We went here for lunch not knowing its a walk up bufft line type set up. You can pick from 4 types of freshly sliced meat. The turkey and pastrami were awesome. You can get a dinner which includes two hot sides and a cold side. The Mac n cheese was heavenly. Waitress came by once to ask if we wanted drinks from the bar but other than that we didn't really have a server. The decor was fun. I would come here again when visiting!

We found this place by chance and decided to give it a try. We loved it and it became our 'local' for the time we were in San Francisco.
Great bartender called Lisa at the back bar who knows what she's about and gets everyone talking.

Food is plentiful and good, if a little overwhelming on the first visit.

Live music on the piano too at the front. It is a big place so it didn't dominate if you want to talk.

We visit Lefty O'Doul's every time we go to San Francisco. We always share a plate because neither one of us could finish our own! The Ruben sandwich is awesome, and their breakfasts are all very good.

Above average buffet at a great price. Kind of place you expect to see on DDD. We both enjoyed our meal.
