Visited this week and outside was a sea of people staring i to their phone as this is a Pokey Stop so watch for distracted gamers as you pull into and out of the parking lot Good views of the beach and ocean Great stop for drinks and snacks we enjoyed the tuna calamari and shrimp and crab claws Bathrooms...

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the CA Science Museum. We didn't realize that the Park Chalet was within the same building and probably would have preferred to eat outside, but we enjoyed the view from the Beach Chalet. Our food was very good and service was great. I tried the beer sampler and expected a small sampling of... More

We stopped here after our walk through Golden Gate Park. It overlooks the beach and the ocean. The food was good, atmosphere good. Unfortunately, the day we were there, they were short staffed so the service was a bit spotty. The waitress worked hard...but she had a lot of tables to wait on. Basically it took a while to serve...

Tonight's dinner was a special birthday dinner for my brother. We had dinner overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the Beach Chalet Restaurant, 1000 Great Highway, 415-386-8439 open 9-11. Not a fancy restaurant but they have good quality food with even better views of the Pacific Ocean. We had the daily special of linguini with lobster $??, chalet burger $13, and... More

We stumbled upon this place after walking end to end in the park and were pleasantly surprised. The lower dining area is very nice and cosy and the service was good. We only had buffalo wings and drinks (which were all good) so hard to judge their produce. One strange thing was my kids ordering ice cream sandwiches and they... More

Visited the restaurant with friend for a 6:30 dinner. Had reservations and therefore got a good window seat. Our friend who was visiting from outside Calif. enjoyed the wall frescos and memorabilia of SF past. I enjoyed the beers. The food was just OK. My burger was on a tasty bun but the beef seemed like a frozen patty. The... More

We brought our Corgi to the Corgi convention at the beach across the street and chose thus restaurant over the only other one in the general area mainly because we had been here before but also because there is a brewery on site. We had clam chowder which was awesome with clams in every bite; calamari which was also great... More

Went here hoping to have a nice end of trip dinner overlooking the ocean. The setting is beautiful and the building is interesting historically. The WPA murals are worth seeing. Reservations were easily made. The service was good but the noise was awful. There were several tables joined together where a family had all of their children sitting while the... More

This is a really cool place—and judging from the crowd, extremely popular. Along with the drinking and dining comes a bit of history, always a good combination in my book. The building, at the western edge of Golden Gate Park, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, dates to 1925 and originally was a changing room for “bathers.” In 1997 it became today’s... More
