Good Draft Beers

Solid beer list, near the ballpark. Why go into ATT early and pay $11.50/beer when you can sit outside at Paragon and have $6.25 drafts? They have about 10 beers on tap, including Stone and Lagunitas, though there is a shortage of stouts and porters. The chicken wing and mushroom appetizers are... read more

$200 for pasta and clams for four and the pasta was over cooked and stuck together. The drinks were below average at above average prices. Good pre game atmosphere but there are many places that cater to the pre game crowd.

We dined here before the Giants game last night. After waiting 30+ min, we were seated outside. Unfortunately, there were only three stools so one of us had to stand. The hostess apologized and said we'd have to grab a stool after a patron got up and left - not a great start to our dinner. We wondered if someone... More

Definitely a bit pricey but great atmostphere and food. The mac & cheese was ok and the mexican street corn was the best i've ever had. Wings and burger were also good.

Came here for early dinner before Giant's game. Opens at 5:00pm so easily out before 7;00 pm game & only 1 block to AT &T. Nice, industrial atmosphere & seating outside. Full bar & lots of craft beer choices. Split calamari appetizer. Chopped Caesar tasty as were beef sliders. Mussels in saffron super! Waiter was attentive. Chicken wings nothing spectacular....

Stopped in for a dinner after a great show....wow...they had this Corn chowder and bbq pork soup.....that was a game changer! We all had the soup and loved it, and all of our dinners were great (I had fried chicken) but the soup was really out of this world. Prices were reasonable, place wasn't at all crowded, and I'm glad... More

It has been a few years since I ate here and things appear to have changed. I had dinner here a few years ago and I remember a more elegant looking white tablecloth restaurant. My most recent visit was for lunch and the white table clothes have been replaced with old-fashioned wooden table and all the servers are youngsters so... More

Went here today before the Giants game to eat. Nothing great but decent enough to eat at. Got a beer with burger and friends.

Stopped in here on way to Giants game. Ordered a couple of apps and drinks. Food was ok but very pricey for what you get. The alcohol was even more costly. A double of captain and coke will run you $22.50... Service was good though.

Only a block away from the ballpark, Paragons is a nice choice for a bite to eat or drink before or after giant games. It is always crowded and fun with people coming and going to the game.Try the mussels.It is a little pricey but beats the ball park for food value.They have a wonderful bar and it is always... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
