Went in and had a beer. Looks like it would be a fun place to just hang out and enjoy the scenery and have a cold one. Didn't get a chance to try the food.

I stopped in here with a group of 5 before heading to a ballgame at Petco Park, which is a short walk away. What a cool spot, loaded with history. Great beer selection, good bartenders, great vibe. This is a fun place to hang out,...More

We came here for food before the padres game. We were not disappointed. It looks like a one man show in the kitchen, but the food did not disappoint...The chicken Burrito was very good. The only issue is he has not learned to roll it...More

I was hoping for it to be more of a true Dive bar but it was just ok. The patio was nice and the drink special were o.k. but we ended up only going once.

This place has a nice dive bar feel and very friendly service and clientele. Good jukebox. Excellent street tacos. My daughter and I enjoyed it!

The chicken wrap was excellent, compared with other pub food. Chips are ok. Drinks are average. However, very noisy inside and only bar style table outside. Not ideal when wanting to chat with friends.

"Oldest bar in San Diego". Casual. Very casual. Get your strong drink and inexpensive. Loyal San Diegans, whether dressed in scruffy jeans or their Saturday best will always give this establishment the respect it deserves.

This is the best spot to end the night. The price is right. The place is cool. The bartenders are normal people .
