We stumbled upon Fiddler's Green as we were walking back to the hotel from Ghirardelli Square one evening. I peeked in to see if they had Smithwick's, an Irish Ale I had been missing. To my pleasant surprise they did have it on tap and so what's a guy to do but to step in and have a pint. The... More

We stopped in had a couple pints of Guinness, the staff was friendly. It was late so was pretty empty but you could tell the place fills up and partys hard.

Had a good lunch here. The place is a bit run down and slightly divey...not a bad thing in my estimation...but the Irish srew was pretty good, the beer was cold, the prices were pretty good for SF, and the service was good.

Great guiness, good atmospher, very helpful lady behind bar, very busy - all to be expected on this day. It was fun watching the SFPD pay a call mid afternoon. We had a great day, met loads of like minded people and retunred to our hotel not too worse for wear. The following day we tried the shepherds pie and... More

I don't often review places but I've just had a shockingly bad experience in this bar. The place was deserted apart from one foul mouthed Englishman. My partner ordered a couple of ciders and paid with a 50 dollar note. The Scot behind the bar then said it was a ten and an awkward moment occurred. My partner was willing... More

We visited this bar 3 years ago and came back on our latest visit to San Francisco. Although the layout of the bar had changed (almost halved in size) the atmosphere and staff were still top drawer. The Guinness was great, they have the best chicken wings I'v etasted in San Fran. There is always a steady flow of customer... More

We went here for a drink one evening as I searched for a decent pint of guinness. And i definitley found it here. A great atmosphere with loads of people in, an irishman behind the bar and even Jameson's whiskey on tap. Well worth a visit.

A great bar with a great atmosphere. The 805 draught is really nice. Good sized portions of food. Michael the manager was very good and great customer service.

Not prone to bad reviews on TripAdvisor but making an exception for this place. $48 for 4 beers is extortion even if the bar offers a great vibe, which this one doesn't. Dreadful place and one to avoid. Not a fan of tourist areas when I'm holidaying but when I'm in those places I expect to pay a bit more.... More

This used to be a nice Irish pub located close to the Fisherman's Wharf area. Last time in Frisco - June 2016 found this to be closed. What a loss for the neighborhood.
