“Chowder Hut Grill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We had lunch here, and thought the food was very average. The crab sandwiches were a little disappointing!

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Stopped in on a warm sunny day for a drink and a snack. We shared a whole dungeness crab and some fried pickles. Drinks were strong and good, nice cold beer. The crab and pickles were delicious. Our waiter was very nice and service was fast. Nice to sit outside and people watch. If you want a crab, at $15 this is a good place to get one without breaking the bank!

“Great location, focused on tourists”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Right in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf, you cannot miss Chowder Hut, especially if arriving by a famous trolley car.
Stick to the simple though. The fish and chips were excellent. The crab chowder served in a cob loaf presented very well. Pity it was not as good as it looked.

“Great Sitting Outside, Food only OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

It was great to sit outside by the fire pits after playing tourist for the day with the family. There is a decent selection to choose from, even a few Happy Hour choices as well. Our Server was very nice. The food was OK but about par what you would expect .

“Good for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch. Clam chowder in a sour bread bowl, and fish tacos. Great! Good value, good quality. One point....more sunshades at the tables would be nice as the sun is getting stronger.
