"Great atmosphere, service and drinks. Locals and travelers enjoy together."
Located along the Embarcadero, FOG CITY is a beautiful and historic destination for modern, eclectic San Franciscan cuisine and cocktails.
The original Fog City Diner, which opened in 1985, has been completely re-imagined by its founders, Bill Higgins, and Bill Upson. Maintaining the energy and approachable spirit of the beloved original, FOG CITY offers innovative menus in a sophisticated, warm and open space created by Bay Area architect Michael Guthrie.
The location of our FOG CITY restaurant is steeped in history — one that goes back way beyond the 1985 opening of the original Fog City Diner. From feeding hungry sailors before they shipped out to serve in WWII to housing a railroad building servicing trains in San Francisco’s first railways, and acting as a docking point for ships during the Gold Rush, this site has always been an integral part of the rich tapestry of San Francisco history.
With its recently renovated space, the latest incarnation of FOG CITY is another exciting chapter in the history of 1300 Battery Street.
Fog City bar crafts classic and signature cocktails made with custom ice and the finest American-made spirits, featuring local distilleries.
Beer on Tap
The beer program at FOG CITY boasts a large artisanal beer selection, including seven beers on tap, some of which will be brewed exclusively for the restaurant.
There are 16 wines on tap, which change regularly and feature small production, local wineries as well as an extensive list of wines by the bottle.
