Good atmosphere and food

With a lovely view of fisherman's wharf, this place is cozy pub worth checking out. Some of the food maybe pricey but definitely good food for the price and the scenery.

I was in the area waiting for someone and dropped in for a bite to eat. I didn't expect much but generic tourist pub food and I could not have been more surprised. Good selection of beers and top quality BBQ. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.

Wanted to eat somewhere simple and straightforward, and this pub gave me what I needed. Food is what you'd expect - not haute cuisine but perfectly acceptable and good size portions. I was sat at the bar and enjoyed watching the comings and goings, and the basketball on the large TVs. Beer was very good and service was just fine.

Stopped here for a late dinner. The whole menu is bar food. The burger and tater tots came out super fast and were perfect! The sweet and sour tater tots are a must try! They have a kids menu and are pretty big portions.

Found this pub hiding behind other outlets on the bay side of Ghirarelli Sq. Prices looked good so went in hoping for the best. Staff were struggling with the amount of customers and seemed offish. Food ordered and when it arrived taste was great, beef in wine came with Mac and cheese and sprouts, all good but still not getting... More

My husband and I are KU Jayhawk fans. The Big 12 tournament was happening in Kansas City while we were vacationing in San Francisco. I checked the KU Alumni website and The Pub was mentioned as the favorite local bar for KU fans in the SF area. We sought out this bar and loved it! It's a newer, cool bar... More

We arrived at our hotel late and asked for a recommendation for a quick bite and The Pub was the winner. We were able to walk over from our hotel and ordered a few burgers, a salad and a side of mac and cheese. Everything was great - food, beers and service. Not much on ambiance, but we were more...
