Every once in a while it's fun to come into this little "dive joint" which has been in existence since 1950. For San Diego, that's ancient. The quality of their meats is very good. They have a full bar. I asked for a lemon drop...More

When you walk in to Turf, head to the Chloe or Stacey for a margarita or a French 75. They squeeze limes to order per drink. If you come in past 10, you see other chefs in the industry in after work for a cocktail...More

The venerable Turf Supper Club is a regular lunch spot favorite of mine. Not many grill-your-own places are open for weekday lunch—and the "Turf Club" is only open Fridays (and weekend)—so it's a nice change of pace. The wait staff is very nice and like...More

I love this place. I go here regularly and I really love their steaks. I highly recommend their salad with ranch and Italian dressing!

This is another one of those local faves. I was fortunate enough to try out this establishment for my birthday! Wow it's really nostalgic with everything untouched from the late 1960's (I think). It's a very small and cozy place, with small bar and some...More

We were with a couple who raved about this place. They love the unique atmosphere of cooking your own meat. I found it to be dark, uninviting and not fun. I have nothing against tattoos, but from what I saw every employee was covered with...More

If going out to dinner at a very local place grabs you, this might very well be it. Tourists would never find it on their own; you have to know about it. The Turf Supper Club is known for their steaks, which you cook yourself...More

Great place to grab a drink and forget about the rat race for just a moment. The drinks are good and I hear the steaks are too. Love the bartender Abby and the atmosphere is just great to relax.
