Fantastic location and fantastic food! My wife used to come here when she lived in San Francisco over 20 years ago and wanted the Crab Louie salad. It was still on the menu! Crab cakes were delicious, service was super friendly and perfect location for catching up with friends and their kids. The weather was glorious and the views from the deck were awesome. Will certainly return the next time we're in San Francisco!
Our service was horrible. The server wasn't rude or anything, it just took us forever to get anything. Some things just never came out at all - I had to go up to the kitchen area to bring back bottles of ketchup, malt vinegar, forks and knives, water, etc. It was just all really bad, and the food had clearly been sitting for a long time - we just didn't have time to wait for another option.
We arrived early and were happily seated immediately. Service was prompt and attentive. The menu is mostly classics, but they are done very well. And the chef went out of his way to accommodate my dietary restrictions, which is rarer than it ought to be. The cocktails were good, but, again, not inventive. The setting is so charming and the day was beautiful so the view of the Bay was a knockout. I'd recommend this spot anytime and will be back again myself.
Great, table looking over the bay! Nice seafood apps and entrees. We will be back!
Good food and drinks. Super deck on Frisco Bay. Good looking crowd. Go there all the time. Went to their 90th anniversary a few years back. Fine benefits. Wear a flower in your lapel, guarantees a nice kiss on the cheek from a young maiden at the bar.
Bring your sunglasses and a hat if you sit outside for brunch. Service was ok. Had to ask twice for a couple of things. My girlfriends plate had a hair on it that wasn't hers...at least they took that off the bill. Still came to $170 for 4 adults 1 child. $200 with the tip.
I came in for my birthday this past Saturday and made a reservation for 2. The host seated us and gave us menus. After 10 minutes passed without anyone checking on us or even taking our drink order, we walked out and had a much better evening elsewhere.
Food and Value ratings are N/A as we didn't stay.
What can be better than Sunday brunch on the deck in the sun over the water?
My girlfriend and I went to Sam's for the first time this past weekend and had a terrific time. Great wait staff, great bartender, great view and steps away from the ferry to SF. We will definitely be back!
nice view, good service. Excellent food, especially the blue cheese garlic bread
