We weren't expecting a food truck but this worked out as we were on a tight schedule and the seating is fenced to block the wind. We were warm enough in the sun. Fish & Chips is nothing amazing but tasty enough and kids will find nothing to complain about. As four adults we could have split 2 larges and... More

The fish and chips were excellent with good sized portions and reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly. The seating is outside so pick a nice day. Would go back again.

Now we were on a tour, when we heard that the Codmother fish and chips was the best fish n chips in San Francisco. I was sceptical at first, but they quickly won me over! Very friendly staff, delicious food, and the unique atmosphere make this a must to visit! The fish and chips were light and very tasty, however... More

Excellent casual place! Very unique atmosphere (food truck with picnic tables), great for a nice lunch. The fish and chips are second to none! Try the fish tacos too!

Great food, worth a trip whilst visiting Fisherman's wharf in San Francisco! There may a queue as it is very popular but staff are very quick with getting out orders and very friendly - definitely worth the short wait!

A very simple menu, but oh so good. It's located just off Fishermans Wharf but is easy to find this food truck. There's plenty of seating so don't let that deter you. The owner and staff were extremely friendly. Overall a great stop!

This is an outdoor permanent food cart with ample seating in a great atmosphere. Super friendly service from nice British ladies, large servings, delicious food and really reasonable prices. I had the fish and chips which came with two large pieces of fish and tons of chunky fries for $10.99US. Yummmm
