The worst service I have ever received, the barman was rude, totally unprofessional, and tried to intimate the women. I would never ever recommend this bar to anyone, it definitely isn't tourist friendly! Avoid it, there are far far better bar/restaurants around.

Called in here for a drink, sat outside with an amazing view over the water and right next to where the cruise liners dock. Great atmosphere relaxing on the harbour wall, taking in the view! Coit Tower is also visible.

I went here with my family after a trip to the exploratorium. I’m not really a seafood person so I ordered the steak which was the most expensive thing on the menu but the steak was amazing! We also sat outside by the water which...More
