The service is great, waitresses must be the most hardworking employees around, and they do their job with great enthusiasm. Food's fresh and tasty and prepared fairly close to homemade as possible. Many seniors like this establishment as the... More

When a restaurant becomes so familiar and so comfortable that it feels like part of the family , one is clearly wary about recommending it highly to everyone, lest it become too popular; that popularity then coming at the expense of one’s own enjoyment of the place. This could easily become the case for Troy’s Family Restaurant, a favorite of... More

This family owned restaurant has consistently good food and offers a great bargain for families. It is located near theaters and makes a tasty home style cooking stop before the show.

Basically good food, but the service can be slow. Sometimes the fish and chips is stellar, sometimes lousy. I most recently had the hamburger (no brainer) and it was OK, but not great. One of the last relics of Clairemont, and I don't mean the patrons.

My dad likes Troy's, so we go with him when we visit San Diego. It's a nice coffee shop, nothing fancy but the service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. A lot of the clientele are older adults, and I believe it's nice to have a restaurant that understands the needs of this particular community. I've seen many... More
