This place is full of it. It's our second time here. None of the stuff they made for Guy Fieri is on the menu or ever was. They don't want to be bothered with tourists - despite being a tourist trap, but I'm sure they can't afford their shack without them, so they compromise by being snotty. I have, in... More

Saw this spot on Guy Fieri show on our way to San Francisco, so planned it into our trip. The clam chowder was meh ok. It was on the thin side and lacking flavor. I forgot what the other 2 in my party..I forgot what they had but they also gave it mediocre rating. If you can't remember it...it's not... More

I was looking forward to eating here because my husband saw Pier 23 on DDD. We arrived around 11:20. They open @ 11:30. We waited at the bar. Felt a little awkward since we didn't want a drink. The view was great when we got seated. Our waitress acted like she didn't want to be there. The food was fine.... More

Great seafood and a beautiful spot to spend a sunny afternoon. They sometimes have bands in the evenings, but my favorite is to sit out back and borrow a straw hat on a sunny day.

After a long day of sightseeing we decided to see if we could just get some food to takeout. They were very accommodating and quick with out order. I had the shrimp and crab sandwich and it was delicious and plentiful. I thought the price was very reasonable for the quality and quantity of our meal. I'd like to go... More

My husband had the seared tuna on sourdough and I had the crab cakes, both exceptional! Had the privilege of watching the America's Cup while dining. Busy spot with good prices for excellent food!

My wife and I stopped into Pier 23 having just seen the place on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. After a short wait, we were seated on the back patio overlooking the water and Alcatraz Island. We started with the fried calamari having seen the table next to us eat theirs. It was crispy, seasoned well, and one of the... More
