This is an excellent Shark's pregame destination. Don't let the small size and packed bar deter you. They have a process and it works. When you enter, grab a number across the bar, then grab yourself a drink. When your number is called, be ready to order...order your food, then grab another drink. When your name is called, you're brought... More

We eat dinner here every time we come to a Sharks game. The baby back ribs are the best anywhere and all the food is good. We line up at the door so when they open up we can get a low number and get seated quickly when the start serving dinner. If you have not been here before the... More

Good food. Not worth the extra long wait. Much too waiting for fair food. If you have the time, have at it.

The food is fantastic. Everything we had at our table was great. The service was also excellent, the hostess and waitress were very friendly and efficient. When you walk in, you select what you want from the menu posted on the wall and give your order to the hostess. When a table is ready, you sit and your salads are... More

Been here 3 or 4 times before. Always before a Sharks game. Walking distance to SAP. Close to our hotel. Great food in a throwback atmosphere. Great steaks cooked to perfection, hearty sides included in your price and a great bar. The staff is efficient and friendly. Tight quarters, especially before a Sharks game, but it it worth it. I...

Restaurant is in quiet street but when we entered into place it was full of people. The athmosphere was magnificant and even there were so many people we got a table after 30 minutes waiting. Ate here ribs, it was 18$ and portion made me full. Service was friendly and fast. This place is near the SAP center so if... More

Love this place. Reminds me of the small town bar/restaurant. Tri-tip salad is wonderful. Full array of beers and wine.
