As a former Bay Area resident, I’ve been dropping in the historic Beach Chalet across from San Francisco’s Ocean Beach since it was remodeled and re-opened in 1997. Since moving to Orange County, I still manage to visit nearly every year, returning with family and...More

We came in here for a late lunch after a slow stroll along Ocean Beach. Knew it had to be a good place to eat as it was busy on a weekday afternoon. And we were right, simple food done to perfection is no simple...More

I loved this place. Downstairs is a little explanatory exhibition with fantastic murals. It needs more light. For my not-especially-old eyes it was all a bit hard to see and read - but worth it. We visited during a thunderstorm so eating downstairs seemed a...More

Knowing that it would be busy on Thanksgiving, we called ahead to see if they were taking walk-in reservations. We were told that they were definitely still taking walk-ins and that there would only be a 30min wait for a table. Based on this we...More
