Where Are the Best Islais Creek Restaurants?

The Islais Creek neighborhood, named for the nearby creek and close to the City College of San Francisco, is small. This once-bustling business area was an industrial hub during the gold rush until the 1906 earthquake shook up the area and filled the creek with a significant amount of rubble. Since then the creek has been reduced in size although still cared for by community organizations to preserve the wildlife that is still prevalent. Tourists who visit the area can kayak down the creek and catch some phenomenal views of San Francisco as well as some intimate, close-up views of various wildlife. The Islais Creek neighborhood is not far away from great dining. Here are a few Islais Creek area restaurants.


Huli Huli Hawaiian Grill

Huli Huli Hawaiian Grill is a place that provides great food but does good for the community. Here, the workers of the restaurant have reformed their lives either from crime, drug addiction or both and are making a difference by community service and the maintenance of the garden where Huli Huli gets its fresh ingredients. The food is delicious. Huli means “turn” in Hawaiian and here workers are turning the flavorful meat over and over on the grill for that authentic Hawaiian taste. What patrons also love about Huli Huli is shaved ice in a number of flavors is also available.

The Old Clam House

Established in 1861, The Old Clam House is definitely old in age but not in flavor. The only thing outdated here are the tablecloths. Patrons rave about the various seafood skillets and garlic butter. In addition to the delectable skillets, The Old Clam House has drinks in a fish theme such as the Clamhattan and Aunt Chovie’s Moscow Mule.

Aina

A top-notch restaurant with tons of accolades and a tasting menu diners will enjoy. At Aina, taste is king and authenticity is important. Although Aina boasts of being a modern restaurant, flavors are not lost. There is nothing watered down here. Dining is a fully immersive experience that transports visitors to Hawaii. Locals rave about Aina being their best culinary experience of the year.

Hard Knox Cafe

A brightly decorated diner specializing in Southern cuisine, Hard Knox Cafe is a must-visit spot. Patrons can enjoy classics like succulent deep fried chicken and juicy collard greens. Patrons rave about the oxtail, which falls off the bone, and the cornbread. Both are must-haves to try when available.
