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.

This is the best Shepard's Pie I've ever had. It is even better than the varieties I tasted when visiting Ireland. The vegetables, meat, and sauce were perfectly prepared and presented. There was a 15 minute wait for a table so we sat at the bar and enjoyed a Smithwick's and a Guiness....both perfect pours. We were having such a... More

Good setting but the female waitress could do with a little more of a friendly appearance! Selection of authentic Irish fare was just mediocre but enjoyable. Irish Coffee was great though!

The Field is one of my favorite places to eat since I began coming to San Diego ten years ago. Their menu is great but my favorite thing is the Shepard's Pie. They also serve breakfast on the weekend.

I used to frequent The Field during college, 15 years ago, and decided to stop by with a few friends recently after I bragged about it to them so much. Not much had changed, the bar atmosphere is still amazing (and it should be having been shipped from Ireland) and the staff was great as always. We had a great... More

This was my first authentic pub experience! It was awesome! I am not much of a beer drinker but I obviously decided I just had to have a beer and asked my server for a recommendation.
