We made reservations in the restaurant. Excellent food. Not noisy when we were there. Got a shrimp cocktail...very good, and shared a burger.....also VERY good. Went for dinner, but found we were just to tired to eat.

Holidaying in San Fran and thought we better check out this Chowder business. Recommended Boudins by our uber driver. Very tasty food and fast service! Difficult to get a seat at this joint - seems like it's always busy. Awesome bread designs. Well worth a...More
