We went here on the way back from Alcatraz. We walked to it from the pier where we got the boat not to far. The food was great and staff very friendly had a laugh. Great service.

We had lunch here after doing some shopping at Pier 39! It was a great atmosphere as there had been a parade for Remberance weekend! The service was awesome and the burgers delicious!

Had one of their burgers for lunch. Great taste. Staff were great. Would have been 5 stars if they had public wifi, but for some reason it is not provided.

The worst experience in a long time. I waited forever to be served. I actually had to flag a waiter down and ask if I can place an order, since I was waiting for 20mins for someone to approach my table. I ordered the veggie...More

Though primarily founded during the Gold Rush, San Francisco really made a name for itself in the turbulent 60's. Political protests, the infamous "summer of love" and of course, the ground-breaking music scene all marked San Francisco as an important and pivotal locale for culture. And take it from us—this city with a past still makes the scene, today. Whether we're talking foot-stomping live music or another 6.5 on the Richter, San Francisco truly rocks! Back in the day hippies used to congregate at Haight-Ashbury, but these days the rockinest spot is the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco. Where else can you eat the tastiest burger in town, trippin' out on groovy rock artifacts and treasures, while jamming to the most outta sight tunes? Our mind-blowing memorabilia collection featuring great locals is far out, man! Grateful Dead, Faith No More, Jefferson Airplane, Journey, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, Vince Guaraldi… these are just a few of the local bands that made it big. Now you can get in on big action yourself with the Cafe that's rocking San Francisco! Here at Pier 39 we've got fab views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, the San Francisco Bay, and the City skyline, not to mention more than 110 stores, 11 full-service restaurants, and numerous fun-filled attractions. You can find the 45-acre, Pier 39 complex two blocks east of Fisherman's Wharf at Beach Street and The Embarcadero. So if you're going to San Francisco, be sure to stop by the Hard Rock Cafe.
