Felt like sitting in a pub in Canada; big fire pit surrounded by Muskoka chairs!!!! Kool tequila cocktails served in copper mugs. Great vibe.

Once Hennesseys was in Pacific Beach. Back then reaonably priced food and drinks in a friendly beach scene atmosphere. Then came corporate buyouts and an ill advised relocation to La Jolla and Vista. Now marginal service and a lousy menu. And even worse food. Flew to San Diego in hopes of a wonderful reunion with Hennesseys. A drastic disappointment. It looks like another outfit opened in Hennesseys old location. That is my next stop.

We found this location while wondering the streets in La Jolla. It looked like a nice place for a nice dinner for a birthday (which we were looking for).

The staff was very friendly and gave you plenty of time to decide. They were knowledgeable about the menu items.

With drinks for 3 of the adults, and 5 entrees (total of 4 adults / 2 kids) our meal came to $132. Kind of pricey but it was good food.

The other thing we liked about this place was the variety on the menu. I'm not a fish person and that was difficult to get away from in La Jolla.

The seating was really comfy too. They had a neat round area to sit at in front with beach like chairs. Our kids were mezmerized by that alone.

We stopped in because we were thirsty from walking around the cove and ended up having some fried calamari and nachos. They hit the spot and the server was attentive. They also had live music which was enjoyable to listen to.
