Arrived here after a walk up from Pier 1, there was a street musician playing and he was very good. Enjoyed listening whilst I took a rest. There are also lots of fresh seafood available here as you would expect.

Fisherman's Wharf did not meet expectations. From the hype we thought it might be like Darling Harbour in Sydney Australia. No, it was a poor man's version.

We came here on our first day in San Francisco. While there were many restaurants, I find that restaurants with hawkers are always very touristy. Turns out, the food was very mediocre and pricy. Great views though!!

We jumped off a cable car to pay a visit to Fisherman's Wharf. We stopped for lunch here and had Sushi overlooking the marina. You can also see lots of sea lions in the marina here sunbathing on the jetties.

The redwood furniture shop is incredible, If I could I would furnish my house from here. The sea food restaurants, are first class, and the fresh crab claws with clarified melted butter are a must to try. The atmosphere around here is buzzing, with people from all over the World. San Francico is more often than not cold and foggy... More

Now there are plenty of places to CATCH a bite to eat. Crabs the size of your fist are abundant. I swiftly walked about as the strong fishy smell did not set well with my fellow travelers.

You've seen it on TV and movies. Go see it for yourself in person while you are here. While here we walked around Pier 39 and also went to the Hard Rock. It's a nice area and plenty to see and lots of places to eat. The day we went it was blue sky and just a nice place to... More
