This was a good meal, just not a great one. Great location in Coronado closer to the bay side. Has a bit of outdoor seating. My husband got a burger and I had their Mandarin Chicken Salad. Both were tasty and service was good.

Let's start with the pluses; nice bar décor, big screen (huge) TV, and a great variety of very cold beer! That being said order your Hamburger cooked one from where you usually go, and be forewarned the fries could be served cold. This is a very busy restaurant/bar and timing of arrival and departure are probably quite important. Parking isn't... More

One of those places where the burgers are almost too big to eat. Even so, my burger was very good and there were tater tots on the side. (Are tater tots a San Diego thing??) They could stand to do something about the flies that were buzzing about.

I had one free day after some business in San Diego ... so, I took the ferry across the bay and stumbled upon this restaurant. It was an amazing place. The staff was wonderful and very attentive ... plus, the TVs scattered throughout the place kept a person looking around at various baseball games. To say the least, I was... More

We came here for dinner when we visited Coronado. The food was great, we really enjoyed the burgers and sides, atmosphere was spot on. Our waiter seemed great but ran into a few issues. I ordered a drink he told me was popular, well I hated it. I think it was a form of a beer and bloody Mary mixed.... More

Coronado Island is full of great places, Coronado Brewing company was full so we accidentally went to Nicky Rottens, which was smart move. The food was great, service was terrific, and atmosphere fun.

Good food in very big portions, well cooked and very prompt. The staff are busy and yet still attentive. We dined during Comic Con when the Coronado eateries are flat out and they still managed a smile and maintained quality. This is an open area restaurant so the acoustics are a bit hard when someone has a crying child, or... More

Terrible experience! Danny, our server, was awful. Did not pay attention to us the whole night except when we wanted our check, but yet he had time to visit all the tables around us and speak to them. Very rude! Even when we complained to the young woman, we received no apology or no visit from a manager! Moreover, food... More
