Why locals recommend it
One step above a dive bar, but maybe just half a step. They have a lot of craft beers on tap. The place is nothing fancy, kind of a gritty, salty, local surfer vibe, with a lot of San Francisco State University students as well. It’s a fun mix. Wet Wednesdays, which is a charity thing for the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, is a big draw. They show surf videos, have a DJ, and great drink specials.

Casual, one block from the beach. Easygoing crowd and BINGO on Saturdays at 6.

Little honky-tonk bar by the beach with the look and feel of a small town lodge. Near White Cap cocktail bar. About a 20 min walk or a short Uber/Lyft ride.

A more divey option near us. Still very fun.
