Searsucker San Diego, located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp District of Downtown San Diego, is a nationally recognized restaurant concept by Top Chef alum Brian Malarkey. Menus are both serious and fun, with creative twists on New American Classics for Weekend Brunch, Weekday Lunch, Dinner and Happy Hour. Dishes range from shared plates and small bites ideal for the whole table, to farm and ocean dishes that you’ll want to keep all to yourself.

Searsucker embodies the social dining experience by encouraging guests to come early and stay late. Inspired by the simplicity, relaxed and feel-good vibe of the seersucker fabric, Chef Brian Malarkey created a space that invites patrons to relax and enjoy. The airy design features a glass enclosed kitchen, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a lively bar area. Patrons can watch the action, chat without boundaries and feel as if they’re at a friend’s dinner party rather than a restaurant.

We’ve been here a number of times, & always have enjoyed. We took our daughter for her 25th Birthday. We always get the “Smalls” & share. Oug favs are the tomatoe soup with grilled cheese, pork belly, & the biscuits. Love the broccoli & Brussels sprouts too. Looking forward to going back again!

Enjoyable gourmet food in casual setting. We were staying at the Pendry Hotel and this restaurant was close walking distance

I would highly recommend Searsucker. I scheduled a client dinner with a group of 8 in our party and the restaurant was very accommodating. The atmosphere and ambience was very nice. They have a wide variety of drinks and food. Our food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their dinner entrée and were very pleased overall with the restaurant selection. Reservations were for 6pm, but as the night progressed closer to 9pm the noise was a little louder and difficult to have conversations across the table. Overall, I would definitely recommend!

The scallops were not so good (they really need a starch with all that sauce), the short rib appetizer was tasty. The side of corn was delicious.

Food is great. Service is TERRIBLE. Don't worry, though, once the hostesses finish their conversation about the latest Searsucker drama and gossip, they will acknowledge your presence and say hello and take you to your table. Eventually, the waiter will arrive at your table to introduce him/herself. He/she'll also eventually put your order into the system, but not for at least 30 minutes. (You won't see him/her during this time, by the way.) When the order does come out, the food runner may or may not knock over your champagne, sending ice water flying across your table, shoes, and the floor. (Fortunately, your food will have taken so long to get to the table that you will have already finished the said bottle of champagne, so that's a plus.)

As much as it wants to be, Searsucker is not all that. Quickly becoming a has-been. A little customer service training would be useful. When it's this bad, it's usually the management.
