The Brick Yard

The Brick Yard, located in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow district, is a local’s favorite, voted one of the best Sports Bars in the Bay Area. We have classic American fare, as well as healthy dining options in a relaxed atmosphere. We have Trivia on Tuesdays at 7:30pm, 1/2 off all bottles of wine on Wednesdays, and a brunch that is not to be missed!

"Had brunch at Brick Yard while visiting San Francisco. It was a great experience! Delicious brunch, fun cocktails, bottom-less mimosas, and great service! Met some cool people too."

"Took the family here for a quick bite before the fireworks....very limited menu, but everything we ordered was well made and nicely presented. Salads were fresh, pork sliders were tasty and burger was huge. Service was helpful and friendly.
Bar staff is excellent. Drinks were great!
Although they are technically a sports bar, the decor is more urban rustic than big screen tacky, which makes it a nice choice."

"What was once a sports bar has now really become a restaurant! A chef and sous chef combo have taken spins on some of my favorite dishes with the same flair you would expect in the city by the bay.
Try it!"

"More of a bar than a restaurant. We went on a Saturday night and it was pretty empty. Food was yummy. Nothing special, just standard bar food, but nonetheless good. Service was inattentive, but fine. If you're looking for a low key place to grab a drink, this place is fitting."

"if you want a sports bar and drink beer and have no conversation except for yelling at the screen then this place is for you, the sound was so deafening I could barely hold a conversation. The kitchen was closed so they used the next door? Only had a toaster oven? Waited over an hour for a veggie wrap and a salad?"
