Bettering Seafood Sustainability and the Carlsbad Community

When we came up with the idea for Grubby’s Poke and Fish Market, our goal was to be more than just another generic restaurant in Carlsbad. We wanted to create a sustainably-conscious organization that works to give back to the community. We were born and raised in North County, and a requirement of any restaurant that carries the Grubby’s name is that it gives back to the local community and makes its a better place. That is why we are incredibly involved in the community and celebrate sustainable, local food.

Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market features fresh, local fish caught here in North County San Diego. We have partnered with Atlantic Sapphire, a local fishery in Oceanside that only offers fish that is free of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. Atlantic Sapphire also utilizes windmills to generate electricity on their farm, making it a sustainable, environmentally friendly and healthy choice for fresh fish.

We Support Other Local North County Restaurants

We think of the local community as all part of one big family. Being overly competitive with other businesses creates an unhealthy ecosystem in the neighborhood that can be hazardous. We want all businesses to thrive! Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market supports other local North County businesses, collaborating with them to give our customers the best possible products! Reach out if your restaurant, bar or brewery is interested in collaborating with us.

We Host Charity Events to Raise Money for Local Non-Profits

If you check the Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market Events page, you are sure to see a handful of local charity events hosted at our Carlsbad location in the near future. We partner with local charities to raise money for local causes and organizations, including youth sports leagues, schools, food drives, medical expenses and more. Join us and give back at the next charity fundraiser at Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market.

We Provide Healthy Food for the Whole Family

We try to offer a healthy alternative for a family looking to go out to eat. Fish is a great and healthy option, full of essential nutrients and vitamins. We also have our own water filtration system on site, called Eco-water, providing alkaline water free of toxins and debris. The soda that we offer on-site features pure cane sugar only, avoiding the artificial sweeteners of other sodas that is proving to be quite unhealthy.

See What You Eat With Our Open Kitchen Concept

Nothing is hidden here. Our open kitchen concept means you see us preparing your meal from preparation to completion. We have a pristine kitchen and only use quality ingredients, and we make sure all of this is on full display to our customers.

We feel it is the responsibility of each individual to try to leave the world a better place than when they entered it. At Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market, we take that to heart by offering healthy and sustainable food for the whole family. By also giving back to the community and supporting local businesses, we feel we are doing our part to help make North County thrive! Come by and see the difference today.
