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

Walking through the Gaslamp area, we decided to head into Dick's Last Resort as it looked fairly laid back and had tables sitting out in the sun. Grabbing a table, we told the server that we were just in for drinks and were we okay sitting at the table? He said that this was fine as the 'food sucked'....We laughed... More

Great atmosphere and a good selection of drinks made it a good choice to have a couple of drinks when on holiday. The bar is good fun and so are the t-shirts...

I had the crab balls, kinda smallish but nice. Our daughter had a half a rack and could've eaten another order easy. Tender, a little messy and yum! During lunch time, we find this place to be about the same as any other restaurant as far as service, atmosphere. The paper hats are cute.

Wait staff was hysterical with lots of banter. Food & drink was great. Restaurant is in an area with lots of other restaurants and stores. Many older buildings were refurbished and quaint.

Food was okay. I had the crab cakes which where nothing to rave about and my husband had the "Dolly Parton" (chicken breasts) which was also fair. When you go to Dick's, you're going for the novelty of the atmosphere. Everyone in our party (8) received a "hat" made of butcher paper with obnoxious sayings. The hats made for laughs... More
