Food was ok, location was convenient

We found a coupon on the back of a map of Fisherman's Wharf so we decided to check it out. We were glad we had a coupon. There was a sign inside the door that said

4 of us ate here and were dissapointed with our burger, surfer melt's, and popcorn chicken. My sufermelt (a tune melt) has burnt tuna salad as part of the sandwich and was overall substandard. The other items were mediocre at best. The service was not good either and included being given the wrong bill intiatially. San Francisco is filled with... More

It was a nice ending to a day trip. Good deals and the food was really good. However, the bathrooms were out of a Lovecraft nightmare.

I am not one to walk out of a place.. but my friend had done her research and wanted to eat here for their breakfast all day. Turns out "all day" was until 11:30 AM. We were there at 6pm.. On a Friday. And there was only 1-2 other people there. That alone was a red flag! The menu was... More

In a city that takes pride in it's food, Lori's is a big disappointment. Everything we had was frozen, and tasted like it. In a city where there are SO many great restaurants, this was a disappointment. I remember that the food was much better years ago. 1 point for the food, another for the view, but that's it. The...

To start off I'm rounding up on the 3 out of 5 possible. This place really deserves a 2 1/2 in my opinion. View is nice, location I think can't be beat, though service was lackluster, and the food quality was so so. My son had pancakes with sausage, bacon and a side scrambled egg. His pancakes were ok, sausage... More

This diner has a great location in the Ghirardelli complex, so some tables have excellent views of the Bay. That was what I wanted, so I didn't mind that the food was just average. In a city with amazing sourdough bread, I was expecting more from my sandwich. That and the coleslaw were very like what I've had at chains... More

The best think about Lori's diner is that it is open 24 hours. There are a couple of locations downtown. There is usually a small wait. Our waitress basically ignored us for about 20 minutes until I was ready to get up and walk out. I had the open roast beef sandwich and probably would have been better breaking out... More

This is a 50's retro joint with a great view of the Bay but the red decor may give some a headache After a week in SF, you cannot stand the thought of another big meal so we chose Lori's. for a small meal with cherry cokes. The food was average and the service was average but it hit the... More
