“Not what it used to be...”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Yes, I know this is a chain... which has become completely evident in the last ten years. Just visited this weekend and while I love the casual ambiance and sarcastic service... the value of food/drink has gone into the toilet. (speaking of toilets, the bathrooms could use a cleaning more than once a year).

We came here, as we remembered it to be a fun place to go for some good price positive drinking with a larger group. It took roughly 20 minutes for someone to actually acknowledge us which was annoying but hey its Dicks. We ordered drinks and a round of kamikaze shots. The drinks (except for the bottle of Coors Light my husband ordered) were totally watered down and terrible. To top things off - the 6 kamikaze shots were $60! Served up in little branded thimbles and made with what tasted like grain alcohol... possibly moonshine from the hills of West Virginia. Total rip-off.

The food... well we ordered some appetizers and the food was mediocre at best - but actually better than the drinks. This joint has really changed... or maybe I was too loaded the last time I was here to notice?

So in summary - drinks sucked, food okay, service okay (still funny as hell) and ambiance cool and funky.

“Fun Fun Fun”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The place is in the middle of the fun district of SD, it is a nice open air restaurant (also can stay inside), the food is nothing special, but the staff, live music make the most of it. If you want to have a nice and honest fun evening pass by.
Do not expect french cuisine,

“Good food, Funny atmosphere”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Stayed in San Diego in April 2014 and had a great couple of meals at Dicks Last Resort, The first night I had the fish and chips which was very good and had a rather generous portion too! The second night I had the Catfish which was very good nice and golden brown and perfectly fried with veggies on the side. They have great beer on tap and make a great bloody mary too! Go for the Big A*s beer cause you get to take the Bigg A*s Glass home with you!
