Restaurant Details

Its location on the Embarcadero - smack dab in the midpoint between the Ferry Building to Fisherman's Wharf - makes Pier 23 a draw for tourists seeking refreshment as well as locals who want to catch live music by the bay. Fried oysters, peel-and-eat prawns, cracked crab, and an excellent hamburger are the menu's mainstays, and daily specials might include cioppino, roast pork carnitas, a blackened snapper po' boy, or grilled swordfish with capers. Most evenings and weekends see reggae, funk, jazz, blues, and rock bands set up in the back of the bar for mellow jams and danceable party tunes, while sunny afternoons make the bayside seating seem like a dream.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
