Tadich Grill is a family business which has been in continuous operation since 1849, during the California Gold Rush days. First begun as a coffee stand by three Croatian immigrants, Tadich is one of San Francisco's landmark restaurants. The myriad seafood is prepared charcoal broiled, grilled, saut»ed, poached, deep-fried, or baked in a casserole. The food here is straightforward and of high quality. Excellent sourdough bread, a menu that's printed daily with specials, and a large selection of fresh seafood make Tadich's special. Non-seafood eaters can enjoy the meats from the charcoal broiler including calf's liver steak, hamburger steak, lamb chops, pork chops, chicken and four kinds of beef steak.
Whether you come in for a drink at the clubby bar (not a separate room) or a full meal, the Tadich feel will take you back in time.
