SF Weekly's Description
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.
Tips from foursquare
Live music, cold Coronas & fresh seafood. When the sun is shining, good moods are abundant & tables are hard to come by but standing amidst the sea of fellow bar-goers is just as fun. - Jill
A local hangout with a great view of the bay! As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.
It's a nice a pier.
