Small locale off Mission Street known for its creatively prepared American comfort food.- Google
"Had a really good benedict with sausage, crawfish, jalapeno hollandaise."
"The gougeres were more biscuit-y, less cheesy, not anything special."

Love the Lumberjack! It's peach pancake with delicious bacon and sausage w/Vermont Syrup. Excellent service and ambient right at 10am. The sun is out and it's nice to sit by the window. Overall, they have an awesome menu and fantastic service.

Stumbled upon this place during a typical evening walk around San Francisco. This place is super tiny, luckily we were able to slip right in without reservations. The server was very knowledgeable and did a great job explaining the menu. The food took a little long to arrive, but it was worth the wait. The plate presentation was spot on and the meat, lamb in this case, was cook perfect. Maverick was a pleasant experience, but it just lacked that special something to truly make it great.

Came here for a dinner date, and liked it a lot. Started off with a glass of white wine that I picked out on my own. Waiter came over and was nice enough to offer us a taste of a similar / better option. We respectfully declined, but that was pretty cool that they did that. Started off with the veal sweetbread and burrata. The veal was tender and cooked very well. The burrata wasn't very great, but I didn't mind it. For entrees we got the lamb and short rib. The short rib plate was by far my favorite part of the meal. The meat fell off the bone perfectly, the pork belly had the perfect crispness, and the sausage had a good depth of flavor. I wasn't blown away by the lamb, which was a bit upsetting since lamb is my favorite - I think it was just cooked a little longer than I would have preferred. For dessert we got the peach tart. This was my second favorite dish. The crust on the tart was freaking amazing. I died with every bite. I'm not the hugest fan of peaches, but I loved how they were perfectly caramelized on top of the tart. In all, I will def. plan on coming back here. It's an intimate setting, and I liked that it was fairly quiet.

We went for brunch and ordered cream puffs as appetizers for the table, and I had the Lumberjack (Brown butter pancakes w/ cranberry apple chutney & walnut streusel, sunny side up egg, brown sugar bacon, Maverick breakfast sausage, Vermont maple syrup). Both were quite delectable. The portion sizes were large enough to be filling, but not overly so. The space was quite small, but cozy, and didn't fill up until 12pm or so, making for a comfortable brunch experience.

The fried chicken is the best thing on the menu, hands down. Their cocktails are always changing. I definitely had some misses. But their fried chicken has always been consistent. We go there very frequently for date nights.

Maverick used to have their famous fried chicken available only a handful of times per month. You were considered cool and in the know if you knew what nights the fried chicken were on the menu. Luckily, the chicken is now a staple (as it should be, it's glorious), but the majority of the menu rotates on a regular basis. I have yet to have a meal there that I didn't enjoy. In fact I had my death row meal there. They had bone marrow and toast for an appetizer. It was amazing! That same night, our waiter suggested a bottle of pinot that was extraordinary. I strongly recommend Maverick, but be sure to get reservations since the space is sooo small.

Maverick is good enough, but this is San Francisco and the market is very competitive when it comes to this type of fare. My wife and I had a decent brunch at Maverick—fresh, well-prepared and all that—but the menu just didn't excite me as much as other locations. Heck, if this were any other city I'd probably be raving.

I got a chance to try some of Maverick's food at a Best of the Bay party this summer and made a mental note to go here to try their BBQ pulled pork sandwich some time. Then, I saw it on a top 10 list for brunch, so my friend and I went here for Sunday brunch to try it out. I had the blackberry mimosa (which was really delicious and light), the pulled pork sandwich, and we split an order of donut holes. My friend had the baked eggs (which the waiter let us know was really more of a frittata and, thus, is served warm not hot). The mimosa and the donut holes were tremendous. The pulled pork sandwich was good (much better than the one at Citizen Cake, not as good as the one that Home used to have on its menu as the Saturday night special), but not great. The meat could have been more moist. The chips that they serve on the side are really good - not too salty or greasy. On the minus side, they serve just a tiny cup of coleslaw, where you really do want more coleslaw with a sandwich that big. I'd go back - I really like pulled pork sandwiches, and this is a solid preparation that is available all the days of the week=, but I have had better. In terms of service, the waiter was fast and informative (note the frittata warning above). My only complaint was that we ordered the donut holes as a starter and our meals were ready first so he brought the meals out and then brought the donut holes about 5 minutes after that (we ended up eating them for dessert), so in terms of eating the donut holes warm, it could have been timed better. The decor and feel is pretty typical of the mission -- slightly strange orange and brown color scheme (probably southwestern?) and it's a little run down. Reading the other reviews, I think the comment of good for brunch/lunch, bad for dinner is pretty dead on. I wouldn't be psyched to have dinner here (not that nice, and the menu seems more lunchy).
