“Great find on the Wharf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We found Codmother Fish & Chips from a Tripadvisor recommendation and had to make a special trip down to the Wharf to try them out. Im not a fried fish expert but the fish they served here was very good. Not greasy at all and the fries that went with it were great. The service was very friendly, too. The only thing missing is homemade tartar sauce. Fish that good doesn't deserve the packets of tartar that comes with it. We'll still be back.

“Xcellent fish tacos and fish & chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

A block away from the fishermans wharf away from the crowds is the codmother fish and chips. The British style fish and chips are fresh cooked to order and not greasy. The fish tacos are also great.

“Great food, reasonable prices and very friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

The tour guide mentioned that one of their former guides opened a small restaurant near the last stop of the tour. While waiting for the evening tour, we decided to try Codmother Fish & Chips.
We are glad we did. The food was prepared after you ordered. The owner was very friendly and
tired to tempt up to try fired Oreo's and fried Snicker Bar. We were not adventurous , but did notice other young people trying the interesting dessert. They said it was GREAT ! There were several outdoor tables with umbrellas to sit and wait for the food. We ordered Fish, Shrimp & Chips. The food was served hot and it was delicious. The food was reasonably priced. What a wonderful fun little restaurant.

“Great people!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

The people at Codmother were super friendly. A lot of people in California seem to be nice, but these guys brought hospitality to a new level. We chatted and she gave us extra fries (always a plus). Food was great for the price as well! Nice place to stop and get a quick bite.. I would probably even walk here just to get food.

“Best Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Was near our hotel and we stopped by on our first day and loved the food. The fish and chips was the best I have had in quite a while.
