I was apprehensive to visit here after reading many reviews saying restaurants along pier 39 were generally overpriced and low quality due to it being such a tourist trap. Fog harbor couldn't be further from the truth, while not cheap, the food was amazing!

I went for cerviche, oysters and steak & lobster tail, all absolutely fantastic. Couldn't fault it. We were a group of 4 and everybody agreed it was one of the best places we had eaten!

Thank Redblu88

This is an all round great place to eat for lunch or dinner. Beautiful views of the harbour and the food was delicious (including the sourdough bread). The server was also really welcoming and the staff were all very attentive. Would definitely recommend a visit here!

This was one of our favorite restaurants of our trip. The linguini and clams are fantastic. The fresh sourdough bread is served warm with butter. The chowder is good for the area, but not New England good, if you know what I mean? The salad was the only thing that was ordinary, but the seafood made up for it. You will want a reservation or plan on waiting 30 or more minutes for a table. It is worth the wait, and they have an outdoor living room with a fireplace and water wall to enjoy while you wait. You can also hear music from the Pier, so time goes quickly. Our server was Curtis, and he was fantastic. Just the right level of pampering and care, but not overbearing. We watched the sun set over the bay, watched the ships sail past, all while enjoying this fabulous food. It is also one of the more reasonably priced seafood places in the Wharf area.

My hubby and I along with another couple ate here while site seeing at the Pier. Someone there recommended it. OMG, the dungeness crab had just come in the week we were there. We had never eaten that type of crab. We are from the south and typically eat a dozen blue crabs at at time. So you can imagine our waiters face when we asked how many we needed to order. He pointed to the guy at the next table who was eating a crab and said that is one. It was HUGE, so needless to say we got just one. The food here is amazing, the drinks are great too! It is a little pricey but well worth it. We loved it so much we all went back at the end of the week. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting.

OK...I had to think hard about what to score this return but felt it deserved 5 out of 5 purely because the food and service was impeccable. We had lunch after an excursion and had great views of the harbour. We were sat within 15 minutes of arriving at a busy lunch period and the table was roomy and well presented.

We ate Prawns for a starter with Sour doh bread then both had Clam Chowder in a sour doh bread bowl with salad and a blue cheese wedge salad.

The cost seemed 'pricer' than expected but it is in the heart of Pier 39.

Would I visit again? Most likely yes
