Great Lunch Stop

We just happened upon this spot in the late afternoon -- I had a lobster roll (3 oz.) and my friend a softshell crab blt - we finished every morsel. The french fries were thin and crispy, just the way I like them!

Great service- arrived without a reservation and were promptly seated - which was more luck than anything else as it was busy. Shared two entrees with my party of 4 which was adequate. The fish not chips was good value however I found the batter a little thick for my palate but that it is a personal preference being used... More

This was our last night and i love seafood. We went here as it is on Fillmore, close to our rental. I craved the Lobster roll but oddly that was the item we ordered I liked the least. We loved the staff...down to earth, helpful and laid back normal. We ordered Asparagus, Crab cakes and the Lobster. The asparagus was... More

First of all, you have to know that the restaurant is very small and very popular. When you arrive you write your name on the blackboard or ask for it and you wait. Waiting is part of the game and you will have time to see dishes. I don't want to speak about the Cioppino! It makes my mouth water.... More

My family is constantly on some food quest. In the past, we have looked for the best burger (from the perspective of burger, bun and cheese...not a gourmet burger, per se). Our most recent quest has been to find the best lobster roll in the area. Woodhouse doesn't disappoint. Quality roll with your choice of mayo or naked. Excellent french... More

Went there from a friends recommendation. Small but very cool place more of a lunch place than a evening out place. I highly recommend it and city prices are very reasonable.

We found this restaurant because it was on the way to the airport, well, sort of. First time, I had the flakiest and lightest fish and chips. The fish was so good. It was so light, the crust was like air. The second time we went, I had the crab salad and I couldn't find the lettuce. The crab was... More

The normal schedule for my quick day trips to San Francisco usually include lunch at the Wharf, consisting of a whole Dungeness crab freshly steamed and a couple Budweisers. This trip I was determined to try something new. I had read the reviews and received personal recommendations that steered me to Woodhouse Fish Co. On the airplane from Houston I... More

Everytime I go to the West Coast - my first goal is to find a Fish and Chips restaurant! We walked all the way from Union Square on Market Street which took 40 mins.. and might not be up everyones alley. The restaurant is in Gastown as they call it - on the corner in an adorable building. Seating is... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
