Pasadena might be nowhere near the ocean, but Fishwives is hoping you’ll still be in the mood for seafood. They serve a lot of it - everything from raw bar to hand rolls to fish and chips. The crab and lobster rolls are good, but they don’t pull the rest of the menu off as well - the fish in our fish and chips was undercooked, and the grilled octopus doesn’t taste like much. Head in for a crab roll if you’re in the area, but otherwise, no need to bother.
