    Good alternative for dining at an airport

    They have Anchor Steam on draft if you're looking for a decent beer.

    Jason DeHaan · August 1
  • Jim B.

    Claim chowder and fish taco are a great option during a lay over.

    Jim Bailey · March 22
  • Christopher B.

    This is the place to eat if you're on your way thru SFO: tasty menu complies with Monterey Aquarium Seafood Watch. Try the steelhead salmon salad with an Anchor Steam on tap.

  • David S.

    They have malt vinegar, if you want some with your fish and chips.

  • Lauren D.

    Not as fast as expected, but breakfast sandwich was absolutely delish!

    Lauren Drogos · December 4, 2014
  • Erik M.

    Don't look too much at the menu. They were out of ingredients for most of the seafood dishes we tried to order.

    Probably my best airport food experience to date, which isn't saying too much. Steak and Eggs was surprisingly really well cooked... Could've used more seasoning, but again, expectations were exceeded

    SteveHult · September 24, 2014
  • Toby B.

    Terrible service. Waited 10 minutes to take my order, no drink. Left after 25 minutes. Shame. It smelled great.

    Salad is great

    Fahed Aladdin · August 1, 2014
  • Ian H.

    Painfully slow for me, despite claiming to deliver a fast breakfast.

    Ian Harrison · July 11, 2014
  • Christine F.

    The butterscotch pudding is very fresh tasting.

    Christine Fatta · June 4, 2014
  • Ben H.

    Above average for an airport restaurant.

    Ben Haynes · May 17, 2014
  • Mary L.

    the seafood linguini is really yummy!

    Mary Li · February 6, 2014

    Right in front of the security gate

    Anthony Lee · December 8, 2013
  • Ariel Z.

    They have granola w yogurt for breakfast and the granola is really good!

    Ariel Zach · November 13, 2013
  • Nathan W.

    Breakfast pretty bad, 2 eggs, 2 overcooked bacon $22, GB is next door and better, had that last trip.

    Nathan Whipple · October 23, 2013
  • Dale L.

    1) Maila is a spectacular waitress! 2) We go out of our way to schedule flights so we can have breakfast here (the Tillamook cheddar and chive omelette, with fresh dungeness crab if you prefer).

    Dale Larson · August 9, 2013
  • Grace B.

    I've had to eat at many airports and this restaurant is actually edible and more satisfying than most. Definitely eat here if you had a choice and a delay. Which is likely...

    Grace Burns · August 5, 2013
  • Lauren B.

    Service blows! Don't go here servers are incompetent.

    Lauren Bear · July 19, 2013
  • Ben E.

    Tasty fish and chips. Tiny serving. Not a great value for their premium pricing.

    Ben Elgart · July 15, 2013
  • Edward C.

    Great clam chowder and lobster roll.

    Edward Cha · June 25, 2013
  • Jane K.

    Clam chowder is loaded with veggies and clam bits. Makes it worth the price. Consistency is more watery than I'm used to but doesn't mean it's bland. One negative - A bit too much pepper for my taste.

    Jane Kim · May 29, 2013

    Great Clam Chowder

    Hirohide Arimoto · May 11, 2013
  • Jeffrey M.

    Always has ipa on tap, but the fruit flies are a bit disconcerting.

    Jeffrey Makowka · April 18, 2013
  • Andre

    Get the chowder

    Andre · March 17, 2013
  • Eater

    Yankee Pier claims to fly in its seafood twice daily. Lobster, crab, and chowder can be found on the menu, as well as the "All-at-Once Speedee Meal"—perfect for those rushing to a connecting flight.

    Eater · February 12, 2013
  • m. d.

    Clam chowder is actually decent and not goopy. Fast service and good food.

    m. d. · February 10, 2013
  • Brian L.

    Served by Emilo & Maila this AM. As previous commenters pointed out, both were phenomenal: attentive service calibrated to the morning flyer. Wish some high end restaurants I've been had this. Kudos.

    Brian Lin · January 9, 2013
  • Brian L.

    Very pleasantly surprised with this airport diner - great breakfast, attentive & friendly service, they make an early morning flight seem tolerable - indeed, desirable! Will definitely comeback.

  • Wayne H.

    Fantastic customer service. I was quite disappointed in the food when it arrived due to my expectations being off, as well as the limited options but the waitress handled the situation superbly.

    Wayne Hall · October 27, 2012
  • JSToGo

    The food here is quite worthy, especially for an airport restaurant. Prices we on the high side but it was worth it.

    JSToGo · October 1, 2012

    Great food, amazing for an airport. Got a nice blackened piece of fish with some killer spinach.

    Erik · September 19, 2012
  • Camryn B.

    WORST SERVICE EVER!!! no attempt of waiting on you and just stares at you awkwardly. Basically they suck

    Camryn Burton · September 3, 2012
  • Alex M.

    In terms of airport food it's pretty good. Fresh crab!

    Alex Merwin · June 27, 2012
  • Tom W.

    Bowl of chowder and a n Anchor Steam draft make for a very nice start before an afternoon flight. ✈

    Tom West · June 18, 2012

    Exceeded my airport food expectations. Excellent service, ask for Emilo, he's the best!!

    Far exceeded my airport restaurant expectations. Watched the chef from behind the bar and he was into it with intensity. And it showed, dinner was fantastic.
