Amazing fish and chips

Be sure to check out this place while you are in the Fisherman's Wharf. I've had some of the best fish and chips at The Codmother, and I would go back to the area just to have it again!

They have just moved around the corner to a new food truck. Go early because once she sells out she is done for the day. Fish and chips are cooked to perfection, nice portion size and not at all greasy! Enjoy them at the picnic tables provided.

I love The Codmother! I've been coming to eat here since it opened in 2011. I know the owner, Susan, she's such a great lady. This place has the best food on the wharf for a good price. If you have fish and chips in the seafood restaurants, you are not eating true fish and chips. Susan has created some... More

This is a food truck with a small eating area/patio. Birds make a bit of a mess of the eating area and with a water shortage it seems places probably can't clean like other states do. The food was plentiful, fresh and hot. I particularly liked the use of cilantro on the fish tacos I ordered. Staff was super friendly... More

The batter they use for their fish was very good. My son also added on shrimp and it was good as well. Prices were very reasonable and servings were generous. I had read reviews before our trip, but somehow missed that it is a food truck/trailer. I was looking for a full restaurant, but don't let that deter you from... More

Just a block up from Fishetmans Warf, this food truck worth the visit. My husband and I tried both the fish and chips as well as the shrimp and chips. Both were really good! It's exactly what you want to eat when on the coast.

We stuck with the classic and they were a hit with the whole family. The staff is so friendly. Outdoor seating is limited, but saw that they are opening a second spot just around the corner. The fish is screamin' hot, so give it a moment.

I read reviews of this stand when planning our weekend in San Francisco. Turns out it was located pretty much around the corner from our Hotel (Holiday Inn), and we were so happy to have tried it ! Friendly staff, grabbed a picnic table and ate the freshest meal all weekend ! Prices were fine, we each did a Jr... More
