An Afternoon Outdoor Beer & Apps Spot: The Ramp, SF

The Ramp Restaurant was a typical Sunday family occasion for friends of ours who lived for many years in Portrero Hill in SF. So one weekend they took us to the Ramp to reminisce for an afternoon brunch.

The Ramp’s location makes it a great casual spot with a smaller number of tables inside but many tables outside right on the waterfront. It was overcast the day we dined at the Ramp but I can see how a sunny afternoon could offer up a perfect excuse to have beers and apps with friends. Inside there was a table of older guys playing cards or some kind of game in the corner and a handful of folks having a beer at the bar. Overall it had a nice neighborhood feeling but I can see how nice days would fill up the waterfront.

The food servings were large and fresh with SF prices to match. The best food was the fish and calamari fritto with chips because of the delicious dill dipping tartar-like sauce. The prices ranged from $12 for a cheeseburger and fries to $13 for fish and chips. A friend had the Taco Salad and it was huge and looked very good. I had the omelet but wished I had gone for the fish and chips.  It’s not bad, check it out if you are in the area!

    OK, so this is easily one of my fav hidden happy hour spots. Absolutely awesome on a nice day (service can be kinda slow, but its hard to beat the awesomeness).

  • That is great to hear Sean. That is awesome to know because you are def. the local SF in-the-know food guru in our minds! What do you think of the Monk’s Kettle in the Mission?

    Totally the best happy hour in the city. The long island ice-teas are the best (and totally dangerous)

  • Stephen, When are we going to meet up there? Hurry up and get here!
