Glad we found it!

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... read 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

This place is more of a bar with good food than a restaurant. We had pulled pork, tater tots, corn cakes and mac & cheese. All of the food was good but portions are large. Price was average for area about $45 for 2. Nice location its at the end of Fisherman's Wharf area, so less people. It's connected to... More

Had the duo - ribs and fried chicken. The fried chicken was overly greasy and burnt. The ribs had so much fat I had to pull it apart and scrape through the layers. Nothing like the reviews or the images. They brought over a kids menu after we ordered and a water refill never came around. The blt wedge was... More

Stopped in for a late dinner sandwich after conference. Had a pulled pork plate that was really good with excellent sauce on the side. What was really outstanding was the side of Mac and cheese. Now I am not a Mac and cheese person but I had heard theirs was good so I got it as a side. Although the... More

We ended up going back to this place twice as the food was good and the prices were reasonable. I had the pulled pork sandwich and the Reuben which were both excellent. As we are on East coast time the portion size was just right for an evening meal - leaving enough room for a dessert from Ghiradelli's along the... More

When you think of San Francisco you think about seafood, but they also have really good BBQ. The hotel said you have to try The Pub BBQ, so looking for something different for lunch we thought what the heck. For lunch we started with the smoked chicken wings, man they hit the spot. For lunch I had the brisket, super... More

I was there on Saturday afternoon after my tour guide won me over recommending the Buffalo blue mac & cheese. I told the waitress that I was looking for a drink that was a little sweet but not too sweet and refreshing. She recommended the Moscow mule and it was exactly what I was looking for. Food wise I was... More
