Many choices, servers are very friendly, portion is good, price is right. The baby ribs and Ceaser salad are my favorite. The BBQ chicken pizza is awesome, we usually order to go when it has promotion deals. They also make some very tasty sweets and deserts on the other side. It's a very popular place for locals, becasue the service... More

Last night my hot pastrami with a side of potato salad was terrific.The service is consistently good. Our server, Debbie, last night... More

We stopped for a quick brunch and were delighted with a very full menu of many deli and breakfast options. I had a combo plate with eggs, bacon and potatoes. We loved the waitress and she gave us great service. Food was hot, personally prepared and delicious. Brought some famous rye bread home. Bathroom was immaculate. Definitely will return.

We should have tried a seafood restaurant--it looks like there are quite a few in Solana Beach. We were FORCED to eat here--after spending the day at the SD Zoo there was no way we were going to sit in traffic back to LA so we came here. Tiny sandwich. Delicious corned beef, yes. But tiny. Microscopic. Mini. I had... More

My husband and I had eaten here several years ago and loved the dill pickles because they were mild and not as bold as they can be. We decided to go back but, were not as impressed this time. The waiters were nice and the service was good but, the food was not as good as before. The pickles had... More

This is a great place to eat!!! The menu is extensive, and they serve breakfast all day long. The sandwiches are huge, and I had the biggest burger I have ever had in my life! The Banana pudding is to die for! I wish they had one in northern California!
