We had fish & chips. Both fish and fries were perfect. No ambience but that's not why you eat there.

This is really a hidden gem that you must search out and find. By far the best < $ 10 fish & chips we've had. It was so good we ate there twice during our five day stay. Don't waste your time and money eating elsewhere in the fisherman's wharf area ( fish & chips wise ). Very friendly staff. Small eating area and as others have mentioned ( packaged tartar sauce ), but the best fish & chips we've almost ever had. Good luck to the gals running this place as they deserve all the kudos !

Just a block away from the mayhem of Fisherman's wharf, Cod Mother is a great fish and chips option. The fish was fried perfectly, crispy but still juicy and the shrimp was great too! The only reason I didn't give this a perfect mark is that they serve packaged tartar sauce (that still tastes good) and the fish batter was missing that little bit of spice that I love in fish and chips. I still recommend this place though!

The Codmother is exactly the kind of place I look for when traveling. A secret place that over delivers in food and quality and does it at a great price. The restaurant is a small trailer or box in a plot of land near fishermans wharf. It has a few tables and chairs that you have to be crafty to snag which is the only downside. The food comes hot and bountiful, I ordered the large fish and chips and was stuffed for hours. My wife ate the fish tacos and loved it especially the Baja sauce. We walked the wharf later and saw all the good stands and were so happy we ate at the Codmother.

We sought out this place after reading reviews on here. Everything said about the food is true...high quality, yummy fish...a tad on the salty side. Garlic fries should be ordered only if you LOVE garlic because you'll taste them for hours after. The patio area for seating was kind of dirty and a little old guy was digging through the trash for cans as we ate...more power to him...but the timing didn't seem appropriate. All in all, a fun experience and glad we went.
