I had the Wipeout Fried Combo consisting of cod,calamari and coconut shrimp it was delicious and they serve Blue Moon so it would be rude not to have a few. We called again on our third and last day in San Francisco and had the...Hawaiian burger it was delicious too plus a couple of Blue Moons. Good service and clean.Definitely recommend.More

When we arrived the place was very busy and loud. We waited a few minutes before being shown to a table. We had to ask for menu's. Our server arrived who was a different person to the one showing us to our table. The server...came back about 10 minutes later with menu's amd straight away asked if we wanted to order. I asked for a few mins to read the menu. 15 mins later he returned to take our order. We ordered a BBQ pizza to share and portion of fries. On the table next to us was a woman and 2 children. One of the children was uncontrollable, banding the table, screaming, kicking the table. It wasn't until the child, (about 8), threw the salt bottle and it hit my wife did I suggest to the woman she leave. The servers just stood watching the scene. The woman screamed at me and a woman came over and said the lady and her children needed to leave. Two more servers joined us. In the end they left. The food arrived shortly after and we asked where the drinks were. Apparently they forgot. The food was average at best. We ate half of the food and ordered the bill as we just wanted to leave. The bill arrived and we paid. It's usual in the USA to leave a tip, but we didn't as we were disgusted with the whole experience. I wouldn't come here if we return to San Francisco again. Not only that, but the food was over priced. About £50 for 2 cokes and a pizza.More

Arrived at 7 pm, ordered 3 lagers, 1 Stella and 2 wipeout , if we hadn’t paid €10.50 we would have left them, awful.. this should have been a warning sign but carried on and ordered food, a Caesar salad and 2 burritos, the salad...was literally a dry plate of lettuce with no sign of sauce, and the burritos were undercooked and tasteless.. we were passed our bill minutes after finishing our meal and they were clearly in a rush to close up… waste of money and calories !More

Stopped in on busy Pier 39 and got a table for lunch right away. Both inside and outside seating. Quick service. Simply shared one Nashville hot chicken sandwich between the two of us. Huge sandwich. So delicious. Just the right amount of heat and filled...with crunchy coleslaw. Great French fries, too! Sorry, no picture, we devoured it too fast!More

We spent a week in San Francisco. While there we stopped in at Wipeout for a beer and lunch. We sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender. the establishment was relaxed and comfortable. The food portions were large, we could have shared something....I enjoyed the salmon BLT, my husband had a burger. All the food was very good and delivered in a timely fashion. We enjoyed the it so much we went back another day to enjoy a few beers. Again we sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender. Both bartenders were friendly & knowledgeable. I have to say........bartenders can make or break the experiences. Aldrin & Juana certainly made our experiences a positive one! thanks to both of them. the beer choices were delicious too!More

Owned by the same people who have Fog Harbour. The food is of the same standard, but normal size portions and reasonably priced. The staff aren't rushed off their feet and were very attentive. We were served by Morgan and she was friendly and attentive....Gave us time to order and no rushing of us to eat up and go. The model for these restaurants are to turn tables quickly, which at the likes of Wipe Out works.More
