    Great for live music and cocktails but the food is overpriced for what it is. The hamburger for $15 is really awful, and cheaply done. I would come back for the cocktails.

    The cauliflower salad is so delicious and filling! It's heavy as a salad tbh because of all the cauliflower but that won't stop you from finishing that thing because it's DELICIOUS! Great cocktails

    Funky cocktail bar- not too crowded at 4 on a Friday afternoon.

    Ask the bartender to make you a cocktail off the menu- their choice. They will ask a few questions and then come up with a great drink.

    Two Anchor Steams ($6 each) and a free lunch. Fancy lunch, but have to buy two drinks first. (OH DARN)

    Get a cozy booth and sip on the proper cocktails the fine barmen and women of Comstock prepare. Pass on the food which is greasy and heavy, though the Spéculos marshmallow cookie is silly good.

    Everyone in the dining room shouts at each other as if shouting is the normal conversation tone. Not sure why everyone speaks so loudly, but it's effin loud in here. Maybe I'm grumpy or something.

    Some of the kindest waitstaff you'll ever encounter. Get drunk off Sazeracs while you wait for a table at Tony's Pizza Napoletana.

    Try the Hangtown Toast - Pickled eggs, oyster dressing, bacon on toast. Very interesting, particularly with a house manhattan!

    Don't miss the statue of Emperor Norton at the top of the bar or the framed Knights Templar march news clipping in the corner. Legit San Francisco history.

    If you sit at the bar, look down. It's one of the few places in the city with a trough - back in the 49er days men just whipped it out & peed in in the trough, no pesky staggering to the loo!

    Pig and a Biscuit is awesome. Pot Pie is a must. And Barkeep's Whimsey is epic (you give them some direction, i.e. 'i like whiskey' and they make you a whatever drink tickles their fancy).

    A música ao vivo é muito boa, além do hambúrguer! Mas não é uma opção muito econômica.
