Check out the sea

You will see good crowd here on the weekends and lots of food places to try. A must to check out is magnet shops.

Just planned to have some nice fish and lobster and enjoy the view as 25 years ago. But very busy, cheap tourists and expensive bad food you had to queue for. Left it asap and found a nice Indian restaurant innerland at walking distance, much better.

This is a must if visiting San Francisco - enough food outlets to satisfy everybody's likes - numerous nik nak shops but disappointed that so many sell goods made in china - I wanted locally made goods to take home

The walk along the Wharf remains fun and interesting but is dominated by small shops selling all kinds of tourist items. It is on the way to and from the cable cars but is not the marvel it was in the past.

I admit to not being too interested in the Wharf at first, but we had some great seafood at a few of the restaurants. We really enjoyed touring the old submarine and Navy ship. Getting to see how cramped life was on these ships made me appreciate our service members even more! My husband enjoyed the arcade with pinball machines... More
