This James-Beard-award-winning restaurant got its start as a simple coffee stand in 1849. In 1887, a Croatian immigrant named John Tadich purchased the stand and renamed it Tadich Grill. Tadich’s original claim to fame was as the first restaurant in town to cook seafood over a charcoal grill in the Croatian tradition, a method that continues to draw patrons even after the restaurant moved to its current Financial District location in 1967. The charcoal grilled sole, halibut and swordfish remain Tadich mainstays alongside other succulent seafood dishes.

True San Francisco cold day restaurant. This place is a hole in the wall that seems deceiving from the outside. Surprisingly the inside is very spacious. The bar takes up the majority of the restaurant with seating on one side at the bar and table seating on the other side. There are little knooks for table of 6-10 which is good. The servers have been working there for over 20 or 30 years. They're well seasoned. The food was amazing. Plain and simple. I definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a good dinner!
