Stopped for a late lunch while visiting the area. The restaurant doesn't seat many people, but is a nice, open, contemporary space. Three of us each ordered one of the three sliders and shared them. The burger slider was OK, the pork slider very good and the chicken slider was delicious. My wife had the chili which came to the... More

Our party of 8 had good service, tasty food and HUGE portions! I'm not sure that anyone finished their portion! I had a brisket reuben that was fantastic. Both of my parents got the BBQ pot roast and raved about how tender it was. The kids ordered various things, including the buffalo mac and cheese that was amazing. Highly recommended!

With a name like "The Pub" I was hoping for a place with a bit more of a craft beer selection--but was still able to quench my thrst adequately. The barbeque entrees and sides are quite good, and well prepared. I was happy with my meal after a long evening of walking the neighborhood. Friendly service.

Let me start with the positives. The ambience is much more contemporary than you would expect from a BBQ restaurant and actually has a nice chic decor. The food is very tasty yet overpriced. I had the Salmon, my son had the chili Mac and cheese, and my wife ordered the sliders and a side of mac and cheese. All... More

My husband and I had our first meal in San Francisco at The Pub and it was fantastic. We ordered caramelized onion and garlic dip, shared a bowl of chili as it was cold outside and chicken sliders. We were satisfied with the service and with the food. Great place and great location to visit as it is in the... More

Great atmosphere, tasty drinks, the food is so good. We had the pork sliders & the tommy tots, sweet potato tater tots tossed in this Asian sauce and topped with crumbled blue cheese.

We made a reservation 3 months in advance. What could go wrong, right? When I tried to change the number in our party from 3 to 5 several days prior to our reserved dinner, I could not do so online for some reason. I tried calling the restaurant, but there was no answer. So, believing it might be crowded, I... More

Would recommend a visit. Great choice of beers (and other) drinks at the bar and later we came back for dinner where I had the beat brisket sandwich of our trip.

We went here on a recommendation of the guy on the trolley car. Mac and cheese with buffalo chicken was excellent along with the margarita I had. Husband had the pulled pork and enjoyed it. Nice, relaxing place.
