Not bad, but there are other restaurants with better seafood for the same price. Service was average as well.

Absolutely amazing! We loved this restaurant! We've been here twice, in our 3 days in SF! We're coming back this year! Price is good! Fish and chips was DELICIOUS! I had Jambalaya the second evening! Yummy! Like I said, can't wait to come back!

We stopped in the Pier Market today for lunch on our first day visiting from the UK. We each had a different meal, blackened rick cod, swordfish, mahi mahi, and jambalaya and all were perfect. Very fresh and light and just right in the sunshine. We only had to wait 10 mins for a table at 1pm but stood in... More

Server was good, very attentive. Food came fast. A little noisy but it's just the atmosphere of the restaurant.

This has to be our all time favorite .Everything is fresh and full of flavor...Lots of garlic!, fresh sourdough bread. Clam chowder is light packed with clams. It has window seating so you can see and hear the sealions in the bay below. The plates portions are large and it offers beer ans wine. PIER MARKET wont disappoint

My friend and I stopped at Pier Market for lunch taking a break from discovering the wharf area of San Francisco. The wait was not very long even though there were many guests waiting. The service was excellent and the food was very nicely prepared, as well as being reasonably priced. It was a wonderful lunch and having a table... More
