The food is great, but they took the crab roll off the menu and replaced it with a lobster roll, but they still have crab dishes, just not the roll. The service is good but can be slow. Great beer selection. Make sure you get...More

This is a $31 lobster grinder. The most expensive I’ve ever seen and I’ve had hundreds in my lifetime. I would never have eaten at such a pricey place but my hotel sent me and said it was the best. But it was the worst!...More

Anchor and Hope is a bit out of the way (up a side street), although close to hotels and Moscone Center. It's worth finding. There's a manageable menu of well prepared dishes with a seafood emphasis. There's also a good wine list and an extensive...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter

this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
