Pier Market Seafood Restaurant on Pier 39 in San Francisco has redesigned it’s menu while continuing to showcase all sustainable seafood offerings aligned with the Monterey Bay Aquarium's "Seafood Watch" program. Signature offerings on the current Pier Market menu include garlic roasted local Dungeness crab, mesquite grilled salmon sandwich served on housemade bannock bread, Anchor Steam beer battered Fish N Chips, housemade Dungeness Crab Cakes, and a wide variety of fresh sustainable seafood hand-cut daily and mesquite grilled, and clam chowder made from scratch daily.
We enjoyed a great dinner, receiving great service with bay sunset views, starting out with a nice glass of Avalon Cabernet Napa Valley wine, followed by appetizers, entrees and desserts. If you have out-of-town-guests who have never been to San Francisco before and are new to San Francisco foods such as mussels etc, the servers explain the foods and their recommendations as they are used to working with out of town tourists. Note the pumpkin bread pudding is seasonal so stop by to try it now. See what we ordered below and the pictures! Enjoy!
. Steamed Clams steamed in garlic butter and white wine
. New England Clam chowder bowl
. Cioppino - A classic San Francisco dish. A tomato based seafood stew with fresh fish, mussels, clams, shrimp and crab. I decided not to have the pasta but the Cioppino does normally come served over pasta.
