I recently had dinner here with a family member who was visiting from out of town. We wanted to have dinner and take in the sunset. The Beach Chalet itself is an old beautiful building which is quite impressive. When we arrived we were quickly seated by the seating host. There were plenty of available tables and lots of staff...

We had dinner here with friends of ours who live in SF and they say it's one of their favourite places to eat out. The food and service was great, our waiter was especially attentive and friendly. What's really stunning though is of course the magnificent view. You can oversee a large part of the beach and the sea, so... More

My first Ciopinno dish aam francisco and the fish was truly delicious. The view of the ocean was also stunning on a very warm day in July. Service was excellent and our food came out piping hot. Will definitely eat there again. Great venue opposite the beach.

We arrived without a reservation and were seated quickly - the window tables were all RSVPed so we sat across from the view. And it a wonderful view even from across the way. Sarah was a friendly and efficient waitress. Our food was brought quickly to the table and was very tasty.

Arrived at 7:00 PM for my scheduled reservation, confirmed by phone with the restaurant at 7:30 PM. was told to wait to be seated by 8:00 PM. Come back and check with hostess. Came back at 7:55 and table was still not available. Was told then that they had overbook resulting in the waiting time.

Ocean Beach is beautiful. This place was recommended to us by a local person on the bus and we thank him! Three of us had different meals-seafood linguine, veggie bocatelli, and fish and chips. All fresh and delicious. Beautiful views. Quick service. I am a beer snob and the beer was pretty darn good as well. Thanks!

Lunch with hubby - went on recommendation from a friend. Lucked out on both a prime parking space and window table. Beer was cold and tasty - food hit the spot - arancini app was good - as was my crab cake - thought hubby's fish and chips was so-so.

I rank the food average but the view is excellent if you can get a window table. The building is an important landmark and you can read its history in the room below the restaurant. A nice place to lunch on a sunny day at the beach.

Only had to wait 5 minutes for a window seat for 4 at noon on Saturday. When we left if was a much longer wait. Great view of the beach and the ships coming into SF Harbor. I had an oyster stout beer which I think is brewed on premises. Pretty good for $5. Friend had a house Bloody Mary....$11.50!... More
