The Cannery is an attractive three story brick building, once the largest peach canning plant in the world, now restored and home to an interesting mix of restaurants, souvenir and craft shops. More about it here - Delmonte Square.
Jack's Bar is at ground level facing out onto the sea front. It has a nice dim and warm atmosphere, fantastic and unusual bar choices (especially draught beers and ciders) and the occasional impromptu musical performance - people just seem to turn up and have a go - maybe its more organised than it looks, but I hope not.
We took the steak dinner - it starts at $10, but I think ours was about $14. Great value. Like most bar restaurants, the menu is not the widest in the world, but there are choices to suit everyone.
Whilst the food is cheap, the bar prices are just reasonable. Combine that with the fact that the atmosphere is quite addictive, the bar choice is extensive and intriguing, and you may well find out by examining the change left in your pocket in the morning that your "budget" night out ended up being dearer than you thought.
Let's put Jack's Bar in to perspective. If you are a bit of a raver and are looking for a thrill-a-minute hi-octane experience, then you are better off heading off to SoMa or Mission or somewhere like that. If you're more of a day person and all you want from an evening is a friendly atmosphere, a good meal and drink(s) in casual surroundings as a reward for a hard-day's traipsing up and down hills, this will be right up your street.
