This is a pleasant, not over-priced stop for simple comfort food. It is also child friendly, which is what we were seeking with family from out-of-town. We were there on a quiet Thursday afternoon for a late lunch. My relatives had a fish burger with fries and a hamburger. They were tasty and well received. I had an omelette with... More

My husband and I stopped in after a long day of sightseeing for a light dinner. We had a heavy lunch, so were looking for something light and healthy. We both ordered chicken salads, which hit the spot. Nice greens, a good amount of chicken - it was an all-around nice salad. The price was reasonable too. Staff and service... More

Situate on Ghirardelli Square with a great view of the waterfront this is a pretty decent old school american diner complete with cutàlq up yellow cab cashier counter and chesterfield posters. Great hot dogs,sandwiches(with lots of caramelized onions) and salads. Excellent service and very polite staff. Loved the root beer float! Reasonably priced and will recommend

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
