The Tipsy Pig is a new Gastro Pub in San Francisco’s Marina District from the folks who run Mamacita and Umami. They focus on libations and serve American comfort food. They are open late, with the last seating at 10-11pm.

Decor, Vibe – Nice classic rustic old English pub style decor. The place was packed with the Marina crowd, lots of designer denim. Tipsy Pig was extremely loud, almost excessively so. It was hard to heard someone a foot away! They have a nice looking patio in the back for better weather days.
Blood Orange Collins ($9) with gin, lemon, ginger, soda and blood orage was a good cocktail. Potent and flavorful.
Warm Cheddar and Thyme Biscuit ($5) with spiced honey had 2 huge delicious biscuits. Nice dipping sauce.
Baby Spinach Salad ($10) with Kabocha squash, Pancetta, Manchego, Shaved egg and sherry vinagrette was a good salad and of good size. Fresh spinach. The dressing was a little too sour though.
Fried Free Range Chicken Breast ($18) with gravy, buttermilk mash, Collard greens and spiced honey was very juicy and lightly breaded. Pretty good implementation.
Apple Crumble Dessert ($8) was hot out of the oven with ice cream on top. Topping was a little mushy, apple’s were slightly buttery but good.
Tipsy Sliders ($12) were three Chimay braised pulled pork and red cabbage slaw on Hawaiian sweet buns did not have a lot of flavor to them. The pork was tender and buns very soft.
Maple Brined Niman Pork Chop ($23) with drunken apples, grain mustard sauce and yukon gold brussel sprout hash was not that big, but was cooked ok. The hash was large but on the burned side.
The Tipsy Pig had decent service with the server coming by ever so often. The sound level is too lound in this place. Hard to converse. Food was better than expected and portions are good. If you are looking for a drink and some high quality pub grub, give this place a try.
They have a kids menu and will be adding lunch and brunch in the future.
