Let me start by saying I'm a longtime reader and first-time poster and that I have searched the boards but haven't really found what I'm looking for.
I'm looking for a dinner spot for a group of 12 guys in SF for a bachelor party. We're staying in Union Square but I don't think traveling will be a problem as long as it's not too terribly far. I'm looking for a spot that will accommodate the twelve of us at one (maybe two) large table(s) and has great food/drinks. It doesn't need to be fancy at all, just good.
Also, we're not the crazy types, but somewhere a little "lively" would be nice so we can joke around and feel good about having a little fun. I guess some kind of gastropub would be a good fit, but I haven't found anything.
From scouring the board, I've come up with the following options but am not married to any of them:
Thanks for any help.
