A "Grub Crawl" is essentially a walking social food tour  in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. We take a group of Grub Crawlers to a series of restaurants and have everyone taste the best dishes each restaurant has to offer, all in one night. Reservations are already set. Each restaurant selects the dish they want to showcase. We provide a completely unique dining experience at a reasonable and discounted price! Grub Crawlers get to indulge themselves in the food, the restaurants, the culture, and the San Francisco Neighborhoods.

1 Crawl. 3 Restaurants. Infinite Fun.

San Francisco Social Food Tour New Dining Experiences in San Francisco SF Foodies


The "Grub Crawl" idea came about after the company founders went on a three and a half week backpacking adventure through nine European cities. During that trip, they joined a number of guided pub crawls that brought groups of people to a series of pubs, bars and clubs all in one night. They left Europe intrigued by the pub crawl experience of meeting new people and trying different venues.

Back home in San Francisco, dining out at one of the local restaurants the idea hit them smack across their faces, mouths, and taste buds. They wanted to bring the same fun experience home, but wanted to put a unique twist on it.

"Instead of a pub crawl, we should name it Grub Crawl and take everyone to all these great restaurants! After all, the San Francisco Bay Area is considered one of the food meccas of the world.”

The first Grub Crawl happened one night in 2009 with close friends. The reviews were outstanding. The founders knew they had something big and thought everyone should come on a Grub Crawl! After thorough planning, Grub Crawl launched their website,, in 2010.

Since then, Grub Crawl has been an outlet for those individuals with an appreciation for diverse tastes, discovering unique restaurants and meeting new people.
