As good as London

This place fills up fast and the wait can be long so go early. The fish and chips are very, very good. I was in London for 18 months and this F&C is as good as what I could get over there, without the printers ink. You can speed up the order if you stick with plain old fish and... read more

Had high expectations after seeing the busy seating area and queue to order but we were underwhelmed. It all seemed a little too oily. Batter was light and fish was fresh and it's obviously popular so maybe it was our fault for having high expectations

Authentic and tasty and the price is right for the middle of Fisherman's wharf. I had to feed the whole family so price and flavor were important.

Went there and got the fully loaded chips and a large piece of cod. It was amazing. Fries were different but in a good way and the fish and the batter was perfectly cooked!! All the employee's were nice. Would definitely recommended this to anyone in the Bay area.

With great expectations, we ordered Fish and Chips at Codmother. The fish would have been perfect but a bit too greasy - maybe oil temp was too low? Fries were horrible. Over cooked and way too greasy. I will go back at least one more time to try their fish tacos.

We went on my mum and dads recommendation who went 3 times in 5 days, and it did not disappoint! The English lady running the show was welcoming and loved to see English customers, the batter is delicious! Definitely recommend!

We had delicious fish and chips at the Codmother. The batter was light and crunchy and the fish was firm and flaky. The staff were friendly too.

I seriously have never like fish and chips. Batter fish alway made me sick and ache in the stomach. This is the best place to get delicious fish and chips. We tried an expensive fish&chips later in the trip...nope-this was the best. Get it to go and tour through the town or sit on the beach.
