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

Fun, rude bartender served us complimentary water while we waited for our to go order. Really great food and service at decent prices. The hostess was charming, took our picture with the statue out front, and advised me to put on more sunblock :) Everything you'd expect from Dick's; great location in Gaslamp Quarter.

We (family of four) thought it would be fun to experience this restaurant but as soon as we sat down we realized that it was not going to be fun. Menu chalked on wall and each of us got plastic bibs put on us. That's when my wife said "we're outta here". We went to a real restaurant then.

Dining with a difference. The staff are so friendly and will happily chat to you and have some fun with the diners. Food was really good. There was a band playing steel drums the evening we were there in the outside yard and they gave a real holiday vibe to the experience. Great choice of unique drinks and we went... More

Big bar in the gaslamp area.Very laid back place,people seem to start off here for their first drinks before moving on.The food isn't great quality,they seem to concentrate on quantity rather than quality but it's relatively cheap.Get's very busy with lot's of young groups but there's generally a good atmosphere.

I think both my spouse and I got sick after eating here. Would never go back. In all fairness we were there with my brother and sister in law who had no problems.

The service was horrible. I sat at least 30 min for each serve from drink to appetizer then finally check after 2 hours! To ask for my souvenir glass to be packaged was like asking for the moon. I was a party of 1 so not like a big tab, nor was it very busy. Even the adjoining patrons were... More

Yes, I know this is a chain... which has become completely evident in the last ten years. Just visited this weekend and while I love the casual ambiance and sarcastic service... the value of food/drink has gone into the toilet. (speaking of toilets, the bathrooms could use a cleaning more than once a year). We came here, as we remembered... More
