My colleagues and I attended a conference of about 16,000 attendees in July. Everyone is dismissed for lunch at the same time the first day, resulting in a sea of humanity descending on the Gaslamp Quarter across from the convention center.
My colleagues and I opted instead to walk over to the Hilton Bayfront and have lunch at the Fox Sports Grill. There was a small line ahead of us, but we were seated at an outside table within 10 minutes.
The hostess was not particular friendly (somewhat understandable due to the group ahead of us hassling her over their policy of not seating incomplete parties). Our waiter was very pleasant, however.
Our group enjoyed a variety of offerings, including burgers, burrito, and a very large flatbread. I personally had the burger with avocado and bacon, which was juicy and generously topped.
Everyone enjoyed their meals, and still had plenty of time before heading back to the conference.
We all agreed we would eat there again, and several in our party did so several times throughout the week.
It's a great, convenient location with good food when you're not up for joining the herd in the Gaslamp Quarter.
