“Love the clam chowder in a bread bowl”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I love the New England clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl here. I first had it on our honeymoon two years ago and went back for more on my most recent trip. The seafood is always fresh, the servers are friendly and the view (if you get a table near the window) is beautiful. I look forward to returning on my next trip!

“Exceptional seafood and great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

After a long day of walking throughout San Francisco and Alcatraz, we were just looking for a place to get some good seafood and to rest our tired feet. We picked Pier Market only by chance and seeing the menu had some tasty items on its menu. We were not disappointed. The grilled snapper I had was great and the fish and chips were crispy and very good. The service was great and if you have a sweet tooth, don't forget to try the chocolate chip bread pudding!

“Great Crabcakes!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Went here while on a business trip. The food was very good although the calamari seemed overbreaded. The view was great as well.
