    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.

    I'm from New England and this is one of the best lobster rolls I've had.

    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

    Great tasting N. England style lobster & crab 🦀 sandwiches; the butter-garlic toasted bread is simply perfect. Their french fries are the best in the city. Good service, place is usually very crowded

    Crab linguini was great, lots of meat. The whole crab was even better. Good French fries! Make-your-own summer shandy was tasty too

    Go for the lobster roll and oysters. The lemonade is DIY so you can put exactly as much syrup as you like and no have it overly sweet. Friendly service.

    Lobster roll is delish but small portion for the price. Also, their fish tacos were great too. Crispy and flavorful. Good for casual dining.

    Delicious oysters and although I haven't had it myself, I hear the lobster roll is just amazing.

    The toasted buttered Dungeness roll is awesome! As is the claim chowder. Most of the specials are also very good.

    Mehhhh. Completely vibeless restaurant serving absolutely fine seafood staples in an uninspired location with dead-eyed wait staff. Feels like a simulacrum. You have entered the matrix.

    I've just declared the grilled artichoke stuffed with dungeness crab & shrimp my favorite lunch in the city (which is saying a lot!) Amazing!!

    Food is good, takes a while. I got the larger lobster roll $26 which had 6 oz, but small would definitely have been enough. If you live nearby call in to put your names down first

    Never thought I would enjoy a grilled artichoke stuffed with dungeness crab & shrimp, as much as the one here. Even the tossed greens it sat on were expertly dressed.

    Everything is amazing, but my faves are the Softshell Crab BLT, Dungeness Crab Sandwich, Dungeness Crab, Cioppino, and $1 oyster night on Tuesdays.

    GREAT LOBSTER ROLL. GREAT BBQ OYSTERS. but pricey for the small amount of food you get.

    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.

    I can't believe more tips don't mention the Cioppino. I've tried a ton of rolls and other dishes but the Cioppino remains at the top of the list.

    The bread pudding here is made with sourdough bread. This unique twist that offers a tinge of tartness, which is countered by the rest of the sweet ingredients. 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

    Cioppino is an amazing bowl of seafood, but the salt will stay on your tongue for days after.

    A cup of creamy clam chowder to start was great. Get the crab roll instead of the crab melt. Both were good, but the roll was great.
