We have always loved San Francisco. The sights, weather and the food are excellent. Unfortunately the last couple times we have gone there have been more homeless activity than before and a very noticeable lack of police presence. They have gotten more aggressive asking if...More

Against the advice of one of our friends, we went to Fisherman’s Wharf to be nosy. It’s a tourist trap and nothing really to see. There are mostly trinket shops and people trying to hustle you for money. Don’t waste your time with this place.

We chose to stay on Fisherman's Wharf rather than in the city whilst in San Francisco. I am so glad that we did. It was lovely to be next to the sea. Fisherman's Wharf has lots of places to eat and shops, although they are...More

Took my wife, mom and some friends to San Francisco for a convention. We visited Robert Mondavi and Conn Family wineries, Chardonay Golf Course, Pleasant Hill, Fisherman Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip.

It's a wharf like others, but SF manages to create a nice place in the neighborhood. For me it's a place to stop (parking) and start walking around to discover nearby attractions. Great seafood restaurants around the sign (place to take pictures) and close to...More

I'm local so there's really nothing exciting at Fisherman's Wharf--except it does have great views, a pretty dock. But Alioto's is worth going there for. Great seafood, good service & usually not crowded. Reservations probably best to get a good seat.

Each little restaurant offers delicious chowder in a bread bowl (ask for the insides of the bowl that they scoop out and throw away - gasp). Boudin bakery is here as well- delicious.

I didn't feel like the prices were overly high. It was not a quick fish and chips pub - more like a nice dinner place. $13-22
