1. The Cliff House: 1090 Point Lobos, San Francisco
The Cliff House is a classic SF restaurant and attraction. Parking may be tough, but worth it for the views and old school ambiance. There are a few options here, including Sutro’s, known for its fresh seafood and the more casual Bistro Restaurant, a favorite for breakfast or brunch.
2. The Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant: 1000 Great Highway, San Francisco, 94121
San Francisco’s only other beachside restaurant sits alongside Ocean Beach and offers awesome and memorable views of the Pacific Ocean. The food here is American-style, but we highly recommend going for the beer sampler and burgers.
3. Louis’: 902 Point Lobos Avenue, San Francisco, 94121
If you come here, you get a great view of the ruins of Sutro Bath and the ocean. This is a place that feels nostalgic for an older San Francisco, so expect comfort food. Come here for great burgers and breakfast/brunch food.
