Being from the South The Pub was a real treat! Our party consumed chili, chicken tortilla soup, bbq sliders, a bbq Sammy, and a Reuben. Place was busy so took some time to get the food--worth the wait! Staff was friendly...made sure we had everything we needed.

The Pub has a nice lunch menu and a good barbecue selection. I had the pulled pork sandwich which delicious and came with a side of fresh French fries! The service is fine and the prices are reasonable considering the last cation and views.

We were seated outside and I'm not sure why but it took quite awhile for our server to come out to take our orders. We almost got up and left. We kept watching bus boys and other waitstaff. They all saw us waiting for service. She never offered an apology in the delay. Most of the rest of the experience... More

I found The Pub by chance whilst walking in the Marina district. I thought I'd give it a try and I'm so glad I did. I sat at the bar and ordered a club burger and drink. The food is excellent and the atmosphere very relaxed but what sets this place aside from other places is the staff. As a... More

Ordered truffle Mac and cheese with no bacon, as I am a vegetarian. Came full of bacon. Hard to find a server to let them know, by time found server she didn't apologise, just said won't you eat it? Which I was bemused as I ordered it without in the first place. I said no, then she removed it, brought... More

My wife and I had just flown into the City from Seattle headed for Marin. Rather than fight the Friday night commuter traffic on the Bridge, we decided to have dinner at the Pub and drive to San Anselmo later. We were seated promptly and Sean, our waiter, was taking our order within minutes. We both ordered their Pot Roast... More

It looked like it would be a nice relaxing place to eat while we were in town touring San Francisco. Our server was terrible, very slow and inattentive. I ordered a sandwich and when I got it I said that it was not what I ordered. The server said it was so I ate part of it but it was... More

We walked here from the Pier to have an appetizer before dinner. Tater Tots...we had already checked out the menu. We sat outside. There is a parking garage attached, and everytime a car is approaching (every 2 minutes) a loud siren goes off. Not great. And the signature drinks--were horrible
