Good Food

The food is good for it's price, even though the service is slow. One has to be patient, but when the food comes, it is worth it's price.

Dirty place, rude staff

Gross dishes, overpriced beer that tasted like the lines were dirty. If you love hanging out at the mall then go for it, otherwise go anywhere else or buy a sixer and stay home.

Slow Service

This is not the place to go if you are pressed for time. The service is slow, both in the restaurant and at the bar. The food takes a long time to get to you, but make sure you check the temperature, because my food has always been served cold.

Very poor service. Food usuall...

Very poor service. Food usually isn't served hot and often times doesn't seem fresh. I've had to send items back to the cook a few times.

Great atmosphere

I loved the food. My boyfriend and I shared the breaded fried artichoke hearts appetizer which was fantastic, I almost ordered another one. The burger was really good and juicy. The atmosphere was awesome and the service was friendly enough, but it was fairly busy. It took a while before our server cmae to us, but the host came over and got our order started for her so we didn't wait long. There were a lot of people just having drinks and they got kinda loud so it made conversation a little hard, but I was busy eating anyway. I would go again.

Average Food, Poor Service

The Holding Company serves over-priced bar food and the service is poor. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Great food, drinks, and for larger parties too

This place is a great place to take a group of friends to enjoy some nice drinks (especially there most tasty martinis), tasty food, and lots of space for your party as well (especially towards the evening hours).

A long-time establishment

This place has been around for quite some time, but it's been a long time since my last visit. It was quite crowded for a Friday lunch. I went for the fish & chips special - it was good but I've had better. I heard the person at the next table telling the waiter that the fries were soggy, which were my same thoughts. My friend chose the special crab caesar and she was able to get a half order which was plenty; she liked it especially because the crab was fresh. Service was good.

Fun for trivia

They have great trivia here. It's fun to hit The Holding Company in the Embarcadero 2 after work for some hot trivia and cold beer. The Holding Company is San Francisco's version of CHEERS!
