I was in the mood for seafood. I ordered the local halibut and it was dry and terrible. Fries were not to my liking. Just bad. You order the food and they bring it to you. Not impressed and will not be back.

Had the halibut. Tasty but slightly overcooked. Good roll! Ok Cole slaw. I'd eat there again. The person who took my order was sweet. When I asked her which she preferred, the cod or the halibut she said the prawns. This made me giggle.

Cooks has the best fast food fried seafood in the bay area. Fish and chips are to die for. Food is always hot and fresh and never over cooked. Nice staff too!

A California institution. Have been coming here for years. I absolutely love the Alaskan halibut, always fresh and expertly prepared. Another favorite is Icelandic cod. Wide cut French fries and/or coleslaw are the sides. Moderately priced offerings. I usually get wine. On an Alaskan cruise,...More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and did not regret. Very tasty shrimps, prawns and cod - both in salad and with chips.
