    Cioppino is an Italian fish stew created by fisherman who resided in North Beach. There are several excellent places to score cioppino in the city, but Woodhouse is a little off the beaten path. Read more

    I don't understand how this kind of place could have 8.8 on Foursquare. Stuffed artichoke difficult to eat, not good. Low quality, overpriced. Angry staff make noise with crockery. Much better choices

    The service is terrible! We waited for a table for five for about an hour an a half. They crossed out our name and let other people who came after eat before us. I wouldn't recommend for more than two

    Lobster roll easily has an ENTIRE lobsters worth of meat. Split the large with a friend & a 1/2 dozen oysters. Wash it down with a beer and you just had a Cape Cod experience.

    Side substitutions are allowed. Seating is a bit tight so be wary if it's crowded. The fries are super flavorful though, as well as the crab melt.
