“Great food and service, not cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had some of the best waitstaff on our trip here. The waitress was very pleasant and even brought our baby a complimentary bread loaf shaped like a turtle - super cute! Food was very good, some of the best pizza I've had in a long time. Wasn't cheap though. Would definitely stop here again, we sat upstairs in the bar/restaurant area and had a nice view of the bay.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Near the ticket office of several ferry lines, the Boudin Bakery, famous for sour dough, served delicious crab cakes and chicken salad featuring grapes and almonds. We were lucky to sit in an 'outside' patio area, protected from wind and rain. There is a small demo window. The prices are reasonable for the location and for San Francisco.

“Good, but tourist trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

This bakery is a must-see in the Fisherman's Wharf area. The specialty breads are pieces of art. As far as the food, it was fine, but definitely over-priced because of its prime location. Great atmosphere, but patio is very windy!

“Clam chowder in the best bread bowl”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

One can hardly go to San Francisco and not get sourdough bread, so we stopped here after getting off the ferry from Alcatraz. This place is nothing fancy, but the chowder was good, and the bread was better. Quite reasonably priced for such a good meal.

“Sourdough bread sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Nice cafeteria style eatery with soups, salads, pizza and sandwiches. I had the tuna sandwich with sourdough bread. My family also had salad, pizza and clam chowder soup. Reasonably priced. Convenient location on the pier area. There are other locations of this eatery in SF city which I did not visit.
