My Groupon had expired, but the value ($43) was available. First they made us order from the dinner menu, then they charged us for every item seperatly, even the soup which was included in the entree selection. Could not make the waiter understand this. I certainly paid $9 too much, but the whole experience left a bad taste. I think i should have been able to order anything I wanted from the menu, then credit the Groupon value of $43.

Validated parking is available a blocks away which is a plus considering street parking is slim to none around there.

Thank you Groupon for exposing me to this wonderful restaurant. The food was soooo good and the service was efficient and personable and prices, particularly considering the Wharf area, were very reasonable. I will go back to enjoy this family-owned gem. I liked the ambience as well.

My coupon had expired the day before we went to the resturant so we only expected them to give us the face value however they honored the coupon, the waitstaff was excellent, they came by several times to ensure we enjoyed our meal. The food was fresh and delicious.

From Our Editors

With just one counter, six stools, five tables, and a performing crab, Frank and Marian Pompei opened Pompei's Grotto on Fisherman's Wharf in the winter of 1946. Natives of the seaport community of San Benedetto d'Ancona, in Italy, the Pompei's served a modest menu of sandwiches, spaghetti, cracked crab, and seafood cocktails. Similar items are still served today, but under Frank's daughter, Nancy, the menu has expanded to include even more seafood and Italian favorites.

Fried shrimp, scallops, and white cod comprise the Captain's Platter, and from-scratch meat sauce made with local ingredients flavors the lasagna's layers of pasta and cheese. A popular pairing at Pompei's, seafood and Italian flavors join forces in dishes such as linguini and whole clams in a garlic, butter, and white wine sauce, as well as shrimp scampi made with jumbo shrimp sauteed in white wine, butter, mushrooms, and scallions, with linguini and fresh vegetables. And like the evolving menu, Pompei's storefront has also grown since 1946, and now includes an outdoor patio where Fisherman's Wharf's salty air mingles with the aroma of the kitchen's cooked catches.
