Located in an elegantly reimagined Army barracks, Presidio Social Club sets itself apart with its retro vibes and attentive service. Diners indulge in favorites like Deviled Eggs, roast chicken, and Wagyu Steak Tartare in the convivial dining room or on the newly expanded patio, filled with heat lamps and surrounded by olive trees.

With quick access to the miles of San Francisco trails in the Presidio, the weekend brunch and Happy Hour offerings are great bookends to your park adventures.

Historic Touches

Built in 1903 as a barracks, the simple, open structure was rethought for modern times, while integrating elements from the past. For example, the restaurant’s long bar features reclaimed medicine cabinets from Letterman General Hospital, which was located across the street.
