Nuff said about this place. It is the BEST beer pub in the USA. David is very mindful of bringing in all the best Belgian beers he can. Itís not a upscale beer bar like you would find in Seattle, Manhattan, etc. however all walks of life can enjoy a pint here. Sometimes itís not the fanciness of the tables, but the beauty and wonderfullness of the beers served. If you dont mind a bit of noise, then come on in and sit a spell!

Great place decorated with funky tap handles all over the wall. A must visit if youre in San Fran. The beer selection on draft is one of the best ive seen in a while, although it does take a while to get a beer itís worth the wait. served in proper glassware and to the right temp.

Dark, loud, and a bit surly - definitely my kind of place depending on how loud the loud actually gets. Great selection of taps and bottles, though I think I named about four different beers over the course of the night that they were out of. Service was pretty gruff but helpful - theyíre there to get the beer out, not make friends. I got a great sandwich from Love & Haight, the place next door. Thankfully, I didnít have to use the bathroom, which looked kinda frightening from the outside.

Dark dingy neighborhood bar look, kinda turned me at first then it grws on ya. The service was good but the bartender is a little surly [ in a good way]. The beer selection is excellent. If you are anywhere near San Fran donít miss the Tornado!!!

Definitely an experience. Many N. Cali beers on draft that just donít exist on the east coast. Draft prices were on target, most around $4. A few Belgians on tap as well, winter offerings from DuPont and Delirium, as well as Lindemanns. Bottle selection was decent, loaded with Belgians. Bottle prices were a bit high, towards $20+ for many Belgian 750ís. Not quite the rare selection of a Monks Cafe, but the service at the Toronado was light years better than Monks. The two bartenders were fast and helpful. Atmosphere lived up to its billing, loud metal music, mostly younger locals, mixed with a biker crowd. Worth the trip if youíre in town.

Great tap selection. Cash only. Good tap prices, for sure. In fact, one of the best tap selections that Iíve ever seen. That being said, I could go without having to look at this place. Itís pretty much a shit pit and a dirty bar, with its only salvation being that thereís no smoking (but they donít get credit for that one because everyone else must do that too.) The dreadlocked woman working the bar was slow and jaded. The atmosphere was packed with trendy kids serving as collegiate expatriates. If you can put your blinders on to everything but the beer then yes, this place rocks. But aside from the beer, this place is a tragedy.

Good selection of barleywines (even though it was not the barleywine fest) and some NoCal locals I wanted to try. Problem is parking, there is none. You really must take the public transportaion to this place.

This is a great place. When I walked in, loud death metal was playing, it was packed with a bunch of freaks, and the beer was pouring like mad. All I could think was "this is my kind of place".
They have wonderful craft beers on tap, yet the place is very much what you would expect, or want on the Haight.

this is it. a must when in the bay area. sometimes i feel the tap list isnt that unusual, depends when you hit it. typical of the haight area. tatts and piercing in a not so upscale establishment, but a great beer selection. you gotta go, everybody is talkkn about it.

A definate stop when in the area. 4 hand pumps, a good amount of taps with harder to find stuff, good stuff on their bottle list also.
