Nice comforting restaurant and end of park

This establishment is a nice watering hole at the end of golden gate park. Close to Dutch windmill. 2 min walk. Nice view of Pacific Ocean and close to cliff house restaurant if you want something a bit more fancy!!! Mid prices.

Dishonest people and average food. I'm a Canadian and forgot a pair of Oakley sunglasses on vacation. Called them the next day and they aknowledged they had found them. Spoke with the manager, gave him my credit card to pay for shipment. After a few weeks not seeing any charges, called them back to be told they paid for the... More

You definitely can't beat the view but that was the best part. The Caesar salad was simply average as it was swimming in dressing. The salmon on top had barely any flavor! Not the worst meal I've ever had but certainly not the best

In town for work with some friends who have never been to the area. I had to take them for lunch and the amazing view this place provides. As always the food was fantastic as was service! However, the view and location are what brings me back time after time.

Last Saturday evening, after celebrating a family event, a bunch of us went out for dinner to The Beach Chalet. I had made the reservation for 12 people, but two more decided to come along. We got there bang on time at 8pm. They didn't seem to think at first that the additional two seats were a problem, but they... More

We stopped in for the view. Service was a bit slow but the views of the ocean made up for it. They had a good in house brewed ale. My husband likes the fish and chips. I recommend the garlic fries. They serve a good potato gratin I would recommend if in the area.

Great food. Great view. Service terrific. Quite pricey. We stumbled in with no expectations for a place above a park visitor center with s nice view. But it lived up to its ambitions for lunch and cocktails.

I've only known to go to the upper portion of Beach Chalet to have the ocean views while dining. One afternoon, a friend and I decided we will explore the bottom dining/bar. To our surprise, the bottom opens to the park like setting where you can bring your dog or small children. There was live music also. The sun was... More

We headed here to have brunch upstairs and enjoy the view of the ocean, but when we arrived, upstairs was closed until later in the day. That wasn't what their website said, so maybe it's determined on numbers. We went through the doors and into the downstairs dining area which was like a big sunroom I suppose you would call... More

It is a shame that such a beautiful location (ocean view) and such a historic building houses a very disappointing restaurant upstairs. My salad nicoise was the worst I have ever had--was incomplete, olives were soggy and lacked flavor, lettuce was not washed well (contained sand or something gritty) etc. My husband's Reubin sandwich was barely okay. Service was, overall,... More
