“Forth time here and love the atmosphere”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

We make sure to visit Fisherman's Wharf every time we visit San Francisco. Great food, great scenery and a great place to walk around day or night. Numerous types of food options and several places to shop. This is a must do when in SF.

“Loved the food!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

This place is packed with people and it was to be expected in such a touristic place, but oh the sea food! Don't miss this, I had a clam chowder in the sourdough bread and it was awesome!
Take it at one of the booths and eat it outside in the sun - cannot be missed!

“Awesome… even for the locals!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

This is one of the coolest places to visit in San Francisco. I have been there many times, and I continue to go back even living here. The food selection is amazing, and it is always great! The atmosphere is unbeatable, and the families are always welcome. Staff are friendly and attentive, and if there are ever any problems they will be handled promptly and without fail. A must GO!!

“Great place for souvenirs”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Very touristy place with hit and misses on good food/seafood. However, it is a good place for souvenir shopping with lots of choices for magnets, tees, mugs and other trinkets.
