Stopped for happy hour. Three very delicious short rib sliders, and a nice glass of house red. Worked as a full meal for me. A perfect start to a week in San Diego. Sat outside and enjoyed the people watching.

Had a charcuterie, pear/gorgonzola salad and a kobe burger that was dry and overcooked. Could have been my fault for ordering it well done. Nonetheless, this is a decent restaurant in the Gaslamp with OK service.

Don't go for the food, but for the ambiance and visiting with friends. I think if you drank beer or wine you would enjoy more, but since I don't drink either. Also asked for bread with my salad and never got.

The food was above average. It's a fun and lively place and a great location. Right in the heart of the Gaslamp. The drinks were good, this is a good place to meet up with friends and hangout.

Go there for the beer. Not for the food! Great Californian IPA & stout. Worst burger ever! Dry and burned. I felt almost sorry for the chef. The guy doesn't know what he was doing!
