Camelot has the distinction of being my childhood fish & chip shop, but I don't think I'm overly biased. The shop is decorated with English memorabilia to set the mood, but it's the fish that makes it worth coming to this tiny cash-only restaurant. We'll seasoned and perfectly battered, it's simply delicious. Chips are very good as well, better by... More

I had enjoyed Camelot's fish and chips so much dining-in that we decided to get a couple orders to go one busy night. The fish and chips are wrapped so tightly in paper that by the time I got home to Linda Mar everything had congealed into one big blob. When I tried to unwrap it even the batter peeled... More

That batter is light, crisp, refreshing and tasty, not like the overly-thick, doughy stuff other places serve. The fish inside is just plain juicy, lively and fulfilling. The potato chips are just right. The food comes out piping hot and not half-warmed and half-forgotten. The service is sharp if minimalistic. The price is right. My fish and chips and Guinness...

Great snack or meal after enjoying coastal drive in hway1 from San Francisco to Pacifica. They finally have a regular schedule so it is easier to drop by and grab a table (small place) and usually fill-up during dinner time. They use pollock in light batter and malt vinegar and the rootbeer is served with cold glass. Suggest calling in... More

Well done fish and chips...cooked to order and very hot. Be warned this is a cash only business...ATM just outside if you need it. No ice in the drinks but served in chilled glasses. canned cokes, beer and wine choices. Overall good food and service.

Served up English pub style, great food fun place. We had the Fish and chips with hush puppies and you have to try the root beer it's truly the best

My girlfriends family is from Scotland, they love great fish and chips. They really enjoy eating here, so do their kids. Once I tried it, I became hooked also. I highly recommend Camelot.

Don't get me wrong, I love this place! The fish and chips are better than average, but not as good as I would expect from a place that succeeds so well in looking like an authentic British Pub. Personally, I think they could improve the batter and make the fish more crispy. I felt I had better at Barbara's fish... More

My third time there was about a year ago to check if this place had improved over our first time. It had not really. The first time my wife and I went here it was nearly empty and we should have taken the hint. It smelled greasy and the fish, while plentiful, thick and juicy and good was surrounded by... More

Camelot is the go-to place for Fish and Chips, not just for those who live in Pacifica but some in San Francisco as well. I called early (4:30 pm) on a Friday to beat the dinner rush for a take-home meal, but I was still told the two dinners would be ready in 25 minutes. Not a long wait since... More
