We were seated with a great ocean view. This is a great jumping off point to visit golden gate park. There is a free shuttle that stops in front of the restaurant.

The building with its Doric facade faces the highway & ocean beach, with breakers just beyond: not for swimming, but intrepid surfers despite January chill. Inside, historic murals from WPA Labaudt: showing scenes of ordinary life in 30s San Francisco. Upstairs substantial dining with views of the ocean & tap into locally brewed beers (Red Tide sounded attractive).

Location, location, location. This place has it in spades. They serve a wonderful varied and tasty breakfast with one of the best Ocean views in the area, being on the second floor across from Ocean Beach. Prices are commiserate with the location. We spent about $50 for breakfast, having two entrees one cappuccino and a shared order of beignets. Our... More

We went for late lunch on a Thursday, thinking since it was after 1pm it shouldn't be a problem. Well they told us it would be a 25 min wait which turned into over an hour. My husband went up to ask what the problem was and they magically seated us, which was weird. We didn't want to spoil dinner... More

I dined here 3 times during my stay in San Francisco. I was staying at a rental near the beach. Service and food are excellent. Schnitzel was very tender and served with apples and potatoes. Very good key lime pie in a jar. Half rotisserie chicken was very tender and flavourful too. Restaurant is located across from the beach and... More

Service by Carlos was very poor, was made to feel guilty for asking for a fresh tea because I was made to wait so long for milk it had gone cold. He also forgot entirely about the water we ordered for the child. The food arrived, mine was good however my partner got the French toast and was only served... More

Lovely brunch overlooking the Pacific (we lucked out and had a window table). On the main floor are WPA murals telling stories of old San Francisco and a docent can tell some tales behind the people and places.

Enjoyable views and comfortable patio make this a nice place for lunch on a sunny day. It is fun to share the patio with families, dogs, beach-goers and others. The food is standard bar fare. Service can be great or slow, but that is not the reason to go.The mural in the lobby from the 1930's is fun. Overall, a... More
