Cheap/reasonably priced steak in a bar or restaurant maybe?

Hi

I'm just on my way into San Fran on my own on a work trip, and wondered if there is a good but cheap place to get a steak?

I'd rather go to a bar or casual place, as I will be eating by myself, so don't want to sit in a stuffy restaurant. I'm staying on Mason st, but can get public transport from there.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Ps; I've searched the forums but can't find much on steaks being served in bars?

I don't know your definition of "cheap" or "reasonable" but I think Izzy's might suit. It's a neighborhood steak house, very casual and if you like you can eat at the bar. Service is friendly and it's a neighborhood dining and watering hole.

It's in the Marina however, which is a 30 minute bus ride or 15 minute cab ride from Union Square.

Thanks, that looks ok, maybe if there is anything a little cheaper out there, or am I being unrealistic?

I don't think you will get good steak at better prices than that.

Sal suggested an excellent value priced steak house if you are interested in a real steak house meal.

If you just want a steak, why not go to Pinecrest diner which is in the Union Square area

SF has many places that serve steak but is not known for its steakhouses. More for its farm to table cuisines, for its Asian and Mexican food and for Italian restuarants. You can get a beef burrito meal for about 10 dollars in the Mission and that would include a Cerveza

Izzy is fairly reasonable for SF , also look at The Brazen Head, which is near Izzys and a little cheaper but its a small restaurant. Some restaurants offer early bird specials usually 5-6pm at discounted prices.

Also John Foleys Irish Pub-which is close to your hotel, they have steaks, but don't list their prices online.

If you are able to hang out in North Beach, Bottle Cap on Powell & Union has an excellent bar and I had a steak there not long ago. I like that they use seasonal ingredients, too, so the menu changes regarding sides and sauces. bottlecapsf.com/dinner-menu/dinner-menu-3/

check the special events part of the website for what they serve on Whiskey Wednesdays.

There is also a kitchen counter at Lark Creek Steak (at the Westfield San Francisco shopping center) where you can get a good steak and watch the chefs cook.

Yes. You are being unrealistic. Unless you want to hit up Tad's: http://www.tadssteaks-sf.com/
