Pelly's: Andy it's good but NOT great

On the recommendation of A. Abramson I went to Pelly's in Carlsbad. The seafood market seems to be fresh and the prices are average to say a Point Loma Seafood. My friend and I ordered two grilled fish , the swordfish and Mahi Mahi. Both of them were overdone and dry. The cole slaw was just a very finely shredded cabbage with not much flavor, the clam chowder's clams were a little overdone and rubbery and the spices were a little off, the rice that came with the platter was very ordinary.
If the fish were done properly and not overcooked as well as the clam chowder I would consider it a good find. I can do much better at home though making my own chowder and grilled fish.
The fish is fresh though I will give them that.
