It may be difficult to get service here as this is most likely the busiest Boudin in the world, but it's still worth the effort for the sheer fun of it. The menu is large and the place is grand. You'll get the opportunity to see some bakers in action.
If you just want to try the food, check out the other Boudins downtown. The cuisine is good, but a tad overpriced. What makes this main location magical is the hustle and bustle.

Fisherman's Wharf is touristy, no doubt about it. And so is this restaurant. But don't let that stop you from trying it. I lived for a long time in SF, and this cozy bistro is where I've always brought out-of-town guests who insist on going to Fisherman's Wharf, usually before or after catching the boat tour over to Alcatraz. Of course, the classic sourdough soup bowl is on the menu, but you've got a lot more choices, too. Make reservations, even for lunch, because it can get really busy here.

Classic bakery in Fisherman's Wharf where the sourdough reigns supreme in many shapes and forms, including alligators, turtles, Bears, and crabs. Delicious also! Freshly baked!

Love to just walk and take the tour of the bread making process. I love the smell of this place. I am a huge fan of bread and could live here all day if it wouldn't kill me afterwards.

When I first moved to San Francisco, I took the Muni down to the Ferry Building and walked along the water until I reached Fisherman's Wharf. I was starving and cold and feeling like a little orphan child until I pushed my way into Boudin (the largest one in SF) and ordered a clam chowder in a sourdough bowl. I ate this many times in my three years living in San Fran, but this first trip was the only time I was ever able to eat the entire thing (yes, the bowl too). It is so perfect on a frigid afternoon. Later I found out that their tomato soup is wicked good as well, as are their chicken salad sandwiches, but if it's your first time - try the classic, clam chowder bread bowl.

Yum sf has some of the best clam chowder in the US. If you visit SF, you must make a stop at Boudin for their homemade clam chowder in sourdough bread bowl. Super yummy and perfect for the weather up here!

I love coming here for their clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. It is delicious on a chilly SF night. Haven't tried anything else but it looks good. I like picking up the Volcano Bread for the fam bam since they love it== garlic, cheese and sourdough perfect combination of flavors!
