This was a lively spot with warehouse feel- arugula salad with fried chicken was delicious and there are plenty of interesting draft beers to choose from. Speedy service . Only issue was it was a little noisy upstairs

It's about a 10-15 minute cab drive and a very long walk up-hill. This is around Knob Hill and Fisherman's Wharf is at the base of this super tall hill. There are cool bars in the Financial District in SF that might be a... More
