As San Diego’s original steakhouse, Saska’s is committed to preserving its status in history as an instantly familiar gathering place for locals in the Mission Beach community.

We hadn't been in years, made it time for happy hour every day until 5pm, $4 draft beers, a good selection of appetizers and a skirt steak dinner with potatoes and veggies, very good and reasonable at $14. Excellent service as well with a good mix of oldies rock playing. Will definitely go again and take advantage of their great happy hour offerings!

Its fallen off a bit. website said 5 dollar pkg with validation. That is over but we didnt find out until we waited outside forever. Food wasnt the same. Booth by the kitchen get all the smells of trash, someone smoking out back etc. Server was ok but missing salt at table, steak knives. Meat was cross section with cartilage and tough. carrots had a weird taste to them. mixed vegies would have been better i mean how many people want a huge pile of carrots. missing that warm family feeling as well..

Beautiful bar, great food— dimly lit yet quite classy... a perfect non-pretentious neighborhood steakhouse. 🙌

Here’s a classy place that’s been around awhile but still speaks of comfort, elegance, and hospitality. I met family that I hadn’t seen in years, and we had a blast. Even my 5-year-old niece - who was ecstatic of the macaroni and cheese!

Several of us enjoyed the Saska sirloin. I’m still feeling the afterburn of the horseradish.

We go to Saska's every time we are in San Diego. Usually 6 times a year. We love dinner there, but also stop in late afternoon for drinks and appetizers. Everything is always spectacular. The steaks are excellent, their drinks always just right, and the price is reasonable for the level of food and service.

Saska's is a must for us.

Hadn't been to Saska's in decades. A group of high school friends (and 1 daughter) were staying at a hotel close by but we wanted a nice restaurant for a birthday celebration. I picked Saska's The meat lovers were very pleased with their steaks and prime rib selections. I had the halibut and it was also very good.
The service was good and attentive. I would go again if in the area but I live 35 miles north.

Our server was amazing - food was really good and a great value. Our only issue was we had a group of 10 for a graduation dinner and it was impossible to hear people talking. We had a great time though

I have been a customer since the early 60's. I appreciate the efforts made from the transition of a 65 year plus family owned to the more corporate type restaurant. There is still a feel of the "good ol ' Saska's and a very attentive wait staff.

Our wait staff, Kristen, Geronimo and the maitre d Ryan were all awesome. we were there New year's Eve and went for the old world style dining and that is exactly what it was. We enjoyed the feel of the old-time steakhouse combined with upscale service and friendly people.

I made a reservation and in error we arrived on the incorrect day. Although we did have a short wait ( as expected ) our party of 8 was accommodated. Our waiter was friendly, and the food was delicious.

For 17 years we have gone to Saska’s and experienced great food however, it is best if you make reservations for 2 or more in party. Singles/pairs can sit at their bar to eat, but wait times may get long. The signature drinks are fun to try as well. We love the deep red leather booths, it reminds us of the old steak houses. The Mac & Cheese could be a decadent meal on its own❣️❤️❣️ We also like that “happy hour” is twice a night! For that night of beef or seafood, sports or conversation, drinks and cheer...SASKA’S, Pacific Beach, Ca

I had filet mignon medium rare— really good/ husband had prime rib cooked to his liking and he said it was better than previously. Only complaint was they served us both Brussels sprouts - they said that’s their seasonal vegetable— you don’t get a choice. We both dislike them — but otherwise a very good meal. Excellent wait staff.

I'm sure there is a reason; however, it would have been nice to have the giant fireplace going for a more cozy ambiance in the dining room.

It's wonderful to have such a top quality steak house in Pacific Beach. Saska's never disappoints. We try to get the big red booth in the bar area when we come with friends. The steaks are great, the prime rib perfect and the twice baked potato is awesome. The honey blue cheese dressing is not to be missed.
