Diner Reviews
  • "In a city full if great restaurants don't waste an evening on this one. This restaurant is average at best. Beef briscuit was served as little cubes not sliced traditionally and was fatty. Ribs and sides were nothing special. Service was unfriendly. Server was annoyed when I asked for a lime when she brought my Corona without one. I just think there are better options. "

  • "for arriving at 7pm, they were already out of brisket and meatloaf! had heard about the meatloaf and had to settle for ribs, pulled pork, fried chicken and links;still not bad; sauce little spicy for me, and the pork portion of the duo could have been a little more generous;not sure why friend chicken cost $3 more on the duo..mgr was gracious and acknowledged birthday w/ comp dessert; overall well priced and friendly..would go again."

  • "Traveling with kids and just got into SF. Took the cable car from Union Sq to the last stop, and a short walk to Ghirardelli Square. Was greeted promptly, had a nice window table with a 'reserved' sign from the Open Table reservation not an hour prior that set the stage for a great meal. BBQ was fantastic, both ribs and brisket, as was the truffle mac and cheese. Nice selection of on tap local brews. Attentive, friendly service that was just right. Kids wanted to return a few days later, and despite a few fine dining experiences in between it was The Pub they liked best. Very good prices, good portion size, great taste, great service. Hit the spot!"

  • "The reservation process was very smooth over the website - no need to call or wait for an e-mail back, just had the confirmation on the spot. The service was quick and the food very tasty."

  • "We were a group of four coming for dinner and to watch a game. We specifically chose this restaurant for the atmosphere and scenery. I specifically indicated which game we were coming to watch, however, upon arrival we were seated at our reserved table which had one designated tv straight above our heads. We had a hard time viewing the tv and requested to be moved which they were happy to do but were not able to change any other tv's for us to watch. The bar eventually filed completely with a very large party cheering for another game (which was totally fine) but there were other tv's on cartoons that they refused to change the channel for us. We were very disappointed."

  • "Had guests from Europe and wanted a nice restaurant for Sunday Brunch at a reasonable price. After spending hours on Google looking for a place which offered this and also a nice view, I settled on The Pub because of location and they had recently introduce Sunday Brunch with champagne. The brunch menu consised of breakfast burrito and a very few other items. The champagne was mimosa. We all settled for the BBQ ribs, which were very good. Should not advertise brunch, best to stick with their main things, BBQ. For being a Sunday with beautiful weather, there were very few people there which should have been the first clue. It is a sports bar with tvs everywhere."

  • "I'm a bit picky on BBQ coming from Chicago and having spent time in the south and southwest. The BBQ was a bit overworked but the flavors were there. The staff were friendly and it wasn't too crowded or too empty. It is a proper pub for grabbing a bite and you won't leave disappointed. I was searching for great BBQ in SF and I am still searching but it was good and again, the staff were great. Worth a trip but probably not a regular haunt."

  • "Bottom line - this is a sports bar with food. That is not how the website portrays the venue, so we went in with expectations of a nicer restaurant than it was. Food was OK, but atmosphere not what we had hoped....TVs everywhere, lots of noisy sports fan. Just be aware of the type of restaurant and you should be fine."

  • "We had a last minute Saturday afternoon reservation for two families with 5 kids. The service was accommodating, the location had a wonderful view of Alcatraz. The food was delicious and perfect for a family. I would highly recommend the Pub."

  • "Great spot, my boyfriend and I found this spot last minute and valentines day and didn't know what to expect. The food was Louisiana style with a nice kick! Everything on my plate was delicious. They also give you large portions, so sharing is definitely an option. The staff was kind and the atmosphere is laid back with a relaxed vibe. There's a cute little bar too, if you just want to enjoy some drinks. Nice spot for dates or just to chit chat with a friend. Ambiance is laid back and personal"

  • "Generally I come late nights, for the bar menu, and usually it is quiet. This time, it was more occupied, but still relatively quiet, the food was great, the server and host were great, very nice and accommodating, and who can not love the view across the bay to Sausalito, Angel Island and Marin!? Yes, it is a pub, but it is a great late night neighborhood gem, has space for groups, and in a strange way, if its raining outside, can be quite romantic at night. I love this place, and definitely return and sometimes bring friends."

  • "My friend and I were looking for a place by Ghiradelli and found The Pub. After looking at the menu, we had to go. I ordered the Little Lucca slider and side Mac n cheese. My friend ordered so many sides plus the tater tots. It was all amazing! Service was great and we were carefully looked after throughout our meal. Now the noise level was pretty quiet. However, it was a slow night. I'm unsure how it would be normally. Great place to check out! My friend and I will be visiting again!"

  • "Gave it a "quiet" for noise level, but we were there about 6 PM during the week, so it probably gets a little more active later."

  • "Our family loved this restaurant. This place has wonderful service and made everyone in our family feel welcomed. We have two school aged children. The manager brought over kids crayons for them. Our waiter listened and took their order. I noticed that there were tables of all ages. Families with kids and also groups of twentysomethings having dinner or hanging out at the bar. It had a nice crowd of people. The food was good. We enjoyed our sandwiches, salads, and ribs. It also had an amazing view of the bay."

  • "I googled a whole bunch of places around the area for my birthday trip to San Francisco for the day and stumbled upon this place. I read the good reviews and decided to make a reservation for my group of 7 big people and one 17 month old...I am so glad that we decided to keep the reservation and try it! The food was fantastic, the service was awesome - all very nice and accommodating - even with a little one. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed it very much. Highly recommend this place!!"
