What do you get when you combine the fresh fish from Malibu Seafood and the retro vibes over at Neptune’s? Reel Inn. The festive shack right at the mouth of Topanga Canyon often gets overlooked for its two competitors, but that’s a mistake. Reel Inn has quality seafood at good prices without all the crowds and hype. The ocean-facing patio never hurt anybody either.
