Cool little bar with great drinks. Not quite as crazy as the other bars so you can actually get service in a quieter environment. Not the place to go if you're seeking a party, but a great place to hang out and grab a drink.

Rendezvoused with a "Match.com" date at the bar and thought if we liked each other we would proceed to the restaurant part of Churchill's.. As things turned out, it is the ideal place for such a mission. The bartenders are super experienced and professional and exactly what you want to see in a beer garden. I didn't order any food...

We had not visited for a while but were shocked by the state of the place. We sat in a booth with seats that were torn in great gaping holes with the stuffing coming out! I noticed the other booth seats were the same and as I looked across the room, I saw that the chairs at tables were also... More

If you are looking for atmosphere, it is probably not the best choice, but if you are looking for great (Authentic English Style) Fish & Chips, this is the place. Service was excellent and prices reasonable.

Love coming to Churchills. This visit was for our traditional Christmas Eve cocktail. Met friends just to hang out and relax and had a great time as usual. Beer and whiskey lists are impressive and their food does not disappoint. Highly recommend if you are anywhere close.

As much as I would like to give a good review of Churchills, I have been several times, each hoping it would be better. Sadly, the food is not worth the price and the service is not even good.

This place was recommended by a "local" and was she right on the money! She recommended the fish and chips which I had and it was some of the best I've ever eaten. The fish practically covered the dinner placate and was cooked to perfection. The children s were a tools between Boardwalk Fries and Five Guys Fries, which I... More

We first visited Churchill's when some acquaintances said: "The best place in town to get burgers is Churchill's." Huh, we thought. But we went, anyways. In short...they were right! And the onion rings, jalapeño poppers, bangers and mash and beer are first rate as well! I would rate this a "must try"! Hope you enjoy it as much as we... More

Some friends of our family hold a London new year party at Churchill's each 12/31 for the past few years. The beer selection is worthy of San Diego craft beer culture and with so many local breweries nearby they have good local connections to great beer. But the food is excellent as well, I always get the fish and chips... More
