This place is a ton of fun! They ring the bell at sundown, as they should to honor the sun's beautiful setting and God's awesome artwork every night! Food was ok to good. Service was a bit off. But the view is BEAUTIFUL!

This is a great ocean side location, plenty of parking, nice shops and the beach. There is a downstairs pub and upstairs dining. Service was friendly though not quick. You can get a view of the ocean from sitting just about anywhere. Lots of choices...More

Best view in Ocean Beach. The bar is great. There is a back area of the restaurant that would probably be good for kids. Can get loud and crowded out near the windows. When I was there there were free shots at sunset!

Firstly Shane is amazing, great personality, and great teeth! I had the Eggs & Enchiladas, and it was amazing. My best friend had a great meal too. All I can say is go, go now, and enjoy yourself.

Excellent variety of cuisine to choose from. Reputation for great burger menu but underrated for its seafood and guest beer listing. Order the pescadero trio platter. It is full of marinated ahi tuna, a delicious shrimp aguachile and fish ceviche to share. Leave room for...More

While this place has a great location overlooking the beach, I was disappointed with the food. I had the hangar steak, which was cooked well but had next to no taste. The accompanying veggies were mediocre and some were over cooked as well. I really...More
