Went here for breakfast. Better come hungry! Potatoes were wonderful, as were the omelettes. Everyone we saw left food on their plates. Yum!

It was really hard to narrow down the huge menu, but you cannot go wrong with the chicken and waffles. Fresh and homemade greatness!!! We also had the Cuban sandwich, which was one of the best found out west. Service was fast and super friendly....More

I have eaten at Brian's 24 on a few occasions, each visit was as good as the first. The breakfast is good and a bargain for the amount of food you get on your plate. I would highly recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

Serving portions were huge. Food of good quality. Service fast, albiet, less than warm and welcoming. Hollandaise(sp?) poor. Still I would go back. Good value and good food.

On behalf of our family and staff, we welcome you to Brian's 24! We know you have a lot of choices when deciding where to eat and we're so glad that you chose our restaurant. Aside from the big bar and even bigger food, our place has a story…all great places have a story.This story starts in 2008 when a father (Steve) and a son (Brian) began a drive around the Gaslamp Quarter in search of their next family business venture. Being San Diego natives, Steve and Brian knew exactly what Downtown was missing, an all-hours restaurant where you could get good comfort food any time, day or night. Having come from a family of foodies and restaurateurs, and with Brian himself having spent time in the restaurant industry in Las Vegas, both Steve and Brian were ready for something fun, exciting and in the heart of their hometown. From the moment they stepped in to the restaurant off the lobby of the historic St. James Hotel, they knew they had found the spot. With its grand, hand-crafted mahogany bar (obtained from actress Joan Crawford's estate), beautiful crystal chandelier and tin ceiling, the place really had a warm feeling and a great personality. Fast-forward to today, and the family business is still going strong. After Steve's passing in 2010, the business now has more family members sharing in this labor of love, with Ida (mom), Andrea and Robin (two of Brian's four sisters) standing next to Brian at the helm.Our mission is simple - family, comfort food and anything you want, any time you want it.
