Sat outside at this "fish shack". Nice environment but steep prices. Radically different amounts of Dungeness crab in the crab bisque. In my case too much bisque, not enough crab. Might be worth another try sometime but a little too greasy and expensive for what it was.

Thought the menu sounded good and reasonable when we walked by. It did not disappoint. The fish tacos were the best I had out of four restaurants in northern CA. My only wish was for grilled vs. breaded & fried fish (I should have requested that). My husband had fish & chips, which he rated as "OK." Staff was friendly... More

What great sea food. Had a tomato based crab and seafood stew. My wife had shrimp. Bothe were great. Nice outdoor seating in the sun and plenty to do to walk off a meal.

With such a selection of restaurants to choose from in Fishermans Wharf, we liked the look of Lou's Fish Shack so took a chance. It proved a good decision as we had a lovely fish lunch consisting of Dungeness crab and red snapper, all of which was tastefully prepared and well presented.

Good seafood, Dungeness crab was excellent and filling. Clam chowder also very good and the parmesan garlic fries were outstanding. Messy but worth it for a casual dining spot in Fisherman's wharf.

The only good thing about this was the friendly host who noticed I was cold and would want to be seated inside. From there it went to hell and was a very quick visit. Our waitress was unfriendly and served my husband a flat warm beer. Unfortunately we had already ordered the calamari appetizer or I would have left right... More

Great clam chowder and seafood pasta! Heard live blues and jazz music. Was very loud but quite enjoyable. Would go to this place again when I am back in San Fran!

Delicious! After being stranded all day in the sun (flat tyre) this place was just what we needed! Great food and delicious (and strong) drinks!
