Cheesy Oysters | | May 29, 2010 10:54 AM

I didn't see much on the board about the Woodhouse Fish Co on Market so I thought I'd add a quick review. We went last night (Friday) around 5:30 after spending the day at the museums. The restaurant is small so we were glad to get there early and the server let us take the largest and only booth even though we were a group of four. We started off with oysters and calamari. Oysters were very fresh taking and calamari was fried nicely. They came with a spicy cocktail sauce and Thousand Island dressing. Three of us got a cup of clam chowder. I had a taste of my daughter's and it was delicious - flavorful and just the right thickness for my taste. We decided it was the best we had out in a long time.

Two of us shared the Iceberg lettuce wedge with a blue cheese dressing. It came with some beets and croutons and a tangy creamy dressing.

For mains, my son got the crab roll sandwich, I had the two piece fish and chips, and my partner got the crab cakes. Both the crab roll and fish and chips were served with thin cut french fries. My son gobbled up the sandwich. I'm a sucker for fish and chips and they serve beer battered style which is not my favorite. They were good but I prefer a lighter thinner batter. The fish was very good however. Crabcakes were very good with just the right amount of crab - as in lots.

The adults got Sierra Nevada on tap and the kids liked how the lemonade was served - separate simple syrup and water to add to the squeezed lemon and ice.

We were very happy and will return again. We generally head to Fish or Half Moon Bay when we want fish and seafood so it was good to find a spot in the city.

On Tuesday, oysters are $1.
