Dick�s Last Resort in San Diego is a gathering spot for food, drink and plenty of laughs. From the eccentric d�cor to the highly sarcastic servers, Dick�s Last Resort is a dining experience you won�t want to miss. Just be prepared to don a hat filled with insults, or have napkins thrown at you in jest.

With Dick�s Last Resort, you won�t find any fancy menu headings. Instead, �for yer dinna� is a selection of entr�es like Southwest chicken salad, crab legs, firecracker salmon and a BBQ combo. �For yer sweet tooth� and �for yer rugrats� menus provide a number of desserts and special plates sized for young diners.

Our server Cher was a total blast really made our night... She was hilarious and very attentive. We'll definitely be back. Thanks, Dick's and Cher!

The place was fun. Our server we had a great personality & interacted with the adults & kids (ages 6, 10 & 14) great. He made everyone at the table laugh (10 people total).
The salmon was highly recommend, so I ordered it. The food took about 1 hr to agesrriverrive. It was not crowded, so not sure what the hold up was. Once it arrived, I was disappointed that the highly recommend salmon tasted horrible: it was very dry and tasted as if it was previously frozen (not fresh), the rice didn't taste great either and the green beans tasted like they came out of can & were microwaved (a few people had rice & green beans & had the same feeling).
The server was nice enough to take the salmon plate back & remove it from the table (I took 2 small bites from the whole entrée).
The other food was good (wings, crab legs, crab cakes, chicken bites, fries, Mac & cheese...)
Over all fun time & great server. Just stick with the chicken and fries for food.

I understand they are know for their "attitudes" but that doesn't excuse the poor service we received and the sub par food. The salmon ($18) was extremely dry and the rice had no flavor. My friends thought their meals were tasteless also. I don't mind having service with an "attitude" but inattentiveness and crappy food is inexcusable. Was not a fun experience.

The waiter was great. The drinks were good. Tried the nachos but didn't like them.

Service was rude (it's supposed to be part of the experience but the staff takes it too far). Menu online is far more helpful than what you get at the restaurant, and the atmosphere is beyond tacky. Items were requested with modifications and for things to be withheld and arrived with the wrong things. Good luck getting the attention of the server, or paying your bill, we spent 30 minutes trying to flag them down and eventually just walked up to our server with the check and card so that we could leave.

The server did not give the proper dick last resort welcome no hats and no back talking like the other server that night

Always fun at Dicks. We went for a birthday celebration and our server was great and just the right amount of rude. We really enjoyed him. We had one small complaint. We were waiting for the bill long after we were done and ready to go. Other than that small inconvenience, it was a great time and the food was really good!!

I thought that for the price of the meal, there might have been a larger serving size. The price for beer was waaaay over what it should have been. I realize that this place is in gas lamp, but there is no need to jack up the prices like what I saw here. I could get a 2-pack of beer for the price that I paid for a tall beer here. The service was average at best. I chose not to say anything at the restaurant so as not to embarrass my guests from out of town.

Food & alcohol wasn't very good. Server was funny. Ordered the crab cake dinner & got neausous afterwards. Also, $8 more for 2 little crab legs was kinda silly. Beer tasted funny. The food was too expensive for what is was.

So much fun, if you have a sense of humor. Great place to celebrate and hang with friends.

Celebrated our son's 16th birthday and the staff made him fell like a VIP. They treated our family better (for a special occasion) then any of the high dollar restaurants we have been to. We go out to eat for our kids' birthdays every year and this night was the best, by far. Our server was incredible and so much fun! Just the perfect amount of "rude" for the kids! Thank you so much for great entertainment and a yummy dinner!

We went here for a fun night & thought this restaurant would be perfect. We had all been to the Vegas location before & had a great time, so coming to the one in SD sounded great. We were wrong. There were no actual menus to know what we were ordering & the server paid almost no attention to us. No hats. No jokes. We might as well have been at Sizzler.

Sitting at bar meant attention by server was limited. No funny hat action. Bar quality food at 3 star prices. Not the best experience and sure was not a great deal.

This was a really fun place. We had a variety of ages in our party, and everybody had a really fun time. Our sassy, sarcastic waiter was hilarious; without being inappropriate around the kids.
We'll definitely be back when we are back in San Diego.

Went there for all you can eat crab legs on a Wednesday but as their add didn't mention all you can eat crab legs are only on Monday and Tuesday. Decided to eat there anyways and the food is decent for bill was $100 just for 2 of us. Would rather spend that at a nicer venue. Will come back for the all you can eat crab legs for $26.99 though.
