Should you be in the mood for hearty, meaty German food in substantial portions, stop by Suppenküche. This trendy, casual restaurant serves brunch and dinner. Reservations can be made for parties of six or more. Big, wooden beer hall-style tables and traditional, seasonal decorations will have you thinking you've been transported to a family-run inn somewhere in the Bavarian countryside. Grab a stein of lager (or maybe even a boot!), pull up a chair and revel in the vibe. Dozens of German and Belgian beers are available on draft and in the bottle. The kitchen serves up old favorites like Kartoffelsuppe and Wiener Schnitzel. The wait staff is quick and friendly. See the website for the menu, beer list and complete glossary of beer terminology.

525 Laguna Street, (at Hayes), San Francisco, CA, United States, 94102

This is the most unassuming of the Lower Haight dives, with lightning-fast bartenders and more microbrews than are usual at at bar. In fact, Toronado has over 50 beers on tap from such reputable breweries as Russian River and Anchor. The vibe is always good, the graffiti on the bathroom walls is legendary, and the company could not be better. When hunger strikes, you're free to bring in a sausage or three from Rosamunde right next door.

Monk's Kettle

This small gastro-pub offers upscale pub fare along with an excellent wine list, and as for beer, there's something for everyone: 29 drafts and about 150 bottles, plus ciders and even gluten-free beer. If you're not sure about what to order, the menu offers helpful beer pairing suggestions with each food item. To start, try the oyster fritters or the Monk’s Poutine with fries, seasoned ricotta, whey braised pork shoulder, gravy and scallions. There's a good selection of sandwiches and burgers, plus entrees like the pan seared whole Rainbow Trout. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available. If you are wondering about where to spend the evening, head to Monk's Kettle for a great time.

3141 16th Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94103
Bar Crudo

So your loved one is always complaining that you never go to fancy places anymore? Cruise over to this plush restaurant and bar for scrumptious food, great ambiance and fine wine. The soft hues, marine-themed artwork and aromatic candles at Bar Crudo will help rekindle your love life! Fresh seafood delights await your palate; try the seafood chowder, the chilled oysters, or the little neck clams. Pick your poison from the colossal drinks menu as you enjoy the soothing indie music. And if the bar setting is too chirpy to handle, just head to the dining room upstairs, which has a far more intimate atmosphere with just ten tables.

655 Divisadero Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94117
Magnolia Brewing

It's Haight-Ashbury, so what better music to be wafting in the air as you sip the house-made brews than the Grateful Dead? Remodeling has made the setting less psychedelic, and though there is an ebullient mural on the wall, the sound system will always take you back to the Summer of Love. That sets a mellow mood for the huge sandwiches, plates of sausages, bowls of hearty soup, and tempting finger foods such as french fries and onion rings. The service from the wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is always 1967.

1398 Haight Street, At Masonic Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94117
