I have been to Grumpy's twice now. I ordered a Bloody Mary which came with a stick of bacon in it. Was delicious. They have great breakfast and lunch. I had the egg and cheese sandwich which came with potatoes to die for. Crispy on...More

I very rarely give one dot but a colleague and I recently dropped in for lunch. The place seemed to be what we were looking for. Then my fish and chips came out and after the first lukewarm bite I discovered my fish was still...More

This a small pub but has a great atmosphere and food. I had a mushroom brie burger that was fabulous. Will definitely be back again.

We followed a path suggested by the tour person at Coit Tower and found ourselves in the vicinity of Grumpy's. Not a lot of places to eat, so we grabbed a table outside. Fast service. Great food. No ambiance or view, but steady stream of...More

Think of Grumpy's as a bar that also serves some good food. The bar atmosphere is front and center and, quite frankly, what gives it personality. It's not fancy. And seems like a hangout for the advertising crowd. But the beer is nice and cold....More

Ever since it changed from McGovern's (and JC's Saloon before then) this place has morphed into something that may have pretenses of being a dive bar but really is not. That being said, Happy Hour is lively and cheap and the lunch fare is quite...More

A good selection of beer in a bar. Make no mistake about it, Grumpy's is a bar, not a high est, overpriced place, but a good neighborhood bar to grab a beer and chat with your friends or whomever else happens to be on the...More

Friendly bartender with a decent selection of beers on draft and bottle and bar food. It's a relatively small place and you do have to go to the bar for service which is awkward as it gets more crowded in its small space. It's probably...More

I went here because I was looking for somewhere to have a burger and watch some football. Maybe it is me but I expect there to be staff if I am not sitting at the bar. I waited for a server and, seeing others going...More

My wife and I came here while on our honeymoon. While planning the trip, I originally wanted to find a place to eat between Chinatown and the Exploratorium, but that soon changed when we had to rearrange our plans due to Alcatraz's limited availability. However,...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
