    When you are on the patio you feel like you are a little bit removed from the tourists. The starters were good and served us well as lunch.

    The view, service, and food were all incredible! The crab and shrimp salad, Korean shirt rib, guacamole and pico are all amazing!! Avi was our server and was the best! Highly recommend it all!

    Great place for a birthday lunch!! There's something for everyone on the menu and you can hang out in the beer garden after!

    You come here to drink, or perhaps to have a hangover brunch, and you come here when it's sunny out. Because if the conditions are right, this is a prime spot with plenty of space to move around. Read more

    Parmesan baked oysters were huge mouthfuls of crunchy, salty and slight spicy deliciousness!

    We almost got kicked out because we were having a good time. I think the manager was jealous. Our server was amazing and wants to party with us in the future.

    Great place on the pier, great patio with water views. About a 10 minute walk from pier 39. Try the fish tacos!

    The music is too loud sometimes, but on a sunny day sitting out in the beer garden sharing calamari with friends, there's no place I'd rather be.

    Guy says if you're looking for live music, fresh delicious seafood, a huge patio and good times, you've got to head to Pier 23. Many come for the legendary NorCal oven-roasted Dungeness crab Read more
