We stopped in for a drink twice and sat at the bar. The bartender Kat was fantastic and very entertaining. The staff are expected to be "reference the name of the bar" and when an abnoxius customer would be at the bar, Kat was very good at berating them with pointed yet honest comments. Nowadays, we often witness such bad... More

Extremely disappointed. We had reservations for 6 pple at 5:45pm on Sunday for my daughter's 18th birthday. The food was good. The service sucked! Our waiter completely forgot about us. He put one hat on a girl 20 minutes in and then no one else got a hat over the 2 hour drawn out boring wait. There was no entertaining... More

If you enjoy heckling/being heckled, good bar food, and a lot of silliness -- stop here! We had checked other restaurants up and down the Gaslamp District and they didn't thrill us. We found Dick's and knew we were in for a good time. It's a shame several of the other reviewers didn't appreciate the raucous fun and boisterous wait... More

I would never go back again even if someone paid me! I guess they get paid to be rude to customers, but I would never pay for this kind of service to begin with. The food was disappointing! Small portions and overpriced. I've never left a restaurant still feeling hungry. They do family style seating where they sit you with... More

Wandering the Gaslamp District, we weren't looking for drinks but couldn't miss the Crappy Hour sign from half a block away. The "Shame O' the Gaslamp" sign sealed the deal ... we had to check this out. Our server couldn't or wouldn't tell us what the happy hour specials were. She kept shoving drink specials menus at us (which had... More

My friend & I stopped at Dick's for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon around 3 pm. I was a bit surprised that there were only 2 other people on the patio & no one in the actual restaurant. Maybe it was the wrong time of day to visit but I really thought this place would have been a... More

We went on Thurs for the Working Stiff Lunch, Bacon burgers, fries, and a coke or iced tea. The burger was very good, really big. The fries were warm, not hot, but ok. The Coke and Iced tea were really big. The server was really nice, and did talk to us. He wasn't a dick, nor did he treat us... More

Don't go here for the food or drinks, go here for the experience. From being sassed and glared at by the staff at every turn (on purpose), to the ridiculously inappropriate and insulting hats they make for you, I coudn't stop laughing the whole time they were here. Food tastes like Costco deli food (I had the chicken alfredo with... More

We went here for lunch. My friend had trouble getting the beer he wanted as they were out of brand A and when he wanted his 2nd bottle of brand B, they were out of that too. We had the cat fish dinner and it was nice. The atmosphere is different and refreshing.

Apparently this bar/restaurant prides itself on surly staff - which we did not know about when we sat at the bar for a drink today. The barmaid was aggressive and ignorant and still complained when she did not receive a tip. Some people have lost sight of the fact that a tip is a reward for good service - not... More
