Great food and beer selection, although the music was distractingly loud.

I went to SF Brew Co. with my team from work and had a fantastic experience. The atmosphere was energetic as there was a Warriors game going on, but it was not overwhelming at all. Our server Pol was AWESOME, and took great care of our table. The food was good for the price and the drinks were great (try the Fog City Hazy IPA).

Overall great spot if you are looking for a casual spot with good food, good atmosphere, and good drinks.

Very Poor. Didn’t keep our reservation because they informed us they were closing when we showed up. It’s Memorial Day weekend, shouldn’t be closing at 8 PM.

Heard about this place, me have been meaning to go for a while. Service was just terrible. Beers were ok, nothing really special about their selection. Bartenders were courteous, but the waiters were beyond horrible. Just order at the bar and you'll be fine. Better yet, just go to the bbq place at ghirardelli, and you'll make out better.

I had a great time celebrating my 25th birthday here. They were very accommodating and handled my 20+ party beautifully. The only point of criticism/ improvement I would give to them would be to return the phone calls. I called and left a couple of voicemails and was unable to get a hold of them to increase my initial party size. I ended up just creating additional reservations via their online website which still worked out in the end.

Great sports bar, excellent beers and regularly changing line up. Lots of atmosphere when a big game is on. Nice outdoor seating area too. Food is ok, but not amazing for the price.

I made a reservation which was accepted for lunch for my department on Tuesday. We arrived to find the restaurant closed and they told us the restaurant is now closed on Tuesdays so the reservation to Open Table should not have been accepted. I was embarrassed.

The food was very mediocre and the service was terrible. There are so many choices in San Francisco in the Fisherman’s Wharf area—do NOT choose this one.

Fun spot with a cool outdoor beer garden with fire pits and live music! In a touristy spot but it's just new so the vibe didn't feel touristy at all.

Great location with tons of potential. The server was nice. However, it was not busy and it took 30+ minutes to get a pizza. They forgot our onion rings. And we asked for no olives and they put olives on the pizza. Also, they give you tiny glasses for water and refill was slow.
Suggestion: Have a locals discount since you're in such a tourist location. It will bring business back.

We arrived at the restaurant & were immediately seated on a Saturday evening. We waited for 20 minutes but no one came to greet us. I went to hostess stand & told them. Young girl said she would get someone. She said our waiter was “preoccupied” but will be with us shortly. 10 minutes passed & still no one. I went back to hostess stand & she said she would get him. 10 minutes later he arrived at table. Restaurant was only 1/3 full. We would have left but there were long waits at every other restaurant. Once server came he was extremely friendly & attentive. Food was good. Inside of restaurant was basic.

We had great service, our waitress was attentive and helpful with menu selection. We enjoyed our snacks of bacon wrapped dates and the deviled eggs with trout- both were tasty. The Brut IPA was delicious. We will be back in our next trip into the city.

Booked in for a table of four for 6:30pm. Arrived and didn’t get seated until 6:45pm. We ordered some appetizers and main courses. At 7:25pm, after waiting a while, the mains arrived. No appetizers. We asked and were then informed the appetizers we’d ordered were sold out - would have been nice to be told that at any time during the 25 min wait. Out of the four main courses, two of the meals were cold and another meal was completely wrong. A burger with toppings came out with only one of the correct toppings. Then when all the meals arrived we had to ask for some silverware as we never got those, either. Quickly asked for check soon after. Staff tried to be nice despite the difficulties which seemed to be coming from the kitchen.

We loved our first visit to San Francisco Brewing Co. Josh and Isaac took time to talk to us and show us the brewery - great customer service! The burger and chicken sandwich were both great and we loved the “Light Flight” of beers. A+

This place is incredible! Great beer brewed right there in Ghiradelli Square! Food was also really good. You can get beers yourself using a special card. There is a neat backroom where you can see them brew the beer. I even brought my kids and they loved it. There are games, TVs, great bar and lots of SF nostalgia. I high recommend!!
