This place was a favourite when we visited. All sorts of options for toppings on a large jacket spud from healthy veg to sour cream & cheese. What seemed at first to be a regular take out place, this was a great find and the boys found it to have cheap beer!

Raining outside, a nice hot baked potato with all the fixin's is just right. Have a hot baked potato any way you like them. And if you want a salad, they have those too! Also their specialty desserts such as a sweet potato brownie, or burnt rice pudding, and cheesecake. Just a couple walking minutes from the wharf. Excellent service,... More

Have had jacket potatoes in many places, decided to try this based on the reviews. Excellent idea! Potato is great. Delicious. Yummy. And all that. If you're looking for a quick stop, reasonable price and good food, then this may be the place. At, salads are also great.

All the ingredients of our potato and salad were incredibly fresh and flavoursome. As you can select all your own veggies/meat for salads and potatoes it makes this place great for everyone. Really clean and friendly atmosphere here and as well as a huge range of ingredients for salad and potato filling they had a large range of drinks too.... More

Basically, it is a Baked Potato in its Jacket, eat-in/take away, fast food restaurant. There are stacks of fillings to choose from. There are also lots of salads that can be had. Soft drinks and beer also available. Prices were reasonable, staff friendly, service quick. And it is positioned very close to Pier 39 on the Wharf. Actually, I am... More

What would you expect from a place called Hot Spud. I ate there once and had a baked potato with cheese, chicken and a couple of other things. It was ok. Wasn't rushing to go back, but no real complaints about it.

Stumbled across this restaurant just round the corner from my hotel and like a previous reviewer, needed a change from burgers and clam chowder in sourdough bread (quality of which varied considerably around town). I had their potato with crab, spring onions, sweetcorn, cheese, mayo and it was one of the best meals I had in SF, really nicely prepared... More

We just wanted something light one evening after a busy day, this was around the corner from The Sheraton. You could have what you wanted on your potato eat in or take away, staff where helpful we opted too eat in also served wine which added to the meal.

Perfect change from burgers and sourdough bowls. Really reasonable, lovely fresh food and the staff were really friendly. Always seemed quiet which is a shame, we had takeout and it was really nice. It may not look very fancy but the food is great!
