The days of free food spreads luring our beleaguered workforce into watering holes are quickly disappearing. Fortunately, Eye on the Bay’s Dave Stoelk has scouted a few spots that still offer a free bite to eat for the after work crowd. Here are his suggestions for San Francisco:


240 Front Street
San Francisco, CA 94111
(415) 421-4778

This traditional German beer hall has one of the signature happy hour selections in San Francisco. Bavarian meatballs and garlic fries are among the free bites to try while you down a “boot” of beer.
