This was a really nice dining experience. My husband and I ate a late lunch so it was not busy. It is very attractive inside with red banquettes in several cozy rooms. The bar area looked very fun yet still elegant. I make it sound rather fancy but is very casual with tvs on mute throuhout. We shared a club... More

We frequent this hidden jewel every time we are in San Diego! Their steaks and prime ribs and salads are all done to perfection! Try the Caesar with salmon - it's my favorite and always delicious, as is the grilled salmon dinner. Local hangout and bar favorite.

Early dinner with two friends. Great local watering hole with excellent food and service. This is the place to take your out of town visitors.

Great dinner if you want a great steak and pleasant atmosphere. Staff tuned us in to the game we wanted to see while we dined.

A little busy, took some time to get our food. I didn't care for the salad that came with the meal. The kitchen was backed up due to a party of 30 I feel like they should have been prepared to manage that better though.

No Stars! Just had the worst dinner experience of my life and felt compelled to write this to warn anyone else who may be looking to eat here. I rarely write a review. I understand that at times a bad meal will get out of the kitchen but this went beyond that to the extreme! Had reservations for 10. Table... More

While looking for a place for dinner, I was going to turn around to cross the highway here. Saw the outside, said they should have the olympics on with all their TVs. Went on a Sunday night. If we could have watched the olympics, we would have been happy. But the food was amazing. I had coconut macadamia nut crusted... More

This was a place which had great food. Not the usual food for a sports bar type restaurant. The house margarita was like the ones on the beach in Nuevo Vallarta. Yummy. Service was good.
