My wife and i visited this bar on the way to a restaurant we had booked and walked from Fishermans wharf to this area. The bar was excellent, lots of seating and a very friendly bar staff. We sat at the bar and just relaxed with a few beers and ended up talking to a few locals along the way.... More

Rogue bars are always great places to find when traveling, and this one is in the perfect location -- near North Beach. Very cool old school taps and selection of Rogue and other craft breweries.

Stopped for a quick lunch and beer on 4th of July weekend on a Saturday afternoon. It was packed but we found a table pretty quick. The waitress was super friendly and brought our drinks about 5 minutes after we sat down. We ordered a chicken salad and chicken sandwich. Both dishes were good but portions were a little on...

The place has a large array of beers (though for a craft beer bar there are some pretty average ones on tap). Bar tender was very rude and more interested in talking to his friends than helping customers (seems to be a theme). The beer was pretty good, but wouldn't go back in a hurry.

At the corner of Union Street and Powell street, this pub restaurant has a very wide selection of beers from the tap. You can enjoy one after another while watching sports here. The food selection is also quite good and reasonable too. Yes this is a chain but it retains a nice neighbourhood atmosphere. We had Halibut and chips, which... More

Such a rude barman. If they don't serve what you order I am used to being offered an alternative-seemed like a little too much trouble for this chap, he's the one with the beard. The only reason I gave 2 stars rather than 1 is the music. I only stayed for one drink due to the attitude.

Although the beer isn't local to San Fran, the beers are great and this place is worth a visit. Nice garden area and a large inside seating area.

A bit crowded, but I'm guessing that's because it's pretty awesome. We have always liked their beers and we were kinda surprised how good their food is. The table service is great and we had two different servers who were very knowledgable and helpful in choosing beers and food. The tenders at the bar were not quick or helpful. I... More

After a long day sight seeing we were too late to visit Chinatown restaurants as we had planned, and were thrilled to find the Rogue embassy. It has a great European pub feel, and while busy on a Saturday night we still received excellent service. The crowd was very cheerful and friendly as well. We've been fans of bottled Rogue... More

We stopped at Rogue on our weekend in San Fran as we were visiting the many breweries in the area. Unique local options are what Rogue is known for and they did not disappoint. Also serving great bar food as well!

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
