If this place was not one of the only places with outdoor seating over at the Embarcadero, there would be pretty much no reason to go here.
I'm pretty sure I could've swam to Alcatraz and back in the time it took to get our food, the attention of the waiter to get more food, and finally, the check. That's 3 trips to Alcatraz and back!
