I've eaten at the Pier Market Restaurant countless times and it has always been excellent. They are very busy and it generally means a wait to get a table, but the food is well worth it. The prices are some of the best at Pier 39, you have your choice of patio seating or inside (even with a view of... More

We've tried a few clam chowders around the pier area and this one is the best in our view. We also love the lobster and ribs and it's got good views out to the harbour.

This restaurant was busy and hopping so we decided to try it. Th beers were cold, the crab salad had minimal crab and the fish and chips were greasy. Servers were dropping food everywhere and they were inattentive. We would not return here with so many choices.

The first little issue came up on arrival at 4:15. The place was unusually empty, but the hostess wanted to seat my daughter and I outside. It was a bit chilly, so I asked to sit inside. She got huffy and asked us to wait so she could "see what she could do". She came back to the hostess stand... More

I was in Pier39, and it was raining so I decide to have an early lunch (before 11:00 AM) to hide from the rain and the cold weather. I was the first customer and got a very good place with a view of the harbor and you could see in the distance the sea lions of the pier. I ordered... More

Absolutely amazing! We loved this restaurant! We've been here twice, in our 3 days in SF! We're coming back this year! Price is good! Fish and chips was DELICIOUS! I had Jambalaya the second evening! Yummy! Like I said, can't wait to come back!

First of all, Steve, the manager made sure we had a table with a view when he found out it was our anniversary - nice touch! We came for Clam Chowder and it was very good and full of clams. The Calamari was crisp and tender served with a tangy seafood sauce. Of course there was a basket of sourdough... More

A great place to chill out on Pier 39. I visited this place for lunch based on the local crowd heading here. It was a right decision as the food was very very tasty. The place appears a bit expensive but the size of their portions makes up for it. Service is extremely fast and the staff is friendly. Don't... More

The Chowder in bread was very good. The service quick and efficient even when busy. The seafood platter was average, more of a fry up with fish overdone, chips underdone and prawns and calamari very average. The 5% tax for employees health tax was an extra that was not explained up front, not impressed. Missed the mark for me, expected... More
