Good but pricy seafood that embraces the bounty of California's waterways. A Ferry Building classic.

Happening little shoppe in the Ferry Building serving great on-the-go snacks. The raw stall today was selling Long Island (NY) clams and Chef Creek (BC) oysters at $2 per half shell! (That's lower than the market price of the more gourmet oyster bars in the area.) Drizzle a little lemon juice &/or Tabasco sauce and experience the divine chewy briny... More

The best way I can explain is to tell you about the "crab" quesadilla. It was a good size quesadilla, lots of cheese, not much crab. Ultimately disappointing. Probably would skip next time.

Stopped here for lunch on a very busy Saturday afternoon; I was surprised how busy the Ferry Building was at nearly 3p! There was no seating available at the small tables that are part of the Fish Company, so I got my order to-go and sat on a bench outside. I ordered some clam chowder and the swordfish sandwich.

This was the happiest place in San Francisco the Friday we returned, enticed by the offer of Aloha Friday specials! The joy of a little slice of Hawaiian magic in the Ferry Building (at the end of Market St),amid friendly locals, was just too good to be true. Think of yummy coconut shrimp, ahi poke tacos, fried fish katsu, ahi... More

For the last two days I've eaten the sandwiches, chowder and some appetizer specialties. I am so happy to get excellent sandwiches, prepared very well at a good price. Tomorrow is looking like a repeat performance. Its in the bold ferry building where you can grab a bite and then sit outside enjoying your meal with a view of the... More

Just great choice for lunch with the tuna burger. Friends also had the fish tacos and sushi and we're happy with those. Chowder and salads also good. Great building and plenty of other choices, making it a good choice location (the ferry building) for families.

We went after a trip to Alcatraz. Ordered fish tacos and coconut fish and chips. After hearing others who ordered after us have their orders called we questioned ours. We were told ours was coming only to realise after another wait they had lost our order. Staff were disinterested and disorganised and took some time to refund our money as... More

The wife and I went to the Ferry Building. I've been to SF about 16 times and never came to the Ferry Building for some reason. We wanted some Fish and Chips and found San Francisco Fish Company. It's a small place, but all the shops in the Ferry Building are small mostly, but there sure are a ton of... More
