Success! Thanks for posting your review of Fishermen's Grotto. You’ve done the world some good today.


My two kids and I ate here after long walk on Embarcadero and it was really great. Shrimp cocktail was delicious, oysters on half-she'll and clam chowder all really good. And so was the service!

I love the Fisherman's Grotto- I will tell you why!

I grew up in San Francisco and live on Telegraph Hill a few blocks away from #9. My feeling has always been the wharf is the wharf.... and most of the places at the wharf are about the same foodwise. Fisherman's Grotto and Scoma's have some of the same touristy issues that the entire wharf suffers- but these two are a cut way above. I have read all the reviews below and can only say I have never had an experience any... view more

A Special Evening

My girlfriend and I chose this place for our Valentines Day dinner. We had a 7:30pm reservation. When we arrived the place was packed. This is a huge restaurant and when we saw it packed we knew it must be good. We had to wait about 15 minutes while they prepared our table. Not a big deal. We sat upstairs in the Florentine Room which had a beautiful view of the harbor, bay and city Skyline. The GF and I shared the Mu... view more

Fantastic food, views and service!

I am a native San Franciscan and have a true appreciation for the rich history of the city. I grew up hearing about the Fishermen's Grotto, as it is one of the top attractions on the Wharf. I think I went as a kid but hadn't been in years. On Friday, I attended a holiday party at the Fishermen's Grotto and had the BEST time! We started in the bar area and had cocktails and crab cakes (delicious!) There was plenty of ... view more

Friendly, fun, charming, quality seafood.

Being a local, I've learned that the Wharf can be quite charming weekdays from October through May. I go to Fishermen's Grotto quite often each year during that time (Note** San Francisco Dungeness Crab season occurs during many of those months). The Grotto is my favorite restaurant on the Wharf, and yes, I've been to all the old joints. \r \r Their prices are the best in the area. The owners are the most down to ear... view more

Great family restaurant!

Amazing views, service and food!!! I never miss an opportunity to bring my out-of-town guests to this restaurant. The owner is always available and willing to chat. I love hearing about the history of this Italian family owned restaurant.

Avoid entirely

We wnt to the Fisherman's grotto on our 55th wedding anniversary. Though the food is good, the service is absolutely horrible. How they stay in business is truly a mystery. It must be from first time tourist customers. I'm sure noone comes back for a second try. We certainly would not return.
