6 of us for lunch mid week. Great salads, huge burgers, super hot wings and all well cooked, good service. A really good local to drop in for some food or just a drink. Definitely worth trying if you are the vicinity.

This was the most hassle free and easiest, tastiest place in memory to have our holiday party with 45 guests. Servers were attentive and not intrusive. We also enjoyed the fact that we weren't rushed out of their with a cut-off... More

My husband and I had not realised it was Thanksgiving and that most restaurants and shops are closed that day. So I was glad to be able to get a reservation online for dinner. The set price seemed reasonable at first. However the meal, even though it was nice, was not worth the price. Added to that 2 glasses of... More

I come here a lot as I live close by. The beer selection is amazing and the service is outstanding. Decent price point and bbq night on Wednesdays mixes things up!

I have to say I was disappointed. They got a little too creative with the concept of a waldorf salad and turned it into waldorf soup.

I guess I didn't expect great things meeting our daughter for lunch at an outdoor table here, near ATT Park. But we were pleasantly surprised by the taste and freshness of the food, the good unobtrusive service, and the easygoing willingness of our waiter to guide my gluten free wife through the choices. For my part, the Gem Waldorf salad... More

Stopped in on our way to a S.F. Giants game and had a very pleasant respite. Very tasty drinks try the Basil Lemonade! The service is friendly and efficient the atmosphere energenic. We had some snacks Mushroom cigars, and ribs are good but the Macaroni and cheese is amazing a must try believe me!

My girlfriend got the Grilled Cheese sandwich, which was made with artisan bread, and tasted great. I got the burger, and ate every last piece of it. The prices for the food are a little high, but worth it. Great place to hang out during the baseball games also. Great environment. Service was A+
