Stopped in on Sunday afternoon while at a conference. We had a party of 8. It wasn't that busy but there was only wait person for the whole place. The big screens and football are great. Service was slow for drinks and food. Had a glass that had lipstick stain. It was replaced but totally turned us off based on... More

I went to Jolt n Joe's while I was on a business trip. So much fun, they had pool tables and ping pong tables.

I needed a quick fix during a short lunch break while attending a conference and decided a big, juicy burger at a pub was what I needed. Told the waitress I didn't have much time and they had a sizeable burger ready in about 5-10mins and it was delicious. The look of the place is nothing special but I really... More

A colleague and I ate at this restaurant on a Tuesday at lunch time. We waited over 40 minutes for our food. When the food arrived, the burger was overcooked and unseasoned and the fries were soggy. It was evident that the food was coming out in the exact order it was placed and that there wasn't enough support in... More

DONT GO! Over charged on my drink..bill came to 12 dollars for one drink and was charged 14.40 onto my account. When I called the manager he had showed no effort to try and reimburse, all he said was "he would talk to his credit card company" ...I am not sure the credit card company is the one to blame

I hear this bar down the street from my apartment in the Gaslamp all the time. I always think there is a melee going on, because of the ruckus that gets channeled down the street through the canyon of concrete. I told myself it was the place I would never set foot in, now that I am set in my... More

Huge place located on the corner of 4th and J in the heart of the gaslamp. They have pool tables and also a lot of big screen tvs. Its a pretty good place to go to watch the games. They played about 5 different NFL games at the same time on sunday.

Our first day in San Diego found us exploring the gas lamp district. After doing some shopping we decided on jolt n joes for a light lunch. The menu was extensive but wanting to eat light we went with a side salad and chicken quesadilla's and that was the perfect choice. We shared the quesadillas which was big and came... More

2 story bar. We came for the closed Super Bowl party. Service was pretty good & food was ok. Overall, not sure if they don't want to turn in the AC but it was hot & stuffy. Not that much seating & we were hoping for more tv screens. Average bar.
