The Pub at Ghirardelli Square rests along the end of Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Our heated patio is alive with liquid sunsets, Alcatraz sightings, and the Golden Gate silhouette. Of course, we're more than just a pretty facade with breathtaking views. Our Carolina-styled BBQ is smoked half days in-house. The bar is stacked with local brews, American familiars and borderless storytellers.

Food was ok price was pretty much in line with SF prices. The difference maker was the service, we were in SF for one day and night from Minnesota and walking in the door we were made to feel special and appreciated for our business. The host who sat us was friendly and engaging ,knew of my seating request and made sure that it happened. The waitress was efficient, happy, and outgoing. Said she was from South Dakota and engaged in Midwest banter about her home state. Those two persons are what set The Pub at Ghiaredelli Square apart from the myriad of choices to eat. Price? Ok Food? Ok
Service? Outstanding !

My cousin was in SF on a job assignment and decided to meet up to have catch-up conversation over some good bar food such as wings. Went on Open Table and saw this place and decided to give it try. The ambience was great however the wings although baked the taste was just so-so and being in fisherman‘s wharf I was in the mood for some delicious clam chowder which was just so-so.

Would I come back again or recommend… Probably not, but it was convenient to her hotel and T Fisherman’s Wharf and the drinks were pretty good.

The staff was fantastic the drinks were good the food was good I just didn’t feel for the pricing on the menu to the plate of food I received it was worth ever going again which is too bad. The cornbread had no flavor whatsoever. The brisket was good but for the price there should have been more than 3 very thin slices, my husband ordered the ribs and again for the price there should have been more than 3 ribs. My grandaughter ordered the pulled pork she actually got quite a bit. Overall I probably would not return. I don’t mind paying for a good meal but at least make me feel like I’m getting my money’s worth

I would definitely recommend the truffle mac and cheese and also the expresso Burger. They are both out of this world!!

I felt bad for our server. i will start the review by saying our server was great. She was attentive, very pleasant, and didn't mind that we sat for a while before ordering our meal. We ordered two meals. One was ok. the other (the ribs) was awful. the ribs were over cooked and so tough she couldn't bite through them. We thought it was just our bad luck, but the table next to us, a party of 4, had to send one of THEIR meals back. That is 1/3 of the meals that were inedible. I do NOT know what they sent back. we all agreed the replacement meals were acceptable but when 1/3 of your party has to eat after everyone else, that is not good. And it was early, the place was only about 20% full, so there was no excuse that the kitchen was overwhelmed. And i can say, even for those of us that were able to eat our meals first time out, the best i could rate them was acceptable. This place likely draws tourists, as i doubt it could survive on repeat business.

We waited 20 minutes for someone to take drink order. Then after another 15 minutes, we walked up to bar to say we needed our drinks and we were ready to order. Food and service was horrible!!

The food was marginal. They did not give one single piece of lettuce, tomato, onion etc with a $16 burger! Their "zagat rated" espresso burger was very lack-luster. Good fries. Not going back. 😕

Very few vegetarian options. Sloooooow service. Unreliable host wouldn't seat us, claimed to be full with an hour wait so we went across the street and booked instantly on Open Table. Will not return.

The menu at the Pub BBQ is one factor that sets this restaurant off from the many excellent eateries in San Francisco. As visitors, we found that the city offers great seafood, Italian, Italian seafood, and a few other ethnic choices. Finding a restaurant with a different emphasis offered a pleasant change.

Our meals (BBQ Brisket and a Salad) were tasty and nicely presented. Service was friendly and quick, but in no way rushed. One might describe the decor as modern industrial. Any way you describe it, the environment was comfortable. On Fisherman's Wharf at Ghidaredlli Square, the Pub is ideally located for San Francisco tourists.

We chose The Pub, looking forward to the BBQ, but as it was Sunday before 2 p.m., could only order off of the Brunch Menu. The only BBQ thing on it was the Pulled Pork Sandwich. The pig was good, but the slaw was inedibly salty. The fries were pale and undercooked, which, if they were freshly cut, made them taste frozen. Still, it was a good locale and in a pinch, I would give them another chance during full BBQ hours.
