Small locals type restaurant. Outside of the tourist district which was great for me as I was driving a crew cab pu with a 10 ft camper. Parked right outside no problem. The place was packed (Friday night) so I ate at the bar. The swordfish was oak grilled with a basil butter. It was as good as I had... More

We found this restaurant near our La Quinta hotel (2 blocks south on Del Monte) and we were SO glad we did! Wow, it was fabulous. Of course we didn't have a reservation, so we sat at the bar. Sam took care of us, explaining all of our choices. Wow! Amazing menu. We enjoyed the oak grilled red snapper and... More

The outside of the building is not inviting, it is in an industrial park area, and parking is limited. In side white table cloths, excellent fresh seafood menu. Food was fresh, well prepared, and very tasty. The telling point was we got in and ate our meal, paid and went out to a waiting crowd as large as the seating... More

Although this restaurant is not located on the Fisher's Wharf, it doesn't stop people from driving here for the great seafood. My girlfriend and I tried Oak Grilled Oysters and Oak Grilled Tuna. They are so good. Even the white bread tastes good. The waiter offered us a special sauce they mixed by themselves, which is a good dip for... More

We ate lunch here based on all of the reviews. The place is small and quaint, that's fine. The staff are quick, efficient and friendly, that was good. But, the food was just not that good. My fish was just ok but the pasta and vegetables that came with it was awful and I love pasta of all kinds, but... More

This resturant was recommended by one of the hotel staff. The resturant was packed on a Tuesday Night, mostly by locals. The seafood was excellent as well as the service. I had curried snapper and my girlfriend had shrimp fra diavolo both good. Reservations are recommended This is a very casual resturant which is crowded and can be loud. It's... More

I really enjoy going to this restaurant. Every time I visit SF, I drive to this restaurant with a high expectation for the high quality seafood. And this restaurant has never disappointed me. And servers are very friendly though one time it took 20 mins to get the check and escape. I guess there were too many people. The only... More

The restaurant had just filmed an episode of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. It was packed but the wait was reasonable. I tried the Sicilian Holiday Pasta, it was loaded with clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp, and big hunks of fish. My wife had Snapper. Dinner was awesome and the price was reasonable. It is busy and for good reason! I... More

I like everything here. I particularly recommend anything from the oakwood grill particularly the oysters. Chowder is good. Crab cakes are pretty good but not my favorite thing here. Still, excellent fresh seafood, a nice laid back fish house setting.
