A good place to drink a draft beer. Guinness of course. Good food, good ambiance and people. But a bit expensive. A great selection of beers too!

We went to the dueling piano's in the basement. They were funny, but extremely vulgar. My husband and I were entertained, but the couples we were with wanted to leave immediately. The food from the bar was excellent. I got an AMF, but it was...More

We paid $10 each to do the piano bar. Great live music and a terrific atmosphere. Service was first class and a great place for an evenings entertainment. Seems to be be free entry Weds/Thurs but check. It's worth the $10 anyway.

We had drinks and appetizers in the bar area during a college football game day. Menu is awesome and service was great! It was a fun atmosphere to watch football before our next event.

not being sure where to eat in San francisco, the menu on the window drew us into Johnny Foleys. Although busy,noisy, we were able to find a table and enjoy a reasonably priced bottle of wine and a good two course meal each.

Spent a couple of evenings in this bar, both having a beer and food. If you want to see the duelling pianos get there early. Food is tasty although reasonably priced. Staff are pleasant and fun to be around.

I went at night. I don't know if they have shows during the day or only at night. Make sure you make a reservation at the bar, not the restaurant if you want to see the piano show.
