“Best Irish Coffee Ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

This bar and restaurant is a must item on your to do list in San Francisco.
It has a friendly and quaint atmosphere and the Irish Coffees are to die for and a great treat for any weary traveler. Stop by this watering hole for sure and eat, drink and be merry in SF.

“The name says it all, it has a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

As the name implies, the view of the San Francisco bay cannot be beaten. The Irish Coffees are pretty good too. The bartenders are great and can definitely chat you up if you'd like.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

The duck tour driver had said that this place sells more Irish coffee than most places in Ireland. You can get an Irish coffee elsewhere for half the price, but it isn't the same. The best Irish coffee we had ever had, served by bartenders in white jackets in a classy historic tavern/
