Great food but no air conditioning

The beach chalet is a great restaurant. Great food great service and great views. They have their own brewery and the make alcoholic beverages for adults and they have there own root beer for kids. They do not have air conditioning so it is hot it that doesn't matter because the food is great.

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.

A Bloody Mary and crab cakes benedict with an ocean view was the perfect way to start the first day of my California vacation. It was early and there were only a few other customers in the restaurant. Serive was excellent. The murals on the lower level and in the stairwell were a great link to the past.

I have dined here a couple of times during various visits to SF. While there isn't much choice for a vegetarian, the homemade veggie burger was delicious. Their selection of house brews is wide and varies somewhat seasonally. If you can't decide you can get a sampler of 4oz of each house brew. They even have home brewed root beer.... More

Always goto this restaurant when in the City. Cheaper than the Cliff House. Very good food and service with lots of ocean side window tables with ocean views. The building was erected during the 1930's with amazing murals of the people and sites of the City during that era. There is another restaurant downstairs with top notch food but only... More

We spent the day in Golden Gate Park, taking the path from the art museum to the beach. It was several miles and very scenic. Our destination was the Beach Chalet Brewery. The restaurant is on the second level. We were fortunate to get a table by the windows and we had an unobstructed view of the ocean and beach.... More

We ate here on a Monday evening which is special steak night, great value and lovely food. The staff are super friendly here. The only thing I would say that was slightly annoying was that they didn't have wifi which did cause us a problem getting a taxi back. would highly recommend this place though, but don't be relying on...
