Comfy pub style food and drinks in a lively bar. Very large portions for what Aussies ads used too but good food.

I've been going to Harvey's for years and missed it since I left SF. On a recent visit to the city, I stopped in to see it busy as usual, but inviting and a friendly waiter who offered me a vegan ranch wrap, which was DELICIOUS..!

I visited the Castro area and i went there for taking breakfast because the place is ideal! It is in the busiest corner of Castro district and the bar-restaurant has got very warm and comfortable environment! I went before the happy hour , when it was not crowded, so the service was fast and the staff was kind and helpful!... More

Food is not good. We got Chilli and a salad and both were not tastey. The chicken tasted frozen and not fully warmed.

Still a comfortable and friendly Castro Bar and Gril. Mucosa was excellent and hamburger and fries very satisfying. Busy and high energy with open windows that allow you to view all the activities on 18th St and Castro, the heart of the neighborhood.

The food was good, but the service was really bad. The waitress was rude and clearly didn't like his job.

Splendid, easy and nice! Even in between lunch and dinner 15-17, the menu offered really tasty dishes. Quick, happy, nice and easy serving. Atmosphere joyful. Prices modest. Happy hour drinklist 16-18.

Neighbourhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
