Very ,very greasy thats my overall compliant ,extremely oil soaked fish which I had too blot with tissue paper before eating. The fish inside though was fine ,and fresh ,the chips were good. If Codmother could lighten up the batter ,maybe by adding beer batter ,and increase the oil temperature for a shorter cook time ,then drain really well,I think... More

Ordered the Baja fish tacos and french fries. There is a wait because everything is made fresh. The tacos had a fairly large piece of fish with cabbage on a small tortilla with homemade Baja sauce. Delicious! Also the price point was great.....only $5.95 for two. I also ordered regular french fries and the entire meal was very filling. Can't... More

Probably one of the best fish and chips in SF. Well, the fish is better than the chips (french fries). We got Fish and Chips, Shrimp and Chip, Combo and Chips, and Baja Shrimp Taco. I would rate Fish better than Shrimp, better than Shrimp Taco. Location: One block off the main Fisherman's Wharf sign. Very very accessible for tourists.... More

The fish and chips are nice, but not nice enough for the 45 minute wait. Fries are skin cut home made, and tasty. Cheese and garlic fries were great, but the cheese cooled very quickly, would be better in summer. Fish was very tasty.

The best we have had for a while. The fish was fresh and tasty, authentic home made chips just like the brits make. The line-up was a bit painful bit worth the wait

Awesome fish & chips! Really good stuff. Dun waste yr money on the wharf front. This place is just a lane off the waterside, opposite Walgreens. Sadly couldn't do a return visit this trip. Our taste buds will still craving for the food, whilst touring the central coast.

If you are in for good fish do not walk by here with out stopping, you will not be disappointed. On a nice day the outside seating is perfect and the staff will make you feel like a local.
