Things to do in Fisherman's Wharf: restaurants, Pier 45 & other attractions

You can not miss with the seafood found at this part of the wharf. Alioto’s, Guardino’s and Scoma’s are all quintessential San Francisco.

At the very end of Taylor St., on Pier 45 is Musée Mécanique, a true SF landmark! There you will find antique coin operated arcade games, musical instruments, and dioramas stretching back from circa 1900 to today. There’s also a 1904 Franklin steam powered motorcycle on display! This is an interactive museum of 20th-century penny arcade games and artifacts. With over 300 mechanical machines, it is one of the world’s largest privately owned collections.
