We stopped in for a beer and felt like we walked into an irish version of 'Cheers'! The patrons and especially the employees were hilarious! My husband and I met people from all over the world while sitting at the bar and really enjoyed the down to earth atmosphere of the bar. One of the memorable parts of our trip... More

Fun place to have a beer or a drink and good economic food, cooked freshly. Very good value even for breakfast instead of paying $30 or $40 for breakfast at your hotel just go to O'Douls and have a good breakfast for a fraction of the cost, as long as you don't mind the ambiance with a Pub-type of place...

This place is cool if you like old school bars that open early and everyone in there is up for a good yarn - hopefully you'll get Chuck as your bartender-if you tip handsomely they ring the bell !!

Who doesn't love a good Irish pub that also serves good food? Even though we were only in SF for 2 days, this became our "go to" pub where we we enjoyed more than just a pint.

My wife and I got here around 9pm on a sunday. The place was still busy but the carver station was open and the products fresh/ My wife got the turkey dinner and I got Prime rib. Both were quite good - especially for the price (about 20 bucks each) My mom ordered a pastrami sandwich, but got corned beef.... More

I was not totally impressed with this place. The food was ok and it is more of a bar type atmosphere. I don't think that I will be coming back to this place.

We were delighted to find this irish bar right next to the Hotel we were staying at and there seemed a nice atmosphere there when we 1st arrived. We spent a bit of time here during our visit to S.F. and we enjoyed a few drinks and some meals with them, but were disappointed that we encountered 2 of the... More

Decent food, drinks, TV to watch sport and a spot of live singing. The prices were good too, we had a pitcher of beer, some chilli and a great turkey sandwich.
