A hundred thousand welcomes to The Field San Diego's most Authentic Irish Pub & Restaurant. Join us in our turn of the century Irish pub shipped literally piece by piece from Ireland & relocated in the heart of San Diego's Historic Gaslamp Quarter. As soon as you walk through the door you will be enveloped by the warm relaxing atmosphere of an old Irish country pub. Irish the world over have earned a reputation for their friendliness & hospitality, so our crew will make you feel welcome & relaxed as soon as you meet them. The air is filled with the buzz of people engaging in the art of conversation, savoring the homemade food, enjoying the traditional music & of course the clink of glasses as revelers sample one of our many imported draft beers. If you prefer something a little stronger we boast one of San Diego's largest selection of single malt & blended whiskey. Irish, Scotch, Bourbon, & Rye - over 50 different labels in all.

    We came to The Field for our anniversary. We were seat at a table on the second level by the windows where we could view the street and going ons below. The decor is lovely and charming. The food was outstanding. We had the fish and chips and sampler platter. Everything was delicious! Our server was attentive without being overbearing. We came back for the live band later in the evening and sat at the bar. Jenna, the bar tender, was fantastic!! The band was fun and definitely played to the crowd. We look forward to returning soon!

    The Field has great atmosphere. Our server, Joan, was excellent. Some in our party had very good food;I ordered the Boxty and it was smothered in the sauce which kind of ruined it. A band started while we we were eating and they were excellent musicians; their “shtick” loaded with vulgarities and mocking people was annoying.

    Super fun & authentic atmosphere, great live music at night. Interesting Irish pub fare, which provides some unique options. All the times I’ve been here we have Irish servers, which adds to the great atmosphere. My husband & I shared the Irish sampler for dinner this time & we really enjoyed the shepherd pie & corned beef & cabbage. The Guinness stew was a bit salty (and I really like heavily salted food, so that says a lot). Decent prices for Gaslamp & always friendly service!

    First of all. I want to say thank you for the 25% off for signing up for your newsletter. The food was okay but nothing special. I got the Irish sampler. Corned beef, Irish Stew, Chicken Boxy, and Shepherds Pie. Beer and Jameson were what you expect. The down side was a female who was extremely loud. (Screaming at times) and very....very intoxicated. Why she was not removed from the premises is beyond me. The waitress even commented after she left....”I’m sure glad she is finally gone.” Sometimes you just have to “take out the trash”. This is an enjoyable place....just caught them on a bad night. I’ll be back.

    I was visiting San Diego and was told about the Field so I gave it a try. I was greeted very pleasantly and was seated on a second story level overlooking the street, just a great view. The waitress was from Ireland and was very nice. I ordered the Irish Sampler dinner and was very impressed. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was as well. Loved that they played Irish music.

    This is a find! A truly authentic Irish pub/restaurant, literally imported from Ireland piece-by-piece, with everything - the food, the decor, the music - fitting the theme. The shepherd's pie and the fish and chips were both excellent. I'm eager to go back on the third Sunday of the month when they have Irish dancing.
