We made a reservation 3 months in advance. What could go wrong, right? When I tried to change the number in our party from 3 to 5 several days prior to our reserved dinner, I could not do so online for some reason. I tried calling the restaurant, but there was no answer. So, believing it might be crowded, I... More

Would recommend a visit. Great choice of beers (and other) drinks at the bar and later we came back for dinner where I had the beat brisket sandwich of our trip.

We went here on a recommendation of the guy on the trolley car. Mac and cheese with buffalo chicken was excellent along with the margarita I had. Husband had the pulled pork and enjoyed it. Nice, relaxing place.

We wanted a restaurant close to our hotel after a long day of walking. After reading the reviews on TA decided to give The Pub a try. We were seated quickly, portion were very large and food was tasty. Several sport games were on TV, Cold beer, pricy but right in line with San Francisco restaurants. Would definitely stop by...

We were having a hard time finding a place for lunch that wasn't crowded. After walking into the Buena Vista Cafe and seeing how crowded it was we kept walking towards Ghirardelli Square. We walked into the Pub and sat down immediately. The kids had the kids meals and I had the braised pork soup. It was spicy but good... More

We had a reservation, but I don't think we needed it. The place wasn't very busy but we waited a few minutes for our table. We ordered wings, sliders, a platter with ribs, brisket and sides and the Reuben sandwich. All were yummy and devoured. The service was good. The staff was friendly. The atmosphere is BBQ/Pub just like the... More

We went for dinner after walking around the Ghirardelli Square. The food and service were good. Our meals were very big so we couldn't finish them.

Being from the South The Pub was a real treat! Our party consumed chili, chicken tortilla soup, bbq sliders, a bbq Sammy, and a Reuben. Place was busy so took some time to get the food--worth the wait! Staff was friendly...made sure we had everything we needed.

The Pub has a nice lunch menu and a good barbecue selection. I had the pulled pork sandwich which delicious and came with a side of fresh French fries! The service is fine and the prices are reasonable considering the last cation and views.
