The Codfish Fish and Chips

This restaurant is tucked away off of a side street. You get 2 large pieces of cod fish and fries, enough for 2 people. The fish was very good and you couldn't beat the price. Highly recommend this place. Staff was very friendly and very helpful.

Ordered fish and chips after the tour bus guide said it was a must visit place. We split one order which was two large pieces of fish and lots of fries. Well worth the 23 minute wait for fish and at a price WAY better than anything on the Warf. Get the fried Oreos and you will be full for... More

This place is awesome and a must-do for anyone visiting the Warf area. We chose The Codmother based upon a recommendation from our hotel’s front desk staff (it was also mentioned by our City Sightseeing tour guide, Sheldon). We ordered the Baja Fish Tacos, an order of Baja Fries, and a bottle of water; the order (with tip) came to... More

I have to say I was a bit skeptical at first, being it was in a truck but, after hearing everyone speak about the food I decided to try it. It was sooo good and well worth the wait in line, The staff were very friendly which made the wait tolerable...This is a must for fish and chips...P.S the lady... More

We went to Cod Mothers this past weekend. Weather was great in SF so we decided to sit and eat. Luckily we found a table. Waited in line for 20 mins and ordered the food. Was told upon ordering that wait time would be 20-25mins. Got the food 40mins later. Food was good. Fish was fresh. Would go again but... More

Very good fish tacos! The sauce is amazing and the friend Oreos are the best I've ever had! They are definitely not good for you 😉 This is a must stop by place! Get there early they get crowded fast- for good reason too 👍

Be patient. The wait is wait is worth it. We had the fish tacos and an order of fish & chips. The food is excellent.

So many people talked about the place that it raised my expectations a lot. It's not that good though. Reasonable price, kinda friendly staff. Not a cozy place, and that doesn't matter to much anyway. If you don't like fried stuff with TONS of fat of have a weak stomach, just stay way. Otherwise, it's a decent place for a... More

This is a great fish and chips joint. They serve shrimp and chips, and also will put a variety of different flavors on your chips if you ask them to, but with an additional charge. Lines can get long, so get there a little before lunch to order your food and also be able to find a table to eat.... More

Really reasonably priced and an extremely generous serving of fish and chips! However, the best thing about our experience were the awesome staff who were energetic and friendly - it really bought everything to like for us!
