If you like fish and chips this is a good option. Food is fresh but not very healthy - in my tast way too much oil but again thats the concept here.

Best on the wharf! Fresh ingredients, perfect texture of batter, quaint atmosphere, kid-friendly and best of all, great value for your money! The Codmother is worth the visit!

I am a food network junkie and a portion of my trip was to source out restaurants/food trucks recommended by food network celebrities. Sadly I went at the end of business (third last customer of the day). The fish was properly cooked but the batter was badly over salted and greasy. Further, the French fries were dried out (hot and... More

Fish is fresh, batter is light, crispy and tasty and not greasy, the chips are fried to a nice crisp. Love this place for that quick casual fish and chip crave. It's a small place so expect a line during busy hours.

Convenient location near Pier 39, short wait for my order (Fish & Chips) but well worth it. Fresh fish coated in the perfect amount of crispy batter. Chips were also good. Would eat again. 🐟

One of the best meal we ate during our trip in California! The fish & chips were perfect. Fried shrimps were good. It's a food truck with only a few seats and it was crowded when we went. We waited 30 minutes for our meal, but it was worth the wait. The staff was friendly. Go there if you go... More

Don't let the food truck style place fool you. We came here because it had a high rating on trip advisor and we were very happy with our experience!! The food was great and the people working were super friendly!!

I'm not sure if I'm a Fish and Chips expert, but I lived in England for several years and love a good chippy. In the US, it's hard to find any restaurant that can do a good F&C. I finally found such a place in the Codmother. This was the best meal we ate on our three day trip to... More

Hubby really enjoyed the fish n' chips, however I don't like a lot of fish (though tried it and it was pretty good!). I opted for the garlic fries and smelled like garlic for two days! Tasty but strong.

Food was amazing and cheap! Under $10 meals. We had classic fish and chips & shrimp and chips. Good find! Staff were very friendly and the good preparation was quick! Felt lucky to find this place!
