We have been to this bar before and never had this bad of a time. The first sign that they don't give a hoot about their customers was when the bartender came to our table to tell us he would be back in a bit....More

Stopped in with a client for a few drinks, frankly ended up here since most other places near the Pier were closed by 10p on a Thursday night. The bartenders worked hard, but this place frankly is too big for 2 bartenders to work when...More

We hadn't been able to find a great bar at Fishermans Wharf and luckily came upon this one. Bar men were friendly and fun, drinks strong, patrons friendly and welcoming. Had a great few hours, drinking, meeting people and laughing with the staff. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our drinks at Gold Dust Lounge which is in the Fisherman Wharf area of San Francisco. The $2.00 Jello shots are strong drinks, especially given the price. We also enjoyed irish coffee. The historic bar has been in San Francisco since 1933. There...More

We went here on the last night in San Francisco and instantly made friends with the guy on the door, who was super friendly (maybe because we're Australian.) We chose to sit at the bar, since there was only two of us, but there were...More

This is the only establishment that my friend and I frequented twice during our trip to San Francisco. It has an excellent location in Fisherman's Wharf and has, quite possibly, the cleanest public washrooms in the city. It's vintage decoration is fun and the guy...More
