An amazing preparation of Crab and Clam Chowder. One of the best Fish And Chips I had in the Bay area. One of the better restaurants in the Fishermans Wharf area.

This restaurant has horrible seating and staff. There food is mediocre at best and there are two areas. One for customers who sit down and order and on for customers who order from the takeout window. This makes the seating horrible along with the uncomfortable...More

The crab chowder and claim chowder in bread bowls are to die for. There is a great combination of seafood and burgers for everyone. The service is friendly and fast enough considering the crowds of Fisherman's Wharf.

Try the calamari and clam chowder. They're pretty good. If you have children that aren't fans, there are burger, fries, and hot dogs. Standard fare for younger folks. Reasonably priced with plenty of seating for relaxing one's feet.

The Chowder Hut is always our first stop in San Francisco. We split the sour dough bun filled with hot clam chowder. This is so good (hot and tasty) and a tradition for us to begin our visit to this great city. The service is...More
