Description: Located in the magnificent former power plant of a Ford automobile factory, the Boilerhouse serves fresh, fast, local, delicious food on the waterfront. Enjoy exceptional value, great tastes and, of course, our amazing view of the San Francisco skyline and the Bay. Most simply, our concept is Slow food flavor at fast food prices. We invite guests to grab a quick healthy meal on the go when they’re hiking the Bay Trail or taking a break from the office--or to stay as long as they like and enjoy our waterfront setting while they linger over a meal and drinks. Boilerhouse recipes change frequently to reflect the season and the plentiful local markets. We use local, all-natural ingredients, and organic when possible. We serve lunch, pub, dinner and brunch, all under $10. We welcome your feedback as we are constantly developing and improving. It's wonderful to be part of the Bay Area community, and to be bringing new crowds to the historic Craneway, the birthplace of Rosie the Riveter.

“Fast food... Not fast food...”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Their goat and mushroom pizza is wonderful! Potato chips made fresh, great burgers and the carnita tacos of you remove the overdosage of pickled jalapeños, we're very good. Reasonably priced, all you can drink soft drinks and higher end booze.

“Not a fast food place”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

In an area with lots of fast food places and chain restaurants this is something different. It is in the casino and I don't go often.

“Hard to find but worth it.”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

Very hard to find. Interesting resturant design as they left much of the machinery in place. The food was good and the service was prompt. It was cold by the front door and they seemed to be unable to keep the door closed.

“Not just a lunch but an experience”
Reviewed July 10, 2011

Our hamburgers were generous and juicy, with a good fresh bun. Fries nice and dark and crispy. Good iced tea for me, a beer for him. But the building! history! View View View! The Boilerhouse is on the San Francisco Bay, with pathways that stretch for miles along the shore. The windows go on forever, the ceiling is very high. It is kind of noisy, but you won't even mind. You have to see this! There is a bar too. Worth a trip to Richmond.

“Loved it! Got to Go to the Boilerhouse!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

On a Saturday afternoon, this restaurant was an awesome gift from God! Rosie the Riveter would have been proud as the Boilerhouse, located in the converted Ford/WWII Ship Building Factory is now home to a 'not to miss' restaurant!! On the water with great views, the food was good and the service (Tai!) was fabulous! We had the greek salad (good- little too much vinegar but i'd order again!), the fish and chips (loved the homemade tarter sauce!) and the garlic/mushroom pizza...YUM! Full bar, good selection of beers- can't wait to go back!
