We were ecstatic to find our favorite Authentic Irish draught Beer here at this pub in San Diego. The interior was brought from Ireland so it's also Authentic!!! Our server had a beautiful Irish accent and was very nice!! We also ate dinner and many items on the menu reminded me of our time in Dublin. A fabulous find!!!

We stopped here to sit on the patio and people watch after our first day of Comic Con. The service was great and the beer was cold. Great atmosphere inside as well! I had the corn beef sandwich. It was perfect.

Bar located in busy part of Gas Lamp District. Attractive place. They sell food from Ireland and have Irish and other beers. My wife had a Guinness and I had an IPA and we shared their version of mac and cheese. Quite tasty- Good service. One of many good choices in this area.

We arrived early for the Saturday night music. Our server, Fiona was super friendly and attentive. We had the Irish sampler for dinner. A great option to try a variety of Irish dishes. And it was very good! Well done on the atmosphere, and the music was fantastic. Did I mention that the bartenders know how to pour a Guiness... More

The atmosphere makes you feel like you're in Ireland, that part was really cool. We really liked the onion rings, the rest of the food was average.

Stopped off for a drink, with my brother, ended up staying for food, that was so freaking tasty, I WILL RETURN. Laura was behind the bar, totally cool chick. She is a mover and shaker, gets drinks right. Ordered the banger burger, which was so good.

Before I could get to the restaurant on a Friday evening in downtown San Diego, I found that parking is a REAL challenge - ! Ended up at Horton Plaza at a cost of $10 upon exit. But....., The Field is no frills, good service and very casual. We celebrated a birthday on the second level and found the talented... More

One of my must-visit places whenever I'm in town. Their food is really good and their staff is so friendly and engaging. The place is small and cozy and they have live music and traditional Irish dancing. Their Guinness is the best around!

Really super beer - even Black & Tan with Guinness and Kilkenny; friendly efficient Irish service; Shepherd's Pie with Lamb - surprisingly good. As an extra live music on a Friday evening. A treat not to be missed.

Excellent, attentive service with outstanding food. We chose this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor ratings, and it was so good! We took the train from Oceanside, walked around the Gas Lamp area, went into the Museum and then stopped for lunch. The Irish coffee was wonderful and only $4! We ordered an appetizer combo and beer, and there was... More
