About Us!

Betty Lou’s Seafood & Grill has a long history in San Francisco's North Beach, with partners who have worked together at other restaurants in the area for over 30 years. Hector Chaparro, the executive chef, hails from Temascalcingo, Mexico, and Betty Pesce and her son JR -  who will greet you at the front door - are third and fourth generation Portuguese from Hawaii . Our team takes great pride in being a warm, friendly San Francisco eatery with a top notch seafood and Italian flair!


While you're here indulge yourself with our Classic Cioppino - San Francisco’s seafood stew, filled with succulent Dungeness crab, prawns, scallops, clams, mussels and calamari – utter perfection!  And expect to be dazzled by Mike’s Wok Crab, a creation of Betty’s husband, Mike - a concoction of Dungeness crab, ginger, scallions, red peppers and soy sauce; wok tossed with lots of love.  This dish has become a huge favorite! And if seafood is not your thing, you might try the juicy 16-ounce bone-in ribeye or Chicken Piccata!

Hector, Betty and JR look forward to the pleasure of your company!
