First off there were 4 of us. The waitress brought us all warm water with no ice. We ordered and she didn't write anything down. I ordered a chicken quesadilla with no green peppers, it came filled with green peppers. She never came back so I picked out the peppers and ate half of it until I started to get... More

On the corner of Polk and ???, this place is loud, but you can find a quiet corner if you try. The sandwich was the best pulled pork I believe I have had. It was tasty, but it also was tender, not stringy, not fatty, and just great! A fun place; wish I had had more time to try a... More

This may not be the best place for weekend Brunch. It's a "sports bar" of sorts and if quiet was what I was looking for, this wasn't the place. But hey, parking, I was in. Had the Fried Egg Breakfast sandwich and thankfully it was "Hot" (not hot food my biggest pet peeve). But the amount of grease on and... More

Came here to watch the MN Vikings on a Sunday morning. Very crowded, but I don't mind waiting a little longer to sit down as long as I can still see the game! Had some beers, nachos, and french toast (during brunch hours). The nachos were outstanding with pulled pork on them!

Bell Tower is a neighborhood place with a great bar crowd. The Sunday Brunch was fantastic-- with tall mimosas and spicy bloody mary's. This place is all SF and a great place to grab some food and drink... good prices and entertaining staff.

We went there because of the recommendation of our hotel which was just around the corner. I had the most perfect food of my whole America-trip at The Bell Tower. Try the mushroom ravioli! The service was good, very friendly and decent. The prices are reasonable. I wanted to come again, but we changed our hotel so it wasn't in... More

Little known fact about The Bell Tower, they have fantastic short-ribs! Visiting friends while on a business trip, a rare thing happened… my most finicky friend got a hankering for BBQ ribs. They thought of only one spot – Bell Tower. Who knew? I agreed and went, and the place was bursting at the seams. Seems that others have found... More

We moved from NY to SF in May 2012. As an avid Minnesota Viking fan I wanted to find a bar where I could watch the games and found the Bell Tower. Not only is the atmosphere awesome on Sunday morning football days but the people (bartenders, waiters, patrons) are all just good people. We were readily accepted into the... More

I visited The Bell Tower with my family and we had a great three course dinner for around $200. We had steaks and seafood for entrees and they were all very good. A mistake was made with one of the meals but the staff were very apologetic and a replacement meal was quickly brought out and a dessert was on... More
