Piano bar is not to be missed. Just fun group sing- along. Around the corner from the St. Francis Hotel.

A legend! Great food near Union Square. Love the Reuben sandwich. Large bar area with many beers on tap. Prices are reasonable. Would highly recommend it.

We always go here to eat at least once on our visits to San Francisco. We also hang out there in the evening for the piano bar. Good food, very entertaining and great atmosphere. I highly recommend it. Get there early it fills up quickly.

We sat down and the waitress showed up and took our order. We were having fun until the waitress came back later in the night and... More

Went to this cavernous place for breakfast on our first day in SF. I get the impression that the dazed, famished, tourist may be the customer they are pitching for. The food and service were pretty basic and nothing to make you want go back, so we didn't. If you get enough one time customers, I guess it'll keep you... More

We stopped in with friends of ours for a drink and to check out the place. Bartender was sassy, helpful. Had good information about the bar and its history. Tried the famous Bloody Mary which was very good. Just had a drink didn't eat, but enjoyed the place.

My friend had a veggie omelet and raved about the potatoes. I had a standard eggs, bacon, toast. Very good Fast delivery of hot food. Lots of wait staff serving us and refilling our water... More

Well the beer was very tasty but the decor needs a little refreshing! if you need to enter the men's bathroom make sure you are prepared for the worst smell ever. It was close to the hotel and the beer was very cold.
