We went here with 30 people as a company dinner. WAS a blast, service was ok, but loved that we cooked our own steaks. All of us had a great time doing this together. Made memories, friends and had great food. Try the Rabbit.

It's a cook your own steak place. I know that's not for everyone but I think it's a wonderful place. I've been there several times and never been disappointed. The quality of the food is top-notch. And I actually love the idea of cooking my own steak. The grills are excellent and the sides and additions are perfect. I always... More

I've been to the Gaslamp many times and never went here because I thought it was a strip club and didn't want to spend a ton of money! But this time, I was in town for Comic-con, and I was eating at a bunch of other restaurants that were just OK, but I was REALLY hungry and I wanted a... More

Really enjoyed this place! Had no idea what the theme was til we asked to see the menu before walking in. The cook your own steak novelty was very cool. I liked that everything cooked so quickly, and that there were a ton of seasonings to try. The sides were awesome. I loved the creamed spinach. Asparagus and potatoes au... More

Group of 4, with some drinks averaged $50 per person. Fun to grill your own steak. We didn't have the right timing for the sides (our fault) but service was efficient and fast.

The first night of five in San Diego we found this place and went in for a glass of wine in the bar. Great bar, fantastic staff and good music. We came back the day after and decided to have dinner, we found the concept with preparing the steak yourself at the grill fun and it made the experience even... More

Stopped here with some business associates before taking a late night flight. I had a shrimp cocktail and a salad. Others had steaks and they grilled the steaks themselves. We sat outside and enjoyed the sites. Our waitress was efficient and friendly and they didn't rush us even though there were people waiting for tables.

Don't pass up this joint just for its namesake when you walk up and down 5th Avenue, looking for a place to eat. If you are getting tired of spending a fortune on not-so-interesting food, and also a meatlover, this is the right place for you! You simpily order your meat of choice and the sides, and grill it yourself... More

Don't let the name fool you. This is a cook-your-own steak restaurant! We had the ribeye and it was amazing! Comes with a family style salad, but all other sides are a la carte.

Were here for a business trip. Neat old fashioned lounge decor, with some classic artwork depicting the namesake workers. However, it's just a nice steak place with a twist - you cook your own steaks. They were quite excellent, with very good sides and service. If you're a business traveler, no worries. The unusual name displays innocuously on a receipt.

This 21 & Up “grill-your-own” steak lounge is located at the “foot” of San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp Quarter. This is a friendly, casual alternative to expensive, stuffy steak houses.
