No frills, friendly, noisy and fun. Fair prices, excellent service! Love the warm peanuts in the shell.

A very good bar in airy surroundings, gets noisy but that's the fun. Great range of beers and well priced pitchers available. On sunny days (most of the time) the walls come off and inside comes outside.

Stopped into this spot after hearing a live DJ playing some great music. I am always a fan of the small "dive" bars. It was a Sunday so everyone was out in their football gear for Sunday Funday. People were dancing and tying one on. Beers were cold, atmosphere was just what I expected it to be. My only complaint... More

Bunch of punky beach jerks that act cool and steal your beer first chance they get and bartenders who don't give a ***

This is a gem in San Diego. It's the perfect spot to hit if you want a beach bar that is not pretentious and snooty. Hot peanuts, cheap strong drinks, wonderful bar tenders and great music. You can stand out on the deck and watch the waves of the Pacific Ocean crash in the sand.

We came here more than once on our most recent visit to Pacific Beach & that says a lot. A dive bar with a little patio. No food, but they do have warm peanuts in the shell. A nice place to sit outside with an ice cold beer after a day at the beach.

Great prices on drinks for the location. I am a huge fan of dive bars and this one is one of my favorites. I enjoy going in there on off hours and being able to sit at the bar, get a drink, and not have hundreds of people all around.
