“Not as good as hoped”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

5 went for dinner including three kids. Portions were not large by US standards and steak was just okay. When I visit the US I expect great steaks and this just didn't live up to it. To be fair, there was nothing wrong with the meal but it didn't ring any bells as being special or really good. so not great value for the price.

“Can't rave highly enough!!!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

For a place that's just off the freeway and doesnt look all that special on the inside or outside, the food and service this place pumps out is simply to die for. Established in the 1970's and not decorated since I feel, the décor and atmosphere could definitely do with a overhaul and few dollars pumping into it, but the service was the best we had in San Diego and the food simply breathtaking. Meat eaters in San Diego, get your hunt on and find Hunters!!!!

“Melt-in-your-mouth filets”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We thought the Hunter had the best steaks we had eaten in sometime. Three of us had the "smaller" cut of filet and found we couldn't finish them. My father had a sirloin and thought his steak was very tender, until he tried the filet. It was so tender and delicious. Loved the au gratin potatoes. The baked potatoes and side vegetables were also delicious. Loved the tableside salad bar. This is definitely our return to steakhouse when we return to San Diego.

“Great Steak Meal!!! Don't look anywhere else!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were in San Diego for 5 nights with our 3 teenage kids and wanted a steak meal. We booked Hunters and ordered 3 Filet Mignon and 1 Porterhouse to share!! The food was amazing, the steaks were perfect and the appetizers (the Hunter Trio and the Potato Skins were to die for!!!). We enjoyed our meal so much, the kids asked to go again so on our last night, we booked Hunters again and did it all again!!! The great thing about Hunters is that the food is wonderful and the price is very reasonable compared to all the ritzy places where steaks cost more than $40!! The service was also very very good, the waitresses on both evenings were very hospitable and knew the answers to our questions. We highly recommend for a steak meal in San Diego!!

“Great place for steak”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We stayed in San Diego for two nights, and the restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel's staff on the first night. It has a quite and nice atmosphere. We ordered a split course - for the price of 7$ the main course is split, and we each got our own salad and side. The garlic mashed potatos were amazing and so was the steak- tender and juicy.
We loved it so much thta we returned there the follwoing night for another lovely dinner.
We recommend the mud pie for dessert :)
