Halibut Corner Restaurant Review

: Ambience is certainly not the focus at this casual restaurant on the boardwalk of the Redondo Beach pier. But what it lacks in atmosphere it more than makes up for in freshly prepared seafood. Start with oysters on the half-shell, chilled and served with a sharp mignonette, priced individually at less than a dollar each. Ceviche includes a variety of fish, scallops and shrimp, spiked with plenty of lime juice but balanced with wedges of avocado. Several salads and traditional soups, like New England clam chowder, are available, though relatively predictable. For entrées, it’s optimal to focus on fresh fish: grilled halibut has a pure, focused flavor and is topped with a simple sauce of lemon, white wine and capers, while scallops are meaty, pan-seared to medium, and finished with a leeks, bacon and cream sauce. An admirable New York steak comes charbroiled to a fine crust. Classic desserts, such as a banana split, are offered, and there is a small selection of refreshing beers and wines by the glass. The restaurant also hosts brunch, with options like seafood crêpes and Benedicts.
