Originally located in a less conspicuous spot across the street, this authentic seaman's pub now sits among the tourist mayhem of Pier 39's mall. Luckily, it has retained its character, not to mention its delicious, affordable seafood. Come in on a weekend night to sit amongst the sailors, fishermen, and dockworkers drinking and watching the fog roll in. Live folk music on weekend nights will add further salt to your pint.
I was SOOO discouraged by the food and service at the "new" Eagle Cafe. I'd been a loyal, happy customer since the early 70's, and wonder why the new owners couldn't leave well enough alone. The original Eagle had consistently good food and a lot of character. I always went away satisfied, knowing I'd be coming back again, soon(I actually drove from out of town to eat here). My breakfast yesterday consisted of corned beef which looked like a regurgitated piece of Spam(a small slice), one egg from an obviously anemic chicken, slices of untoasted toast, and rather acidic coffee. Oh yeah, they wouldn't allow me to substitute anything so I had to order a stack of pancakes although I only wanted one.
I came in for breakfast and loved the Crab Cakes Eggs Benny. Atmosphere was soothing and service was missing something.
The stupid waitress actually brought bill and tried to wrap up the food i was still eating!! When I mentioned later that this made me uncomfortable she explained that most clients are in a hurry and she wants to help them get going. Yeah! that service might work at a roadside "shovel and run" diner honey, but I paid 20$ for eggs and expect to sit and enjoy by meal. Very low rent!
