We walked in 15 minutes late, but the staff and service was excellent, the food was off the chain and the whole experience was overwhelming. I will definitely come back next time I’m in San Francisco

The crab was perfectly cooked with garlic, the crab cakes were very good, and they made an excellent steak for a seafood place.

I asked a random shop employee on pier 39 where he goes for the best chowder. Without hesitation he said Pier Market. He didn't steer me wrong. Fast, friendly service, from the top notch wait staff. Didn't feel rushed despite the crowds. Definitely family friendly.More
