We visited here on one of the worst smoke days of the California “Camp Fire”. Besides poor air quality, we could not even see the Golden Gate Bridge. That said, it couldn’t take away from the festive atmosphere of the place. Most of the shops...More

Colorful sights, some decent eateries, but everything, from food to souvenirs, was quite overpriced. Even the tour buses talk about this on their routes...wait till you get away from Fisherman's Wharf to make your purchases. Fun to people watch, with street performers and just plain...More

The famous Fishermans Wharf is a must see when visiting the Bay Area. There are a number of touristy shops and restaurants. Scouma's is a fabulous seafood restaurant and don't miss the sea lions who have taken over a lot of the pier.

If you’re in the area it’s worth a walk around to see the amazing street entertainers. Great atmosphere on the streets. Lots more shops and eateries. Pier 39 is better.

Was here 20 years ago. Was a whole other place. You need to go there but expect allot of non local people.

We stopped here on our visit to San Fran. Definitely touristy and busy but they had lots of food options as well as shops around.

Enjoyed walking the Fisherman’s Warf area. Good variety of souvenirs shops and restaurants. If you get a chance, have a pizza at the sour dough bread factory or visit the Krispy Creme donut shop yo see how they make the donuts and even taste one,

I didn’t see a single place that wasn’t wheelchair friendly, with the exception of a cut through door that we took to see the Sea Lions. All in all... Awesome place to visit.
