Best Irish coffee I have ever had! Done right....just like it's supposed to be. The right amount of Jamieson and the cream on top was ridiculous

We went mid-afternoon, about 3:30 pm. It was slow, and we should have received more attention, but our server seemed disinterested. Food was better, the Shepherd's Pie was great!

Stopped by on a Thursday and Fish n Chips was the daily special so I tried it. It was prepared to perfection! I appreciated the panko crust as opposed to traditional beer batter alone as it provided some crunch and did not get soggy from...More

We chose this bar/restaurant to watch the Notre Dame vs. Navy game in San Diego and were very pleased with the choice. Good Irish beers on tap, good Irish whiskeys available and the corned beef sandwich was piled very high. Good fries and onion rings...More

The Dubliner isn't for "fine dining" or an "exotic experience". It is a terrific place to go for an inexpensive dinner, a pint or two and a great window on the Gaslamp area. Literally - sit in the window they open and you are part...More

Another American “Irish” pub, but the food and service was very good, especially on a busy Saturday night when we had only a little time before a comedy show.

Really nice pub inside, yet we sat outside to eat as it was sunny, and it was a pleasant eating area. Friendly service. Food portions were huge, probably didn’t need starter AND main course. The food was really tasty.

The Dubliner doesn't just look like a piece of Ireland-it actually is a piece of Ireland. Before getting shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to its home in the Gaslamp Quarter, the pub was manufactured on the island by O'Sullivan Interiors. What's more, it's based on an authentic pub whose roots stretch back to the early 1700s. Guests can experience this homage by sidling up to the Irish oak bar, or toasting themselves next to the cast-iron fireplace in the Victorian Lounge. Of course, the food and drink are likewise Irish-inspired: beer-battered fish and chips, Guinness-braised beef, and an Irish lamb stew loaded with potatoes, onions, carrots, and fresh Colorado lamb. On certain nights, the pub buzzes with trivia competitions, karaoke performances, and lively sets from local bands. Join us for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Desserts! We also have a great Irish brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9am - 2pm!
