We were here after each Padres game and had a great time. Didnt eat, but the beer was cold, the bartenders friendly and patient, and the bathrooms clean.

Always liked going to Bub's in PB, so it's cool to see it downtown next to the stadium as well. Great food, good drinks, and a fun time.

Stopped here on my way to Petco Park for Opening Day. It was a fun atmosphere and they had an excellent selection of beer. They had many local beers on tap. Great bartenders in a very busy environment.

Bub's at the Ballpark is our addition to the historical honors of downtown San Diego, East Village and PetCo Park.Embracing both history and the growing traditions of America's Finest City, Bub's was constructed using various architectural salvage from throughout the West coast, including reclaimed wood, scrap metal, and reused brick.Bub's is a place where locals and visitors alike enjoy one-of-a-kind entertainment and food. Watch the game on our vast array of plasmas and projectors or take shots on our in-house basketball court in between games of shuffleboard. Relax and sip drinks at one of the community tables or our giant circle bar. Or indulge in some of our famous Lunch Lady Tater Tots or Steaky Steakums at the old school lunch counter or outside on our expansive wooden deck.Born in 1996, "Another Man's Stupid Idea of fun" has evolved into Pacific Beach's and now downtown's go-to spot for food and fun. Git in here and enjoy, my friends!
