Nice Neighborhood Casual Eatery

They do a nice job here! If you are in the mood to eat out, don't want to have to dress up and want some home cooked comfort type food - head to Adams Avenue Grill. It is a great go-to place that has been around a long time. They have an extensive menu with items to please everyone (even... read more

We have family in San Diego, and they live near this great restaurant. So once we enjoyed it, we always ask to go back. Staff is great and cheerful. Menu is creative. Atmosphere is pleasant...it's everything a good restaurant should be. You'll find great entrees for anyone at this great little restaurant.

Used to work near here so now I have to come a bit further but so well worth it! Had the French toast today,creme broulle style, very... More

Stopped at this small family place with local friends before a day of sightseeing in San Diego. What a great surprise. Every employee is extremely friendly and every food item is fresh made. We actually decided to go back on our 2nd day in town, even though it was a drive across town. TIP: They make their own chorizo and... More

Excellent food and service. This restaurant is a jewel. Fabulous French Onion soup, Cobb salad and an incredible chocolate cake dessert with a Shamrock on top. I can honestly say that everything that came out of the kitchen looked scrumptious... Definitely somewhere I will return to!

We were staying right around the corner from this restaurant but didn't notice it until we needed a place to eat before heading to the airport. Last San Diego restaurant of our vacation but definitely not the least. Our server Kelly was very good, great at suggesting menu items and honest about portions. Chop chop salad was fresh and tasty,... More

Went to Adams on a recommendation of some family. Located in a small neighborhood we went with 5 people for lunch one afternoon. We found the menu eclectic, but with good choices for everyone. Had the onion rings as a starter they were good not great which would describe most items we had. The only thing not enjoyed was the... More

A very diverse menu and beautiful presentation. I got the eggs caprese so two over easy eggs with polenta, fresh basil, tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella drizzled with balsamic reduction. Outstanding. My friend ordered the creme brulee soaked french toast with berry compote and fresh chantilly cream. His was also amazing!!
