A lovely little American diner near to the bay. Reasonably priced, good if not awesome food but really outstanding service. Very friendly waiters and waitresses that made my visit pleasant. Another place I wish I could give 1/2 stars too - more a 3 1/2 rather than a 3 star place! Comes recommended.

Decent burger and service. Nothing outstanding but was worth the stop. Good spot for a malt or milkshake.

Fantastic little American diner on bay at Fisherman's Wharf. Lovely breakfast at a great price. You can watch your food being cooked on the hot plate while listening to tunes from 50s America

Only a small establishment but managed to get seated straight away. Service was quick and food good. Would recommend the BLT if only wanting a snack.

Stopped here for lunch after a duck tour. It was busy, we struggled for a table and the service was quite slow. Our milk shakes arrived almost as we were finishing our food. The milkshake was lovely and the hotdog was good but I thought it was expensive for what it was! Go for the old time diner feel rather... More

Usual breakfast diner choices but done well. Basic drink selections. No espresso. No apple juice. Tried to get hot milk for my son - not possible only cold. Nothing really wrong with this place but nothing to make you want to return either!

It's a chain, yes, but it still has a yesteryear Americana charm about it. That combined with the great burgers and fries and sauces make this a great experience with great quality food. Prices are a little more than Burger King and the like but well worth it.

I do not normally visit chains on vacation, but we were pressed for time... It was not worth writing home about and only recommend it as a last resort. Beach Street Grill is not far and much better!

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
