Friendly service and fun atmosphere with great food! There's limited outdoor seating so be prepared to either takeaway or just pop by again. But do remember to come back because it's good!

Great review - thanks so much... We are only really busy on Saturdays and holidays - most other times there is plenty of seating for those who want to stay and eat! Madeleine

We ordered the fish and chips and the fish tacos! Both were delicious and the prices were very reasonable. Special thanks to the lovely employee who took pity on this Tottenham supporter! Thanks for a great visit!

We came here 4 times yet this was the first time to eat (either closed or long lines). I was with a Brit and we all agreed that the fish and chips were absolutely wonderful- consistency, fish quality, quantity, taste. We'll be back, again...and again...

With all the sightseeing, it was tough to get back before they closed but that we did one evening. We ordered the large fish and enjoyed it very much. It was tasty, hot and hit the spot. Quite conveniently located and delicious with good service.

Our family visited over Thanksgiving week. Loved this place! Went twice. Very little seating and line around the fence but service was fairly quick. The fish is absolutely delicious. About $11 for a fish basket with fries. Go for lunch!~

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
