This one might come as a surprise. While Malibu Seafood might be known for its delicious fried fish, they have a great menu of healthy choices as well, including fantastic grilled fish dinners, from fresh ahi to seabass. And few places scream 'vacation' louder than its charming, ocean-abutting patio.
