Great Food

Great fish and chips. This is not a formal restaurant. Heck, it's not even a solid structure. The food is served for a mobile trailer that is set on blocks. They've set up some nice seating outside. The food is awesome!

Really enjoyed this restaurant after we finally found it. We didn't realize it was an outdoor restaurant. But our tour bus driver recommended it, so we had to find it. Once there it was great. The owner was talking and laughing with everyone and was so friendly. The fish and chips were to die for. This is definitely a must... More

My husband and I went to San Francisco for a vacation. I had heard of this place called The Codmother and wanted to try it. It is a little truck and has tables, chairs and umbrellas out in front. It is down a little side street from Fisherman's Wharf. It is well worth it. MY husband and I had the... More

There are a lot of places to get fish and chips on the Fisherman's Wharf. After walking past this place I looked at a couple of other restaurants before coming back here. What a great choice! The best fish and chips and shrimp combo that I've ever had! Worth the wait! Fresh, hot, crispy crust that compliments the fish and... More

Delicious. We stopped based on TA's reviews. Had the spicy fish tacos. Spicy and delicious. Also had the fish and shrimp combo with fries covered in their Baja sauce. Excellent.

I went here for a quick and non-expensive fish and chips. VeRY Generous portion, fast and very friendly service. Convenient location when you're in the wharf area.

We searched this food stop out on the recommendations of a colleague from work who used to live on the west coast. This is not one of the fine dining locations in san francisco. It is a trailer servering fish and chips with some outside seating on a side street. Don't let the description put you off. The staff are... More

Don't be fooled by this semi-permanent facade, this stationary food truck by the Wharf will dazzle your senses. The fish and chips are straight out of Europe but my hands-down all time favorite is their Fish Tacos (Don't forget to get them with their homemade spicy sauce). Perfection! That's how I classify these fish tacos and I do eat these... More

Awesome fish and chips! We ordered one combo with shrimp and one regular fish and chips. Fresh and hot. Staff are extremely friendly. Generous servings. I love that it's a little off the beaten path yet still easy to get too.
