Nice place with a good atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu is good and there is plants of food. Their ravioli and pulled pork burger is recommended.

Such a great neighborhood place on a busy Polk St. corner with a few outside tables and big windows open to the street. Friendly service, casual setting, with local ballgames on the bar tv. Menu leans toward American comfort food, with nachos, great pulled pork sandwiches, fish tacos, Cobb salad, fresh salmon, burgers and pasta dishes. All dishes are generous... More

My second visit and I had the most delicious jumbalya with lots of shrimp, chicken, and sausage with perfect rice and not too spicy. Loved it! Also had chicken stuffed with feta cheese and fresh greens, cauliflower and broccoli with mashed potatoes. Good friendly service and not Elroy expensive

I run by this place in the early mornings quite often. The cleaning company is constantly dumping dirty/chemical water in the sewer that drains to the bay. I've reported this many times and it keeps happening...

Loved this place. As a single woman traveller I felt instantly comfortable. The staff were friendly as were the other customers. The service was great and the food was scrummy.

Decent little bar to while away an afternoon. Sit in the window and watch the world go by, or watch sport on the screens over the bar. Friendly service and ok prices. I can a quesadilla - perfectly pleasant. You could do a lot worse.

Perfect little corner pub and grill; a bit of outdoor seating. My wife visited with another patron's dog for half hour or so. We had a plate of nachos with pulled pork coupled with a Pear Cider and a IPA. Nothing over the top, just a nice neighborhood pub

Very hot wings, tasty ribs, tasty calamari. Calamari sauce is not that good. A little bit noisy people but place is cosy.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
