The place is nice but the service and the rest isn't at all..we were served a coke which tasted bitter like there was only soda water in it and the coke mix was running low when asked if it was possible to change it the waitress replied with this is how we serve it here which is strange as this...

In the heart of the financial district of SF, this pub is excellent for lunch, or to enjoy one of our many championship sports teams. If you want, you can also partake in watching international soccer matches. The crowd is mixed and friendly and the servers are great.

Stopped in here for a quick beer and stayed for a while. Great staff with great beer knowledge, big range of beers. Had the chilli and it was good I'd certainly come back again

Hidden away and very authentic Irish bar. Nice selection and food was on point. Even had some outside seating. Lots of neat stuff to view on the walls and the bartender was great. Stop in and check it out.

Great little place amongst a lot of other maybe not so good eateries! Good menu selection for drinks and food and friendly service. It's a little off the beaten track but nevertheless you'll be glad you went in! Wearied the fish & chips, Irish stew and bangers & mash. And all tasted great! Would definitely go back. Great job!

The Irish dishes like the stew and sandwiches were great. The curry was also very good. Nice choice of beers. There were the many Irish signs and old things on the walls and in the bathrooms. No Irish music of course, just 70s rock blasting away. The alley was full of seating as well. A fine experience.

I am very impressed with this place. Great prices, Guinness is fantastic and it's very well located. Whoever owns it has done well to balance a high level of service and great pricing. The shepherds pie was really good.

We just retuned from a two week trip in Ireland. The Fish and Chips and Irish stew were great and reasonably priced. The service was good. I recommend!

We are a group seeking the best Irish Coffee in the Bay area. So far, we think The Irish Bank is the best we have found so far! Food is good, basic pub food...we shared appetizers rather than main courses. Service was friendly, funny, and cheerful. Would go back next time I'm wanting Irish Coffee and a friendly place to...
