Had a late lunch at the bar. Tables had a 30 minute wait at 130p on a Thursday. Service was prompt and friendly. Wings and salads hit the spot.

I highly recommend the Stinky Burger. It's not on the menu anymore but they'll make it if you ask nicely. If you can sit at the bar or in Laurels section. She's the best bartender and server you could imagine!

Approximately a 25 minute wait on a Friday, but it was worth it. Huge tasty burgers and plenty of sides to choose from. Several taps and bottle selections for beer. I didn't care for the Wasabi sauce that came on the side for the fried zucchini, but hey, that was a personal choice. Service was excellent though and the drinks... More

This wasn't our first choice but it had a shorter wait. The menu is not extensive but if you are looking for a place to have burgers or fish tacos and a local San Diego brew this is a good choice. I gave this place high marks for service in part because the waiter was able to produce separate checks... More

Turned up for a late lunch - we were hungry. We were seated quickly and had very attentive service throughout our visit. Had the shrimp tacos - excellent, followed by burgers and fish and chips. Huge portions of very tasty food. Felt absolutely 'stuffed'

Lots of tvs for game day. Good beer selection of local craft beers. Burgers are hige. Only 3 stars bc while the burgers were big they were just ok on flavor. Pros: Lots of tables and tvs... We had no wait as opposed to the 75 min wait at places right down the street. Good staff. Good value for Coronado.... More

Nothing wrong with this place at all. I had a breakfast burger that was mediocre with some tots. The beers were cold and service prompt. They had plenty of TV's up showing NFL games so overall it was a quick, fine experience. Hopefully some of the other burgers on the menu are better than the one I had!

We really enjoyed our visit even though the service was really slow...so don't go if you're in a hurry. That being said, when we finally got our drinks, they were right and when the food finally got to us, it was really good. There are lots of TVs that can be seen from everywhere and the atmosphere is great.

Really great place, lively atmosphere about 20 screens on sports. Football, hockey. Ordered there famous burger. I've eaten a lot of burgers in my life and I must say this was the best. Drink glasses are very generous and they keep them full. Extra sauce no problem just ask. Friendly efficient staff.

Thank Sally G
