This is the best totally hidden place you will ever find. If someone didn't show it to me I would have never seen it. There's no signage or markings of any kind outside the building. You need to know where the door is. If you can find it, I guarantee you will love it. The food is fantastic and staff... More

When traveling we like to visit places where the locals go. Staying at the Coventry Motor Inn the desk clerk suggested Brazen Head. What a nice place it was, a homey feeling while being many miles from home.

We had dinner here a year or so ago. Found ourselves in the Marina area, late, and I think we Yelped it. Really don't remember how we found it, but were so glad we did! The atmosphere was vintage English pub and so was the food. It was delicious, and seems that our family party of five got out for... More

We stopped in here one night on our vacation to have a couple of drinks. What a GREAT place! The bar tender, servers, and host were all very friendly and personable. Listening to people at the bar you could tell this was a locals kind of place. They made a GREAT Manhattan! The food menu looked great...next time we will... More

If you can find something you like on the menu (which shouldn't be too hard), you will regret not visiting this lovely little restaurant.

Location (across the street from the Capri motel), ambience, service and menu are all great. I don't have any complaints whatsoever.

We were staying just down the road, and we were told, 'perfect bar to have an affair in' since it's a neighbourhood bar and they don't advertise out the front! So we went in and had a couple of drinks and were simply impressed by this well done bar. Think hardwood interior, good commingling of diners and bar patrons areas,... More

The food was very good, known for their steaks, the service was quick. We were staying at the Coventry Motor Inn and they recommended this restaurant which was right around the corner, one block from the Coventry Motor Inn. It had no name on the outside but was told that the food was good and they were right. The tables... More

I've never been treated so rudely by a bartender, and I'm 50! Older guy with a beard I think. Unfortunately, have loved this place for 20 years but won't be back. Am a Bay Area native and have lived in SF for 20 years. Am a nice, normal person. Girls' night on Sat. night before Saint Patty's. One friend ordered... More

Here is the place to meet good quality people that have good jobs. Very good food. I have been going there ever since it opened. Excellent, cheaper than you can buy and make yourself. Everyone I know has met their husbands and wife there. If you are alone, you can go there and sit at the bar and make friends... More
