Like some of the other reviews said, at first it was tough to wrap my head around the idea of paying to cook my own steak, but since I know how, it was kinda cool. The place has a nice atmosphere and the wait staff is very helpful and attentive. They will give you tips on grilling if you need... More

Nice steakhouse located in the Gaslamp Quarter. At this particular restaurant you grill your own steak and the staff provides cooked sides that you can select. Sounds weird but good. There are seasonings and spices you can dress your cut of meat with before you grill and I found the meat to be lean and good quality. On a money... More

Clever marketing strategy by whomever named this place. Sure the hostesses and waitresses wear a little less than they typically do in other restaurants, but it's in the name of fun. *However, for those of you offended by stockings, short skirts, and cleavage you may want to stay away. Also, I've heard mixed reviews on whether or not children are... More

I have had Hot Stone meals before but this is my first experience of cooking an entire steak on a grill. I must say that I really enjoyed it and would be happy to recommend it as an experience to anyone visiting San Diego

One of my favorites. Food is better than good and a great place to relax around the grill and chat with friends or family. Always have an upbeat time there. It's different than what you are used to. So it's fun. A guys place.

We went here on good advice and were reluctant at first because of the Vargas Girls on the logo. How wrong! This place is warm in decor and personality with nice people. The food is the best! You order a steak and then go cook it. The waitstaff were around with helpful guidance and the steak was great! Salad was... More

Turned out to be easy and fun and a lot less expensive than other Steak Houses Season your steak and throw it on the grill then go eat your salad for... More

I'm not a griller, but I am a steak eater. This restaurant is all about the meat and cooking it the way you like it. Fortunately, I had my brother and his wife with me so they did all the grilling. We had a mix of flank steak, t-bone and rib-eyes and they were all superb. A big plus were... More

If you know how to BBQ come here! Come during Happy Hour. Wine, beer and mixed drinks at $4. Meat is brought chilled (should be at room temp for best results) to your table. Grill your steak and bread while you sip a cold one. Life should be so good!l
