Seems to be the place to go for tourists. Very good views of the bridge and the port, but not a lot else. Tick it off the list and then move on.

And shopping. We enjoyed walking around the area, lots of interesting street performers. Great shops and too many resturants to pick from. The crab and chowder bowls looked yummy. We actually picked a great Tex mex resturant to dine outside over looking a marina. A must visit destination while in San Fran.

Total tourist trap, crappy shops and food. To many tourists around, just a low class place to go. Would never go again

Fisher mans wharf is a San Francisco icon going back to the days of the Barbary coast. If you miss it when visiting or heck, if you never go here when you love close you are missing one of the best places on earth. You can see, eat, and enjoy a variety of food, entertainment, and chocolate! Remember that ghirardelli square has great chocolates! Bourdon has great bread!
