My husband and I came here while in Port for a cruise we took this year. My husband grew up in NYC and loves a good pastrami sandwich on a hard roll. We asked several Locals as we were walking around where the best place to get that would be. We almost went somewhere else because Tommy's was a long walk from the pier, but after the third person told us if we didn't mind the walk this was the place to go. We went and it was fantastic. He had his pastrami, and I had a French dip on the most wonderful roll, lots of meat and delicious au jus, the roll was perfect, very good cole slaw. My husband's pastrami was piled high just the way he likes it, will go here whenever we are in San Francisco...

food was nothing to write home about. The server just slammed food into plates, no care at all. The only good thing were their french rolls. I don't know why this place is so popular, I won't go back for sure

When I was 5, way back in 1968, my dad took me here for the first time. And I've been coming back ever since. (Yes, that makes me 50 this year). Tommy Harris had a wonderful idea when he founded this place over 60 years ago. But I wonder if even he would have any idea of the popularity it would generate over the years. The food is absolutely fantastic. The Buffalo Stew is to die for. Brisket made daily is tender and wonderful. The Corn Beef is exceptional. Sourdough rolls for the sandwiches are always fresh. The beer selection is absolutely incredible, spanning the globe with many different types of suds. The prices are great and very reasonable. Service has always been good and it is a family owned and family run business. Centrally located in the heart of San Francisco, it is easy to get to. Parking may be tricky but it is well worth it. I will be back many times over the years. Even though I am in Jersey.

My husband and I thought Tommy's Joynt was fabulous. The brisket was the best we've ever had. Great value, great freshly prepared food! (were in S.F. celebrating 34 yr. anniv.) We're from Jupiter, Florida.

Just like the other person, my father brought me here in the 60's and I too have been coming back on a regular basis. It is a little harder now because I live in NJ but whenever I am in San Francisco which is about twice a year, I always come here. The sandwiches are fantastic. I love the roast beef and they dip the bread in the au jus first off. Also the buffalo stew is to frickin' die for. Even the buffalo stew sandwich is fantastic. Parking can be tricky but I can usually find a spot on Geary street up the hill. I will be coming back here many times in the future.

My dad first took me here in 1969 and I've been coming back ever since. I do not share the same opinion as the other reviewer; quite the opposite. Tommy's is a total San Francisco icon. Their Buffalo Stew is the bomb. Roast beef sandwiches are fresh-carved and fantasticx. The beer selection is enormous. The decor is old but so what, to me it only adds to the tradition. I will continue to return here everytime that I am in SF.
