Went there on a Friday evening while in San Francisco. Fun atmosphere, cozy booth and fantastic food. I had the ribs potato salad and baked beans; my husband had the meat mix plate with pulled pork and brisket with brussel sprouts - all of it was so scrumptuous! Only problem I had was that I couldn't eat it all and the hotel we were staying at didn't have a microwave to allow us to take it back and reheat later. Atmosphere was fun and they were playing hockey on the big screens - which was nice for us Canadians! Would have gone back for sure if we had more time. Enjoyed the setting sun in the bay across the street before settling down for dinner.

Made a point of going here as it serves brisket which I have been keen to try for a while. Unfortunately the brisket was a huge letdown - dry and tough and slathered in so much barbecue sauce that you couldn't really taste it anyway. The accompanying sprouts with bacon and corn bread were nicer than the main attraction. At the end of the meal, I think I just managed to replace my fork on the table before the waiter whisked my plate away (despite the place being half empty). Overall, not impressed.

Friendly server. Prompt service. Fish tacos were very good. Side order of Brussels sprouts with bacon were SO good! Sub par beer menu (at least for what is on draft).
