I dined here for lunch. My hotel was a few doors up. The food was very good, the service was good as well. The view of the harbor and the people watching was superb.

Wonderful view on the deck. Could see NFL football & other sports on the TVs over the bar if I wanted, but also the bay. Fish tacos were excellent! Salsa was a bit too “ketchup-y” but not bad. Fantastic selection of craft beers.

We stopped in late night for some food. Easily seated with great views. Prices are moderate. We enjoyed the food and thought portions were large. Very cool inside decor. Maybe slightly touristy but if you are looking for pub food it’s the place.

Stopped in for a simple breakfast mid-week. Prices were reasonable for the location. Lots of people from the convention center on their way to their meetings. Outdoor seating offers a nice view of the Embarcadero marina. Might be a bit wet/chilly on foggy days.

Just an-eatable... No taste, undefined ingredients. There was an allergic problem, and a waiter he doesn’t care about anything . Never again.

Great food in a casual atmosphere. Great location - Harbor Drive. This is a throwback in time with current menus attractively plated. Pricing is affordable, for San Diego. Check out the VW Bus in the lobby!

I visited with a group of friends, this was a stop on the Old Town Trolley Tour. Buster’s was a perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the view while having some breakfast. The bloody mary’s were strong, and our breakfast portions were just right....More
