I love spending the day on the Wharf. Cute shops, lots of food, fresh fish, and the people watching is spectacular! Make sure to wear your walking shoes. You can pick up all of your souvenirs here!

Classic landmark of San Francisco, Fisherman's Wharf offers bundles of seafood, seafood, and more seafood. If you are visiting, you must visit this landmark and experience the vendors hawking crab, clam chowder in a bowl, fried calamari, shrimp cocktails, oysters, etc. In addition to all the tourist shops, your an even see sea lions lounging at the docks! Come and have fun here!

Fisherman's is one of the most touristy places on earth.
I don't think you should leave SF without going there, but I also don't think you should waste your time there.
There is nothing really special about the shops on the square, neither about the restaurants. Just around the corner there are a couple of smelly sealions, nothing much about them either.
It's a good place to take pictures of Alcatraz, probably it's as close as you can get while still on mainland and then head off toward Ghirardelli Square.
I'm a foodie, so for me the best part were the crab booths. You can have crab right there on the sidewalk, or maybe a clam showder. Bouding, the famous and traditional sourdough bakery is also there, so make sure you grab your bread.
And Joe's Crab shack is a fun place to have crab sitting properly down, a typical tourist restaurant, with too-nice waitresses and waiters, little dances and huge drinks.

So much fun to walk around, day or night. Yes, it can get chilly but bundle up and take a stroll. Great people watching, street vendors, food, and nice views of the Bay Bridge.

While it is very touristy and crowded, there is so much to do and see here that it's worth at least a quick walk through.

Way too crowded, hard to park, but it's a place you need to see if you're coming to San Francisco for the first time. Yes, it's touristy. Yes, it's overpriced. BUT it's also extremely San Francisco, and a nice place to walk around (if you don't mind crowds).

Yeah, it's a must-see if it's your first time in San Francisco. But the crowds and chain restaurants always deter me from spending more time than I have to here. My advice is to see the sea lions, take a ferry ride, snap a few photos and then get the hell out. You'll avoid a mid-afternoon headache.

A tourist hell and prime location to be wiped off the map this beautiful city, it's a hokey nightmare of the worst kind, and fails at any kind of authenticity. Do not mistake this for the real San Francisco.
