$19 for $35 Worth of Seafood

Lou's Fish Shack

There's lots of fresh seafood to choose from at Lou's Fish Shack. Menu options range from steamed clams to blackened-Pacific-snapper sandwiches served with housemade tartar sauce, to the chagrin of Kraft's tartar-sauce team. And for the diner who wants it all, there's the Dungeness crab cioppino, a tomato-based stew filled with the namesake crab, shrimp, calamari, mussels, clams, bay scallops, and snapper. From their kitchen on Fisherman's Wharf's pier 47, Lou's chefs prepare and cook each dish in house with catches sourced from local markets. The same goes for the restaurant's seafood alternatives, including new york strip steak and angel-hair pasta tossed with tomato, basil, and garlic.

Meals can unfold on a sidewalk patio or inside Lou's Fish Shack's two-floor restaurant, where natural light passing through large windows illuminates decor fashioned from repurposed wood and metal. Each Friday through Sunday night, the restaurant's two levels fill with the dulcet tones of the Bay Area's top blues musicians.

The Gist

What some people are buzzing about:


The crab bisque and clam chowder were both savory and satisfying without the heavy creaminess that you get from cheaper bisques.

Lisa P., Yelp!, 10/8/12

My husband had the clam chowder and pacific snapper sandwich and loved both! I had a burger and fries which is basic but it was good.
