I had lunch at the Wipeout Grill during what I'll probably remember as my worst day in San Francisco. It was raining cats and dogs outside so me and my friends found shelter here. In order to warm up a bit I ordered the Clam Chowder even though I wasn't that hungry. After the first spoon however it was simply... More

This place is very cool and reminiscent of the "Crab Shacks" by the beach we have all seen on TV in the 80's and 90's. Sport on the TV's and lots of surfy art. A mixed menu with anything from steak to seafood to hot dogs! Great for a quick and reasonably priced meal but there are better places at... More

Recently ate a late lunch here with some business colleagues after having gone to Alcatraz. We sat at some hightops, just inside, but with great views all around to the activity on the Pier and also water next to us. Service was very attentive, not pushy and we enjoyed several nicely tasting and portioned appetizers before our meals. My meal... More

Fun when it's warm and you can sit outside round the fire! Inside not so striking but the food was good and ok priced for a pricey area. We enjoyed it after a long day of exploring.

The food happens to be excellent my wife had the salmon BLT and she's still raving about it a week later. We all had a great meal here. This place is not to be missed.

Wipeout Bar & Grill is located on Pier 39 in San Francisco, CA. It is a cool place with outdoor seating on the pier which is great for people watching or you can sit indoors and look out over the harbor. They have life size figures of an attractive surfer dude and babe to have your picture taken with and... More

They were a bit busy. It was a great atmosphere to get a couple bites to eat and drinks. Portions were large- the nachos and fried pickles. They were a little busy so we didn't see our server often. Would try again so I could give it a second chance in hopes the service was just because it was pretty... More

I had the BBQ pork sandwich with fries, and mymum had the chicken burrito. Both meals were very tasty and decnt value. Service was very good,... More

Went here a couple of times: burgers good and dependable. Can be a long wait, even for a single table. There's a short bar with seating as you come in, if there's space. Lots of couples and families. Friendly staff, but not always very aware. Some hotel concierges in the area (the Sheraton, at least) can give you a 15%... More
