Johnny Foley's Irish House (San Francisco)

Document Actions
A pub to remember in San Francisco.

Just before the start of the RSA Conference 2008 in San Francisco, I walked over to 243 O'Farrell Street to visit Johnny Foley's Irish House. I had been there before and had no interest in missing an opportunity to catch a pint there while in town.

The dÈcor is just as would be expected of any proper Irish pub: plenty of dark wood with the generous space being allocated in a large number of snugs, suitable for maintaining an intimate conversation. At just before seven on a Monday evening, the place was full. After a bit of looking I managed to find an empty seat at the bar. I ordered a pint of Guinness and noticed the sign by the phone behind the bar, reproduced nearby.

I found that my pint of Guinness was poured just about perfectly and began to settle in. Through the noise of the crowd I heard the familiar voice of Dolores O'Riordan. I love the Cranberries, even if I am listening to a recording. My six-ounce petite filet with fries arrived in relatively short order.

Dinner was excellent.
