Lefty O'Doul's

Map & Directions 333 Geary
San Francisco, CA 94102
  • Takeout


SF Weekly's Description

Named for colorful San Francisco Seals baseball manager Francis "Lefty" O'Doul, this historical Union Square hofbrau and watering hole remains an unpretentious place to grab some hearty chow or guzzle some suds while catching a ballgame on TV. The authentic mid-century decor (heavy on nostalgic sports imagery) and counter-service food (heavy on salty meats) make O'Doul's a great spot for anyone who enjoys classic Americana and doesn't require fancy feasts or upscale new digs. In the evenings there's even a piano bar up front, in case you feel like indulging in some kitschy sing-alongs.

    Lefty O'Doul hit .349 in an 11-year Major League career. He's best remembered for playing for & later managing the Seals. One of the Seals he managed was Joe DiMaggio He opened this restaurant in 1958

    One of the last bars in America where a preponderance of patrons end the night asleep either on the bar or on the floor. And everybody's OK with that.

    If Elton John's evil brother is playing the piano, don't bother sitting down :-/

    Lefty O'Doul's is named after Francis "Lefty" O'Doul, a San Francisco legend. As a New York Giant, he had the highest batting average of any National League outfielder in the 20th century!

    Dear Westin guests: Avoid this place like the Black Death. The horrible food is only matched by horrible service. #Fail
