We stopped in here for breakfast/brunch on our first morning in San Francisco. We'd just flown in that morning. It was fleet week and a Saturday, so everything was pretty crowded but there wasn't a wait. We were lucky enough to snag a table right outside with a great view of the water. Some of us ordered breakfast and others... More

We were looking forward to so good diner food, but the shrimp on the salad was tasteless, hot dogs nothing special. Did enjoy the milkshakes and fries. Service was disappointing too.

Great view of the bay! It was very quiet when we arrived, and were able to sit near the windows. Sitting outside on a hot day would be awesome. We ordered a club sandwich to share (we were hungry, but were planning a larger dinner later in the evening). Nothing special about the food, but it's a club sandwich. It... More

This is a cool restaurant with a fifties feel. Old cars, soda fountain etc. oh and the food was very good also. Next door to Ghirardelli chocolate.

In the hunt for food found this Diner in Ghiradelli Square. It was one of the quieter restaurants in the area so we were able to grab a window seat and eat! The food was tasty and whilst not served up with any panache was very tasty.

This well-situated diner on the edge of Ghiradelli Square seemed ideal after a trip on the Cable Cars as it looked rather fun, very 'American' which we wanted even if it was slightly fake 'American', and had a good view over the bay at Fisherman's Wharf. There were tables outside which would have been nice on a less breezy day;... More

Great views across the Bay and the place itself has the look and feel of a 1950s diner. The menu was typically huge as were the portions. Service was friendly and efficient. Would be happy to recommend it as a good place to have your breakfast.

Thank Helen S
