Excellent recommendations, great conversations, incredibly personable and attentive. The BBQ is delicious. I recommend the pulled pork sandwich (I got it minus the bun). Jeanne will pick a wine for you and tell you great stories. Christopher makes me hopeful that the next generation is going to do so much better in life than their predecessors did!

We had a wonderful server at this restaurant for breakfast named Angelica, she made our day happier! We attended a conference here and she just complimented the theme of "one love"!

Felt like I was in a old golf course clubhouse. Food looked great but really had no flavor. Good selection of local beers on tap but when I got my bill, $8.00/beer. Whaaaaat?????? If I had known that, I'd pass on this place

If you are hungry this is not the place. Service was slow and the foods was bland at best and only warm at best. Not good when you have to stop someone to place an order after sittinng for 20 minutes. Then we had to falg down the server again to even pay the bill.

Thanks to Charlie's for providing a good pub menu when you're stuck amidst hotel rennovations. Try the chicken wings.

A good place to gather with friends, colleagues, etc... Service is very good. Waiters are very competent. Food is excellent. Extremely tasty wings! Ribs are good too. You can seat outside and enjoy San Diego's mild climate. Prices are OK. Variety of beers is OK for that part of the world.

Dropped in here for dinner whilst staying on the hotel circle, huge portions for very reasonable prices, my partner and I had a burger and a rack of ribs with a mountain of fries each. Drinks also very cheap. Would definitely come back in if we are in the area again.

Ate here during our stay at Town and Country, nice little sports bar barbecue. Had the barbecue chicken and sweet potato fries. It was quiet tasty. Very good portion sizes for the money.
