We visited San Francisco with our two teenage daughter and looked for a fish restaurant. By chance we ended up at Woodhouse Fish Company on Market Street and what a great surprise. It is a small but cozy restaurant. We managed to get a table right away. We ordered different dishes including one of the specials and they were all... More

OK just left. Wait person did not tell us of the specials, yet the people around us got the full list. Ordered the drinks, brought the wrong thing The clam rolls were totally over cooked and the crab linguini was completely uninspired. seventy nine bucks is much too expensive for what was delivered to our table. with this said, the...

Went to this place after seeing it from the street car heading towards Castro, my instincts are usually correct. What a fabulous little casual restaurant. Last night we went to Pacific Catch, highest seafood restaurant on trip advisor, which was ok and definitely nothing special. However Woodhouse Fish and co was excellent, the clam chowder was yummy, sweet and fresh... More

Simply everything was fantastic here - service, atmosphere and most of all the food. I had the Grilled Artichoke with bay shrimp and Dungeness crab - OMG!! I think it was the best food I have ever had!! The New England Clam Chowder was too die for! All with a cold Anchor Steam - O-O-OMG!

If you are looking for a lunch type menu (tuna melts, crab rolls etc.) you'll do just fine here. Nothing extraordinary but nothing bad either. Only disappointment was the MacDonald's type fries -- skinny and obviously frozen.

I actually was turned on to this restaurant by "Check Please - Bay Area", and decided to take some out of town relatives for a meal. The relatives are from Portland, Oregon, so are accustomed to fresh fish. This was not a disappointment! All 5 of us loved it! Great Fish n Chips, oysters that are very fresh and an... More

Crabs were not in season but still the house was packed. Smallish menu, out of some items, but liked what we ordered. Sat at the counter. Nice time.

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!

Staying in Mission District

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.
