The iconic floating restaurant Forbes Island has shuttered for good.
“After nearly 20 years at the Pier 39 Marina, Forbes Island has closed and is ready to set sail for a new adventure,” Sue Muzzin, a Pier 39 spokesperson, told Eater SF.
The “island” that is a converted barge was originally designed a s a home for owner Forbes Kiddoo. He later converted it to a restaurant that bounced around Bay Area location until finding a home at Pier 39 in 1999.
Currently, their website simply says, “Forbes Island is Currently CLOSED.”
