Its been several years since i was here and not much has changed. The view is still spectacular, one of the best in the city. The food is only ok. I had the calamari appetizer, which was bland and had too much breading. Being crab season, i decided on the crab Louis for lunch. This dish too was bland though... More

Have had their burgers. Nice view of Ocean Beach. Service is good, food just OK. Can't comment about the beer as I don't drink. But the bar was busy. Would go again - but mainly for the view.

While I can't say this was the best meal I've ever had….I can say it's a spectacular view and the service was extremely friendly. The food was good mind you but not out of this world. I would go back for sure if we were in the area. The young adults liked it too which was nice - ages 13-24.... More

Food was good. Views were excellent - across the beach and open sea. Order single beers - not the 8x4 fluid oz taster set. (gets warm too quickly). Very nice crab cake

What a good find. You go to Golden Gate Park and then take the Judah trolly to the end at Ocean Beach. Walk about 10 minutes and then you are there. Nice views and a nice place for lunch. Do go there not touristy and reasonable prices. A great California find.

We stopped in to the Beach Chalet after walking around SF neighborhoods. It was raining and we had a great view of the ocean from our table. The restaurant is in a historic building and has things to see regarding the history of that and the area. I really wanted fish but what I wanted was not local so I... More

We went to this restaurant without knowing anything about it, just because after a good walk on the beach we felt like having a bite. That seemed like the best location, in a park, but so close to the ocean. Well, it depends on your luck. The restaurant upstairs, which probably has the best views, had a waiting time of... More

The view alone is priceless! We arrived at 5:00 pm and watch the sunset from our table at the window. We could see people at the beach, bonfires, the breaking wave, and tankers heading off to the Orient. Service was somewhat slow, but we didn't care as we spent hours catching up and enjoying the views. My Margarita was tasteless,... More

Four adults had dinner at the beach chalet. The view is spectacular! The food was very bad for all of us. I would suggest going to the building as it is very interesting from a historical perspective. There is a mural downstairs and model of golden gate park. They are worth a visit. Go upstairs and have a drink but... More

Located on the edge of Golden Gate Park this extraordinary arts and crafts like building has a first floor, British terminology, overlooking the Pacific breakers crashing on the huge sandy beach. The good selection of brewed on the premises beers is complemented by a solid looking wine list. I enjoyed the ubiquitous clam colder and baby ribs but was really... More
