I was in on a Monday afternoon, and it wasn't crowded at all... Beers were great. I had the sliders, very good. Service was great - high five to the bartender...too bad it was her last day, she was a keeper.

The title pretty much sums it up. This place, located on the corner of Union and Powell, is right down the hill from Coit Tower. Having had to run up that hill to make the tour, Rogues was the perfect oasis on the way down. Obviously the focus is on Rogue beer but there's nothing wrong with that. Great selection... More

My husband I stopped by at Rogue Ales for a couple brewskis on the recommendation of a friend. It was a mid-Wednesday afternoon, so there were only a few other patrons in the main area of the pub. The bartender let us sample a couple of different beers on tap, based on our likes. The beer was cold and fresh... More

We spent in the day in San Francisco and wanted to grab a quick. This place has plenty of beers but they are really experience. With top it was 35 dollars for three beers. So pricey. The chocolate stout was pretty good. Chilled... Nice glass. Service was fine after they brought the right beers. I would probably not go back

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

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.
