Critic Reviews

Fresh seafood counter seating and a friendly crew add up to a great San Francisco dining experience. The wait is worth it. - Michael Bauer

Iceberg lettuce still has a place in this world and that's under a pile of crab shrimp or lobster and a puddle of Louie dressing.

Seafood doesn't get any fresher but there is minimal cooking in this diner style SF institution.

A San Francisco original. Fresh-off-the-boat seafood in a counter-service setting

Great people serving and wonderful, fresh seafood with THE BEST dungenous crabs when available. I go at least once every trip to the city, sometimes twice in 1 day!
