The hostess was not very present, we almost left but decided the pier side view was worth taking a chance. The service was alright, friendly but everyone seemed in a hurry. The food was, you guessed it, alright. Three stars for our servers 1 star for the hostess

HORRIBLE service! Seriously not worth the hassle- we had a waitress that was snide and super unhelpful. The food really wasn’t anything to write about - I feel like we missed trying a really cool place when we ate here

We enjoyed this place as it was between the ferry building and Pier 39 yet it does have the tourist feel most of the others have on this stretch. They have an outside beer garden and deck to enjoy an ice cold beer.

Great place that’s always buzzy. We had a booking outdoors given how great the weather was.
Shared a couple of oysters and had tuna as a main.
Service was very slow but food was tasty.

Had the clam and fish chowder, was just so so and my girlfriends had a hair in it. We shared the ceasar salad which wasn't the greatest. Best thing about the meal was the garlic French fries. Wouldn't recommend.
