Delish lunch selection of small plates, salads, and sandwiches. Had the fried chicken sando, perfectly crunchy and well seasoned. Added the duck fat fries, which was a really great choice. Service was spotty, but to be fair, I was there between the lunch and dinner...More

My friends and I were able to experience here for Sunday’s brunch! The food was okay, but one particular item (Sticky Bun) was really good. We also enjoyed their bottomless Mimosas. Nice place and atmosphere.

Had a nice night out with friends, love the atmosphere. Shrimp and grits were not the most flavorful I’ve had, biscuits were yummy. Dessert was awesome!

We were disappointed with the food but the setting and service were great. Our daughter ordered a piece of meat that had more fat than meat. Prices were high given the quality of the menu and food preparation. Luckily, we loved the group we were...More

We had reservations and were excited to have a delicious brunch with friends. The server was friendly but something was off. Those that put in drink orders immediately got their mimosas and those that ordered later waited at least 20 min for drinks. Then we...More

Located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter of Downtown San Diego, Searsucker is a nationally recognized social dining concept that encourages guests to come early, and stay late. Menus are both serious and fun, with creative twists on New American Classics for Weekend Brunch, Weekday Lunch, Dinner and Happy Hour. Dishes range from shared plates and small bites ideal for the whole table, to farm and ocean dishes that you’ll want to keep all to yourself. Inspired by the simplicity, relaxed and feel-good vibe of the seersucker fabric, Searsucker offers a space that invites patrons to relax and enjoy. The airy design features a glass enclosed kitchen, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a lively bar area. Patrons can watch the action, chat without boundaries and feel as if they’re at a friend’s dinner party rather than a restaurant--so come early, and stay late!
