Our hotel didn't have a dine-in breakfast option but this was right across the street from the Westin St. Francis. Exactly what we were looking for: eggs, sausage, hash browns, and of course, bloody marys. If that is what you're expecting, that's what you'll get.

We on a Saturday - so they were busy. Good food you order over the counter as you go through a line. We split a pastrami sandwich which was great AND the Mac & Cheese was awesome. Definitely go back again.

Sports Bar with great restaurant section. Breakfast is waitress served at tables. Lunch and dinner are buffet line. Great food, large portions, reasonable prices and bar drinks. Perfect!

We had breakfast here and whilst it was OK it was nothing special and the greeter had firm ideas about where SHE wanted to seat us -not where we wanted to be .The fact that it has been here for years says that it is very popular so it has to be doing something right but I think the location...

Always visit Lefty's whenever in town. True SF experience whether it's after a Giants game or just a visit to Union Square. Delicious food, great drinks and very reasonable prices. The clam chowder hit the spot for this visit.

Drop in here on a whim. Had the roast beef with cabbage and a cucumber salad. Everything was excellent, especially the cucumber salad. Nice cozy environment. With a good bar and live music in the corner. Lots of sports memorabilia around the walls. Would recommend it to anyone.

Not Having been here in many years but still has the charm and a great place to visit. They even had Coors Light on draft which is a very big plus for me. Good service by the friendly waitress. The only bad thing the day we visited were all these men gathered at the end of the bar not allowing... More

We were passing by, on our way to Tommy's Joynt, when we came across this very fine eatery & drinking establishment. They were serving, not only their special of the day - T~giving meal, but bits & pieces of their regular menu as well. I decided to get the special of the day and my better half decided on a...

My amigo and I stopped in to have an Irish coffee while the ladies went shopping in Union Square. The smell of the hofbrau was amazing, and the ambience of the bar was old school San Francisco. We shared our bar access with another couple that came up behind us to order drinks, and the husband turned out to be... More
