Lunch at Ghirardelli

Neat little place with great burgers and shakes and a great view of the bay/fisherman's wharf. Little high on the cost of a burger, but the quantifies were large and we didn't go away hungry. Really enjoyed the diner atmosphere too, '50's era motif.

Of all the places we ate, we thought Lori's Diner at Ghirardelli Square was the best quality vs. cost equation. We went to nice restaurants and mid-ranged ones during our trip, but Lori's hit that equation just right. The view from the Diner was fantastic as well, with a view of the Wharf, the Golden Gate, and the bay.

Stopped by for breakfast a two days in a row. Fantastic location in Ghirardelli Square with great views of the bay towards the bridge and Alcatraz. We had eggs and pancaces and all was good and plentiful. Attentive service and all was well!

The diner... More

I thought this would be a great diner to go to. I liked the adournments and thought it looked like a good 50's diner. My husband and I went for Sunday Breakfast.

For someone who grew up watching Happy Days and other 50's era TV shows this is such a fun place to eat. The food is good and reasonable too.
