Door to door eateries of all kinds, mostly pretty average and over-priced. But, if its a meal you want you'll surely find it here - in spades. Glad we went but once is probably enough for our group. Lots of homeless looking for a handout.

An easy way to spend an evening, a lot of good restaurants, a lot of bars, a lot of homeless people although there is also a lot of security.

This is a good district to wander round at night when the gas lamps are on. It's a good dustrict for shopping and eating and has many pubs as well. Plenty to keep you occupied in the daytime too.

The Gaslamp Quarter is a walkable area with buildings dating back 100s of years. Look up to see the various facades, details, windows, and rooflines. Fascinating. Most of the Quarter businesses are restaurants. Check out several online (Trip Advisor!) and then in person. There are many choices.

Within easy walking distance of depot train station. Many of the restaurants were closed at lunchtime. Numerous beggars on the streets. Some wonderful buildings with historic plaques that provide background information. Appear to be a number of night clubs therefore after dark may be more exciting than during the day.

Went to multiple restaurants and bars here, very good food and drinks - can't go wrong much here. Places here are open late and people come hang out here for a chill evening.

Very nice area with a lot to choose from for drinks and food. Felt safe walking with a group of girls. Well lit and easy to get a cab or Uber.
