Having recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary on Union Street, Perry’s remains an enormously popular San Francisco institution. Perry Butler initially opened Perry’s in 1969, bringing to Union Street the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood saloons of New York’s Upper East Side. The blue and white checked tablecloths, hexagonal tiled floor, wood-paneled memorabilia clad walls, and menu of American classics produced an atmosphere that has held true today-- comfortable, inviting and cool.

Testament to its timeless appeal, Perry’s is known today, as much as ever, for its classic American food, its warm personable service and a fun, bustling bar. Perry"s traditional yet innovative menu includes a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, pastas, steaks and grilled fresh fish.

    The service was terrific. The hamburger was fairly tasteless and the cheese on the potato skins was very strong. We would not order either again.

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the Perry's friendly service, but sorry that you found the Hamburger to be lackluster and the Potato Skins to be too strong in flavor. We hope that you will choose to return down the road and try some of our other menu items!

    Great food. Pot roast is fantastic, so tender! Although weird to have snap peas as your vegetable. Where are carrots and onions? Very noisy! Do not go if you want to have a conversation with others at the table.

    Overall, the food was good - however, the mashed potatoes were cold and we reported it to our server who was happy to replace them. But the replacement was not that much better. Maybe the cooking staff needs to monitor temperatures better.

    Every time we come to Perry’s, we have a great experience. The service and food are always great and the menu is reasonably priced in comparison to other places. The ambience especially around the holidays is really nice. They are great to our kids vs some places that don’t like to serve children. All around one of our fave places to go out to. We especially like the Union St and Larkspur locations.

    Although I have lived in the Bay Area for over 60 years, I have never vistited Perry's! Great food and ambience! AND a parking garage is right next door! Very convenient since Union Street is VERY busy and metered parking is limited and surrounding street parking is also very limited. Had a great time catching up with my best friend!

    Perry’s at Union Street is a classic SF eatery. Great comfort food (onion straws, pot roast, sliders, baby back ribs) and more sophisticated offerings (grilled artichokes) and an extensive wine list. It’s part bar scene, part just good food and service. Hard to beat this SF classic for dinner with friends or family.

    We had the most lovely time! Thoroughly enjoy this SF tradition! We are partial to the Perry Burger. Big. Luscious. Juicy. Some of the best fries in the City. And the onion strings are done to perfection! The service was superb. My water glass was never empty and refills for my ice tea were plentiful! Love Perry’s on Union Street!!
