We visited this restaurant three weeks ago. Its a very small unassuming restaurant with tight seating. The girls behind the counter are very friendly, very pleasant. Coming from Massachusetts, we are very picky about our fish & chips. The fish was delicious, reasonably priced and big enough to share. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

This is a small trailer restaurant located near Fisherman's Wharf. Seating is very limited but it seemed there was quick turnover. We decided to get our food to go and eat at a public sitting area a few blocks away. When we got there, there was a line of people. They cook the food made to order. So there is... More

Tried Codmother Fish and Chips our last trip to San Francisco. We loved it! It is a trailer with outdoor seating. There isn't a lot of seating, but everyone seems to eat and move on to free up space. They cook the fish fresh so you will have to wait for your order, but for us it was worth it.... More

It's cheap and the pieces of fish are HUGE! The service there is super friendly and gives it that personal touch. There's not a lot of room to sit and eat so if it's busy, expect to take your food elsewhere to scarf done. Then start walking to burn off those calories!

We went Saturday and got there around 12noon. I would suggest that time. By the time we left at 1PM, there was a half hour wait to order. Overall, the food is fantastic, we had the traditional fish and chips and they were perfect. Also tried the Baja tacos and the sauce is spicy and wonderful. Big pieces of fish... More

Food truck! But another one of those permanent food trucks with an eating area. Clean, fast, cheap, great food. Pro tip - get the fish & chips. Duh.

Was recommended by tour guide to try this place. Tried two times to go there, but both times they were closed. They close early some days. Third time was a charm. Fish was fresh and tasty. Had the fried ores also. Oreos were a bit soggy...but the fish and chips made up for it. Seating can be tough at times.

The best fish and chips / fish tacos I have had for a long time - huge portion and delicious. The deep fried oreos were delicious - batter tasty and the biscuit still kept its shape.

If you are looking for fish & chips this is the place! Just like you get at the best stands in the UK including the newspaper wrapping for take away. Crispy, fresh and tasty with malt vinegar and salt or tarter sauce. Seating is outdoors at picnic tables just off Jones Street. Service can be a little slow right at... More

As an Englishman I'd have to say that I was a little doubtful of all the positive reviews that The Codmother had on Tripadvisor; after all how could they possibly be better here than in the spiritual home of fish and chips? Well I can honestly say that in my opinion the fish and chips at The Codmother were better... More
