Not Happy This Time

Have been here a few times with special friends for a special place to enjoy dinner and a magnificent view. Was always happy until most recent visit. Normally I would give a higher rating. Good food, etc. But...the servers (we had one in training) turned all their attention to a complainer next... read more

Very over priced for the quality of food and service. Four of us eat an early dinner and only two alcohol drinks were ordered. Two fish and chip, ( one plate actually got only 6 French fries, the other had 8, and they are the small fast food style fry's), another ordered the vegie Gnocchi with no mushrooms. Again very...

Visited here on the recommendation of the California Tourist office on Pier 39 in San Francisco. We ate on the patio downstairs. The food was good, the service was somewhat slow, but...the restrooms! My husband couldn't even use the men's room. There were two homeless men in there arguing. By the end of the evening, the women's room reeked! The... More

This is one of those places that if you can stop you should. You eat over breathtaking views of the Ocean which make it a must do in its own. The coffee is amazing and fresh brewed/ground right there and their breakfast is a five star resturant quality and not quite a five star price. I enjoyed their eggs, bacon,... More

We stopped at the Beach Chalet because it was time to eat and it was located close to where we were staying. We knew nothing about it. It turned out to be a very nice surprise, with its great view of the beach, good beer and solid creatively prepared dishes. The place has that summery beachy feeling and is casual... More

Called in at the end of a hot Sunday in June for a coffee, purchased from the shop. I understand it was hot, no air con and the server probably wanted to go home, but she avoided eye contact, took our money without comment and certainly did not wish us "have a good day". Final insult, the coffee was undrinkable,... More

Location is fantastic right on the edge of Golden Gate park at the ocean. Close to the Cliff house. that is the best part. Limited menu, over priced, felt like a tourist trap, The menu indicated a better fare than reality. My guest had to send one of her dishes back and didn't ask for a replacement. Best part of...

I have been bringing family and friends to the Beach Chalet Restaurant for over ten years. In the past I have been very satisfied with the food and service. This last Saturday our family group of 7 was headed to San Francisco for the day. We decided to eat lunch at the Beach Chalet, and phoned 45 minutes in advance... More

Great views of the Beach and decent brunch options. Service is good until it gets crowded. There were four of us and we got there when they opened. Luckily we had a reservation so we got to sit by the windows. I would come back.
