    Get a window table and watch the waves. For brunch, try the corned beef hash!

    Way better than I expected. Good bar & grill American menu. Simple classics. Cozy and comfortable even during a Giants playoff game. I suspect that the weekend day drinking scene is a little wilder.

    Beautiful views from the windows. Their fish n chips is very good! Also they serve brunch on Sundays and it's amazing! Make reservations to guarantee a table!

    Too expensive and nothing exciting on the menu. We did leave before trying anything... But that's because the menu was mundane at best.

    When available, the specialty German style beers, like Roggenbier, are excellent. On a sunny day, hang out on the back lawn and enjoy a cold craft beer and a view of the windmill.

    They've been making chalet beer since before craft brews were a twinkle in your eye, and the sweeping view of Ocean Beach, makes you want to cozy up with a creamy entree and one, or five, drinks. Read more

    Beer Chalet's SF Beer Week does not start at 11 as the listing suggested. If starts at 5. Do not make this mistake because they cannot accommodate you as their site suggests.
