Pier 23

Live Music in The Marina, Fisherman’s Wharf & the Piers

It resembles a surf shack, but this old waterfront restaurant regularly features R&B, reggae, Latin bands, mellow rock and the occasional jazz pianist – and most shows are free. Wander out to the bayside patio to soak in the views. The dinner menu features pier-worthy options like batter-fried oysters and whole roasted crab.
