Fisherman’s Wharf is a collection of restaurants and gift shops located on a pier. The Ward offers many choices of restaurants and great views of the SF Bay. It’s colorful, easy to walk and a true SF experience.

It's as touristy as you might expect, but a pleasant way to spend a morning and conveniently located at the end of the cable car run. Lots of restaurants and small, albeit overpriced, shops. We went twice, once to just wander around in the morning...More

The Wharf has been an essential part of touring San Francisco for decades. It has lots to offer, good food, great people watching, long promenade and great vistas of the bay, Alcatraz the Golden Gate and so much more.

Tacky. California’s answer to Blackpool. Many tours start and end here but there are much nicer parts of SF to explore.

Great views, good food , nice bars. Been here a few times seems to be getting run down and dirty. A lot more garbage and homeless than in the past.

I believe its Pier 39 near the boats for Alcatraz. There's some rides and shops and if you walk behind the stores along the water, you will catch the seals basking on some wood floats.
