Great Fish n Chips- but prepare for a wait

Its important to note that this place is a food truck. We waited a good 20 minutes in line and maybe another 10 minutes waiting for a table and our food. The sitting area is smaller and it gets tricky trying to find a place to eat. We overheard the employees saying that they were moving... read more

The fish and chips are delicious. The batter is light and crispy and the fish was light and flaky. The wait for the food was about 45 minutes but well worth it. The staff was cheery and kept thanking the patrons for coming and for our patience.

As we walked by the Codmother we remembered good reviews from TripAdvisor so we decided to stop. So glad we did! Huge portions of delicious fish and chips, and the staff was extremely friendly. Highly recommended!

We first heard about this place by the guide on the city sightseeing bus. He said you'd have to wait in line but it would be worth it - he was right! It was the best fish and chips we'd had in a long time. The fish was beautifully cook with a nice batter. The staff are also very personable... More

A really nice little spot a side street away from the hustle and bustle around pier 39 - well worth the very short walk. Service with a smile, and excellent food - what more could you ask for?

I didn't have fish and chips since I was in London two years ago so you can imagine how happy I was when I saw the sign not too far away from where My hotel was. I had to wait for awhile in line but it was worth it.

If you want freshly cooked fish & chips then this is the place to eat. One of the best fish & chips meals I've ever had - would definitely give the Brits a run for their money - you have to visit if you are in San Francisco - very large portion too!

This is one of the few gems in the high priced restaurant traps of this tourist district. The Fish & Chips are very fresh and are good value.

We got food here on a Sunday evening and there was no wait at all. We had the fish and chips, the shrimp tacos and of course the deep fried oreos. Everything was outstanding. The shrimp was very lightly battered-excellent. I do not normally like fish and chips but the portions of fish were huge and perfectly cooked. And oh,... More

Visited here after reading reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. These are proper English fish and chips!! Staff are lovely, friendly and funny and make you feel so welcome. Whatever you do try the fried Oreos - it shouldn't work but they are amazing!!!
