We went here one night because the wait at the nearby Cheesecake factory was excessive. We got in immediately. The structure is right off seaport village and is older. The bathrooms needed cleaning. Our orders were immediately taken. I had fish and chips and it was the best fish and chips I had ever had. My wife had some shrimp... More

Service was on top of it and did not bother us for sitting 2 plus hrs talking. Great fireworks on Saturday night out side over... More

I was in town on business and met my son and his wife who live in the area. Was hoping for an enjoyable evening but it turned out to be one of the worst dinning experiences I've had in a long time. Started with the inattentive service, waited for drinks, waiter got the order wrong and after we were served... More

We shared half a dozen oysters which were fresh but quite small in size. We both ordered (different) fish mains which were a little dry. I did like my quinoa side though. Overall the food was very average and we could have definitely had better elsewhere for the price. Service was good though.

My husband and I ate here when we visited San Diego recently. We were staying near the area and after reading the menu decided to give it a try. The menu just sounded Soooo good and we were really getting hungry because it was getting late. The view would be very nice since we were seated on the second story,... More

The food was average and the service was somewhere around average or below. We sat on the porch or side add on of the place and the most entertaining thing were the locals out doing fire tricks out in the park. Had high hopes for a great meal with the location and appearance but I guess I was wrong.

So many places to go have a great lunch and/or dinner in San Diego... Don't go here! Have to admit that view is great but the food was very lazy. Our server was a good guy but thought he looked overwhelmed. My sons burger was a huge bun and tiny meat, calamari was very salty. We should've gone to the... More

My first time visiting Downtown San Diego, and attending our company Christmas Party. First off the restaurant was at a walking distance from my hotel, which was great. Upon arrival, the hostess greated and escorted us to our party, he was friendly and extremely professional. The bar was great, food delicious and but desert was wow, just to die for.... More

This is a place that offers a nice seaside view. The upstairs rooms look out to the water front with people and ships going by. The food is competent but not special. Service is good although a bit slow except for business we didn't mind. The wine choices are boring but the choices are usable. All and all it fit... More
