Stopped here for lunch after walking Fisherman's Wharf on a Sunday. Waited 20 min for an outside table but well worth it. Awesome Buffalo wings and good Mussels. We had a very witty Waiter who was slightly over worked but managed to take care of us.

This is a great place to people watch on Jefferson. You have a full view for some distance either up or down the wharf.

We were hungry after walking the bridge and coming back through the Presidio and Crissy Fields. Was seated quite quickly at an outside table it was a very small table for
for two, fish & chips, corn chowder, two sodas and a beer came to about $50 plus tip which I thought was expensive. The service was average they dont really engage with the customer, I walked through the bar to use the restrooms and it was very nice but the restrooms need more attention, lots of alternatives resturants around

We always eat here when we are in San Francisco. It was a beautiful day when we visited and had the pleasure of sitting outside watching people walk up and down the wharf.

The food is always great and the chowder in sourdough bread is a sure fire hit!! Ice cold beverages and plenty of champagne!

The crab Louie salad is my favorite, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My husband had the crab in the garlic sauce and it was amazing. I dipped the sourdough bread in that and it was like heaven.

We learned that the original owner sold in 2015, but the new owners kept the staff and everything the same. So glad because it's a great place to eat!

My husband and I stopped last minute seeing the sign for $3 anchor beers, $5 clam chowder bread bowls and $8 fish and chips. Judy was an amazing waitress and the food was great! Sat outside and glad we stopped.
