Harris’ is your father’s favorite steakhouse. This means it’s a little more upscale than one of those trendy joints with small portions, and, you know, chicks. The good news is that Harris’ occasionally has cool jazz playing in the bar area and always delivers a good meal. It’s a quintessential steakhouse, which means no frills: just great appetizers, creamy desserts, and thick, juicy slabs o’ beef cooked to perfection. The downside is that the main dining room is not ideal for a larger bachelor party. So, if you act early enough you can reserve a private room and then whoop it up in the privacy of your own private steak den. This will be important for when you play “pin the fillet on the bachelor,” a true San Francisco tradition. No, really.

Venue Tip: 

C’mon, reserve the private room. Your friend the Bachelor deserves better than to be treated like some common consumer of beef. Treat him right for once.

The Good: 
Classy (if that’s what you’re seeking); seeing the meats hanging like a butcher shop when you walk in (if that can be considered classy in any civilized world).
The Bad: 
Harris’ is generally a low key environment, meaning most of the patrons will not be there to find out the reason behind the “don’t mix beer and wine” adage.
