Have dined here twice, food and service were very good on both occasions. Most resent visit we had the Lobster Salad, Turkey Burger, Beignets and a birthday dessert. Only negatives on both visits, the restrooms were dirty and need to be maintained more often.

This old Dennys made hipster cool and fun has outstanding food and service. The beef brisket sandwich is over-the-top fantastic. Really. It's $18 which is New York expensive but it is really great. You can't go wrong here but figure $50 for two for lunch.

We ordered appetizers twice because the first round was so delicious. Everything we tried we really enjoyed and hope to go back next time we are in San Diego!
