Everything was wonderful. Our server made sure that the experience we had, being our first time there, was worth remembering. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone wanting delicious food, pleasant ambience, friendly and caring staff and breathtaking view to come to the Fog House.

I guess it’s hard to get a great all round dining experience in Pier 39, I concur with the consensus. A birthday celebration with cold fish cakes and a pretty tasteless fish mixed grill. The service was OK plus but I wouldn’t go back

I must say I was rather disappointed with our service.
I watched our waiters interaction with other tables and he was quite friendly, attentive, and kind. With us it was a very long and drawn out experience. About 2 hours or so. His attitude toward us was more so like we were bothering him.
Perhaps he didn’t think he would receive the 20% tip that I left him, undeservingly.

I’m not certain that I would return, even though the food was great. Paying that much money to be treated like a burden or unworthy isn’t exactly my cup of tea.

As foodies on our first trip to San Francisco, all this place felt like was a tourist trap. Food was just OK at very steep prices for what you got. If you go, go for the view and some clam chowder and head somewhere else for good seafood.

Decided to try Fog Harbor Fish after reading positive reviews, despite of my first instinct of avoiding it due to its touristy location. After eating there I wished I had gone with my first instinct! Ordered the cioppino, which was not good—looked like thick spaghetti sauce rather than a soup, and had mainly mussels, a couple clams, 1 small shrimp, and 1/2 of a scallop. My friend had fish and chips which were average. The best part of the meal was the fried scallop appetizer, which was delicious. Our waiter was not knowledgeable & did not know when we asked if the dungeness crab was local.

Living in SF for the past 15 years we as locals stay away from pier 39 and fisherman’s wharf like it’s contaminated with plague. It’s known for its junk stores and tourist rip off overpriced garbage food.
I now know that I have been missing out on one of the best seafood restaurants I have even eaten at.
This place has it all a fireplace lounge before you even walk in the place. Beautiful views of the bay and an accomdating and knowledgeable staff

Jessica was our server and her recommendations were on point. The shellfish tower was not only fresh and appetizing and mussel fries were out of this world amazing. Blue cheese garlic bread need I say more? And the garlic crab and swordfish steak were equally delish. Will be back soon!

The “whole crab” was AMAZING! At first I ordered “half crab” but the crab itself was tiny in comparison to the whole crab so I changed my order and it was larger and so delicious! The “garlic butter” was soooo over the top atom bomb strong! I would NOT suggest it if you plan on kissing or being intimate because it will cause your partner to pass out!!! lol! Also, I don’t think it was real butter. It was more like olive oil with garlic.

While visiting San Francisco during our recent cruise 🚢My husband and I while walking Fisherman’s Wharf came across the Fog Harbor Fish Restaurant The environment Could be better tablecloths and water views However it took 10 minuets to get a glass of water that wasn’t clean and another 10 minutes to have our order taken My Fish and chips was enateable there was so much salt on it I actually had to take the fish apart to be able to eat and the frys were also covered in too much salt The food on the ship was better We won’t be back

We chose Fog Harbor Fish house as our final destination for our California Anniversary trip, and we were not disappointed! After a day of site seeing, we were able to "go as we were" and enjoy an incredible dinner. We had the Shellfish Platter for 2, and Blue Cheese bread; both were superb! I believe because we made reservations ahead of time, we were able to get seating with a view of the Bay. Highly recommend this place!

Delicious food, excellent service, and an outstanding bay view make for an enjoyable lunch at Fog Harbor Fish House. Prices are a bit high, but my family enjoyed the house & wedge salads, as well as crab cake appetizer, and chicken penne entree. One hour validated parking is also nice, as it saves diners $9.00. I will definitely return to this Pier 39 restaurant.

I had looked forward to this meal for many days. The crab legs entree was delicious, but.... The clam chowder starter was a very small cup of what tastes mostly like potato and leek soup. Barely a hint of fish or clam taste. The ice cream dessert was a scoop of ice cream put in a clear small plain drinking glass with a spoon stuck in it. No presentation, nothing. Understood then why the set menu of these 3 dishes was so reasonably priced, I was basically paying high price for crab legs and getting two plain low quality side dishes for free.
Disappointed.
