“Amazing, Affordable Fish sandwich big enough for two on the Pier.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Saw the reviews, and had to stop here our last stroll on Fisherman's Wharf. The Fish sandwich is big enough for 2 people and only $8.00. The sandwich is covered in yummy coleslaw too. There is a little outside seating area adjacent to Sally's were we ate, listened to a street performer play his guitar, and people watched. Best deal on the whole trip!

“Hankering for Fish? This is the place..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Searched for the best fish served al fresco (outside sitting) near the pier (where the ships go to Alcatraz). Came up with Sally's and was pleasantly surprised. Recommend the Fish and Chips but only order the cole slaw as a side if you want a burning sensation on your tongue. Way over done with the vinegar and jalo's. I am lucky I did not order the fish sandwich because that was loaded with the coleslaw. I may be a white polish guy who cannot take spice but this was way over the top but in the end the fish is the star and hands down this a worthy a repeat visit. I guess I know now why the 3 escapees from Alcatraz had to make the swim.

“Great choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

It's basically a huge sandwich with fish and coleslaw right on it. Not just regular coleslaw but a hot pickled pepper kind. It tastes amazing! The halfwich is just the same as the big one but with one piece of fish and not two. So it's not much smaller.

“Darn Good Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Sally's is a walk-up fast food fish diner at Fisherman's Wharf. The fish and chips is just fantastic. They fry it while you wait and you get a large slab of white fish, sizzling hot, along with a paper tray full of fresh fried fries for $8. Everything is wonderfully greasy and dripping with flavor. We NEVER eat fried anything, but it smelled so good we just had to try some. Well worth the clogged arteries for a few hours ! You can sit outside at one of their picnic tables if you don't mind the pigeons, or sit inside and shelter yourself from the waterfront wind.
