Being seafood lovers, we decided to try a little bit of everything. We started with the shrimp ceviche. It was good, but the cilantro and onion were a little overpowering. Next we tried two of the house specialties--the mussels over fries and the lobster roll. The mussels were delicious, but it was a little difficult for the kids to build a bite that got all the flavors together and the broth made the fries a little soggy. My husband had the lobster roll and he thought the flavor was great--it had a nice, creamy texture, the roll was delicious, and the lobster was perfectly cooked.The standout dish for us was the grilled tilapia--it was AMAZING. Seriously, it was second only to the fresh grilled fish we've experienced in Portugal, which is a huge compliment. It was fresh, perfectly cooked, with a straight-forward flavor--not masked by breading, seasonings, or sauces. Just what I was craving!Overall, all of the seafood was prepared perfectly and the value was outstanding. We would definitely come again!

Premier seafood restaurant serving Artesia.
My family considers Great Seafood Harbor Restaurant (formerly Great Seafood House) to be our regular dim sum restaurant due mainly to location. While we love having dim sum at NBC Seafood in the San Gabriel Valley and Ocean Seafood in Chinatown, they require tedious drives in terrible L.A. traffic so we only go to those places when we are visiting relatives or happen to be in the area. For great quality dim sum, excellent prices and close proximity to home (Long Beach/Seal Beach) make no mistake: the dim sum at Great Seafood Harbor in Cypress/Cerritos is the real deal, not the fake dim sum that you will find at Phony Food Chang's. The authentic experience at GSH comes with a multitude of cultural idiosyncrasies in terms of service, decor, language and food that may be bewildering for first time dim summers. GSH is located near the southwest corner of 183rd Street and Pioneer Blvd., just north of the East Indian district of Cerritos. The inside is large and open with lots of typical traditional Chinese accoutrements like Buddhi, sage statues, red and gold trim, fancy chandeliers and votive displays. The restaurant is well worn and overall not the cleanest by any means which is very typical of any and all popular LA/OC dim sum restaurants (or in any city for that matter). Does this stop people from coming?? Absolutely not as GSH is packed every day during lunchtime. It's best to come around 1100am or so, perhaps earlier on Sundays, to ensure a table and the freshest dim sum. Larger group tables have the ubiquitous lazy susan and invariably someone knocks over a cup of tea or glass of water at some point with it. Earlybirds will be swarmed by the steam cart ladies who try to get you to buy a bunch of dim sum items from their cart. They mark your purchases on a ticket that is tallied up at the end. They can get aggressive at times with their scattershot English, but be selective and don't be forced into buying something you're not sure of. Early arrival ensures that you will be eating right away. If you arrive later around noon then it may take some time before the steam carts make their way to your table as is gets very crowded, noisy and wonderfully chaotic with all the waiters, busboys and guests. The dim sum at GSH is excellent, equivalent to the aforementioned Ocean Seafood and NBC Seafood restaurants. For first timers to dim sum it might be a good idea to bring someone along who speaks Cantonese or is at least familiar with the different types of dim sum to help in selecting. If you're on your own, a safe dim sum 101 selection would be pork shu mai dumpling, shrimp har gow dumpling, Chinese broccoli and cha siu bao steamed pork bun(the white ones, although the golden ones are good too. Remember to remove the paper on the bottom before eating!!!!). A pleasantly surprising recent addition to the lunch menu is mayonnaise shrimp with honey glazed walnuts, which is a favorite dish usually reserved for dinner. For dessert ba hung go rice cake. At most dim sum houses like GSH, NBC or Ocean Seafood you will be surprised how much $20 of dim sum will fill you up, which is another plus for the dim sum experience. Dim sum dining is one of those experiences where you try it once and you're hooked. I am a sushi lover also and I can see how sushi would be an acquired taste for some people, but not so with dim sum (at least for most of the dim sum dishes). For those who have never had the pleasure of dim sum dining, do yourself a favor and visit a REAL dim sum house and avoid the horrifying 'Americanized dim sum' restaurants. If your in the coastal area at the LA/OC county border give Great Seafood House a try: great dim sum variety and quality, very reasonable pricing, and chaotic and noisy atmosphere. The culturally exotic environment may be challenging at first, but you'll be coming back to get your monthly dim sum fix.

My wife and I ordered the grilled Mahi-Mahi with a garlic butter sauce for $9.99. There were two other sauce choices. Two sides came with the order. My wife ordered Brown Rice($.50 extra) and grilled Zucchini. I ordered the Sweet Potato Fries ($1.49 extra) and the grilled Zucchini. We both thought the Mahi-Mahi was very good. I thought the sauce was very tasty, but my wife would like to have the fish grilled without the sauce next time. We both liked the grilled Zucchini. I thought the sweet potato fries were pretty good, but the brown rice was just all right. I ordered a glass of Merlot for $3.75. I can't complain considering the price, but I wished they had some better wine choices. They also have a selection of beer. You order at the counter and choose a table indoors or outdoors. The restaurant was too cold inside, so we ate outside. Very good service. Parking can be a problem as there are a lot of little restaurants nearby. We will be back as the prices are unbelievably low for the quality of the food.

One of my favorite poke spots. I always get the Kalihi-Kine. Decent price and decent portion. If you want a little more, get the half pound poke with a side of rice and shell out about $3 more. Get a chocolate chip cookie next door after for dessert. Makes a great pair!

Off the Hook offers social dining focused on a vibrant, chef-driven menu, high-quality ingredients, and a relaxed ambiance that encourages sharing and bringing people together through food & cocktails.
My parents and sister took my friends and I to dinner at this restaurant. What a wonderful experience with excellent service and food. The portions were ample and filling.We started with the friend calamari which was splendid and crispy. My meal opened with a salad, and then I had the salmon with grilled vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. Excellent is an understatement. The rest of our party had a plethora of items that all looked delicious. The next time Iâm in Long Beach Iâll be eating here again. I just loved it! Next time Iâll be bringing the wife and sons.

Chinese cuisine is predictable but some are just better than others. Sam Woo is a consistent provider of authentic Chinese cuisine at reasonable prices. Their fried rice and roast duck will not disappoint as they always come out consistently good and flavorful. Quick, efficient service too.
