Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market is Relocating!

Lately, we’ve been feeling like a whale in a fishbowl— our ambitions have outgrown our location size. That’s why we decided to move Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market to a bigger, better location. But don’t worry—we’re not going far, just down a few spots in the same shopping center, The Shoppes at Carlsbad. Here’s what else you need to know about the move:

Why we’re moving

The primary reason for the move is to bring more delicious poke and fish to the masses! A bigger space means more indoor seating, plus a dining patio and a bigger fish market to offer a wider variety of fresh seafood. Our new location, between Panera and Luna Grill, also has much better visibility—as our previous spot was hidden behind construction and made discovery difficult for shoppers passing by. The Shoppes at Carlsbad knows we’re a brand worthy of prominence, and now we’ll be impossible to miss.

Perks of a new location

Along with giving us tons more foot traffic and making us more visible, Grubby’s Poke’s new spot will finally allow us to build the fish market of our dreams—and we’re not leaving our dining menu out of the excitement. In addition to our extensive selection of famous poke bowls, we will be offering boba milk tea, plus beer and kombucha on tap. And if you’re wondering what will become of our previous location at Shoppes at Carlsbad, it will be transformed into another beloved brand: Sephora!

Relocation countdown

Grubby’s existing location is closed while we move and remodel our new space, and we’re hoping to celebrate our grand re-opening in the first week of December. To track our progress and score some sneak peeks into the new space, check us out on Instagram at @Grubbys_Poke.

The best things in life are worth the wait

While you wait for our grand re-opening, get a head start on deciding your first meal at the new place by perusing our menu online. In addition to our delicious, creative Signature Bowls, you can build a customized poke bowl with your choice of protein, sauces, toppings, and a base (rice, noodles, greens, and yes, tortilla chips to make poke nachos). 

Or you can search for recipes to spotlight the fresh fish available at our newer, bigger fish market. Sold by the pound or whole (with advance notice), our fresh fish is always high-quality sushi grade, caught by sustainable means when possible. With so much great fish available at a great price, our new market and restaurant will definitely be worth the wait.
