Forbes Island Restaurant

I have a fabulous restaurant pick... if you are ever in SF and looking for something a little different, give Forbes Island a try. :)

Two of my brother in laws, Joe & Dave, are celebrating Birthdays this month... and to celebrate, my fabo mother in law took us all out to dinner!  I love going out to dinner with this woman, she is so fun & she always knows how to pick something good.  We ate at Forbes Island and it was a cool experience. 

This is how it works - you go to this little tiny dock right next to Pier 39 in San Francisco.  You walk down to this enclosed boat and are greeted by this sweet older gentleman.  His name: Forbes.  The owner of the restaurant takes you personally to his place.  A very short (about 2 min) boat ride later, you arrive at this teenie tiny man-made island covered in lights, complete with a lighthouse, small out door fire place, and lovely little cocktail bar.

You walk down a few stairs to the dining room and there are little underwater windows where you can see the fish swimming.  All around the dining area is decorated with a pirate theme.  It is so cool... not to mention, I thought the food was really good! 
It's the little well lit island on the right... the view of the city is to the left.

pics found here, here, and here.
Hope you had a great week! 
I have so much catching up to do on everyone's blogs.
xoxo

Jason and I always see that when we are at Pier 39. I have wondered if the food is any good, but it sounds like it was great! Maybe we'll try it next time:-)
