Rude staff, bolshy service - 1st Class!!

this place was brilliant. the nachos were unbelievable and the food came with cusses left, right and centre. if you're easily rubbed up the wrong way then you should steer clear of this place. if you enjoy a laugh and can take banter then get yourself down there. only criticism is that the bill... read more

This was one of the worse dining experience of my life! Server was not engaging but just mean. Over priced and the kids waited and waited for the funny hats that never came! I'll never go back to a Dicks ever!

Loved the place, awesome food, the service is gruff, which is the whole reason for the place. They make paper hats with funny sayings on them!! They throw stuff and yell!! Very comical, I enjoyed every minute!!!!

Stan Miller We were there last night with a group of 20 or so and had reserved a section of the restaurant outside with the preset menu with limited options. I'm not going to waste a lot of time here. The food was beyond bad. The service was equally bad. It took forever to get both drink and food orders... More

I had never been there before and did not know what to expect. I ate outside, no frills, but great service. The grilled salmon was terrific, started off with pretty good catfish nuggets for an appetizer. All good, would go there again. Moderately priced for the Gaslamp district.

Like all of the other Dick's Last Resorts we've visited, we expected to be treated badly, and they didn't disappoint. It was fun, the server was really fun (can't say her name here - not family friendly). We had a few apps and some beers and it was up to par. Make sure to have some fun with your server... More

I am in San Diego on business so dining solo. Not my favorite thing to but I like to people watch. I went to Dicks because it had loud music and lots of people wearing paper hats so it looked fun. This is the place if you want a souvenir glass and some really big drinks. It has a sassy... More

You have been warned. I risked 3 "food" items, all far below mediocre. If you value your digestive system go after dining elsewhere, with some good-humored friends, for a drink and some rude clowning by the wait staff. If you don't enjoy being the target of irrelevant wisecracks, some mild and others not-so, skip it.

Let me begin by saying I had never heard of this place, nor it's reputation when a group of 7 scientists from Iowa showed up here to grab lunch before a conference nearby-- but we had a blast! This place is not for the timid or faint of heart, but if you are willing to play along and dish out... More

Its a gimmick and they are good at doing it. In the centre of town gas lamp area. parking restricted. we walked down from the marriet hotel. Its a fun place and dont expect a great al a carte service.
