Lots of dessert love!

In Town for a visit and we went here for some amazing dessert. We had the sand castle and tiramisu with some lovely coffee. THE views were wonderful of the heavy waves today.

There is some dope art in the lobby from the olden days of yore and restaurant food too. The food is run of the mill but solid.

Perfect toward sunset to sit by broad windows on upper floor, looking out at the churning lines of surf, Tasty food & tempting brews produced on site. Premier attraction the WPA murals at sea -level, with historical exhibits too introducing McClaren, the creator & defender of San Francisco's heritage parks.

Two locals had recommended Park Chalet rather than Beach Chalet, but on arrival we found that Park Chalet was booked out by a private party, so we went for Beach Chalet. Beach Chalet can accommodate over 200 diners, and it was almost full when we were there. It has brilliant views of beach and ocean from almost every table. However... More

When here for lunch and the views across the road to the beach and waves rolling in are superb. The service was good and prompt and the food good

The views are lovely. However, the food was just ok. The service was above average, but not excellent. I did not try their beer selection, but their bloody Mary’s were great. They need serious upgrades to the restrooms.

It was my daughter's birthday and we were in San Francisco together for the day. What better place for two Texas girls to dine than overlooking the Pacific Ocean! We got a seat by the window and started out with the beer sampler from their brewery -- we liked some more than others but they were all tasty in some... More

We got a recommendation to visit The Beach Chalet while on our long weekend getaway to San Francisco. Although we were told you don't need a reservation, we phoned for one, since we were dining on a Friday evening in August. So glad we did. We arrived at sunset with lots of beach bonfires blazing just across the road. The... More

Well before I begin I should say that it has been impossible for me to find out who exactly is responsible for the gift shop and restrooms in the Beach Chalet visitor centre as no one has responded to my emails. So, I'll just go ahead on here and say it anyway, because I would discourage anyone from spending their... More

We decided to eat in this place after visited Golden Gate Park when we reached the ocean. This place offers an amazing view to the ocean and for this reason was full of people. But also because quality of food is great. We taked toast with speak and cheese and a plate composed of sauseges and scramble egges. Very good!... More
