Fish Grill

With multiple locations in California, the Fish Grill PCH location in Malibu is one of the best.

The mesquite-grilled specialties like trout and red snapper are popular among seafood lovers.

The quality and freshness of the seafood are exceptional, and the management ensures to take good care of the cleanliness within the restaurant premises, making it one of the perfect restaurants to visit during a global pandemic.
