    Our go to order is the karage wings and pork prime rib. Been here a bunch and never got anything that wasn’t very good. Burger, flat bread and strip steak are also favs. Charcuterie wasn’t to my liking.

    Medium rare burger was over cooked and pretzel bun made it too thick to bite, cauliflower could use more char on the grill and seasoning, bottle of champagne came out near end of appetizer, fries with fish and chips weren’t hot. Despite the food, service was decent and ambience was nice. Don’t see myself coming back.

    Great food and location! I'll be back for sure! FYI: Jet noise is present and can be LOUD (Liberty Station is in the flight path, after all, and it's not the Presley's fault). Cocktails are good but on the pricey side -- which seems to be the standard at many restaurants these days. It'd be nice if one "signature" drink didn't cost as much or more than an entree! : )

    Never seated never served. Left after 20 minutes of being ignored…aggressively ignored. No drinks …nothing, serving people around us, without doing more then staring right at us without stopping to help. About 5 jets flew over in that time shattering the silence each time one passes from a nearby airport. They also add a 4% surcharge directly onto the bill stating covid and supply issues. All around terrible. Maybe we looked like we didn’t have enough money because we were not in dockers and a pink button up. Was a pretty pathetic display of service that was a true first for me. Luckily I’m not local and will never go back.

    Food was okay, but for the price you can find better. All of liberty station is in the takeoff area of SD airport so planes fly over every 5-10 minutes if you don’t mind the noise.

    We didn't wait long for service and our Bloody Marys, tea and coffee were quick and delicious and welcome! For me the menu was limited. I ordered the orange ricotta pancakes with cranberry butter, accompanied by bacon and eggs. It was tasty and they got my eggs right, which I appreciate. But I missed the orange ricotta in my pancakes. It may have been there, but not a lot or not a very punchy flavor. The outdoor seating exceeded expectations, beautiful environs and coverings for shade. But it was a super-crowded Saturday, the boat races were that day, plus the north side of Liberty Station is now saturated with restaurants, shops and outdoor venues like golf -- so really high density, tough to find parking. And it is in the flight path, thus the high noise.

    We were a group of seven men over 80 yrs old. The service staff was exceptional. The food was good but not exceptional. We dined outside. The airplane noise was a bit troublesome but it did not affect our enjoyment much. I think the ceiling curtain helps a lot for both airplane noise and sun. Overall we had an enjoyable time.

    It was my first time coming to Presley‘s the drinks were amazing the french fries were absolutely outstanding the service was impeccable. I ordered the seafood sliders and for a mayonnaise-based salad it wasn’t cold so I only ate one of the sliders and took the rest with me and then decided to discard them. I just didn’t wanna take a chance I’m getting sick,my only suggestion is the food be served at the proper temperature. Other than that we had a wonderful time!

    My friends and I love The Presley! Brunch, lunch or dinner…. They never disappoint. The food is yummy (try the flatbread or the lobster/shrimp sliders), and the Dole whip Mimosa is a must. The planes and “Point Loma” pause is even forgotten when the food arrives. Totally recommend!

    It was okay the waitstaff was very nice. My husband loved his French toast. I liked my salad, the Parker house rolls were not as good as they have been the last two times. Don’t like the extra 4% they add to your bill because of the pandemic. It’s not for the wait staff it’s for the owners. Really!!!’n

    All was very good, food and drinks are always delish. Only thing that put us off was not seeing our nice server for a bit only to discover they’d gone on break. Usually they let their table know and advise them to get help from another server set up to cover their tables. Otherwise, the Presley is always a good choice and our server did an excellent job

    First time here & luved it! Attractive, outdoor seating venue. Food was fantastic & arrived quickly! We had made a birthday reservation but our waiter was a bit overburdened with tables which took forever to receive water, place our order & acknowledging the birthday! Yes, get used to competing with plane departures & convo. All in all, I would recommend!

    Food was really good but the airplanes totally disrupt group conversation- it’s constant. Service was poor - nice gal, but never around unless we flagged her down. Our party of 9 would have ordered a lot more if she would have been available. Split our bill between the party- i think she added an automatic tip for party size but she didn't tell us so we tipped on top of that. Large parties- ask to c check before tipping.

    The outdoor dining was lovely. However, the service was not good. The first server wouldn’t keep us out of the sun and took forever to come to our table. Second server was better but service was very , very slow. It took 25 mins from time we sat down to get our drinks. The food was delicious.

    Went here before taking a couple out of town friends to the airport. I made a reservation for 430 and we were running a few minutes late. I went online to try to change it to 5 PM but nothing was available till 8:15 PM. We arrived at 4:50 and there were many open tables, odd that I wasn’t able to adjust the reservation. We had a very nice server named Blake. It took quite some time to receive our first round of cocktails. I think they were shortstaffed on servers and I only saw one bartender, so we were looking around for a server a couple of times to order more drinks and order food. The flatbreads were very tasty. Service seemed slow overall. The place is very cute. I will definitely go back, but not if I have a limited amount of time.

    Food was good, drinks were great. The service was good until the end of the meal. Restaurant closes at 10pm and we ordered a few desserts to share, coffee, and asked for take out boxes, at approximately 9:20. Coffee and dessert came out timely, but the to-go boxes were not brought and dirty plates were not removed. We were a party of 8, so there were lots of dishes and the table was quite crowded. After about 15 minutes I had to go ask for to-go boxes and bussed our own table so that there was room to share dessert. We also had to ask for cream and sugar and additional spoons for coffee. Staff was not slammed- there were only a handful of tables and two servers and one busser were on the floor along with several food runners. However, at this point staff was tending more to closing side work than the remaining tales. Multiple staff walked by the table and did not bother to take plates away. I understand that getting side work done and closing duties are important, especially on a Saturday night when people want to get out of there, but not at the expense of tending to customers, especially when restaurants are adding an additional 4% surcharge and adding 20% to larger parties. Very disappointing experience.

    The food is good. Some of the best calamari I have had in a long time. The fish and chips are also very good although the fries are just ordinary. Conversation can be difficult when the planes fly over. Overall experience was very good.
