Scoma's Restaurant to celebrate its 47th Birthday along with the 75 year anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge

Scoma’s Restaurant is thrilled to share its 47th birthday with the iconic, 75-year-old Golden Gate Bridge this month, and Scoma’s—which offers group dining and fresh seafood, including Dungeness crabs—is commemorating the occasion. Scoma’s celebrates the Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th birthday with a colorful, limited-edition commemorative beverage glass that features a true-to-life rendition of the bridge on one side and Scoma’s logo on the other. Scoma’s Restaurant’s proprietary Golden Gate Sunset Cocktail, created especially to salute the anniversary, is served in the glass at $14 for guests to keep the glass; the souvenir glass itself is just $7.

The Golden Gate Bridge was just 28 years old when, in 1965, brothers Al and Joe Scoma heard about a small coffee shop on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf that was for sale. The brothers bought the tiny, six-seat coffee shop on Pier 47 and served local fishermen breakfast and burgers. Using their mother’s recipes, they began the long and ultimately successful process of turning the hidden local hangout into one of the nation’s highest grossing, independent restaurants.

Both iconic landmarks–the Golden Gate Bridge and Scoma’s Restaurant–are vital touchstones for locals and tourists alike. Now 47 years old, the award-winning restaurant continues to serve San Francisco’s freshest seafood in the heart of the Wharf’s fishing industry with views of the cherished bridge and the beautiful city. Over the years, the Scoma family has hosted royalty, sports legends, politicians and celebrities from television, stage and film. Many of these visits are memorialized in photos throughout the restaurant.
