This was a really busy restaurant, but we sat at the bar, so we didn't have to wait. Ordered beer and lunch, beer was cold, food was great, staff was very attentive, and fun to talk with.

We just walked in while vacationing in San Fran, looked good. If you love seafood, come here and gorged yourself on a platter of lobster, oysters, shrimp, calamari, crab legs. Oh my goodness, my husband and I just dove into all this seafood. Completely satisfied.

We have had lots of clam chowder in our trips to SF but this place is the best. Staff so friendly and helpful as well. Great stuff! Thanks.

It looked like just any of the other places along fishermans wharf - about the same fare... we decided to have lunch indoors. Not worth the money. Bland and boring.More
