    Supposedly one of the oldest bar in San Fran. It was made from a ship from over 100 years ago. Had no nostalgia at all. Felt like a regular bar. With ok food and some local ale.

    I don't know what's good here on a day to day, but I know what ain't: breakfast. It's cheap & filling (& simplistic), but if you're looking for satisfying and tasty, try somewhere else. Also cash only

    I would highly suggest the Ruben with sweet potato fries! One of the best I have ever had!! Pauly is a great friendly guy behind the bar, and the owner Bill knows how to treat his customers!

    A pub that's always packed for weekday happy hours. It's got a nice vibe but is often too loud for comfortable conversation. Get the fries.

    Always a good spot for happy hour. Lunch menu is awesome. Try the kale caesar, Diablo burger, and anything with fried chicken.

    Just a standard no BS pub with a quick bartender. Decent burger to go with it all.

    Vegetable soup was really good! And the bartender was super nice and gave it to me for free since the kitchen had just closed. #jobwelldone

    Good selection of beers on tap. Tasty pub food. Try the hush puppies. And get there early for lunch or you will have a long wait.

    Good ole fashioned pub goodness served in a brick-walled space. It sits on the site of an “Old Ship” wreck from the mid-1800s. Teri says to get some chips with cheese and sausage or peppercorn gravy.

    The regular wings are spicy. If you are up for some serious pain (or a bet) try the extra spicy.

    This spot was final resting space for the Arkansas, a ship that wrecked on Alcatraz, was bought for a song, and got towed to what would later become the corner of Battery and Pacific Streets.

    Order the onion rings. Hand-tossed fried goodness. De-licious!
