Good location with a nice view. That's where the good ends. Food is pedestrian at best. Not worth the price for sure. My wife ordered the burger which was bland and tasteless. Seems like the meat used is most cheapest ground meat. She replaced with fish and chips which was meh... I had the shrimps which was ok but nothing special. They have iced tea but it's bitter. We needed to add sweetner used for coffie just to make it bareable. I would suggest anywhere else but here. We were actually bummed out we didn't go to the "in and out" or chipotle instead. And that's saying a lot...

Horrible food. Service was ok but the food was by far the worst tasting food I've had at a restaurant. The ribeye was cheap meat and was probably bought at Walmart.

The view is cute overlooking the harbor, fishing docks and boats with nice big windows. The live jazz enjoyable without overpowering our conversation. The wait staff friendly but inattentive. The filet mignon cuts are inconsistent, my wife's had a gritty texture and was over cooked, no pink at all for a medium-rare order and mine had a too-long-in-the-fridge taste to part of it. The whole thing was smothered in an overpowering mushroom sauce disguising the mediocrity of the beef. The lobster was properly cooked and flavorful. The chopped spinach as well. All in all it was a pleasant dinner, but could have been much better.

I went recently to have my 3 year anniversary by the bay. I enjoyed sitting by the window and serving us quickly. I bought the Groupon which helped me save a large portion of the bill. Remember that if you do buy the Groupon, you have to make reservations in advance. My girlfriend and I had the Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder for appetizers. I loved it. The bowl was enough for me with the buttered bread that came, that I thought I'd be too full for my main course. My entree was the Seafood Cioppino and my girlfriend got the dungeness crab cioppino. Both were very delicious. Mine came with scallops, clams, and crab. While my girlfriends cioppino came with large crab legs. The mud pie for dessert was very delicious too :D.

We had a banquet hosted here a little while back and it was really nice. The view in the banquet room upstairs was awesome and the owner was awesome. I wish I remembered his name. The food was great and the service was great. One nice thing I have to say about the banquet service was that I didn't notice them at all. They were efficient and stayed out of the way. I recommend this place for your next banquet. Just be aware that this place is in the heart of Pier 39 so parking is going to be tough if you want something nearby.

Went here for lunch and decided to sit inside. There was a strange smell about the place. The Calamari was pretty good. We had the crab cake sandwich and Cod and chips for entrees. Way too much fries. The crab cake came in one of those cheap buns you get from Jack in the Box on the dollar menu. The crab cake itself was probably microwaved. The beer battered cod was ok. Service was good although one of the waiters had dirty hands. Definitely not worth the money. Very expensive for an ok experience.
