We wanted a restaurant close to our hotel after a long day of walking. After reading the reviews on TA decided to give The Pub a try. We were seated quickly, portion were very large and food was tasty. Several sport games were on TV, Cold beer, pricy but right in line with San Francisco restaurants. Would definitely stop by...

We were having a hard time finding a place for lunch that wasn't crowded. After walking into the Buena Vista Cafe and seeing how crowded it was we kept walking towards Ghirardelli Square. We walked into the Pub and sat down immediately. The kids had the kids meals and I had the braised pork soup. It was spicy but good... More

We had a reservation, but I don't think we needed it. The place wasn't very busy but we waited a few minutes for our table. We ordered wings, sliders, a platter with ribs, brisket and sides and the Reuben sandwich. All were yummy and devoured. The service was good. The staff was friendly. The atmosphere is BBQ/Pub just like the... More

We went for dinner after walking around the Ghirardelli Square. The food and service were good. Our meals were very big so we couldn't finish them.

Being from the South The Pub was a real treat! Our party consumed chili, chicken tortilla soup, bbq sliders, a bbq Sammy, and a Reuben. Place was busy so took some time to get the food--worth the wait! Staff was friendly...made sure we had everything we needed.

The Pub has a nice lunch menu and a good barbecue selection. I had the pulled pork sandwich which delicious and came with a side of fresh French fries! The service is fine and the prices are reasonable considering the last cation and views.

We were seated outside and I'm not sure why but it took quite awhile for our server to come out to take our orders. We almost got up and left. We kept watching bus boys and other waitstaff. They all saw us waiting for service. She never offered an apology in the delay. Most of the rest of the experience... More

I found The Pub by chance whilst walking in the Marina district. I thought I'd give it a try and I'm so glad I did. I sat at the bar and ordered a club burger and drink. The food is excellent and the atmosphere very relaxed but what sets this place aside from other places is the staff. As a... More

Ordered truffle Mac and cheese with no bacon, as I am a vegetarian. Came full of bacon. Hard to find a server to let them know, by time found server she didn't apologise, just said won't you eat it? Which I was bemused as I ordered it without in the first place. I said no, then she removed it, brought... More

My wife and I had just flown into the City from Seattle headed for Marin. Rather than fight the Friday night commuter traffic on the Bridge, we decided to have dinner at the Pub and drive to San Anselmo later. We were seated promptly and Sean, our waiter, was taking our order within minutes. We both ordered their Pot Roast... More
