We really like this place and have been more than once. The atmosphere is busy and fun. Our server was outstanding. The food and wine we had were really good. It's a great place to spend an evening and we highly recommend it.

This is a huge tourist trap, don't waste your time or money on this place. The food is mediocre and overpriced.

With so many choices, we made a mistake picking Searsucker. Walking the Gaslamp in the afternoon we poked our heads in and it looked nice, good menu so we made a reservation. Dinner time and we received initial prompt service but my wife felt it...More

Hello Skipspear, It all depends on what you like to eat! Do you like seafood, meat etc?
