Best place by the ocean
Food is not the point but if you go you will have a good time. good beers, great cocktails, live music, golden gate park. food is OK but not great, but I always see people smiling and be happy to be in such a great, casual, fun space with friends and family and having a good time. don't order the pizza. If you like beets, their beet salad is very good. otherwise, burgers, BLTs etc... are your best choice. go on any weekend day and you will have a good time!

Busy and Noisy but Fun
I like this place - it has a lot of different seating areas inside and out, but if you sit inside be prepared for a very noisy busy ambiance - not really conducive to conversation. The convertible walls can be wonderful on a warm day and the decor and colors are beautiful.
The food is good - if you have special requests or allergies, confirm that the waitperson really understands your needs because it is so noisy it is easy for them to miss something crucial.

Park Chalet revisit Mar' 2013
Took an out of town friend here and was a bit disappointed with the buffett choices this time around. Seems to be the same "old thing " each visit, but I always manage to make a good "eating outing" for myself. Would like to see more choices in the way of maybe some soups, breads, bagels with different smears, etc., vegetables, and so on. Might edrive up the cost a bit,but clearly will offer more in variety in each visit. My friend of course was so overjoyed, the weather was great, the seating outside was pleasant and the service as always was a delight.

Food was very good. Best veggie
Food was very good. Best veggie burger we'd ever had! Service was great and friendly. The room was divided into the sports bar area, if you wished to watch the TV, and a quieter area. Very fun evening and we will go back. IT's great to have something like this in that West part of town. The outdoor area is fun and the indoor area has a fireplace for those chilly beach evenings. Great place!

I have been going to park
I have been going to park chalet for years, I look foreword to going for many more. It does get noisy. I think they were missing a person on staff, so it was a little hectic.

Ocean side gem
Great food, service, and view - try to get to it whenever I take a bike trip along the ocean side highway.

We went to the Park Chalet
We went to the Park Chalet for a little dinner celebration for my kids' graduations. They easily accommodated the wheelchair of one person in our party, the service wa a great (very pleasant, attentive to our needs and friendly with my kids too), the food was very good and everyone enjoyed the meal. We'll definitely be back--hopefully on a sunny day to enjoy the lovely outdoor area.

I opted for the sausage plate. There were three different sausages on the plate; sausages were sliced in individual bits,The sausage is savory, complimented by a tsty fresh mustard.
The sausages were accompanied by chilled marinated asparagus.The combination of sausage and asparagus were quite complimentary.
I finished with cheese case with strawberries. A delight filled experience I hope to repeat again in the future.

Great place to Be...
I met a friend and his baby there. We were outside talking and just Being for over two hours. We enjoyed the beets salad. Great coffee and dessert. What made it so nice was the easy way we could be with the baby in the high chair and just hang out there. The service made this possible.

A delightful spot for Sunday
A delightful spot for Sunday brunch overlooking Golden Gate Park, the Park Chalet provides a tasty buffet.

Enjoyable experience; a fitting reward after our bike ride. Really looked forward to our linner. Service was a little slow this time. Took about 15 min to get our appetizer and salad. Beer arrived a little later; the server had to be reminded. On the whole a very good dining experience for those not in a hurry.

Gets better and better
We arrived early and expected to wait until our reservation time. We were seated immediately and had excellent service throughout our meal... our delicious meal! The sliders, caesar salad, lamb sandwich, and chocolate chip cookie dessert were fantastic (there were four of us, not just me). Good wine list and great local beers. Fun and really good live band (not too loud). The Park Chalet was a great spot for a beautiful San Francisco Saturday with friends and their little one (there were lots of toddlers for her to run around with, and the setup is great for watching them to make sure they don't stray too far).

The Perfect Afternoon
We wanted to take my 95 year old grandmother out to lunch. We had a party of 7 and had a great experience. The crab sandwich was excellent!

Chalet SF Style
What a great find! I've been in San Francisco a little under a year since relocating, and this was one of the fun places to come to. Park Chalet, not to be mistaken for the Beach Chalet (upstairs), serve drinks and food outside on the grassy lawn as well. We had a late lunch there, and I had the great buffalo wings, but the menu looks like they have a variety of burgers. They brew their own beer, and I tried at least 3 before my belly couldn't take it anymore, but I'll be back for sure to try what ever is in season. Lastly, the ambiance was -- for a lack of a better way of saying it -- off the hook! There was a live band there playing on the lawn when we were there, which made it that more fun... Thanks Park Chalet for a great afternoon!

A great place for locals and tourists. Love the Recovery Brunch.

The Sunday brunch is a treat. Generous with the sparkling wine and lots of choices at the buffet table.

We very much enjoyed our Thanksgivi
We very much enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner in this friendly, informal atmosphere. Both families and singles all seemed to enjoy this indoor-outdoor setting, with flatscreen sports and a bar for those who wanted it and lots of trees and greenery looking out the two ceiling-to-floor glass walls. The buffet was very good - of special note were the: ham--juicy and tender; whipped sweet potatoes and dressing, both with intriguing flavors, neither over nor under-spiced; the pumpkin pie--again, well spiced with a flavorful crust. Also, must note that I've never seen a wait staff that seemed so genuinely happy to be working that day, each and every one! Thank you!
