The place is cash only, bad food and service. Oysters are $1 but not clean and sandy. There's plenty of other better bars with better happy hour options a block away. Not worth going to.

We were enjoying our flights of beer and the music, and the environment, but quite frankly, we didn't stay longer (or go back later) because the bartender was very dry and it was apparent she did not like her job. I wouldn't call her rude,...More

We had appetizers and drinks here. They have both inside and outside seating. Helpful staff and good bar food. Usually a good crowd. Would definitely go back.

Love this place for the beer. However, reminds me of an old college bar. Could be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. Bar tenders are VERY knowledgeable about all beers on tap, and they have a ton of local drafts.

Needed a break near Fisherman's Wharf, then found non-touristy Jack's Cannery Bar. The red trolley ales and our delicious clam chowder in Boudin sourdough bowls were exactly what we needed. Big space (with a big gorilla), dark, and kind of tired, but there is a...More

The place to go along the waterfront for a draft selection that will meet the expectations of all you beer fans. Make sure the kitchen is open before you order drinks if you are hungry. If food isn't an issue, you won't be disappointed by...More

After a long day it was so nice to enjoy a drink and a decent steak dinner for under $55 for two. It has a good atmosphere and felt relaxing. When we arrived, there was live music being played. Another added bonus. Try it, you...More
