Since 1977, The San Francisco Rose's neon flower has cut a bright profile in the dark night, serving as a beacon that attracts diners in search of laid-back pub grub and a place to watch big games or belt out weekend karaoke. Each day, the kitchen churns out burgers slathered in barbecue sauce and cheesy pizzas, complemented by shareable starters such as nachos and cheese fries or baskets of wings doused in one of five sauces. 30 flat-screen TVs stream HD broadcasts of NBA, MLB, NFL, and NCAA contests for viewing while at the bar, on the pet-friendly outdoor patio, or from across the street with binoculars. In addition to reasonably sized screens, the restaurant also fills its Thorn Room’s 10-foot screen with larger-than-life flickers emanating from an HD projector.
Modeled on England's famed watering holes, Baker St. Pub & Grill greets visitors with a softly lit atmosphere, age-darkened wood, and ceilings adorned with anglophilic knickknacks.

Guests can pair their brew with something from the pub menu, featuring Welsh rarebit sandwiches, bangers and mash, and shepherd's pie. Fish and chips come in classic form, or potato crusted. Those looking to sink their teeth into homegrown specialties can order a juicy sirloin burger or spicy chicken wings.
