I had visited this restaurant a year ago just to see the inside. This year I decided to go back and try the food because they serve authentic Irish food. Passing by, I looked at the menu outside, and I decided I wanted one of the breakfast items. The menu stated that breakfast was served all day, so I thought I had a plan. When I arrived for dinner, the bartender told me that I had looked at the lunch menu earlier. She said they don't usually offer breakfast in the evening. I told her that I had already decided on a specific breakfast entree, so she asked the kitchen if they could prepare it. It was a slow time, so they agreed to make it. It was very good. I really enjoyed the music as well. They were playing videos on the TV. I wasn't paying attention to see if it was all music from the UK, but it was entertaining.

This is definitley an Irish pub feel, being a dark, cozy bar. The music overhead was fun. The service was pretty slow, but the food we all ordered was tasty. The water glasses are small and I drink a lot of water, but the waitress couldn't keep my glass filled quickly enough. The prices are about $12-16 for an entree.

We landed in San Diego and went out to "explore" and came upon this place in the Gaslight District. Friendly, energetic place. Could have done without the live music, but to each his own. Nice selection of authentic Irish food as well as pub fare. Nice selection of brews and liquor from Ireland. Wouldn't hesitate to return if I had the chance.

This is probably the best Irish pub in San Diego. The inside is very rustic with many items imported from Ireland. The menu is chock full of authentic Irish fare, my personal favorite is the bangers and champ, but my wife favors the Guinness beef boxty. They have Smithwicks on tap as well. Great place to grab dinner before a Padres game or to hang out afterwards. Also good for lunch, and unlike a lot of Gaslamp bars, they have a smoking patio that you can take your drink onto. This place is a not miss.
