We stopped by with a large group of friends and they put us in the back room. I think most of us had pulled pork and it was decent. Of course we loved all the Top Gun Memorabilia and our waitress was friendly. I would...More

Went to this place on a whim because it was the 30th anniversary of the release of top gun, which part of it was filmed in this restaurant! Pretty neat and cool memorabilia but the food was just ok. Bartender Chris was a cool guy...More

If you are a Top Gun fan, this place is a must! The piano and jukebox from the film are present as well as pictures and memorabilia EVERYWHERE! We had the pulled pork sandwich and it was one of the best I've ever had.

If your a fan of top gun, this is a must. Memorabilia everywhere, the piano and jukebox from the movie are in the restaurant. Good was okay, service wasn't the best as waitresses were rude. But worth the trek

If you are a fan, then this is a must visit. The bar is full of memorabilia & the piano is in the same corner. Buzzy and popular with enthusiastic staff to match. Food average......but who cares - it's Top Gun

Top Gun was filmed here. Nothing else to say. Do yourself a favor and spend an evening here. The food is great, but it doesn't matter because this is where Meg Ryan yells,' Take me to bed or lose me forever!'

Great 2 meats combo for $18 - shareable with two people. Came here for a late night meal after a Padres game, very slow service to seat us, but our waitress was fantastic and very helpful! We were surprised it was a Top Gun filming...More

The place was interesting with Top Gun memorabilia, but that is about it. The food was horrible and the service was even worse. One waitress and she was in a horrible mood. Never checked to see what was needed or if order was correct which...More
