California Fish Grill is crazy about fish… Committed to those who crave, catch, and cook it. Our mission is to provide our fish-loving friends with high quality, scrumptiously healthy seafood, in an enjoyable atmosphere–all at a great price. We love the fact that our passion for fresh, healthy and delicious align perfectly with the daily decisions of our fans. Together, we are liberating the love of seafood.
The ocean is our backyard. It’s part of who we are. At California Fish Grill we believe it should be easy to enjoy healthy, delicious seafood, at a great price, as often as you want. This is precisely what Victor Topete, founder of California Fish Grill, found himself thinking in 1998. Since then, we’ve been grilling and crafting delicious, healthy, seafood favorites for our growing family of loyal guests. Pledged to have respect for the ocean, we promise that our seafood can be enjoyed for years to come by partnering with reputable fisheries that provide only the freshest wild-caught and responsibly farm-raised fish.
You’re among family and friends now. Savor our open kitchen as vegetables and herbs are chopped, fish is hand battered, and meals are cooked on our signature flame grill. Open a bottle of wine and enjoy an appetizer, while we cook and prepare everything by hand. It’s hard work… but for us, it’s worth it.
A new salon called The Grove Salon recently opened in the Orchards shopping center in Walnut Creek at the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Oak Grove Rd.

Thanks to everyone for sending word and photos that San Diego-based Mike Hess Brewing is coming to the Orchards shopping center in Walnut Creek. It turns out that Mike Hess is a Northgate High graduate so I can see how they decided to open in this spot. Check out this Brewbound article for more information on Mike Hess Brewing, check out their beer selection here and find out more about their brewery here.
As the city’s first production nano-brewery – and its 33rd brewery – opening in summer in 2010, Mike Hess Brewing quickly built a solid reputation for great beers and a unique brewery and tasting room experience. After outgrowing Miramar’s production, Mike, his wife Lynda and his brother Greg launched the North Park brewery, welcoming our first visitors in August of 2013 after 18 months of construction. The OB location, located just blocks from Dog Beach, opened in November of 2015.
Our tasting rooms are family and pet friendly, and are staffed by some of the best beertenders in the industry. Whether a beer geek or novice, our friendly staff will make you feel right at home and happily walk you through our lineup of truly hand-crafted, well thought out beers. We offer tasting flights, beer by the glass as well as packaged beer – bottles and cans – or a 32 oz canned “Purrowler” of any draft beer to take beer home with you if you like.
Thanks to a reader for sending word and photo that Pancheros Mexican Grill, which opened late last year in the new Orchards shopping center in Walnut Creek, has closed.
