This is an awesome place to eat! Its a tucked out of the way food truck, so you have to look for it. A worker on at the Meritime Historical Park suggested this place and I am so glad he did! My husband and I shared the fish and shrimp and chips combo meal. So good! I will definitely come... More

I know you can find fancier places with better views near the Wharf, but if you like fish and chips for under $15 in the area, this is the spot. Friendly staff, fresh food, and street side patio made for a great lunch with no stress.

I came in from Philadelphia and was looking for someplace close to the hotel. I found it and was very very happy. I had the fish and chips and it was excellent. It's in an interesting area on the way to the wharf and I'm glad I found it. It is a food truck and they have more than enough... More

I had checked out tripadvisor before our trip to San Franciso, and The Codmother was on my list. It did not disappoint. We had the fish and chips and the shrimp and chips, both were excellent! Make sure you know where is it, because it it pretty tricky to find. The staff was very friendly. Worth a stop!

I get that its just a fish and chip truck but with a very high rating, I expected a little more than just one type of fish and one type of batter. Perhaps this review is a case of expectations being too high because of its TA rating. That being said, the fish they served was fresh and tasty. I... More

Thanks so much for your comments and opinion - both of which are very important to us! However - we are just a food truck with very limited space, so can only offer the basics... I am glad that you liked the food we are able to offer! Madeleine More

Loved the food the fish tacos were yummy. The staff was very nice and helpful, enjoyed the outdoor area. This is a great little gem. We will be visiting SF in a few weeks and will definitely eat there again.

My husband and I got the fish and chips and the fish tacos. Both were excellent! The fish tacos have so much fish on them that initially it was hard to eat them. But after eating about half the fish off each taco, they were a little more manageable. Definitely a good little spot to stop for lunch!

Our guide on a Segway tour recommended this place. I'm glad we listened. The fish and chips are dynamite. The junior portion was plenty for me (1 large fish and fries.) The fried oreos were yummy.
