I waited to get dinner on the 4th of July until 6pm. I was desperate to find something open for most restaurants were closed so I headed to Ghiradelli Square because the crowd was gathering for the concerts and fireworks. Lori's happened to have a counter stool open. The penne pasta I ordered was pretty good but it took a... More

Kids absolutely loved it. The furnishing, the background music, the menu. I liked it - portions were huge & beer was cold. My "popcorn shrimp" was pretty uninspiring but filled a gap after long day sight seeing. It's a great location with great views. I am pleased we went because we had fun

50's themed atmosphere with good sandwiches, burgers, and vanilla cokes. Beautiful view of the bay while you dine. Good service, clean atmosphere, and outdoor dining available.$78 (includes tip) for a family of four, four meals, four drinks, no appetizers. Pricing is in line or better than average for the area.

We were a family of four adults. The menu was quite diverse and we ordered fried chicken,a burger, a salad and a cheese & ham sandwich with fries. The service was very good and most of the food was good quality. I was disappointed with the cheese and ham sandwich which was quite tiny and rather ordinary. One other gripe... More

After a busy day walking around SF we we're just looking for something to eat at a reasonable price. Food was basically frozen supermarket food fried or cooked some other way. The pictures on the menu do not resemble in any way what is delivered on the plate. Reasonable price, ok, I'll give them that, but quality, no way! Place... More

Dropped in here for breakfast having seen it the night before. Great location, overlooking San Francisco Bay. It's a diner, and it does what it says on the tin. Fun atmosphere, fast, pleasant servers, really good food. Well worth a visit.

Were staying at the nearby Holiday Inn and saw this place while out on a morning stroll. Quirky, good views across the bay, and decent breakfast menu. My partner was feeling lousy and just wanted something bland/plain, the waitress provided a selection of toast on different breads which was just the job. I had an omelette with extra bacon &...

The restaurant is nicely decorated to be like a 50's diner. We went for an early lunch, it wasn't very busy but the service was really slow. If you're in a hurry, I wouldn't recommend it. Food was pretty good, recommend the chicken strips and their shakes. They also have old fashion soda which is fun. Location is great, right... More

Lori's is the best traditional diner in San Francisco. I know Fog City Diner is good, but it is more of a high end restaurant than a diner. Lori's servers all the traditional fare, but my favorite time of day to go there is in the morning for breakfast. The 900 N Point Location is right in Ghirardelli Square and... More

The style of the restaurant and its view over the bay are worth a visit. However... Ordered their signature burger medium done with fries and got an overcooked piece with burned bacon and sweet potatoe fries. My daughter had pasta, which was overcooked, too. It came with a salad that should be 1.95, but appeared on the bill as 6,95.... More
