Neptune's Waterfront Grill

Fantastic food. We had Kim Chee calamari which was wonderful. Crispy crust, minimal sauce on top. Also tried the soup trio, consisting of clam chowder, gaspacho, and lobster bisque. All three were terrific. Artichoke, not so good.Could have cooked a bit longer. Waitress was great.

We called earlier that morning to make a reservation for a Sunday afternoon. They answered the phone right away and were very pleasant. We arrived a little early and they sat us right away. We requested a view of the sea lions and had an awesome seat. Our reservation was at 12:30 and we were almost the only ones there.... More

When I am in San Francisco I always like to visit this place for lunch, partly because of the views over the bay and to Alcatraz. The food was great as always, with the coconut shrimp and fish stuffed with Dungeness crab. I love the casual atmosphere, but with great service. Full marks!

Best mushroom sandwich I've ever had, good selection of beers and an attentive bar man. Would have got 4 stars if it weren't for rather stinky toilets.

Stopped in for lunch as we wandered through Fisherman's Wharf / Pier 39. Was told there was a 30 minute wait for a table although the restaurant was nearly empty but there was room in the bar. We sat down at a table quite a bit for someone (anyone would do) to come over to the table, although the bar... More

I had a burger and the wife had Fish Tacos for the first time ever for lunch. We both liked what we got. The food is quality and the price seems fair for the area. We had a table facing the bay. This is a very good view restaurant. They do have a coupon that guarantees you seat with a... More

Very good restaurant, and a great location on the Pier. The patio covered views are really worth price of admission.
