Welcome to The Eagle Café, a new member of the Simmons Family Waterfront Hospitality Group. Believe it or not, Eagle Café used to be up the street on Embarcadero and Powell! Warren Simmons, our family patriarch who also happens to be the founder of PIER 39, wanted The Eagle Café to be part of the opening line-up of restaurants in this magical place.
Warren devised a crazy plan with the Eagle owners at the time, the Andreotti family, to put the restaurant on jacks and wheel it down the Embarcadero to the pier. Yep, you read that right! The only thing getting in their way was San Francisco bureaucrats, The Landmarks Board. They originally determined the restaurant had no architectural or historical merit, thereby paving the path for its relocation. Only problem is they inexplicably reversed their decision and decided the Eagle must stay put. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed and the SF City Attorney reversed their decision clearing the way for the Eagle to land atop this very spot, taking its place as one of the best PIER 39 restaurants San Francisco has to offer.
