Good food with excellent bay view

Make sure you get a window table for a nice view at Alcatraz, the bay or the sea lions. Dinner was good, fresh crab and meat dishes. Prices are somewhat high, but the location is fantastic.

Arrived at 8pm without a reservation. When told it was a 90 minute wait, we opted for an open table in the bar area. Wait staff was quick and attentive (which is the only reason it got an extra mark.) Prices are high considering there's no salad, side, or even bread. One dish was missing the scallops that should have... More

Went there after long sightseeing walk. Had no reservation but being given nice place with Alcatraz and Golden Gate view. Sword fish steak was recommended to us as favourite choice and it was really delicious. But fish and chips and hamburger too. Very positive and patient waiter. Try it if you are on Pier 39 !

The view of the bay is great. I started with mussels which were good with a delicious sauce. But was disappointed with the seafood platter. While the shrimp wa tasty, the white fish and scallops were tasteless and "mushy"...I think a bit over cooked. And the price for that dinner was way too high! Go there for a drink and... More

This is a very nice restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf. It is right on the water and boasts a nice view of the boats, Alcatraz, and the sea lions (depending on where you sit). The wait staff was very nice and professional. The food excellent, and the price was decent. Not overly crowded. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Fabulous location. Beautiful views. Nice inside, but aging (not so gracefully), sticky tables, needs a deep cleaning. Friendly, professional servers. Nice people. Terrible value. Five limp prawns on a bed of browning mesclun mix cost $16. Cup of seafood bisque ($8) is watery, orange (?), cheesy tasting, and has an oily sheen to it. The only "lobster" in it was... More

Had lunch at Neptunes whilst visiting the area with friends. We choose to eat here basis the location, and views - which are really nice. The food and service was pretty good but the furnishings were a little dated. Perhaps it was a little overpriced but I guess you are paying for the location more than anything else. This venue...

Bad food, very bad service and horrendous prices! Waiter forgot about everything, I had to remind him twice to bring my beverage, a Corona, can this be that diffucult, a Corona??? Soup was not hot and fried seafood platter, tasteless and boring, served with whitish looking underfried french fries. You could not eat much worse. The view was absolutely fantastic!... More

I stopped at Pier 39 when i had time to kill before a flight, and a craving for seafood. I chose Neptune at the end of the pier, and im glad i did. Views from inside were amazing, and service was great. The meal was pricey ($50) but thats what you get in that location. I had an excellent bloody... More
