Priority Pass Restaurant: Yankee Pier at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Review

Yankee Pier at SFO was recently added to the Priority Pass restaurant network. Any addition to the Priority Pass network at SFO is welcome because the Amex Centurion Lounge is becoming more crowded, and the KLM Lounge often turns people away.

Where to find Yankee Pier at SFO

Yankee Pier is located post-security in Terminal 3, next to Gate 72. The International Terminal is connected to Terminal 3 via walkways.

Hours: Daily, 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Visit website here.

Priority Pass


Depending on the Priority Pass policy from your credit card, you’ll receive a $28 dining credit. Be sure to let your server know before ordering that you are using the Priority Pass card so they can swipe your card.

With the Amex Platinum and Chase Sapphire Reserve, you get a complimentary $28 dining credit for yourself, plus an additional $28 credit for each guest (up to 2).

This means that if you bring a guest, you’ll have a total of $56 dining credit to use towards the bill.

Important: Tip is not covered in the dining credit. If you wish to tip using a credit card, let your server know so they can process it accordingly.

The Food

If you’re craving seafood, Yankee Pier is the perfect place to get a bowl of clam chowder or a lobster roll. The $28 credit is enough to cover most entrees.

We ended up sharing a lobster roll and a bowl of clam chowder since we weren’t that hungry.

The clam chowder was great! Lots of flavor and plenty of clams in the chowder.  


The lobster roll tasted fresh, but I expected a bit more lobster. The bun wasn’t filled all the way, but I can’t complain since Priority Pass is footing the bill. Overall, good lobster roll if you’re in the mood for one.

On a side note, Yankee Pier has won numerous awards for being a great airport dining option. The servers were helpful and alert. It was an easy dining experience.
