  • "This was our 2nd visit to Dicks, and it will be our last. I realize it was a busy night, but our party of 3 was sandwiched in between 3 large groups. I think we were the last priority. Part of the fun of Dicks is the fun service, banter with the server. We revieved none of that.. Food was ok,, and it was cold and took forever. Not for us."

  • "Fun for our group but the food was horrible! No prices on the drink menu so difficult to budget. Probably would not return."

  • "My new husband and I are from out of town, and we were looking for a suitable restaurant to take our soon-to-be joined families for dinner. Dick's was the PERFECT setting to have the families sit together, laugh and enjoy being silly. We had multiple small children with us as well, and they had so much fun being in a different restaurant environment. They could laugh, have fun and be silly....very unlike most restaurants they have been to. Our large group had a great time and will be talking about this for years to come!!"

  • "every time I and my husband eat out Dicks and one other place is all we go because we enjoy the people, the service, the bands. The last time we went was for his birthday party of sorts and not only did I not spend as much as I had saved for the night but the server was worried about how I would get home with a very sweet drunk husband. I totally love going to Dicks and will go again maybe with more people next time."

  • "The type of service they provide might be called a "gimmick" by some but regardless of their special brand of "service" the food is very, very good!"

  • "Super fun and great for birthday occasions. Loved the sarcasm of the waiters. Awesome environment and cool ideas."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This is a unique, upbeat and fun restaurant. The food is ok, it is also expensive for what you get, but for a special occasion it's worth it as our group was unaware of what happens that made it even more fun!"

  • "We had a great time celebrating a bachelorette party. Perfect loud party atmosphere. Our waiter was great (perfect amount of rudeness) he kept the group entertained and the live music was an added bonus. Definitely not a place to go to if you are trying to have a romantic and/or quiet date night. The food was just ok."

  • "I get it. We should've known what we were getting into. This place was bad because that is what they're going for."

  • "I scheduled this on open table and noted in the comments that it was my daughter's 18th Birthday celebration and if they could make it a memorable one. They did a great celebration for the table next to us and after seeing that we got excited for her. Time passed and nothing happened. We told our waitress that it was her birthday. She did nothing... Maybe she didn't believe us???"

  • "We were in San Diego for a work conference having traveled from Australia. I took my team there for our last night and we had a great time. The service and atttiude was awesome and the food and drinks fantastic. Some of my team commented that it was the best restaurant they had ever been to! The band was also excellent. It was a great venue for our noisy group."

  • "I really had no idea what I was getting us into when I made this reservation but I sure am glad I did. The servers "attitudes" and "rudeness" were hysterical. I had the Pasta la Vista with Chicken and my husband had the Fish and Chips. Both of our meals were outstanding. I'll go again next time I'm in San Diego."

  • "I took my daughter to Dicks for her 17th birthday. We had an amazing time. Best part was when the server put her face in a plate of whipped cream. A memorable night for all of us."

  • "food and drinks are way too expensive for the quality"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "The experience was unforgettable. It was very exciting the way the servers play with you. It is a flirting and teasing experience. i was hoping it would be a little more inappropriate but I realized that the staff must tame it down for the general public. Someone came up behind me and placed a handmade hat from butcher paper that someone had written on in magic marker, "Viagra saved my marriage." true it had but how did they know that? it was a blast and the food was excellent. The taste, the flavor and the texture were wonderful. i must say that the overall dining experience far exceeded my expectations! I will go back the next time I’m Insane Diego!"

  • "I went out with a group of girlfriends for my 30th birthday and had a blast!! This was all of our first times being there and they made sure to make us feel welcomed, in classic Dicks Last Resort fashion of course! It is a nice change up from a normal restaurant scene and I can not wait to go back. They had us laughing the entire time making the trip there well worth it!"

  • "We took our 15 year old there for a group birthday, her choice. The hats they customize for you are hysterical and we all had fun with that, even my 77 year old mom. The service was fast and cheerful. The waiters make the place. There was an 18 year old birthday in the room as well and you could tell they loved it too. The band started at the end of our dinner. I would have liked to stay longer because they were great. The girls got one dance in with some gals that turned 40, and they were working it! I would definitely go back for a fun time......"

  • "My experience was enjoyable, and the notorious service made memories for my group. My only complaint is that I wish my waitress had been ruder."
    Dined on 9/2/2013
  • "Loved it! Had a great time!!! Waiter was over the top RUDE, short and so fun. It's an experience you can't miss out on. The silly hats they make out of paper with obnoxious comments written on them, are hilarious! And the food was great too! We brought the whole family and they tamed the comments down for the kids, and everyone had a great time! Definitely will be back!"
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "As expected crazy service,wonderful food. Great atmosphere and service was wonderfully rude !! Would go back again for the entertainment value alone.."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "This place will help you have fun and if your on a date it will definitely help you break the ice. I never laughed so much just reading the other peoples hats and all the signs on the wall. I do wonder how the staff comes up with all the sayings to put on the hats."
    Dined on 8/2/2013
  • "Sarcasm and insults abounded.. which were expected, but the food wasn't good. It was tasteless and had no flavor. We had a large group (9) and no one will be back."
    Dined on 8/1/2013
  • "Great time. Great memories. Server Trevor was great. Hostess hilarious. Food was very good. Loved the burgers. Decor was fun to read and look at."

  • "Always fun to go here but wish I had known about the live band ahead of time. I probably would not have gone or I at least would have asked for a different seat. It was way too loud to celebrate the occasion we were there for."
    Dined on 6/28/2013
  • "The service was very slow and we didn't like that you didn't get your own table. You had to share a table with other customers. Also, the food was not very good. We had fish & chips and it tasted terrible. Salads were ok."
    Dined on 6/23/2013
  • "Everyone has to do it at least once. It's very expensive and the portions are small. The was ok. But it was fun. I like how they made hats for all of us and how sarcastic they were. It's an experience everyone, over 16, should try at least once! We probably won't be back because of the prices and portions but we can say we been there and done that!!"
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "Waiter had no time for us. We had to flag someone down several times to get drink (alcohol) refils and to remind our waiter of missed items ordered. I get the concept and it could have been more enjoyable if we the staff had time for us."
    Dined on 6/8/2013
  • "Hilarious commentary from the wait staff but only if you have a good sense of humor. Don't go if you can't take a joke you just ruin it for everyone else!"
