Lots of Oregon Ducks and of course Beeraphanelia all over the place, chalkboard over the bar tells you whatís on from Rogue (lots of them) and the guest taps. Thereís another section on the side that seems to be more of a bottle shop. The place was pretty deserted on a Monday evening, so a waiter who seemed to know his products well came right over and was helpful. I went for the No-Fault line ale, one Iíve never even heard of before. My partyís Beers seemed up to form and tasted pretty clean. It sort of went downhill for me when my food arrived. Worst ribs ever. They tasted like they were microwaved, sauce on the side so they were dry as hell and the portion was pretty meager for the price tag of about 15 bucks. The coleslaw and beans that went with it were palatable, but I would have liked a little more of those, too. Sauce was the only real saving grace, but then again, Iíve had better. For a tied house, pints were a bit on the steep side, but I guess thatís a Frisco thing. I liked the place overall, but next time I wont resist the temptation to eat elsewhere.

Popped in when we stumbled upon it as we meandered throught town. Lots of Rogue and visitor brews on tap. Service was good, but the place was pretty much empty (we were there on a Wednesday afternoon). Didnít eat anything.

I wish that the server had known more about Rogue beers than I do. I had studied up and was rather excited to be there. My bar tender was a bit more tired than I was. Beer was outstanding. Food was solid for a pub. Iíll be back despite the service, though perhaps not quite as often.

Enjoyable place, with friendly service, if a bit uninformed, and as noted below, an outdated chalkboard (25% innacurate), but with the bonus of having the XS line (Stout and I2PA). Good bottle selection for take out, but overpriced, compared to bottle shops.

Well, if your in the neighborhood and want to try some harder to find Rogue beers I reccomend this place. However, there are much better watering holes in San Francisco than this. Serivce was friendly, though slow and clueless about beer and the beer menu was littered with mistakes. If your time in San Francisco is limited I would reccomend skipping over this one.

Stopped in on our walk back from visiting Alcatraz. My first "Tied House" sort of thing on this side of the Atlantic. Great selection, even if many chalkboard taps were out (it is hard for me to ocmplain though when we were having Crusty and Chocolate on tap, two rare treats in these parts). Service was friendly, but severely overworked (1 person handling bar, tables, and retail), so it was slow. But the fact that a couple expensive beers were left off the tab made up for it. Took home a bunch of bottles from their "garage sale", rare ones for me anyway. I enjoyed the dacor and atmosphere on a Friday afternoon. Food was standard pub grub. I would go again, it is just a shame they donít staff the place properly.

the service sucks at this place. well atleast did for me, mixed up beers, and just was more concerned about the game on TV. I will still stop by because of beers you can only get there, but you get the point.

You know service can count for a lot in a place like this. Iím from out of town, Iím jacked up to be in the pub because Iím a big fan of Rogue, and the bartender was atrocious. First of all, the chalkboard with whatís on tap was outdated (about 50% accuracy). And when I asked the bartender what some of the taps where, I got either an attitude or a wrong answer ("Whatís the Rogue Skull Splitter?", "Itís kinda like a dark ale"; itís a Schwarzbier (a lager, not the Scotch Ale), people). I didnít fly across the country to get a vague answer, bro. Honestly, my rating is biased by this one crappy, probably overworked, probably buzzed bartender at the tail end of a Friday night. I had some fantastic beers there (an Imperial Pilsner and a Chocolate Ale, dark chocolate in a glass) and Iím sure there were more on tap (there were quite a few guest taps), if only the bartender was willing and able to help a curious beer enthusiast like myself. Overall, go there, the great beer trumps the possibly butt service.

About like any other Rogue. Nothing to really set this one apart. Must have had almost 40 taps with lots of guests. Good service.

Plopped ourselves out at one of the sidewalk tables here and enjoyed a fresh old Crustacean while taking in the goings on in Washington park. A really well-situated bar, beer is taken care of, only complaint would be that they should train the staff better wrt what theyíre serving. Plenty of Rogue beer available for take home, as well as lots of hippie-oriented swag.
