Good place to eat...

Always a tough choice of "where should we eat?" When we saw how crowded the restaurant was we knew the service and food must be good. And it was. We had fish and chips, fried prawns and grilled red snapper. We received our food quickly and it was very good. The price was very reasonable also.

The staff was very nice and courteous and attentive. The clam chowder was good, though a little spicy for me. The fish and chips were hot and crispy, just like I like it!

Beautiful on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The Crabcake Sandwich was outstanding as was the RED SNAPPER (not Cod) Fish and Chip. Nothing beats a nice Sunday afternoon at Fisherman's Wharf topped off with good FRIED food and equally good service. Thanks ...

We had lunch here. It is on the pricey side (like everything at Fisherman's Wharf) but we really enjoyed our food. Excellent fish tacos. Service was prompt and attentive.

We went to lou's with two couples we met in San Francisco that day. We had a fabulous dinner and the lady's had great cocktails, which are now called Mosquitos not mojito anymore. After some good banter with our server. We had the bread chowder which was excellent. The mains were also good. Overall another good place to go!!

Stopped at Lou's after a fun and busy day exploring the city and Alcatraz. The servers all wear the name tag of Lou and that's all it took to break the ice with Cherrish as my husband kept calling her Lou. She recognized our logo sweatshirts and made small talk about our home town. She took our order, brought our... More

Loved the fish tacos. The bloody mary was delicious. Husband had the fish and chips. It would easily feed two. Very good.
