The food is mediocre at best, but the atmosphere and the jokes makes this a fun place to go. However, not sure if I would return here would I have the chance.

I do not know if it was the third string crew, if the staff is not thrilled about working there, or they are caught up in the overall all essence of "poor" service and forgot the showmanship that I was expecting. I was expecting it to be fun and it wasn't, and this was evening time on a Friday night... More

If you've never been to Dick's Last Resort, I suggest it at least once. We always have a great time and this time was no different. We attended on a Friday night during Comic-Con and were amazingly able to sit down right away. Our waiter was excellent. He was funny without being completely rude, even though that is part the...

We had a great time here at Dicks with quick service, fun atmosphere, hilarious staff and live music. We brought our entire family but I can see how some families would not want there kids there. Their humor can be quite rude sometimes... I love it but some people would take offence. Its just part of the fun!! Their food... More

Fine dining it's not, but if you want to have some fun with some average food and good drinks in San Diego, head down to Dicks.

This place has fast service and great food, the only thing I wasn't ready for was the abruptness of the staff. The hostess shouts at you where to sit, which threw me at first! The food and service more than make up for the shouting!

If you want to experience a restaurant where the joke is on you, this place is for you! I'm happy that I can finally say that I ate at a Dick'sRestaurant - the experience is similar as kissing the high school (w)hore. Everyone kissed her, too, but you wanted to see what the fuss was all about. Some Dick'sRestaurants are... More

Just another good 'ol Dick's venue in the Gaslamp area of San Diego. Worth a visit if you want nothing more that a beer 'n burger. They have a decent selection of small/independant brewery beer and an acceptable bar style food menu. Not necessarily a place to take young children as the banter from the staff can get a little...

Ever go to a restaurant and have a bad experience? Of course, we all have! Dick's does it on purpose. I think the name of the restaurant says it all. It's a spoof of the worst dining experiences you've had! If it's your first time they make a gigantic dunce type hat for you out of butcher paper with an... More
