    Great place to eat in Fisherman's Wharf. If you go during the evening ask for a window seat where you can see The Bay Bridge all lit-up. Also ask for a wild berry lemonade - you can keep the glass.

    Awesome food! I'm not too much of a shellfish kind of person, but this place lives up to its hype. Try to get a seat next to the windows for an amazing view of the bay

    First time being there today and I have to say it was an okay place. I ordered the Scampi Shrimp pasta and for the price I thought I was going to get a large portion but it was so small! Sadness.

    Legendary place, specially for Forrest Gump fans. Of course, you need to try shrimps, they are yummy and not expensive.

    I do recommend ordering the Blueberry Lemonade! I usually order Strawberry Lemonade anywhere but the waiter said to try the Blueberry Lemonade and man it was so good! Try it!!

    Shrimper's heaven with a great view of SF bay. Try blueberry lemonade, shrimp mac'n cheese, coconut shrimp, cajun shrimp. You'll love it !

    This place seemed to be overwhelmed even during a non peak weekday afternoon period. The food is not great by any means.

    Make sure they actually write your name down when you need to wait for a table. We waited 40 minutes just to find out they never wrote our name down.

    Memories of Forrest Gump come alive at this restaurant on the 2nd story, on the far end of San Francisco's famous Pier 39

    I had a window table and the view was amazing. Bubba's special dish has more fish and shrimp than forest's

    Javier Escobar · October 5, 2013
  • Rose G.

    Their Cajun shrimp needs more spice to it! It was a bit disappointing.. But the Mahi Mahi was sooo tasty!

    Nice place. It is certainly NOT the best seafood place in town, but it very good and definitely cheaper.

  • Meltem K.

    Try dixie style baby back ribs and georgia peach ice tea! You'll get a lovely masonjar glass in return.

  • Jazmín G.

    Disappointing. The food was ok, if you choose to go, get a table by the glass windows, at least it's a nice view

    If you have a small party look for open spots in the bar to cut down on the wait time.

    Blueberry lemonade: 8. Strawberry lemonade: 7. Cajun shrimp (comes with garlic bread): 9.

    Clam chowder bowl is served in a plate, not bread. Potato is not cooked enough, while celery is over cooked.

    Chicken was good, service was great. View could have been better, had we visited in the daylight

    Most of the shrimp are fried with beer butter, ask the waiter to use regular oil!!
