Loved the fast service. Excellent fish tacos and French dip. Happy hour prices for drinks! Convenient location.

I was one of the very first customers on the first day that this establishment opened its doors to the public. The food was good and the service was equally as good, but nothing brag about. I used to frequent this restaurant 3-4 times per month but stopped going there in mid-2013 because the food wasn't as good as it... More

Liked the burgers, not so much the fried sprouts. Some what noisy. Convenient to the hotel. Average.

Super fast...polite..low delivery fee. Great Wedge Salad....Good soup. Lack of staff in the morning left us looking for wait staff. Breakfast food was great despite the wait.

I was staying in the hotel by this place and it was always busy and full of people. The food was really good and the drinks were too. The service was good and it is really close to many areas in San Francisco like Chinatown and Little Italy.

I was accompanied on my trip by a colleague who has no tolerance for 'mixed foods', only eats beef well done, hates any vegetables and only eats potato, no pasta or rice. We and several others had lunch in the Elephant & Castle on 3 occasions. Its a great pub with the usual high standard of the US equivalent of... More

Just besides the Clubquarters hotel, a nice simple restaurant. You can go there for a drink or to eat something. Everybody is very nice.

This is an Irish Pub style restaurant attached to the Club Quarters Hotel, but also open to the street. Staying in the attached hotel, I did find myself here a few nights for dinner and/or drinks. The food was alright, the burger was clearly not handmade (preformed patties), but cooked well and overall was average. The fries one were overcooked,... More

Great pub food and service. Handy door through to the hotel. Nothing bad to say. Food and drink can be added to your room bill

I hate panning places, but how hard is it to make a decent burger?! It got a preformed patty, on a day old brioche and a handful of fries. Come on. Don't be fooled by the pictures. The rest of the place was also pre-fabricated to look like a London pub. But pubs in London do not look like that.... More
