Lobster roll OR Crab roll? Lobster roll HANDS DOWN. No wait… Crab roll.
And what about the clam chowder? Or the fish and chips?
Ugh. Decisions, decisions.
Woodhouse Fish Co. is a serious seafood haven & awesome lunch spot located on Fillmore Street (across from Roam Burger & SPQR ). It has a fun + chill vibe with a simple, yet well-decorated interior featuring a huge fish hanging overhead, a sleek marble bar counter, and a few nautical elements.
Now back to THE most important question at hand.
Lobster roll or crab roll??
If I wasn’t worried about losing my figure, I’d totally get both.
But for now. Let’s talk about one of the best lobster rolls in San Francisco.
This Split-top Maine Lobster Roll is the way to go (insert: emoji with heart eyes). You get large chunks of lobster meat nestled between perfectly buttered bread. The lobster is so fresh that they only use a tiny bit of mayo and minimal dressing.
Which means… it’s kinda healthy, right? lol (whatever helps me sleep at night).
It’s served with a side of long thin-cut fries and a small bowl of coleslaw.
Side: it’s hard to find lobsters roll in SF that uses quality seafood and ingredients.
So. While this is somewhat pricey, it’s still considered to be moderately priced for a lobster roll of this quality in SF. $18 for a small, and $26 for a large (pic above).
Anyone craving fish and chips?
I know this is a simple dish, but hey- this is actually one of the tastiest & BARELY greasy fish & chips I’ve ever had. It’s made with wild alaskan cod (super fresh) cooked in a anchor steam beer-batter.
The crust of the fish is so flakey, that it practically falls apart on your first bite. The fish was perfectly cooked with a moist, light, and wonderful flavor.
Also comes with fries and coleslaw ($15- three pieces/ $12- two pieces)
To round out the meal, you gotta finish it off with a bowl of clam chowder. It was full of clams, thick, just creamy enough and full of flavor. I only wish I didn’t split a bowl with my BF. But since I’m trying to keep my figure and all… I didn’t mind.
PS: On Tuesdays, they do $1 oysters! Come early because everyone else will be here too.
The oysters come with fresh cut lemons and cocktail sauce with a dollop of horseradish.
A fun thing they also do here is a create-your-own lemonade or Arnold Palmer. It comes with lemonade, simple syrup, and iced tea in separate container that you mix yourself.
To sum it all up…
I’M COMING BACK FOR THE CRAB ROLL!!
But really though, everything is so fresh here that you just can’t go wrong with anything you order. Woodhouse Fish Co. is the perfect spot for a lunch date, it’s great for families with children, and its the perfect spot to fix your seafood craving. If you have anyone visiting SF, you should DEF bring them here for the lobster/crab roll. They’ll love you forever.
PS: lines get pretty cray here and they don’t take ressies, so avoid peek hours.
