The Bunker Hill Bar & Grill offers an upscale alternative to your typical sports bar. Our clientele finds a comfortable environment for both business lunches and weekend football. We offer a variety of foods (wings, tacos, burgers and sushi), happy hour everyday, draft and bottled craft beers on top of a full bar, and enough big screens to watch any game being broadcast (on DirecTV).

Bunker Hill Bar & Grill is nestled on the NW corner of 5th and Grand in the heart of the financial district. Our patio offers beautiful views of the downtown architecture and our heaters keep you warm on those cold Southern California nights. Bunker Hill features four distinct menus - weekday lunch, happy hour, dinner, and weekend brunch. We accept reservations a day ahead of time, large parties, and restaurant buy outs. Give us a call, or come in today, to experience a different kind of sports bar.

Made a reservation for noon to watch a World Cup game. Arrived at noon and had to wait in line and also wait for the host to get off the phone to even get to the host. Didn't get to the host until 12:27. Granted we were seated immediately after finally getting to the host but improvements need to be made on customer intake. I understand that there was probably a high volume of people given the special event but a good restaurant is usually able to fluidly manage a full house. Opentable even indicated that the noon time slot was no longer available for reservations so they had fair warning that it was going to be a packed lunch. The food was mediocre for the price. It's a good place to watch a game (TVs everywhere so you're able to watch the game no matter where you're seat) but only if you make reservations in advance and come earlier than when you intend to be seated.

Not impressed by the food or service. Food came out in stages. by the time some of the final plates came out the rest of us were done. We had to keep asking for refills since our glasses just sat there empty during the meal. Once we were done was when we were offered refills. We were there when it was relatively empty for the service we received. Our waiter was very friendly, helpful and accommodating that's why we gave it an overall 3 stars.

The chicken and waffles was out of this world! Juicy and crispy with great flavor. We also had the short rib Benedict, which was also fantastic. Service was exceptional!

I went there for Happy Hour after work on 4/30/18 around 4:30.
There’ve been many times before.

I don’t know why the food was terrible!
Calamari are too oily, not crispy! Sweet potato fries, Garlic Brussels are overcooked!

That was the first time.
What’s happened !
Did you change the Chef?

The waiter told us the kitchen was closed at 8pm after we were shown to our table. Our reservation was 8:30. Then when we stood up to leave, he took a food order from another couple. Then said ok, I guess they’re still open. I just think he wanted to go home.

I really like the burger and sweet potato fries at this pub. However, the noise level with all of the tvs and the super loud music is much too loud for any kind of conversation. And the AC is blasting cold. This is my last visit to this place.

We were a table of 6 on 4/5/18 with a reservation at 11 am. 3 of the 6 of us ordered fish and chips. One person left most of her fish and chips and ate her french fries so the server took it off the check while the other 2 who ordered fish and chips ate it. The fish and chips were overfried and very dry. This was clearly the worse fish and chips i have ever had. Very unhappy with the fish and chips . We have gone to Bunker Hill before as our office it across the street from Bunker Hill Restaurant. We are hesitating whether we will go there for future lunches. It was just so bad. I would not recommend the fish and chips ever to other people. The other half of our party was pleased with their food which one ordered cobb salad, soup and salad, and someone ordered a pasta dish.

Ordered the quinoa burger. It was filling and came with a salad. However, at $14, it should have come with fries. The fries were good and are meant to be shared at $6. Nonetheless, lunch would run you $21 for and sandwich, split fries, tax and tip. Thats pretty pricey for your own pocket vs an expense account.

Disappointed this time. They closed earlier, but never advised us why they were rushing us through our meal until the very end when they advised us that they are closing early due to maintenance. I’m not sure why they couldn’t have told me that when we walked in and I had reservations for two weeks. Someone could have said something at some point in time instead of rushing us through our meal and then kicking us out in the end.

Bunker hill was a very great relaxed place to have brunch. They serve inexpensive mimosas (not bottomless, but cheap enough it’s not an issue). My only complaint is that the prices on the website didn’t match.

First time visiting though have walked by on numerous occasions. Fresh selection of salads - many beer to choose from (though we didn't imbibe during our lunch hour so will have to return for HH). Bright, sunny environment which we enjoyed. Only complaint, and it's minor, is we were nearly finished - as in one or two bites away - with our meal before the waitress returned to ask if everything was okay. Doesn't detract though - I'd return.

Went in for lunch with a friend. Service was nice and prompt. We both ordered salads and both were disappointing as there were drenched in salad dressing, I mean crazy drenched. The greens were so soaked in dressing I honestly could not tell the mixture of lettuces! No time to send back to kitchen.

The food was absolutely horrible. I’ve never had such a dry grilled chicken taco before. The server that brought us our meal just threw the food on the table. He didn’t ask who ordered what; he just put the plates on the table and walked off. Bunker Hill Bar & Grill is the WORST restaurant I’ve ever dined in!!!!

Opted to dine here so that our friend could watch football before our reservation at The Broad Museum. Wasn't expecting the food to be any better than your typical sports bar fare so, wasn't disappointed when that is pretty much what we experienced. That being said, the food was decent and our server, although not overly attentive, was very nice. It seems they were short staffed for the night so he was not entirely to blame. I would dine here again if I was in DTLA and looking for a place to watch a game. The number of televisions to patrons ratio is most certainly a draw for any sports fan.
