Great food. Nice waitress. Great beer. Giant bread pudding. Would go back. Wish there had been live music while we were there but that’s ok.

I attended the country brunch and it was so cute. I went with my girl friend from work and we had so much fun. The service was awesome and we were up close and personal with the band. I got to meet them and even met a few regulars that go to that event often. I would recommend for anyone of any age.

The service was superb and happy hour was a great value. Our dinners were just okay - I would not order the cobb salad again as it was basically lettuce with some bacon bits and eggs, but my husband's cajun pasta had good flavor. Also, the Pass the Line was a great selling point.

Just OK. Nothing special as far as a Brunch menu is concerned. Huge need for the menu to be reworked. The music for Brunch was outstanding and we would return just for the music and "Bottomless Bloody Marys"

Wanted to take my wife to the legendary HOB -San Diego for the experience. I was there last in 2011 or 2012 to see Hollywood Undead play.
This time I got to actually sit down and enjoy the experience. The nachos were worth it!

Food was good. Had chicken tacos, champagne salad with pecans, and a side of brussel sprouts. The sprouts were o die for and paired great with the salad. Too bad we didn't have an interesting glass of white wine with it like a Gewurtzaminer.

Everyone enjoyed their entrees which included jambalaya, shrimp 'n grits, baby back ribs, and the shrimp and crab risotto. The service was excellent. The other two couples hadn't been there before and said that they would like to come again.

Our hostess greeted us and asked us if this was our first visit and was extremely helpful in explaining how dinner before the show worked. Our server Gabby was just awesome and did not rush us. Her food recommendations were spot on perfect. The meals were great. No hesitation to go back next time we're in San Diego.
