“Feed the seals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I love going to Fisherman's Wharf; usually I avoid the expense of fish and chips at Barb's - I do find they are over priced, especially when the only seating is on a wharf, with the seagulls, numbers are given and it is take out food. However, the food is delicious, and the ambience works. I only gave an average because it does seem overpriced. This is on the coast after all.
