OK food, fun atmosphere

We went here for lunch, our 10 year old daughter was with us. This place can get out of hand later in the day, but it was ok for her at lunch. The whole concept of this place is that the servers are jerks to you on purpose. Our daughter didn't understand that at first but quickly caught on... read more

Interesting place. You have to come here knowing that they are supposed to be jerks to you. It's part of the atmosphere. The servers can be really snarky. It's their job. Don't go if you don't want to deal with that. The food is good.

So another 60 minute line up, but worth it. You go here to be abused, but they know how to pick and choose. We were with kids so they were pretty mellow, though I did get the waiters attention to get a hat for my daughter. The food was good and the service was quick. I loved the atmosphere as... More

What they wrote on the hats was inappropriate and horribly sexual. They even wrote rude and gross comments on the kids hats. I will never go back.

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 took ages but then again, our...

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
