“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I had read about this food truck/sit down on a food site and it was the only decent place to eat iN Pier 39 that was not a tourist trap.

The british lady behind the counter was very friendly and runs a busy joint, we had to get her assistant to wash the table off as they have a large turnover of patrons that staff don't get to clean after each one.

My spouse and I ordered the fish and shrimp combo and my young children shared a regular fish chip platter that the owner said would be better value then two kids orders, we had 2 of their exotic juices. I would have loved a cold beer but no alcohol on the menu which was fine, i wish i had known about their special sauce they make until after my meal was done as sounded great. It was mayo, cilantro and such seasonings.

$40 for family of four. Not bad value,
Kids said it was the best fish and chips they have ever tried,

My spouse and I were pleased with our meal as it was a lot of fish not just batter, and the batter was crispy not greasy.

There was a lot of pigeons which patrons assisted in scaring off,

Overall a fun little place to have lunch and support a small business
Keep up the good work

“Good food, if you can brave the weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

After reading all the good reviews for this place we decided to make our way there from Pier 39 for lunch. It was a little chilly for eating outside, but the food was really tasty and service was quick considering everything is freshly made. We shared the Baja fish tacos and some crazy fries. The tacos were messy like all good food should be and the fries were good too. The only drawback was the fries were sprinkled with garlic, which was all we could taste for the rest of the day! Overall the food was delicious and we would definately go back if we're in the area again!.

“Fish and Chips!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is going to be pretty short and sweet... This is some of the best, fresh, fish and chips I have ever tasted!! Very good food, perfect portions, and amazing customer service!! The customer service was outstanding, friendly, and very caring about he customers. The fish and chips comes with two large pieces if cod, and a big basket of fries! Soo delicious! Not sure what else I can say, besides this is a must-have stop if you're even remotely close!
