Hubby is happy! We were seated immediately and had great service the entire time! (Thanks Jose!!) I’m allergic to seafood so I got the chicken Ceasar salad. Very crisp and the perfect amount of dressing. Hubby ordered the clam chowder bread bowl and the crab...More

We arrived in SFO in the afternoon and were excited to get some Clam Chowder to hold us over until we had a late dinner. This was terrible. There were lumps of flour in the chowder, not just one or two but more lumps than...More

Old time Fisherman's Wharf restaurant. Oysters were good. Whole fried clams were a new experience but good. Serving sizes were adequate. Inside is dated.More

You know around the Wharf you are going to get “tourist food”, but this is a step below that. When, from your table, you can see cans of “New England Clam Chowder” in the kitchen (an unclean kitchen area at that) you know this “restaurant”...More

It's truly disheartening to hear this -- for one thing, I can assure you our clam chowder is a staple here. And, as a place with a lot of foot traffic, we do everything possible to keep our space clean. While you didn't walk away...More

My husband and I stopped while in San Francisco. He was yearning for Dungeness crab...and but did he get one! Entrees come with soup or salad. My crab cakes were delicious. Not a fancy place, more like eating at a fisherman's place, in a good...More

Nice seafood dishes at reasonable prices. Servings are big but not too big to make you need a doggy bag.

The location of the restaurant is conveniently located along pier 43. The calamari was fresh and tasty. The clam chowder is very thick which is not my preference but it has decent flavor.
