We were able to set outside with a nice view of the bay and a lot of obnoxious birds.... Took quite awhile to get waited on and not that busy. Very disappointed that this is a chain restaurant. Good but rather small margaritas. My husband...More

We were seated upstairs with a view of the harbor. The service was excellent! Everyone's meal was prepared as ordered. We even shared a dessert. All in all, a great dinner before our cruise.

Glad we read reviews before deciding on where to go for a light snack. The bar at Fisherman's Wharf was a great choice. Shrimp kisses were absolutely wonderful. Combine the kisses with 1/2 dozen boiled shrimp -who needs anything more

We visited Pier 21 in the mid-week and mid afternoon. The patios on the water were minimally occupied by guests. We wanted a break with a view, a cocktail and light appetizers. The staff said that the patio was only available if we ordered a...More

For the two of us. It ended up being a $100 lunch. Which is way more than I would usually spend. But I have to say I would go back. The view was fun. The shrimp kisses were great. The stuffed flounder amazing. I had...More

The food is delicious. Great selection of fresh local fish! Loved the Gold Line Fish! Outside eating is nice if warm and not fogged in.

Not to my knowledge and we have been there numerous times in all seasons and all kinds of weather. We have never seen even a "purse" sized dog.
