Jan 22, 2013 - Hearts in San Francisco

San Francisco is the most liberal and cosmopolitan city on the West Coast, and this is reflected in its people, its culture, and its cuisine. A good way to see San Francisco is with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from New Charter Bus.  Ride through the streets of San Francisco in style and comfort in your charter bus as your reliable charter bus driver takes you and your to your charter bus destination.

Take your charter bus over to a genuine San Francisco landmark. The Swan Oyster Depot has been in the business of serving fresh seafood since 1912. Behind the marble topped counter, friendly employees shuck fresh oyster that go straight from the tank to the plate. The menu is very much no frills, with steamed crab, shrimp and lobster on offer, but don’t expect any fancy sauces or garnishes. The Swan Oyster Depot is simply about good old fashioned seafood, served fresh and without fuss. Wash your seafood down with some draft beer while sitting on one of the wooden stool, while you soak in the neighborhood ambiance of this down to earth restaurant.

Original Joe’s is one of those rarities in today’s corporate controlled world, a true family owned and operated restaurant. Opening in a new location in 2011 after the original was destroyed by fire in 2007, this iconic Italian restaurant has moved on to new heights. All the nostalgic elements of the original Original Joe’s remain, the comfortable red booths, shaded hanging lamps and tuxedo-ed waiters, but the new interior with soaring ceilings and abundant lighting gives the place a new vibe. The menu is still much the same, serving Italian-American classics that has pleased San Franciscans and charter bus diners for decades. Meatballs in tomato sauce, chicken Parmesan with tender chicken breast, and decadent desserts.

Get into your charter bus for a short to to Nob Hill and alight at the Fairmont Hotel. Take in the panoramic views of the city from the front entrance before heading into the Tonga Room and Hurricane Bar. The Polynesian themed bar is almost 1950s kitsch, and will certainly put charter bus diners in mind of stepping into an adult version of Disneyland's The Pirates of the Caribbean. The lights are dimmed to highlight an array of tiki torches which encircle the central pool, and a huge raft floats around the pool with a live band belting out top 40 tunes for the lively bar. The menu is Pan Asian and Pacific Rim, with dishes such as chicken satay with peanut sauce, Mongolian beef, and lemongrass and fennel crusted butterfish with roasted ginger and scallions. A couple of times an hour the sound of thunder quakes through the room and a mist drops onto the dance floor
