The 10 Best Places To Eat After A Giants Game

Sure, there are some quality places to eat at AT&T Park...but after you've gone to a few games, you've seen pretty much all there is to see. With so many awesome places to chow down in SoMa, we picked out our favorites to help you diversify your postgame options.


21st Amendment

Address: 563 2nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 369-0900


If you walk to the ballpark, you've probably passed 21st, and if you've gone out in the city enough, you've probably tried one of their beers.

Yeah, it gets crowded, but it's crowded for a reason - the food and the beer selection are top-notch. The IPAs are all on point, and if fruit-flavored beers are something you're down with, the Hell or High Watermelon is top-notch.

Farmerbrown's Little Skillet

Address: Cento, 360 Ritch St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 777-2777


Don't be scared off by the setting (a window in a glorified alleyway)...this is easily one of the best soul food spots in the city.

Each order of chicken & waffles is a borderline miracle, but you can't go wrong with anything on this menu. If you're lucky enough to stop by after a sunny day game, take your food & your sweet tea into South Park and grab a bench - heaven.

G-Food Lounge

Address: 431 2nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 854-1425


This place just opened up recently, and despite our initial misgivings about putting food trucks underneath a freeway overpass, it freakin' rocks.

The location is perfect (just blocks from the park on 2nd street), and the rotating trucks that come through range from 'really good' to 'I would commit capital crimes for this sandwich'. There's also an ever-present vendor in the back selling beer and sushi...just in case you needed another reason to check G-Food out.


Address: 701 2nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 537-9020


Classier than a bar, but relaxed enough that you can show up in your Giants gear, Paragon is an incredibly underrated spot no matter what you have in mind.

With a diverse menu and a deceptively deep selection of beer, wine and cocktails, Paragon is where you should go if your group is being indecisive (the fact that it's just a block away from AT&T doesn't hurt, either). No matter what your group is in the mood for, you'll find something here that'll keep 'em happy.

Nova Bar & Restaurant

Address: 555 2nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 543-2282


Nova is just a few doors down from 21st Amendment, which means it gets passed over often by the game-day crowd.

That's their loss, though - Nova has a terrific upscale American menu (their fries are absolutely world-class), and the staff deserve a mention for being as friendly and accommodating as you'll find in the city. At lunch, try the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich, and any other time of day, go wild on the bar snacks or the share plates.


Address: 500 Brannan St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 543-2222


If you want to class it up after the game, this is where you want to go. Coco500 might be a top ten restaurant in the entire city, let alone in SoMa, but it isn't obscenely expensive or miserably pretentious.

With a light, Italian-influenced menu, you can go big on dinner here without going overboard. There's only one fried item on the menu - the fried green beans - but they might be the best appetizer here. The halibut and the pork shoulder are also highly recommended.

Hennessy's Wine & Spirits

Address: 545 2nd St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 348-1432


Another hidden gem, Hennessy's is on the same block as 21st Amendment and Nova, but it's even easier to miss.

Order a sandwich on home-baked baguette, ask the owner (a serious Giants fan, as if you needed more reasons to check this place out) to help pick out the right wine, and take your meal out on the back patio. Save room for a cookie, though - they're baked in-house and the size of a frisbee.

Mehfil Indian Cuisine

Address: 28 2nd Street, San Francisco, CA 94105

Phone: (415) 896-9000


The good news: since you're already wearing orange, the tikka masala stains won't even show up! The bad news: the food coma doesn't come optional.

If you're in the mood for good, reasonably-priced Indian food and don't mind taking a two-hour nap afterwards, Mehfil is your spot. Just a few blocks up 2nd from the park, Mehfil is the best of the half-dozen Indian restaurants in the neighborhood.

Town Hall

Address: 342 Howard St, San Francisco, CA 94105

Phone: (415) 908-3900


Inventive, atmospheric and surprising, this New Orleans-inspired restaurant is one of the best sit-down options in the neighborhood.

Come prepared - this is a classier joint than most of the restaurants on this list - but if you're in the mood, you won't do much better for yourself. Try the fried okra to start, but order whichever entree feels right - you can't go wrong with any of 'em.

Escape From New York Pizza

Address: 715 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94107

Phone: (415) 896-0700


Tired of upscale restaurants? Want a good old slice of pizza instead of a kale salad? Head for Escape From New York.

The ingredients are fresh, the pizza is awesome, and you won't have to worry about dollars or dress codes. On 3rd between Bryant and Harrison, Escape From New York is just a few blocks up from the ballpark - next time you're fiending for something cheesy after the game, don't forget about it.
