Went in for a quick lunch before heading back to the airport. The food was good, although the menu was very limited. The service was great, although that could be because there was only one other small group in the place besides us. Not sure it will be a stop for me again when back in the area.

We actually came to this place a couple times during our visit. The second floor was a very busy bar area. It was very obvious that it was the locals hang out. The third floor was much quieter, much more spacious, and a very quiet but great place to have a drink and appetizer. Both floors served great snacks and appetizers at super cheap deals. We had tons of appetizers and all of them were absolutely delicious! We were so glad that we found this place during our vacation!!

Ate dinner here over the Easter weekend. Nice room with interesting decor and tables are not all packed together. Menu is fairly simple pub food, but with a few more upscale items thrown in. Had the mussels in garlic sauce which were good. Not overcooked nor overpowered by garlic - just the right amount. Seafood linguine was okay, pasta cooked properly as was the seafood - squid, clams, mussels & shrimp. Wife liked the whole crab. Nothing spectacular about the food or the menu...meh...just okay. Prices are quite reasonable and the service was solid. Drinks were good.

The only reason I didn't give this a terrible rating is the decor inside the restaurant is amazing. Beautiful old slot machines lined up by the pool table and other older decorations throughout. However, couldn't find anything on the menu that really interested me so I went with the BBQ chicken. OMG, the worst BBQ sauce I have ever tasted. Sides just ok. Wife ordered a burger, said is was ok and she is a burger lover and knows a good one when she comes acrossed one. Prices hefty, but again, San Francisco. The best part of the evening was taking the streetcar from Fisherman's Wharf at night and traveling and walking to the restaurant.

We came to this restaurant since it was near our hotel and we were tired and hungry after a long flight. The service was decent but the food was average. Typical pub/bar food. The atmosphere was fun and it seemed a bit under construction in some areas.
