I don't often review places but I've just had a shockingly bad experience in this bar. The place was deserted apart from one foul mouthed Englishman. My partner ordered a couple of ciders and paid with a 50 dollar note. The Scot behind the bar then said it was a ten and an awkward moment occurred. My partner was willing... More

We visited this bar 3 years ago and came back on our latest visit to San Francisco. Although the layout of the bar had changed (almost halved in size) the atmosphere and staff were still top drawer. The Guinness was great, they have the best chicken wings I'v etasted in San Fran. There is always a steady flow of customer... More

We went here for a drink one evening as I searched for a decent pint of guinness. And i definitley found it here. A great atmosphere with loads of people in, an irishman behind the bar and even Jameson's whiskey on tap. Well worth a visit.

A great bar with a great atmosphere. The 805 draught is really nice. Good sized portions of food. Michael the manager was very good and great customer service.

Not prone to bad reviews on TripAdvisor but making an exception for this place. $48 for 4 beers is extortion even if the bar offers a great vibe, which this one doesn't. Dreadful place and one to avoid. Not a fan of tourist areas when I'm holidaying but when I'm in those places I expect to pay a bit more.... More

This used to be a nice Irish pub located close to the Fisherman's Wharf area. Last time in Frisco - June 2016 found this to be closed. What a loss for the neighborhood.

Have walked past this little bar numerous times and had never stopped in and glad we did. Enjoyed the feisty bartender and her Irish coffee that she claims is better than Buena Vista cafe's. Haven't had theirs so I can't claim the same. Drank a few beers with friends and had a good time.

Cheap beer, cheap eats, friendly people, a guitarist singing in the corner- what more could you want? A comfy, low-rent dive bar that is a happy watering hole. Guinness & Smithwicks plus a ton more on tap, when it gets crowded expect to feel like you're among friends.

Fun vibe for a drink. Don't eat here though, bland and boring (yes aware it's an Irish pub). Stop for a pint then keep heading down Columbus for something better

After reeding several good reviews about the atmosphere, good service and reasonable prices, we tried Fiddler's on the Green for dinner on a Tuesday night for dinner. A bottle of beer was $5 and we were there at happy hour! We previewed the menu and were lured by a $15 steak that was not available! Makes me wonder if it... More
