If you need to be reminded that you live in a place surrounded by lots of water, head to Mission Rock Resort, a two-story restaurant and bar located on the shores of Mission Bay and down the street from the Chase Center. You would do well coming here to drink cocktails and beers while staring at the Bay views from their outdoor patio, or meet up with friends before a Warriors game. Mission Rock Resort isn’t the cheapest spot to get food (the burger is $20), but if you do get hungry, they serve Dungeness crab rolls, fish and chips, and oysters.
