First of all, Steve, the manager made sure we had a table with a view when he found out it was our anniversary - nice touch! We came for Clam Chowder and it was very good and full of clams. The Calamari was crisp and tender served with a tangy seafood sauce. Of course there was a basket of sourdough... More

A great place to chill out on Pier 39. I visited this place for lunch based on the local crowd heading here. It was a right decision as the food was very very tasty. The place appears a bit expensive but the size of their portions makes up for it. Service is extremely fast and the staff is friendly. Don't... More

The Chowder in bread was very good. The service quick and efficient even when busy. The seafood platter was average, more of a fry up with fish overdone, chips underdone and prawns and calamari very average. The 5% tax for employees health tax was an extra that was not explained up front, not impressed. Missed the mark for me, expected... More

We ate here on 12/21 after the Alcatraz Tour. We didn't want anything too expensive so chose this place. I had a salmon on bannock which was good. We also had the chowder in a bowl (not bread) which was delicious too.

The restaurant is conveniently located on the Pier. My son chose to dine in. There was a line but the wait is not too long. Service was quick once we ordered. Food was decent.

We stopped in just to get a drink and appetizer at the bar. We were greeted and taken care of by Rossie. Some of the best service we had our whole trip! He was attentive and personable and all while pretty much tending the whole bar by himself. Beer was cold and the appetizers we ordered were tasty! Will definitely... More
