I just love the atmosphere and casual friendly service in this pearl of a small seafood restaurant. No booking necessary (or even possible), just turn up and they'll find you a table, worth a wait too if none are available but I'd advise you go as early as possible. Their "signature dish" is the stuffed artichoke, it's just brilliant, and... More

With a few hours to kill, I stepped into the Market St location for a bite. This location is pretty small, seating no more than 30 at a time would be my guess. That was not a problem as I was dining around 11am on a Wednesday. I sat at the dining bar facing into the kitchen which as all... More

My wife and I were wandering through the Castro and came across the Woodhouse Fish Company. The small restaurant was packed inside and had a cozy feel so we stopped in for lunch. Our waitress Michelle was delightful - and our meals were fabulous. My wife ordered fish and chips which were perfect - fresh, thinly coated and not greasy... More

After I found out Fishermen's Grotto closed, I lamented, "Where will I get my Crab Louis sammie now?" Didn't take me long to find this spot on Trip Advisor. My vacay was saved! The Green Dots don't lie! I told my friends that we would go there for lunch first thing after stowing our bags at the hotel. They agreed,... More

Two of us had dinner on November 20. We started with a dozen oysters on the half shell. Six from Washington state and six from New York. Washington oysters were smaller and a little bit salter. Being from Texas we both preferred the New York, larger and more to our taste. My friend ordered the fish tacos. He said that... More

What a fun, lively restaurant to enjoy fresh fish, a salad, something quick and not expensive. While walking in SF today, we selected Woodhouse Fish Company - a local, neighbor find. It was about 1:00 PM on a Saturday - perfect time. Only a few tables, but a great business. A good selection on the menus, including a kids menu.... More
