Another site that has good views and good food. Usually easy to park and access. The views and food are not as good as at Cliff House, but still a good choice if looking for a meal with a view.

The restaurant has a first level outside dining area in the back that can be wonderful for lunch, particularly on cold clear crisp days in the winter. Their salads are good and their beers are interesting. The problem is the upstairs restaurant which can be quite pricey. I went there with my hubby to enjoy dinner and the sunset a... More

We walked out because they stuck us beside the stairwell at the back even though there were several other empty table available. My wife and I are 60 year old professionals and not homeless bums. When I expressed my displeasure, they offered to move us. However, why stay in a place that doesn't want you. Went to Outerlands instead and... More

Very crowded popular spot, it was dark when we arrived from our walk out of Golden Gate Park so we chose the downstairs area. Sat at the bar and shared delicious appetizers. Mac and cheese - outstanding! Also great crab roll and calamari. It was a perfect end to our fun day in the Park. So glad this historic building... More

This restaurant is located at the west end of Golden Gate Park, and the second floor dining room overlooks Ocean Beach. The service was mediocre and so was the food, especially for this area. San Francisco is known for its sourdough bread, so if you're looking for clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, look somewhere else (it's served everywhere).... More

We stopped here because we've seen this restaurant a hundred times when in San Francisco. The view was beautiful and the service was good, but I could barely eat my food. I had the Crab Cake Benny because I love crab benedict's. I couldn't finish it. My husband had the Ocean Beach Breakfast, and it was good. I wouldn't go... More

They have a great patio and comfortable lawn chairs. We each got one of the beer samplers, and it was very generous. I believe it came with 8 decent sized samples. We also split the Calamari. The beer isn't available for the lawn seating, but it is available on the patio. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

I love this spot! Right at the end of Golden Gate Park with stunning views of the Pacific. We often stop here on our way home (North Bay) from the airport as a "Welcome to San Francisco" lunch for visitors and have never been disappointed. Is it the best Brewery around? Not by a mile, but that's not what I... More

I ventured into the Beach Chalet as I was touring Ocean Beach. It was rather early, so I wanted to have a light meal but I also wanted to sample some of their beers. The Beach Chalet Restaurant is one level up with floor to ceiling unobstructed windows and sweeping views of the ocean and Ocean Beach. I was allowed... More
