Out of business. This was a good restaurant for reasonable meals. Now the place to go for a good breakfast and lunch is Old Town Eatery and Cafe, also on Congress. Dog friendly.

We found this little store and ended up wondering around for along time. They have everything from beautiful rocks, rough gem stones, to new and Dino shark teeth. Even Dino poop.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant in Old Town. It was okay but overpriced for the quality of food. Waiters and hostess seemed annoyed with us that we requested a table that didn't have the sun shining directly in our eyes - even though we were the only people eating on the patio.

The food was lovely and they offer some local beers on tap. The waiter who served us was very polite and knowledgable. We would highly recommend this place. They do good burgers, steaks and some pasta. Try it

If you ever go to Old Town San Diego you need to eat at the Old Town Mining Company. Great steaks, fish and chips, Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches and best of all is Brandon! He is host, waiter, and manager. He is personable, friendly and the epitome of what a someone in the customer service business should be. We had... More

We had read some mixed reviews about this restaurant and decided to try it anyway. The ribeye steak was cooked as ordered and the Mahi Mahi Vera Cruz style was fresh and delicious. The waitstaff was attentive as well. The only reason I could think that previous reviews were negative is that the diners were there at a busy time.

I enjoyed their salads and the apple chicken dish. My husband and I were in town for our anniversary. All was going well, but our waitress, a dark-haired woman, never returned to see if we needed anything or even bring our check. We had to ask another waiter to get her, but she was "too busy." There were only six... More
