The bbq Ribs are delicious, the corn fritters too. It’s one of the favorite restaurants that we visit every time we go to San Diego. The beer variety is very good . Just the last time the tables were a little dirty with fat.

It's a barbeque joint near the water and the ferry. The BarBQ plate was uninspired in appearance. The saving part of a quick meal was the excellent service by a cheerful and helpful person. Probably it is good for families with small children.

Walking past I thought this was a fast food restaurant but it's actually table service. We both enjoyed our choice of meal and the service was good. It is in an area where there are various bars and restaurants to choose from plus some shopping.

Food was ok (nothing special) but 2 out of 3 of our kids didnt like it hence the low score, combined with the fact that it was expensive for what it was.
