Many of the Fisherman's Wharf restaurants are named after the family that has operated the establishment for generations. It is part of the charm of the Wharf, where the heritage of the Italian fishermen continues to this day. Cioppino's continues that tradition. Almost. We are third generation native San Franciscans who take great pride in both our city and our restaurant. The only difference between us and many of the other family-run restaurants at Fisherman's Wharf is that our family name is not Cioppino. We would have used our family name, but we were forced to admit it simply does not look good in lights. So we settled on Cioppino's, which is what we do best. Cioppino is a lusty and flavorful seafood soup which is uniquely San Franciscan. The origin of both the dish and the name came from the Italian fishermen in the early 1900's, when Fisherman's Wharf was still called Meigg's Wharf. Someone would make the rounds of the moored fishing boats, calling out for for contributions to a common, festive stew. One fisherman would toss a nice, fat fish into the bucket, another would drop in a succulent Dungeness crab, another some herbs and vegetables. Hours of Operation: 365 Days a Year Lunch & Dinner 11:00am - 10:30pm Happy Hour Monday to Friday 3:00pm - 6:00pm

The Gold Dust Lounge is located opposite the Fisherman's Wharf Sign between Ripley's Believe It or Not and Madame Tussaud's in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf. The venerable old Gold Dust Lounge was reborn on February 1st, 2013 with great pomp and circumstance, in a new location at 165 Jefferson Street in Fisherman's Wharf. Today we bring you a look inside the relocated simulacrum of the old Union Square bar, which retains much of the look and feel of the nearly 100-year-old original, including its iconic marquis over the entrance. Also, chandeliers and mirrors were brought over from the old space, and the space has a similar pressed tin ceiling. The bar's band, Johnny and the Camaros, is on hand playing at the back of the bar every night starting at 8:30pm. Keep us in mind for all your post-Ripley's-Believe-It-Or-Not-museum-going drinking needs. Cross Streets: Taylor and Mason Street.
