Hard Water

Hard Water is a whiskey bar with the largest selection of craft and highly allocated whiskey on the west coast. We serve delicious small plates and fried chicken in a convivial and lively bar setting. We have two tables for large parties and communal counter seating for snacks and cocktails. Join us for lunch on our sunny patio that fronts the Embarcadero.
We are located at Pier 3, The Embarcadero, San Francisco.

"Made a reservation at Hard Water when I heard Alicia Keys was performing at Super Bowl City. Vibe is relaxed, casual & scenic with views of the Embarcadero and the Bay. Great reception at the door & from the bartender who offered nice drink options for two Whiskey novices. Enjoyed tasty bites of chicken/biscuits (Hard Water style) and well-crafted drinks at the bar - both served up quickly though the room was at capacity. Worth another round & will return for pre-game libations."

"We were a group of 4 which was awkward because the seating is just counter space and the noise level was so high, it was difficult to talk to the whole group. Food was very heavy but mostly quite good. Its like heavy bar snacks. Fried everything . Despite this, I think everyone had a reasonably good experience. The waiter made a mistake on the bill to our benefit and when it was discovered, they were gracious enough not to re-do it and increase it. That said, the hostess was a bit rude because we were a few minutes late due to super bowl traffic but we got seated. The whiskey list is amazing if not quite pricey. I'd recommend it for a drink on a night when a few snacks felt right and not a whole meal."

"Great food and drinks. However do not go in search of a healthy light meal. This food is spicy, heavy and greasy in the most amazing way. It is definitely worth forgetting your diet and healthy lifestyle for this places fried chicken!"

"We went for my birthday and because it was conveniently located by Super Bowl City where we were attending the Matt Nathanson concert. The food was yummy, the bar is fun, the whiskey was good! The only disappointment i had was that even though my husband told our waiters that it was my birthday, I didn't even get a "happy birthday" from anyone. It seemed odd, but maybe that's how restaurants are in SF."

"Excellent bar. Top of the line ingredients. Efficient knowledgable bartenders. Interesting decor. Have a flight of whiskey, have a drink or two. I don't recommend the food. Over cooked chicken, so-so Mac and cheese. Still worth a visit for the bar alone."

"Gosh, I heard such good things about the chicken. And the chicken was pretty yummy but $92 for a glass of wine, a mint julep and two fried chicken dinners (well actually just two pieces and a roll) seemed a bit expensive. And I am quite accustomed to SF restaurant pricing.
But what made it really off putting was when the host sternly asked me if I had a res (which I had) and then tucked me in a corner when there was more pleasant seating available. I guess I wasn't cool or hip or young enough. To be fair, I didn't ask to be seated elsewhere but I was kind of scared of her."

"Enjoyed walking along the water front and visiting the Ferry Building market before eating at Hard Water. It is a small bar (no real tables -- but counter/stool seating) with striking decor and hundreds of different whiskeys to try. I really enjoyed the Derby Cocktail Tropical, and there are also wine and beers to try. The pimento cheese spread with buttermilk crackers was so great I'll go back just for that. Also loved the chili-lime cucumbers and the house fried chicken with biscuits and pepper jelly. Nice staff and speedy service. Glad this is near my office because I'll be going back soon."

"If you are looking for $20+ per oz hard to find bournons, you are looking at the right place. Anything less than that, you should go to some other regular places."

"Hard Water is a Bar, in a great location with a great Whiskey list who happens to serve good food. Fried Chicken Sandwich, outstanding. Bartender Outstanding. Pork Belly outstanding. Little smokeys, wanted more. Biscuits with honey Outstanding. Great place for a drink before a SF Giants game. Can't wait to return."
