Roast Beef/Ham/Turkey or Corned Beef nearest Union Square

If it's casual dining with great value for either Roast Beef/Ham/Turkey or Corned Beef nearest Union Square then stroll on over to the veritable Lefty O'Doul's on Geary. It's relaxed, quick and good value for the money. The meats a fresh and good quality always a happy dining experience.

It takes at least one visit to find out how it all works but it's a great experience and if you're a sports fan it's a must visit! Give it a try.

We went to Lefty's hoping for some good bar food and a beverage. The waitress was not very interested in serving us. The meat was tough and stringy but the sides were okay. The ambiance was typical for a bar so no complaints there. We won't go back.

We enjoyed a few drinks sitting at the Bar after returning from dinner in Chinatown (you can eat at Lefty O'Doul's too) ... the music was great and the Barman was fast and cheerful! We would visit again next time we are in San Francisco.

I was a little taken back by the dated setting. Let's face it, it's old. I looked past that though, because I like unique. I choose a turkey dinner meal which is served cafeteria style. You chose your sides. The side offerings were adequate. The meal was very tasty, and hot. There was a Giants baseball game on which I... More

An Irish / Baseball themed restaurant. It has a great atmosphere and good plain wholesome tasty food. Good sized portions at a very reasonable price. A good find in the city centre.
