Stopped in for drinks, around 8:30pm... Neat place, smelled like a good fish-fry joint. Plenty of local brews on-tap. Sign me up, right? Well, after having a drink and looking around the pier a bit to explore, we went back inside to get some food and the kitchen was closed... on a Thursday night, around 9pm... I guess we were...

Stopped in after walking around the wharf area. Figured on typical tourist prices. Bucket of beers was fairly priced. Fish and chips and fish tacos were good but rather pricey. Good band playing upstairs. Was worth the experience and would go back and hang out again. Next time would stick to appetizers.

We happen to be in the area and came across this place. The fish and chips were one of the best in a long time. A lot happening along the windows so it was pleasant to see crowds and enjoy a good lunch. Prices were reasonable for the location. Service was good as it was lunch time and they were... More

As we all know every restuarant on the wharf sells chowder. I tried a handful but loved Lou's the best. Nice and creamy and full of flavour. Me and my wife visited Lou's three times. We only went at happy hour. Good price beers and bar snacks. The staff were friendly. I found at some other restuarants on the wharf... More

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.
