Instead of cooking we decided to have Thanksgiving at the Park Chalet. The menu posted on the internet did not match the offerings available. The food was served buffet style which is no problem except there were no label stating what was being served. We had to guess what we were eating and felt as if we wasted food because... More

Park Chalet has great potential but the member of wait staff that we were served by let it down terribly. What started as friendly if lacklustre soon became terrible as he delivered the wrong order of tacos (that you would eat with your hands) to our table and left them unattended with us for over five minutes before coming with...

The Park Chalet is a glass-enclosed dining room downstairs and behind the Beach Chalet which views the ocean. Pick the Beach Chalet if you have a choice. The food and service were fine at the Park Chalet, but it was a warm day and the glass enclosure had the effect of a hot house with no ceiling fans or circulating... More

The service was the worst we have ever had. Our waitress would come back with a big smile and ask if she could get us anything. We would tell her and then wouldn't see her for 15 minutes. Food was prepared wrong, bill was wrong and it took us forever to get anything. We ate outside because we had our... More

It was an overcast day as I found a spot on my third loop through the two parking lots. We got a table outside close to the band(Beach Cowboys) and the excellent waitress(Kallie) came and took our drink order. We enjoyed the music and food, as we shared the clam chowder bread bowl and the delicious chicken macaroni and cheese.... More

My son and I had lunch there and brought our little dog, Jake. We initially sat in the grassy area, and after 10 minutes of waiting we moved to the patio. Another 10 minutes went by before we were approached by a server. He brought drinks promptly, even brought water for the pooch. When our entrees came out, my son's... More

After previously waiting for tables upstairs at the Beach Chalet we discovered the downstairs brew pub and restaurant. What a fun spot!! Visited there twice this last weekend. Enjoyed sitting on the lawn with beers and food in comfy adironback chairs. Saturday there was a fun band playing and it was a bit more crowded on the lawn than Friday... More

Much more accommodating for our big group of 7 than I'd have thought, and a sunny evening while it lasted, but that's the best I can say for this park side experience. The food is phoned-in, average at best, and overpriced, then subjected to a surcharge they make sound like a city mandate, but has not appeared on our check... More

This place is located on Ocean Beach, so parking can be difficult on the weekend when everyone is trying to go to the beach or Golden Gate Park. Food is mediocre, with the selections designed more for tourists than locals. I liked the clam chowder in the sourdough bowl and the lobster roll.

The place was not overly crowded but still we never got our ordered appetizers. After a 45 minutes wait the server apologized but could not give an explanation of what had happened. So we left more hungry than how we arrived.
