Not a fan of meat but I loved it! A 4.5 score

We visited this restaurant on December 30th with our kids. I am a vegetarian but I chose this place for it's views and because I knew my meat eating family would enjoy it. When we first got there I was impressed by the view; however I was a little disappointed when I found out the only table... read more

There is only average or very good to choose on Trip Advisor but this place was good. On a quiet wet weekday there were few customers. The waitress was fairly inattentive and had to be chased a few times but the visit was rescued by fish tacos that tasted right and a delightful beer. Mirror Pond Pale Ale - Deschutes... More

We stopped at The Pub for dinner and the staff was immediately welcoming and very friendly. They were incredibly patient as my teenage children decided what they wanted to eat. We ordered the pulled pork, fish and chips, buffalo Mac and cheese and the truffle Mac and cheese. Everything was wonderful!! There was not a bad dish among us, and... More

Enjoyed a meal here at The Pub. Meals were very generous. Thought the pulled meat sauce would have been better served in a jug rather than over the meat. Plenty of atmosphere with the TVs on all different sports. If within walking distance of your accommodation, would recommend.

Ended up in here for a bit to eat mid afternoon. My husband had the bbq burger and i had a bowl of chilli. The food was spot on and the service was great. The waitress couldnt do anymore for us and even offered to help out if we needed to know where to visit in SF

We really enjoyed the Pub and it is a very welcome break from the tourist chaos of Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39. The food is very good with a good selection of burgers, BBQ food, and go ‘comfort’ style food. It also has a late night menu however, we have not tried this. Plus it has a good view of... More

It's an upscale Sports bar on Ghirardelli Square. Specializes in BBQ. We had what the menu called "The Kitchen Sink" - a kind of BBQ stew chock full of home made hot-links, smoked turkey, brisket and a whole leg and thigh of chicken on top and no added carbs. The night was chilly and this was the perfect concoction. Service... More

We were served initially by the greeter as the waitress was pre-occupied. We had the pulled pork and St. Louis ribs with beers whilst watching a Sunday night football game (new to me as I’ve never watched American football before, only rugby). Food was v. good and service was ok. We did struggle to get the waitress’ attention at the... More
