The Blue Mermaid had excellent chowder, service, and atmosphere! One of the best places we ate at while in San Francisco.
Lots of places searve crab and chowder, but this place has a list of chowders to choose from. I had a cup of corn and crab chowder. SOOOO good.

My third crab for the day. Not the best but very good. Not cheap; fifty bucks is a lot of dough for a poor pensioner like me. Sat outside in the sun but the sun went faster than I could dissect Mr Crab. Got moved to the only heater that works. Staff were very friendly. The inside is real nice... More
