Actually disgusted with the way we were treated whilst in this bar. Having spent a lot of money the previous night. The tall bar tender was so off hand with both myself and my partner on a few separate occasions. The management should pursue him with a disciplinary for his appalling attitude and behavior. Slamming drinks and your bill down... More

Really great food. Yummy cottage pie corned beef and cabbage, it's all good. Noisy and raucous on a weekend but great pub. Definitely recommend

We loved this bar & had our first meal in San Francisco there as it was really near our hotel. We called twice more for drinks in our way out & decided to eat there again last night. Although the food was still fantastic our waiter was not! We had to wait ages for him to take our order, he... More

If you want a nice respite from the streets and the ever-present cloud of dope smoke on the streets of San Francisco, this is a nice, classy place to stop in for an afternoon refreshment. The decor is deep stained wood paneled. Bartenders are old school and professional. Very very nice place.

We dropped in for lunch to escape the rain. I had a great corned beef and cabbage lunch and my husband had a sandwich that could have been shared by both of us. Irish music plays in the background and the decor is sports/Irish pub. Restuarant is located right in the main shopping area. Service was fine.

Called in here for a break from shopping. It was around 5pm when a lot of places in the city have happy hour-not here. Ambience was nice and it feels like a proper pub, but a pint of local beer and half a Guinness came to $15-ouch! I'm sure the food is good, though we didn't stay. If you just... More

Brought to this fine place by son in law. Must say he has great taste. Excellent selection of Irish brew and whiskey. The food was amazing. Saw some deserts that if I hadn't been so full I would have torn them up. Stop by its worth it.

A real pub, great drinks, great food, unbeatable decoration. Guinness served perfectly, friendly service, great decoration and wonderful location. What more can you ask for? Lower prices for the Guinness, yes maybe, but this place is outstanding.
