    Magnolia's has delicious meals & appropriate morning samosa's. Drop by during breakfast for some delicious french toast or fried eggs over quinoa and vegetables with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Read more

    Great neighborhood spot on Haight for meeting up with friends. Beer selection is awesome. Food is quite good - their homemade duck pasta is outtathisworld. Be warned - there is usually a wait to sit.

    Ambience is pretty rustic old style . Decent draft beer list. Loved their IPAs . Get the Bombay nuts and maitake mushroom. The veggie pot pie was pretty good too.

    As far as I can tell, this is the only place in SF where you can get a proper pint of REAL ale, pumped from the cask and served at cellar temperature. My absolute favorite. Brits rejoice!

    The steak and eggs are amazing (brunch). **Tables outside are first come first serve - skip the long wait and enjoy the entertaining scenery of the Haight.

    This place is awesome. Great beer, great food, great atmosphere. Highly recommended. Proving Ground IPA is hugely drinkable, too. Easy to get a table when I visited on a Sunday at 8pm.

    English breakfast is pretty good, if a tad too salty. Jen really liked the chicken hash, and the French toast looks so amazing I wish I had ordered it...

    Almost certainly named after Magnolia Thunderpussy, a previous establishment named after the owner. She was a SF icon who was a burlesque dancer whose restaurant served "erotic desserts".

    Love this place. The food is fantastic - in particular, the chicken hash at brunch and the shortrib sandwich...well, anytime. Get their Tillies beer. So fresh and so clean.

    They have a large selection of their beers from the cask, meaning they are less carbonated, served at a warmer temp than from draught (55 vs 47 degrees). Trad English style

    Fish and chips were good but nothing extraordinary. The burgers, on the other hand, looks AMAZING! The beer was awesome. We loved the Weather Report and High Times brews.

    One of the only places in SF you'll find a proper cask ale. If you've ever enjoyed beer from a proper pub in Britain, find the cask menu and order a bitter.

    Great beer brewed on site. For breakfast don't miss the Brown Sugar Peppercorn Bacon. The Devils on Horseback are a great appetizer for dinner.

    Must have "Spring Ravioli" which has snap peas, fromage blanc, pioppini mushrooms, watercress-pumpkin seed pesto & squash blossom. I can't believe I haven't had it before. My favorite dish now.

    This place is known for their burger and it did not disappoint. Fries were great, too.

    Eat here. Get the burger as rare as you can handle it. Get a sausage, lamb is awesome. And the watermelon salad was also delicious. Awesome place.

    The menu changes often but know this: if there is anything with duck on the menu (pâté, confit, etc.) just get it. I love this spot.

    The spicy wings are really good. Pair them with a beer to make for a real satisfying meal

    Grab a beer at the bar or a burger in a booth, either way prepare for good flavor and a lively atmosphere.

    The best two beers I have ever tasted! Kalifornia Kolsch & New Speedway Bitter, really really good. The food is also DA BOMB!

    Craft English-inspired beer. If you are visiting Height for shopping, definitely take a stop there and relax with great beer

    Great beer! Try the Pearly Baker's Best Bitter or the Kalifornia Kolsch if you are looking for a great soft beer.

    my favorite brewery in SF. It's not all about the over hoppy beers. the music is great and it is in the heart of the Haight district.

    You can always order half pints if you want to drink a few different beers, but want to be able to walk in a straight line once you leave.

    Ben, the Brew Master, is awesome; his brews are great as well as his San Fran tips are. Also, very friendly staff!

    Twelve Magnolia beers are on tap, and you can choose from five cask ales that are carbonated and served slightly warmer.

    Amazing food and amazing beer. The devils on horseback are the best small plate you can find.

    The wine was great! The fish and chips we good, but the tartar sauce was strange, like a Caesar dressing without the Parmesan, garlic or black pepper?!?!?!?

    Fish and chips are the real deal. Wash it down with a root beer float and some awesome craft beer

    Food is good but a bit pricey, it's SF. Two words about strong beer month: old thunderpussy. Limit yourself to 2. Mimosas and brunch is good. Bar staff is always friendly. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Don't be fooled by the water damage on the walls and ceilings. It's for ambiance. Burger is really good too, and the root beer.

    Read the reviews of poor service, etc., I think they've worked out the kinks. Great service and the burgers were A M A Z I N G!
