Pub

“While technically not a brewery, they have the best selection of beer in a city famous for craft beer. Unique, fun, and not stuck up. Can get crowded, but worth the energy. Serves bar food, but don’t show up hungry. ”

Burger Joint

“My favorite burger in San Diego. Located in the Pacific beach / Mission bay area near sea world its something you can tie into a beach day plan. All american classic, its a no frills pub that only serves booze burgers and fries. The wait to get a table (first come first serve) can be long on certain days or times of the day but its worth it. ”

Seafood Restaurant

“Ocean side seafood restaurant, worth the price! Best scallops in San Diego. Bring beach attire and swim in the ocean before or after your meal. More affordable during lunch or mid-day happy hour, but we love their dinner menu.”

New American Restaurant

“This is one of my favorite restaurants. I actually prefer this Pacific Beach location but Goldfinch is great too. Dog friendly patio dining or indoor dining, amazing food, terrific bar, street parking with occasional valet service. Brunch EVERY day til 3, then happy hour... dinner... late night happy hour... EVERY day! This does not mean cheap, btw, but it's so worth it!”
