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...More

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

Fantastic meal. Starters of crab cakes & cowboy spring rolls with steak, peppers and jack cheese. Mains of snapper & mash (requested rather than fries) & Ribs & fries. Both meals were great, so much meat on the ribs. Quick friendly service. Recommend

We walked from the cable car because this was described as a seafood restaurant on my tripadvisor app. We were disappointed. My husband had a hamburger and I had a salad. There was no seafood to speak of on the menu. The food was o.k.

The food was good and the staff was friendly. It did take a little while to get the food out but we were a party of 17. We did all sit at the same table and that was great

We were walking back to our hotel and were looking for a place for breakfast and a drink. This was the perfect spot. The Mexican scramble was amazing. The Bloody Mary had the right spice and the people there were as friendly as you could...More

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
