Rockin Baja Lobster Old Town
We really enjoyed the food and our waitresses! Everything was great
Amazing overall! The service was excellent and the food was perfect! We will be going again!
Father’s Day celebration
This restaurant is awesome! But if you’re in the mood for drinks this is not the best place for alcoholic beverages, watered down and overpriced. The on the other hand is delicious 😋
Great location for families! Parking is limited but can be found. Reservations are a definite plus to make in advance. Would recommend to anyone!
We took our Granddaughter, who was out from Indians celebrating her 27th birthday. Having ate there numerous times before we were very disappointed that it took three try’s at getting the kitchen to get her order right. After all the problems they still charged for her meal.
The food was amazing and the best service we had our whole trip!
This was a great choice for a late lunch! Service was outstanding food was great, best chicken Cesar ever!! Highly recommend
Delicious!! Split a burrito.
Always a great experience
Great. Super nice waitress the manager was nice.. we had a bit of a spill and quickly helped us
Service was ok .
The buckets are amazing and plentiful. The tortilla’s are fresh and the margarita pitcher is perfect for 4. Our waitress was attentive. This is a great place to eat real Baja Mexican food.
I never leave reviews but this was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever encountered. We had early reservations at 4:30 for a party of six. It was my daughter’s 13th birthday. We were seated on time and our appetizers arrived and they very good. Then our main entrees came without appetizer dishes being picked up. We struggled to slide them over. We sat with empty drinks didn’t see the waiter again until he was ready to bring us the bill. I said it was a special occasion and we weren’t ready for our bill but would like to order dessert. I also asked if we could have our table cleared as there was no room and just piles and piles of dishes. Along comes another other than our waiter with our desserts. Clearly there was no room to even place them down, again I asked if our table could be cleared, looking completely put off he walked away, within another minute another server tried to deliver our desserts and I again asked that our desserts not be delivered until our table could be cleared. The server removed a few plates and in a condescending tone said “is this better” …. I said it was total BS our entire experience. He said I didn’t need to get irate about it and walked away. I will never ever go back to that place. The lobster was so over cooked and dry my fork bent just trying to get it out of the shell. There was zero care in the world for customer service…. Acting like they were doing us a big favor. I DO NOT recommend this establishment. My daughter left in tears.
The food came out at room temperature which then went to cold fast and our waitress didn't bring us the tortillas until we were almost done
A well decorated restaurant but not worth the cost. Ordered seafood skillet was $22 and very tiny. Small pieces of shrimp and scallops. Very little amount of lobster. Our waitress was nice but nothing extra. I understand places are recovering but this isn’t the way.
Fantastic place. Highly recommended. Brandin was a wonderful server
We were a party of 9. 4 adults and 5 children. We set outside on a patio were everyone was so cold. The heaters were continually blowing out. There was no defense from the wind. The 4 adults managed to buck the wind the poor kids had to bundle up like they were going to the snow. Being on the outside patio was MISERABLE. The service was spotty. I personally sat there with an empty glass most of my dinner. Our poor server was trying to run many large tables alone. Our meals came out in stages. The first meals were cold by the time the final kids meal came out. I'll go back as we enjoyed the food. Next time I'll specify indoor patio.
Great as always!
Been to this establishment many times! This was one of the best meals we ever had! We got the special! 10 stars!!
Great place to eat and awesome costumer service, good job!!
Birthday lunch for a friend
It felt like we were in Puerto Nuevo, which was really fun! We came here because we had family in town and it was so fun to have a space to eat good food and get a little messy with the crab and lobster. Also, the food is really tasty! I highly recommend the Golden Sombrero and churros.
Music was a tad loud, hard to have a conversation but we were also sat under the speaker.
Main course took so long to serve. Had to ask waiter twice. Other than that, the food is great.
Still the best lobster in San Diego. You also can't beat the Old Town atmosphere. Great service too. I highly recommend you make a reservation.
Made reservation and they sat us early. Our waiter Raul was outstanding!
Everything was good except for our service server never returned to our table..we were celebrating our Anniversary.
First time dining here and I really enjoyed my experience! Place has good vibes, free chips and salsa, good drinks, menu has a lot of good items and staff were very nice and attentive! Highly recommended and will come back again!
Great Service and Grest Food. Our server was friendly and helpful.
Awesome as always. The service and food never disappoints. This is always the 1st place we eat it when visiting San Diego.
The food was excellent but the service was very poor. The waitress was snide and condescending. A large door was opened letting in wind gusts that made the temperature of the restaurant drop drastically. I have been to this location multiple times before and had great experiences. I guess this time I got the bad waitress.
I was disappointed in the food. I have eaten here before the food was better. Got the lobster and shrimp bucket. Shrimp was plentiful and good but the lobster were the smallest I have ever seen. No way you can share 1 bucket with two people. For 40 each the lobster should have been larger than 3 inches. Probably won't ear there again.
I went on Wednesday so I ordered the lobster special. It was absolutely delicious. At first it appeared to be small, however even the body of the lobster had plentiful meat. I had a delicious pina colada and shrimp with A lime cream sauce which was wonderful. What added to the very good meal was my waitress, Alyssa. She checked on me quite often to make sure everything was OK and I told her I would ask for her again. I couldn’t Have asked for a better experience.
Great food a d customer service
Drink were too tangy and I had to request a double shot just to taste the alcohol. Service was great and food was great
The food and service was great! Definitely returning back to the establishment!
Great customer service and the reservation made last week made this trip worth while. I appreciate the staff and greatly enjoy the food. Thank you again!
Our server was rude took forever to take our orders we finally got our drinks and we had to ask to order appetizers and it took forever for our server to come back and take our food order. It wasn’t very busy and there were plenty of servers so they can’t say it was due to staffing.
The waiter and hostesses were nice and did great overall. Took a very long time for initial drink orders and no refill on the chips. We did appreciate the kid friendly atmosphere. Food was COVERED in grease and WAY over done. For $45 the Sea of Cortez bucket was small and fried/ covered in butter. I would expect fresher and just steamed with light butter if any. The food is sub par “Baja” style. Tourist may enjoy it, but as a local I have been a few times and it is terrible quality every time. Food needs a Noah or upgrade.
