As a group of 3 we ordered the sampler and were not disappointed by the quantity and quality of the platter which included brisket, ribs, sausage and chicken plus three different sauces on the side for dipping. We also tried the fried chicken sliders and were not disappointed. Reasonably priced too. More...

Excellent food when it comes to the meat, side dishes left me lacking a little as did the service. Location certainly smokes there meat onsite which is awesome. There is a full bar as you enter which has quite a few offerings. Restaurant layout is a bit unimpressive. More...

Was so happy to book this place for a work lunch to watch the Women’s World Cup. The food was fantastic, staff nice as can be. It’s a bit annoying to have to leave your seat to go order beer, we drank less bc of it so I’m sure they see an impact on sales with self-serve. The largest TV they have is a projector and it’s pretty crummy quality. All in all, the area lacks a good sports bar so with a few tweaks it could be great. More...

This place is amazing! The food is fast, fresh and consistent! There is an array of options from the menu so everyone can find something. The brisket, backyard salad, kale salad and dry fried chicken wings are a must. Gina is the best bartender EVER! She is fun, attentive and I enjoy the best conversations! LOVE,LOVE this place!!!!

Shared a Caesar salad, the smoked BBQ platter, chicken wings and a coleslaw. Everything was fantastic! My favorite was the ribs. Very tasty with a surprisingly sweetness to the rib. I could have eaten a whole plate of the ribs. The chicken, sausage and brisket were all delicious. Would have been super happy with a plate of any of those meats. selection is very good. Lots of options on tap. Service was great. Super nice people. Place was crowded because of the warrior game. But staff still was unbelievable. Definitely would come back again! More...

Good BBQ, beers, and cocktails! I recommend going on the earlier side to make sure they haven't sold out of any of the meats. They have a couple cocktails for more than one person: be careful, they're stronger than they look! More...

Very good bar with good food, service, and bourbon. I ordered the brisket sliders which were incredible. The beef was well flavored and melted in your mouth. Two sliders looked small to my eyes but filled me up as the amount of brisket was very generous-- and I'm a big guy. They table split brisket nachos, sweet potato fries, and a spam sushi. All were perfect. Great meal and we enjoyed well poured bourbon with our meals. One of my better dining experiences in San Fransisco. More...

I never leave reviews but I just had to with this place. I travelled from Toronto to SF for my birthday and somehow stumbled on Hardwood. Let me start with the drinks - great beers, lots of variety, and local options. The food was absolutely amazing. Someone told me not to get bbq in SF and they couldn’t have been more wrong. The brisket sliders are to die for and the dry rub wings are heavenly. But what made this place truly stand out is the staff. From the chefs to the bartenders to the servers - everyone is so incredibly kind and talented. My only complaint is that I can’t come by every week. This place has it all, amazing food, great beer, killer staff, and an unbeatable vibe. Can not recommend enough! More...

I believe this place got a makeover. It looks kinda same from inside but has a different menu for lunch and I think few new beers on tap. It is now a self serve place, you order your food at the bar and seat yourself. The food was good. Coleslaw was amazing. Curly fries were good too. Definitely check this place out. I am liking the changes so far. More...
