joseph Melluso taking orders at the self-service window. The casual eatery has seating inside (on stools) and several tables with umbrellas outside. On weekends, usually between noon and 2 p.m., Coconut Joe entertains with island classics on his acoustic guitar.
Melluso, a proud Italian fishmonger, began working at age 11 at a seafood restaurant on Long Island. That's where he acquired the secret, slightly spicy breading recipe that has made his fish and chips, fried calamari, shrimp, scallops, oysters and crab cakes famous. Fried platters, accompanied with cole slaw, french fries, and cocktail and tartar sauce, range from $4.95 to $12.95.
Melluso credits his partner, Roberta Hepburn, who also manages the Tin Fish in the Gaslamp, as the driving force behind the eateries, where you will also find grilled swordfish, halibut, salmon, shrimp, North Atlantic cod and spicy calamari tacos ($2.75 to $3.95).
