Don’t let the name fool you. It is not what you think. It’s a great steak restaurant with bbq pits that you cook your selected cut on. I got the New York Strip and I must say it was delicious. I enjoyed the cook it...More

Would be 5 stars but don’t believe the guideline for cooking, grills cannot sear. Probably a safety issue but don’t expect to achieve Mortons black and blue. Meat quality was very good. Otherwise a great experience and good social interaction. The sides 3 for $18...More

Interesting place. Service was very good. We tried 3 different appetizers and all were good. Baked Brussel sprouts were very good. Good variety of steaks. Large gas grill shared by all. Cook your own steak. Grill your own bread. Happy hour has half-priced appetizers.

Porter house was good, mashed potatoes and salad was good too. Downside is when someone else has no clue how to cook and burns their food. Yes you cook your own steak, so don't complain about if it's cooked just right lol

This 21 & Up “grill-your-own” steak lounge is located at the “foot” of San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp Quarter. This is a friendly, casual alternative to expensive, stuffy steak houses.
