We enjoyed the vibe while seated outside. It took quite awhile for someone to come to our table even though servers passed by numerous times without even saying something like, "Someone will be with you in a minute, we're really busy right now." Later we had to go inside to hunt someone down to get our check.

This is a good sports bar to stop by for cold beer and good food if you're hungry. The drinks and food prices are good here. Food always comes out hot and in generous portion. Have specials throughout the week.

We stopped in a for a couple of drinks before our concert. A beer and a Long Island for $9. Not bad for pricing! Bartender was nice. May go back and try the food on another visit.

Had the deep fried pickles and the nachos. Was wonderful and a lot! Wasn't expecting so much. Better be ready to eat! Lots of food at a realistic price. Also have good BEER.

We were looking for someplace in the Vista to watch the World Cup final with friends. Wild Hare was perfect. My husband loves Liberty which is across the street but I wanted something with more of a sports bar vibe. Didn't want to be screaming GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLL! and annoying the other diners. To be honest until I saw this entry in... More

I’ve eaten at Wild Hare many times and have never been disappointed…at least not with the food. You would think sitting at the bar would provide faster service, but it wasn’t the case for me. The bartender was more interested in checking their phone than making sure I was accommodated. In any event, the food was pretty good as always.... More

We stopped here while visiting the book fare. The outside seating was packed and we sat inside. The area was cool and surprisingly not noisy. We ordered the chips and salsa. The chips were obviously from a bag but were crunchy and fresh. The salsa had a little kick after you first taste it. It is similar to a black... More

My co-worker and I like to go there for chili. Good prices, decent service; Its a great lunch spot. Parking can be a little "harey" but other than that, I'd recommend it as a sports bar.

Went with a group of friends and had a wonderful time. Staff was awesome! Drinks were cold and never went empty. Super low prices on all drinks and food. Recommend this bar over any in the vista.
