Stumbled across this bar whilst exploring at fisherman's wharf…and I have to say, I'm glad we did!! The 2 for 1 mimosa deal was well worth it!! The bar is well decorated and has a classic vibe to it. The bar staff (we were served by Kenny) are very friendly (as was the owner). Loved this place!! I only wish i had gone their in the evening, when they have live music playing.

My wife and I were visiting San Francisco and decided to get a warm drink on a cold evening walking in the Fisherman's Wharf area. We walked into the Gold Dust and found it to have a nice decor with several patrons at the bar. We decided to sit at one of the side tables, all of which were empty. The place was a little busy but definitely not packed or crowded. The bartender watched us walk in and sit down however, he never once acknowledged us nor did he ever come over to talk to us. We sat there for 20 minutes and the bartender stood at the bar talking to patrons the entire time. We tried to get his attention but he continued to talk to various patrons at the bar and completely ignored us. There appeared to be no one else waiting tables in the establishment and so we finally got up and left. The bartender watched us walk out and never said a word to us as we left. I recommend going anywhere else in the Fisherman's Wharf area as you will definitely be treated better someplace else. (The bar at Ciopinno's Restaurant is nice and the staff are very friendly. That is where we ended up getting our warm drinks and excellent service.)

We went in to the lounge two times and waited 15 minutes - never saw a server and was ignored standing at the bar. At least we got to use the restrooms

It's worth noting two things. First, the lounge has moved to the Fisherman's Wharf area. Second, there's no food here--just drinks.

With that said I had a fun and enjoyable time here with their decent selection of draft beers and variety of mixed drinks. They have a very long bar, and frequently have live musicians playing at night. With a number of HDTVs, it's also a decent place to try and watch a game.

If you're looking for a place to get some good drinks in the Fisherman's Wharf area, check out the Gold Dust Lounge.
