Join us in our turn of the century Irish pub, shipped piece by piece from Ireland and relocated in the heart of San Diego's Historic Gaslamp Quarter.As soon as you walk through the door you will be enveloped by the warm relaxing atmosphere of an old Irish country pub. Irish people the world over have earned a reputation for their friendliness and hospitality, so our crew will make you feel welcome and relaxed as soon as you meet them.Our menu includes all of your Irish favorites, like shepherd’s pie, corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips, Guinness beef stew, boxty dishes and full Irish breakfast served all day.The Field is happy to offer discounted food and drinks during happy hour, from opening until 7 PM Monday - Friday and from opening until 5 PM Saturday and Sunday.The air at The Field is filled with the buzz of people engaging in the art of conversation, savoring the homemade food, enjoying the traditional music and of course the clink of glasses as revelers sample one of our many imported draft beers. If you prefer something a little stronger, we boast one of San Diego's largest selection of single malt and blended whiskey. Irish, Scotch, Bourbon, and Rye are all available, with over 50 different labels in all.

Great Music. Smokey Scotches.

The Fish & Chips were so-so, but the rest of the place was great. Kind of expensive Beers, Scotches, etc.

I previously reviewed The Field but did not have dinner. This time we ate and it was fantastic. I had the Sheppard's Pie - very flavorful, tender beef, and everything tasted fresh, not frozen. My friends had the skirt steak and reported the beef being exceptionally tender and the sides fresh and delicious. We were there for trivia night which... More

We like plain food- tasty, not too expensive. Not fans of big plates with swirls of sauce and a tiny stack of something in the middle. We had good, filling sandwiches at a reasonable price and there were a couple of types of hard cider to choose from- something that's hard to find in the US.

My friends & I weren't sure where to start when we entered the Gas Lamp District and this place looked inviting without a bunch of 21 year olds all around. We went on a Friday night and there was a great band playing some Irish & some pop music which was awesome. Our drinks were good and we had a... More

On a recent vacation to San Diego, we were able to stop at the Field Irish pub and restaurant in the gaslamp district of San Diego. It was very reminiscent of pubs we've visited in Dublin. The Guinness, food, atmosphere, and service were all outstanding! Unless you're watching whatever game is on the big screen, ask for a table upstairs... More
