Irish food is famous for potato lovers and this place will not disappoint in this regard, overall the food is OK. The service OK. Nice Irish pub decor. Great location in the middle of the gaslamp district. Many TV showing sports.

Located midblock on 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp district of downtown San Diego, the Field “Authentic” Irish pub is a genuine Irish experience. Everything, the floors, the walls, the bar, the light fixtures, the waiters, and barmaids are from Ireland. This Irish mecca for football, soccer and rugby is small, crowded, dark, loud and wonderful. We like to sit in... More

Went here before the Cubs game to have some lunch/beers...I ordered the corned beef sandwich and my husband had the fish n chips...my sandwich was good...but after trying the fish n chips I realized I ordered wrong..haha. The beer was very cold and the service excellent. Might I add, the restrooms were very nice and clean..that's always a plus.

Met some friends here for a drink. My daughter had apple juice ... All appeared ok but then noticed some kind of slug or sludge or *something* totally gross that had floated to the top of the glass and was hanging over the edge - yuk! The managers' response was interesting to say the least, needless to say I wasn't... More

We visited The Field twice during our stay in San Diego, both times for drinks and on both occasions it was distinctly average. Toilets need upgrading too
