Food was very good, good prices. Service, ok Waitress not very attentive, only took order and gave us the check. Never brought us the food, never check on us, etc. Would have gladly given the tip to the gentleman that did everything.

On a sunny morning around the corner from the Cliff House, this inn's restaurant was the only place that I found open open for breakfast...you can see the wind-swept coastal trees and the Pacific Ocean from the tables by the window. Service was very good but my food was just average...good poached eggs with A-1 sauce, but mediocre toast --seemingly... More

I've loved every inch of the food from here. Just a delicous restaurant, it was a nice find in the ancient San Francisco.

We were in 2 persons, asked dor a gyros and a grecian salad. The salad is huge and the gyros was good as well. They serve mainly breakfasts and sandwiches but habe a nice seaview.

There was a long line for the upstairs eating area so we went downstairs and were seated immediately. I am not sure what the difference was (menu, price?), but we enjoyed our food. We all had salads which were moderate in size but delicious. Our server was new but was not around much. We had a delicious lunch but it... More

This place reminds me of an old fashioned diner, with a large menu, all things are ok, but nothing is great! The best part about it is you can park in the hotel that the restaurant is part of, so you aren't wasting time looking for a parking space. They serve everything from salads to hamburgers to eggs, to just... More

Quaint little restaurant attached to the inn. Parking is tight and small underneath the inn but it's free and first come, first serve. Meals are good and service is nice. After breakfast it is a short walk to Sutro baths and Cliff House or Eagle Point trail. So this is a good place to fuel up first.

Short and sweet...S.F. is known for its' great restaurants. This is definitely not one of them. If you don't want to try a better breakfast place, just hit McDonalds. Just as good and cheaper.

Simple spot for breakfast or lunch near Seal Rock. Food was good and wait staff was efficient. Not at all fancy and prices were reasonable.

We stopped in for breakfast and had some omelets. The 3 of us each trying a different type. All 3 were delicious. This ended up being one of the best meals we had while in San Francisco. Don't let the exterior/interior scare you. It's a nice friendly place with good food. Would definitely go again.
