World-Class Food and World Champion Baseball: Best Restaurants near AT&T Park

We know there's nothing quite as American as baseball and apple pie, but what if you want more than just dessert before or after a game? Although the garlic fries at San Francisco's beautiful AT&T Park, home of the city's beloved Giants, are legendary, there are many restaurants around the ballpark that are worth checking out.

If you're running late to the game but don't want to skimp on quality, pop into HRD Coffee Shop or The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen for a sandwich to go. If you have time for a sit-down meal that's  bit more fancy (and pricey), check out Marlowe's or Bar Crudo's. And if you want to rub elbows with a place packed with Giants fans, Original Joe's is a good bet.

If you're eating before the game, leave some time to get to your seat, especially if you're visiting AT&T Park for a Giants game. 

If you're eating after the game, hop on the MUNI line, which stops right outside the stadium. Not only will the MUNI line take you to several of the restaurants below, you can also take it further downtown to for more dining possibilities.
