The food is fresh and very tasty. There was plenty of outdoor seating and the staff was very friendly.

No frills just good fish and chips. Lovely lovely service and very reasonable. A much needed stop off for a cheap but very tasty fill up on our way to Alcatraz. :-)

This is an outside/food truck cafe. There are a few tables but seating is limited. The fish and chips were perfect. Cooked while you wait; fresh and tastey. No restroom that I saw but they do offer hand sanitizer. Keep in mind you're at the...More

I don't know if we're Fish and Chip snobs, or just unlucky, but for us this was one of the worst fish and chip experiences we've had anywhere in the world. To start with the sauce, we think it was meant to be tartare sauce,...More

Turn left out of the Tuscan Inn heading West towards the Golden Gate Bride - walk approx 2 blocks to Jones Street - turn right on Jones Street and you will see us on the corner of Jones and Beach! See you soon, Madeleine
