Hard Water is an impressive whiskey bar, something I only realized after I booked their charming bu slightly odd minimalist space for a large brunch. The food was fantastic, but it did feel like we were asking a bar to do something they weren’t that comfortable with service wise by having brunch for nine. Would definitely recommend for a client drink or a drop in weekend lunch for a few people
If you like whiskey and bourdon, this is the place to go! Tasty snack food, great drinks and cool ambiance. We had a wonderful date night - Thank you!
Food and drinks Very Tasty!! if you like Whisky and Southern (New Orleans) inspired food in a bar setting, this is tops. Pork Belly appetizer is a must, enough to share or bring leftover home for breakfast.
The food isn’t delicious and the atmosphere is great for conversation. The drinks are delicious and the staff are very kind.
gathered friends for a birthday celebration. the venue is perfect for reserving bar space and the staff couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. would highly recommend.
Large selection of bourbon cocktails, with a variety of upscaleNew Orleans and Nashville-style appetizers and entrees.
Fast service at high/bar tableland bar.
An easy walk from the ferry building, Hard Water is a great place for a date. We tried the fried chicken five pieces and shared it. Food was great! We sipped on a flight of six different whiskeys. Service was fantastic, and host was amazing.
We will go again and recommend friends.
Overall, the service was poor. The waiter was smug and not friendly. The food went down from last year.
The place is super cool looking; its wooden stools are a bit uncomfortable, but I get the look. I was super disappointed that there were no fresh food options available, although on the menu. This left us unable to eat and stay longer. The location is fabulous--fun place to meet friends.
Good stuff, love their fried chicken, especially the spicy Nashville style . Side are good and the whiskey selection is ample and excellent. Also, right along the waterfront in Pier 3, so views of the Bay Bridge and the Embarcadero also make for a pleasant experience. Only downer was our culinary guide who took an excessive time to take our order and made only one pass at checking on how our meal was progressing. But, when in SF, pop over for a bite and a drop of whiskey.
