After a long day, we were looking for a relaxing, low-cost, comfort food option, and this was perfect. Great burgers, large menu, fun decor.

The service was slow and the food was cold and no refills on the coffee was offered cause the waitstaff was not even present. Hello, Hello....how can you run a restaurant without any staff? Moderately priced but that was all it was worth. My advice, find another place.

Sunday morning 10am. No waiting, a surprise. Delicious omelet, cold toast. No hot sauce save Tabasco. Very understaffed. No asks for refills of coffee. Could get no one's attention for same. Very, very slow from the time we ordered unsourced food arrived. No need to return.

We stopped in here for breakfast/brunch on our first morning in San Francisco. We'd just flown in that morning. It was fleet week and a Saturday, so everything was pretty crowded but there wasn't a wait. We were lucky enough to snag a table right outside with a great view of the water. Some of us ordered breakfast and others... More

We were looking forward to so good diner food, but the shrimp on the salad was tasteless, hot dogs nothing special. Did enjoy the milkshakes and fries. Service was disappointing too.

Great view of the bay! It was very quiet when we arrived, and were able to sit near the windows. Sitting outside on a hot day would be awesome. We ordered a club sandwich to share (we were hungry, but were planning a larger dinner later in the evening). Nothing special about the food, but it's a club sandwich. It... More

This is a cool restaurant with a fifties feel. Old cars, soda fountain etc. oh and the food was very good also. Next door to Ghirardelli chocolate.
