Fodor's Review

You come for the views. Period. Beach Chalet is on the second floor of a 1920s building, garnering first-rate looks at Ocean Beach across the Great Highway (it used to be a changing room for beach goers). The service is just okay. The food is basic American—pastas, chowders, and braised short ribs. But Beach Chalet brews its own beers on-site and everyone seems happy with an atmosphere that makes you feel a million miles away from urbanity; a galley of windows is in

the dining room. Yes, there's a parking lot; yes, it's probably full. Brunch is extraordinarily popular (who can resist French toast on the beach?). Handily, the first floor houses Golden Gate Park Visitor Center and has beautiful WPA-commissioned murals depicting scenes in San Francisco during the Great Depression.
