Food Good, Service Just Okay

The food here was very good, but also very expensive. The service was just okay. We had to go to the next empty table to get silverware. All this and the place was barely empty.

This is a longtime San Diego hangout, looking out at Mission Bay. A good time to go is on afternoons when they have live music on the outside patio. The drinks and good are little pricey, but the ambience and the setting are very nice.

We really enjoy our fun bar on Mission Bay. We have traveled to it via car, bike and Boat! The food is good, especially the Ahi tortilla stack, they serve good beer, and while sometimes the service is slow, it is still an enjoyable evening because the location is so gorgeous.

This little course is actually an 18 hole putting course and has no resemblance to miniature golf. It is all on natural grass and winds its way through the property amidst flowers, banana trees, hibiscus, birds of paradise and all types of tropical plants. it is set up and maintained well. I guarantee you'll want to play it more than... More

What a great time! We enjoyed a lunch/brunch on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The venue offers live music from 12-4 and has a dance floor to complete the experience. The food is excellent, especially the Cuban sandwich (pulled pork) and both the regular and sweet potato fries!

We were at Paradise Point for a conference in June. We had great service on a Saturday for lunch. Our table was right by the water with an incredible view! The menu is on the small side, but there was something to make everyone happy. Two of us couldn't choose between two of the options and decided to split both... More

Nice location but the service was not that great but the food was good but not great either. If you stuck on the island hotel, that looks like it was built during WW2 then try it
