We came for dinner and enjoyed the food. I had the Chicken Waldorf salad which was delicious and contained a great mixture of things. My husband had bourbon glazed salmon which was very good and my daughter enjoyed the cheeseburger. We shared a cheesecake which was very good. I would eat at one of these restaurants again whenever we are... More

We went for a later night dinner and was very happy to find that one of my favorite Gaslamp Micro-Breweries Brewpub (I think the first in Gaslamp ? In 1986 ? ) which had moved to LaJolla was alive and improved ! Austen was our server and was one of the best personable servers we have had experienced this past... More

Conveniently located almost across the street from the Sheraton. Also very accommodating to those with pets. We were seated on the pet friendly patio and the staff was very understanding and helpful. The beer was very good and so were the nachos. I know it's a national chain, but the beer is still brewed on site. In a land of... More

We had a burger and a beer and really enjoyed it. The place has a fun atmosphere. People were doing a "drink and draw" event in the restaurant area and having a great time. Food was standard pub grub but very good. Very good attentive service. We sat outside and there was live music. The hostess and staff kept warning... More

We went here for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised by how great the pizza was! I highly recommend the Italian. My 9 year old had the mac n cheese and raved about it. It has a nice ambiance and if your a beer drinker, you will enjoy this place

We arrived at the Sheraton late in the evening. Staff member Joey recommend Rock bottom. It was very lively. Local college students hangout. The appeal is the quality beer that's brewed. We don't engage in adult beverages, but to each his own. The food was very good. Good portion sizes, prices were affordable. Received complimentary dessert for my wife. happened... More
