Sign says Wold Famous Crab Roll. Don't get the crab roll. We thought it was quite bland and very expensive. Fish and chips were edible but can get just as good in land locked Texas. Beer was good and service was fair.

Went everyday for the happy hour on our recent visit to SF. Caught the last of the sun on the front for a cold beer and a basket of chicken wings. Happy hour prices are good $5 beer and wine. Well worth a visit

Great food, simple service, kind of what you would expect for a quick, authentic wharf meal. I had the fish & chips and my wife had the crab sandwich and we both were happy. Don't expect flair and over the top service, just quality food.
