The ambiance is serene but playful -- I feel like I'm at the beach with perfectly colored walls, natural wood tables and chairs, and big, overhead skylights. The ambiance is beaten by the friendly and helpful service, which is almost trumped by the food. This...More

Just a very good selection of dishes for lunch, great outdoor space and perfect service. I really enjoy this cafe. I will go again next time i'm in San Francisco!

The combination of fresh ingredients, prepared to enhance their flavor, not mask them, makes Nettie's a favorite for me. The squid was perfectly grilled, the fish tacos moist and topped with creative, tangy sauces and crisp fresh vergetables. Service was well informed, attentive but not...More

Great service - owner Nettie is especially friendly. Food is simple, fresh, and delicious. Fish special changes frequently and is usually my favorite dish. My wife and I bring lots of out of town guests here and they always enjoy it.

We had lunch at Nettie's Crab Shack on an 80 degree day in San Francisco in OCTOBER! We sat outside on the patio and watched the people go by. A busy street for traffic, but pleasant nonetheless. We had a crab salad and a glass...More

Had the tuna special, and it was okay but not really that tasty. My wife had the crab cob salad, and it was a little flat. We dined outside and it was quite nice, but the food was not as tasty as we hoped.

I have honestly had dreams about the food at Nettie's. So incredibly delicious, from their caesar salad to their crab cakes to their incredibly popular warm dungeness crab roll. Definitely worthy of your time and trip, as well as worth the price.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
