Was told that the wait would be 20-30 mins and more than an hour later still not seated. Numerous people left and we could have been seated earlier had they been more professional in the management of their restaurant but all the manager could do was apologize for the poor service with no reprieve. I'm not sure that any quality... More

This is a lovely spot for a luxurious lunch, clean & bright decor with a wonderufl laid back atmosphere, the crab sandwich was indredible. Would love to head back.

I had recently seen an episode of the local tv series Check Please Bay Area that had a segment about the restaurant and offered positive reviews. With the start of Dungeness crab season, my wife and I wanted to go out and enjoy this treat, but not deal with the weekend throngs at Fisherman’s Wharf or the Ferry Building in... More

Great lobster rolls, crab rolls, fish and chips, and Dungeness crabs. outstanding onion rings. It's a popular spot and tiny with no bar area, so be prepared to wait. Best suited for parties of two as there is very limited seating for larger groups.

Clam chowder was perfect. Fish and chips so-so (a bit too crispy) but they gave me a discount when I complained.

We went for a date night here as it was recommended. Waitress Lili (?) approached asking "what do you want?" We ordered beer while looked over menu. She seemed annoyed we weren't ready to order food and didn't bring drinks until we ordered food. She never checked in on us to see if food was okay or if needed another... More

This is a very small restaurant and I live in the neighborhood, but have never tried their food. I would definitely come back again. I had the 2 crab cakes for a dinner entree. I probably should have ordered 3 crab cakes, they were very moist and crabby tasting with a spicy mayo drizzle on top. Dressed with a small... More

Don’t eat here. For starters this is a 40 minute bus ride or 15 minute cab ride from Fisherman’s Wharf. We thought it was highly recommended. It is on Market St. but tiny and we missed it twice. The ambiance is 3 steps below NJ style diners. The clam chowder was so thick, we thought they forgot the milk –... More

I have a bunch of Massachusetts to SF emigre friends (I lived in MA for 10 years), and we got to chatting about how we missed really good fried clams and lobster rolls. Woodhouse specifically advertises Ipswich clams, so we went on the spur of the moment. They do have Ipswich clams, and they were fresh and quite good with... More
