What a great place. Had the chance to sit and refresh for an hour or so. She doesn't really like browsing while I'm at heel, because she feels rushed. So I just kicked back awhile and enjoyed. Great view of the bay from the Pub. Right on Beach street in the middle of G Square. Tasty appetizers and good cold... More

Was in Ghiradelli Square to see Xmas decorations over the weekend. Stopped in the Pub to get some lunch. Best bloody mary's and amazing food. We had the dynamic duo (choice of two meats) with fried chicken and the brisket. Fun place to rest our feet and enjoyed the service and meal.

This was the first place we had food when we arrived in the city after an 11 hour flight from the UK. I found The Pub after doing a little research online and it looked promising. It was a saturday night so I thought it'd be best to book online prior to our arrival but little did i know; the... More

I am a local girl who like many, live in the city and work at the Wharf. So, for me it's nice to be able to hit a location that reminds me of a neighborhood joint. The Pub fits the bill rather nicely. BBQ is a personal favorite, so naturally when I'm getting a craving for pulled pork, brisket or... More

This was our first meal the evening we arrived in town as hungry tourists. With two teenagers we didnt want anything too adventurous, just some good food. The Pub delivered what we needed. The tater tots appetizer was a fun treat to start the meal. I got the ribs, which was four meaty “St. Louis style” ribs which were tasty... More

My husband and I both ordered hamburgers with fries. We were delighted! The burgers tasted like they had really been cooked over charcoal. We also sat outside and enjoyed the views of the bay.

Order the brisket! The Pub has a great vibe, and friendly service. The brisket was the beat that I've had in a long time. If you are in the area, stop in!

We all really enjoyed the brisket here. It was tender if not overly smoky. Great spot to watch the niners play. Try the Mac and cheese and tots.

Happened in on an off season Tuesday. It was not busy. We had great service, street parking was easy, waitress recommended the BBQ but it isn't often that you see fried chicken on the menu so went with that. It was greasy and a bit bitter so it was a strike. Corn side was excellent, Mac side was soft and... More
