“Clam chowder bland”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I ordered the clam chowder in a sourdough bread. The clam chowder tasted bland and the bread not fresh. Its location, right in the middle of touristy Fisherman's Wharf, could explain its poor standard like many eateries catering to tourists

“Good chowder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

This is not a gourmet restaurant experience. That's obvious from the outset, but it is good wholesome enjoyable food. We had the crab chowder and the clam chowder on two occasions and it was very good both times. That's it, nothing more to say.

It's a nice place to sit and watch the wharf. I didn't feel that the food was anything stellar but it does the trick.

“Not bad, had better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Cheap and satisfying for what you pay for. Their are a lot better around and a lot worse. Situated down in the touristy area you get the touristy taste and service. During happy hour they just want to sit as manypeople down as possible. Atmosphere is average as well inside. Busker playing outside was amazing here and got the crowd smiling.
So many other places around to try, wouldnt recomend it as a place you have to try on short trip
