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. As you might imagine, we got a little nostalgic about the Eagle landing with our family of PIER 39 restaurants. Though Warren passed away in 2006, we know he’s smiling down on us and having a good laugh that after 40 years, his colorful connection to this restaurant has come full circle. Today, the Simmons family business is run by oldest son Scooter and grandson Ryan, not to mention a core group of employees who are like family, and who have been with us two to three decades.
