This is my new favorite S.F. restaurant. Great view, easy parking, and just had the best prime rib dinner ever. Roomy dining area with excellent service.

The delicious veg frittata and baked french toast highlighted a wonderful meal. Nothing beats the ocean view from the upstairs windows. Service was unobtrusive and courteous. Noise level was bothersome with many large parties including kids.

We had dinner here, ordered steak. It was great. The serving was a little bit slow but the place was full. I warmly recommend it.

We had a wonderful lunch, very tasty, and with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. Don't let a full parking lot fool you. Grab a spot and wait your turn. It's worth the visit.

The Beach Chalet can still finish off your Ocean Beach visit on a high note, but beware of peak noon and sunset times on sunny weekends. Just way more demand than they can handle. Restaurant staff is in short supply in San Francisco. We stop there monthly after a hike through Golden Gate Park. One of the best hamburgers in... More

Cappuccinos and Beignets cap a great breakfast and the sampler beer gives a reassurance that San Francisco has joined the hops craze! It was a little too much for my taste but I did enjoy the subtle flavors brewed before the hops takes over the aftertaste. The food was of decent quality with some small errors of eggs Benedict on...

We called in for a group reservation, and were told they could handle 15 people. They limited the selections, and all plates were nearly $30; food was ok, but it took forever to be served; then, to our surprise, one of our cars had the window smashed and a bunch of things were stolen. Don't park on the street! It... More

Food was good but nothing special. Enjoyed the home brewed beers on offer. Great view of beach at sunset and night and every table has a view. We booked a table but waited 30 minutes to be seated. We weren't the only ones. It was a Saturday night and crowded with people enjoying themselves and not wanting to leave. To... More

I live in San Francisco and have been to the Beach Chalet many times. Recently we thought we'd try the downstairs section. It was less crowded. Now I can see why. The food was so-so, the atmosphere unimpressive, and the service awful, aided and abetted by a manager who said I was rude because I complained about not being offered... More

DO NOT BOOK YOUR EVENT WITH BEACH CHALET or any sister venues (Lake Chalet and Park Chalet.) JUST DON'T COME HERE PERIOD. you will have the worst service in your life! They have RUINED our WEDDING event. It was a small event for less than 25 people and I couldn’t believe how they could mess up on every little detail.... More
