I came here for a party to celebrate the awesome-ness that WAS the World Cup. Everyone was decked out in their favorite team colors and we all cheersed with our Bicardi drinks. Some nom-tacular munchies were laid out for us such as hot wings, sliders, and chicken skewers. The place is the perfect size....not too big, not too small. The service was great, even as the bar began to get more and more packed. I'm a happy camper with this spot, and since it is so close to my work I'm sure I will be back!

Nice downtown watering hole, especially weekends. This is a real suit and tie joint. If your a broad that's into that, this is the place for you. If you work in the area, it's definately worth stopping by for half a dozen martinis.

This was cool place to come and eat lunch though it would be great for dinner and of course sporting events I saw at least 15 TV's!
They have super salads and my boyfriend really liked his burger. They have unique booths to dine in, and a lot of counters to sit at if you like to eat at the bar. You can see a TV from most of the tables.
Overall was a great place for many different occasions and good food always makes you feel good.

The smells that come from this restaurant are amazing. It's always busy, and everyone I have seen walk out of it, comes out happy! I finally tried it, and I was right- Delicious!!!

Royal Exchange is open Mon-Fri, and reserved for private parties on weekends and often closes early on slower nights. This place is great to stop in for a burger and a beer for lunch. if you are going after work for happy hour, prepare to stand or get their early to secure a table. Ladies, tis true...there are way more men in here than there are women. However, it is a fine place to have a burger at lunch during the week.

Now, I am a huge fan of pies and beer. A winning combination at any price range! They have a wide variety of beers. The pies are also spectacular... they really do it right.

Mostly professionals after work come here, so they mostly interact amongst themselves, but you can built camraderie when good games are on TV.

my managers brought me to the royal exchange when i first got hired back in 2005 and i had a mushroom burger. it was really good. the fries were huge. the service was great. my glass of water was never empty. it's perfect for lunch or right after getting off work around 5. great place for singles to meet to.. according to myt coworker, that's where she met her boyfriend.

This place is great to stop in for a burger and a beer for lunch! The meat was perfectly cooked, the bun was not your usual run-of-the-mill sesame, and the fries were perfectly done! I love the huge selection of beers, and the service was great.
I'll have to check it out for the after-work crowd.

Pros: Burgers, Beer Selection, Location

Cons: Busy, Pricey, Parking

The last place I want to be Friday after work is a bar crammed with people, at least a 20 minute wait for a beer and hot, stale air. There is nothing calming and relaxing about this place. If you enjoy re-living frat parties from your college days then this is the place for you. For those of us who have grown-up since college there are plenty of other bars in the area. However, it is a fine place to have a burger at lunch during the week.

Welcoming feel, just like a true English pub. Beers of any kind you could want. Bartenders friendly and atmosphere warm.

I've been to the Royal Exchange several times. I always have a great time. It's a great place to meet new people. The apps are pretty good and the bartenders are always friendly. It gets packed on Fridays, so you might want to go early to get a table. There's a really high guy-girl ratio, so, if you're a single woman looking for your mr. right or right now, you might want to check it out.

Pros: Good drinks. Great service. Good food.

Cons: Parking, but take MUNI.

This place is crowded at all times. Whether you go in for lunch, or after work for happy hour. However, it is worth it. The chili is delicous, they make a decent burger and beef dip, and the grilled flat iron steak is yummy!

Prepare to wait a bit, and if you are going after work for happy hour, prepare to stand or get their early to secure a table. Ladies, tis true...there are way more men in here than there are women (and boy do they have egos!). Still fun, but I never stay here for more than an hour or so...you must move on.

Your typical array of meathead jocks and their hangers on congregate here after work to booze and mingle. BORING! On top of the mindless clientele, the drinks are overpriced and the service is way below average, but they remain entitled and snotty. Overall, I would say don't waste your time on this one and try somewhwere else.

The Royal Exchange is one of a number of Old style pubs that are found in the financial district. The Royal Exchange isnt my favorite (I prefer Harringtons) but I still go there and I still enjoy it. The Royal Exchange also features the Royal Express, which is a quick and convenient take out window. Id definitely recommend this place.

Royal Exchange is a top spot to meet friends after work for a beer or cocktail. Friendly staff and group of people where you can talk/hear friends and meet new people as well. Royal Exchange has been a staple in my groups social circle for many years.

Pros: beer, food

Cons: crowd, prices

There are other bars right next to it like Schroeder's but Royal Exchange is a bit more casual, better lighting, better to watch sports, and has the more traditional pub food fare. The crowd seems to be a bit younger and the atmostphere is better to meet people.
