One of the waiters that worked here decided to start training mixed martial arts while serving a table behind me and elbowed my head. I should have known watching the younger gentlemen shadowboxing every chance he had a break. Friggin moron.

Fun place to go if you don't care about the night. The food and drinks are fairly good but nothing exceptional and the crowd I saw was generally under 30. There are other bars I prefer over Dicks Last Resort but that being said it is still a place you should at least go to once.

If you're young and like a bunch of stupid loud kids running around, then sure, go to Dick's. but why when there are so many better options in this part of town.

With all the bars in this area, why even come here. it's out of control sometimes and really a hang out for kids who just turned 21. I'm way too old and don't need the too-cool-for-school attitude.

This place is supposed to be fun, not at all. If you confuse vulgarity and sexuall verbal abuse for fun then I guess so. Our waiter, Vick, was so personally insulting that my 20 year old daughter would not eat her food, because as she put it "" I wouldn't be surprised if these are the kind of people that spit in your food"". - Oh, and also, Vick the waiter, had no problem telling us about the sh%@#$y food they served there. Will never ever ever go back.

Ah, Dick's Last Resort. This place is great if you're looking for a fun/funny night out with friends or for a celebration. The servers really get into character and seem like they enjoy getting into the theme. I love that the whole restaurant has a unified theme, actually - the food is served in metal buckets, the servers throw straws and utensils (folded in napkins) at you, and funny paraphernalia on the walls.

The food is pretty good from what I remember..nothing too special or unique, but good enough to go back and eat there multiple times. A bit pricey which is a shame because I don't think the food is all that unique, but I think the inflated price is due to the theme of the restaurant.

It's a restaurant I've been to multiple times, but it's more for big groups of friends and is usually a planned thing. Not really a good impromptu place unless you're in the mood for it.

Okay, it's pretty much known that this place has rude service - mabye they think it's kitchy and charming. The worst part of this place is the insanely obnoxious staff up front whose job it is to holler at people walking by to try to get them to eat there. Seriously, you're embarrassed for them and embarrassed to be sitting there.

I've been to Dick's place several times. I can't go four stars because the drinks are fairly overpriced. (I know, all the drinks downtown are overpriced. That's why I wouldn't give any of the places downtown more than four stars.)

Ok, back to Dick's. The atmosphere is great. People that go to Dick's are there to have a good time and that is generally what you get. If you are going to Dick's for the first time be ready to be seated at a big table with a bunch of people you don't know and having napkins wadded up and thrown at you.

Re the food, it's good. It's not great, but it's good. Better than I would normally expect in this type of setting. Dont' be an idiot, If you are looking for gourmet go down the street. This is a bar first and a restaurant second.

The service IS slow. Again, what do you expect? This place is always jammed with a couple hundred rowdy beer swilling napkin throwing revelers so getting a drink or a meal can take a while. Do your self a favor, order your drinks two at a time, or get off your lazy butt, walk to the bar and order one from the bartender. Half the fun of this place is getting up and mixing with the clientele anyway.

The food is good enough, the service is good enough, but the atmosphere absolutely makes up for both and allows me to give four stars.

I went to dicks last resort a few weeks ago and i have to say it can get rough for you if you are a guy.But its all fun and games. From getting insults to bad service but you do get good food. Parking is a bit of a hassle but if you like to experience a different restaurant scene check this one out.

i went to Dick's Last Resort for a co workers going away party. We had lunch there and it was good. The food was great but service was OK. They make rude comments and i though it would be fun/funny but they were dumb comments. Also they were not able to split the bill at the end so if you go there for a party with lots of people wanting to pay separately don't go there, it will be stressful. Also they don't have parking at the restaurant so you have to park in payed parking down the road.

The food is nothing to speak of and is overpriced, but the atmosphere is perfect for older teenagers and young adults. Staff is rude, but that is what the intended atmosphere is for. Going there with a group of ladies for lunch was not a great experience, however, they were crass and mildly offensive. Not my cup of tea but if you are looking for potty and sexual humor, then it might be yours.

I have been to this place hundreds of times and never ever been disappointed. Service is just what you expect (rude...but that's the whole point). Food is delicious and at a great value even for a downtown bar in San Diego, and the music rocks.
We keep going back after years....

I've been to Dicks's so many times I can't count anymore. The people are wonderful, food and drinks always great. The music around you sets the tone. For casual fun, go to this place. It's like kicking off your shoes, relaxing and having a great time.

If you don't know about this place and about the service you will be surprised and upset. They toss salt shakers to you and take other people napkins. But that's all part of the fun. You don't have to mind your manners and you get to meet everyone around you. The food is superb...

Dick's Last Resort is a place where you would get food, have a fight with the waiter, get napkins thrown at you by the waiter, and laugh about it. The restaurant is totally down-to-earth, and the atmosphere is chill-lax. The customers who go there are there to just have a good time/fight/laugh. There are also plenty of bachelorette parties that go on there, so be prepared for some drunken craziness.

I went to Dicks for a friends birthday and had a blast. If you''re stuck up or can't take a joke don't go to Dicks Last resort, but if your looking for a good, fun, crazy atmosphere then Dicks is your place. The food is good, and the servers are fun to be around. If you're visiting San Diego and want a fun night and not your typical restaurant, i recommend Dicks.

Nice and Polite NOT ON YOUR LIFE! And I LOVED IT! These guys are good. Hecklers don't stand a chance. Visiting San Diego near the Convention Center or the New Stadium, This is a Must Stop By! A burger is a burger and Pizza is Pizza and a beer is a beer. To each his own but the atmosphere will stop you in your tracks. I tell everyone that is visiting SD, CAL, that they must visit the LAST RESORT!

Okay, so I have been to Dick's a couple of times and I realize it's their ""thing"" to have rude servers and its all part of the atmosphere. But seriously, sometimes they really cross the line. First off, when our waiter gave us the bill for a party of 8 he kind of jokingly stated that he ""deserved"" a 20 dollar tip. Then I realized he hadn't charged me for my soup and I could have easily not paid for it but I believe in Karma so I notified him, at which point he said he could let it slip by if he got a 25 dollar tip. Okay, wtf. The soup was only 4 dollars!!!

This is the place to be after a hard days work. Come here to get the experience that no other restaurant has to offer. Loud, obnactious servers with an attitude! You will have so much fun here you won't believe it. Sit down with a group of friends to drinks, great food, and a lot of mouth between you and the servers. I reccomend asking for Taco as your server... this guy sure knows how to do it up! You will always leave with a smile.

I went to Dick's, nothing like it in Europe I have to say. I found it very interesting, the waiters (male) were nice to me though, but to my guy friends, they gave them a hard time, but apparently my guy friends knew about this place so they threw food at the waiters. That was kinda funny. I suggest you see their video first, then decided if you want to go. The food though was good! Video link:

Dick's is known for the brazen attitudes of it's servers. They sit down at your table, give you a hard time, make jokes......The only problem is.....IT"S NOT FUNNY!!!!! The joke gets old in 30 seconds, but the servers don't stop. And forget about going back again....why submit yourself to that??

It's a shame too, the food is good, and the establishment is nice. Unfortunatly, what the proprietors fail to understand, is that people go out to relax and socialize. They don't need unecessary banter.

Dick's is a very average bar--by no means a bad place to hang, but not the most happening bar in SD. Drink prices are average, but the draft beer tastes really watered down. They occasionally have decent live music. The clientele is a pretty good mix of locals and tourists.

Located in the Gaslamp district, this is right in the heart of downtown San Diego. Because of the location, parking can be a hassle. This is a special sort of place where the waiters are almost purposefully rude to you. If you're looking for a classy place where you'll be treated really well, this is not where you want to be. If you like a little banter, and a little fun, then you're at the right spot! At the entrance they have a lobster tank where you can catch your own lobster. It's kind of tricky, like those machines where you pay a buck to try and grab a teddy bear with a claw that never quite closes all the way. But if you catch the lobster, they cook it for free! This is a fun place to go if you're in for an atypical night of dining.

Dicks Last Resort Resort Restaurant is exactly like its name. You should only go there as a last resort, but that is only because it will be so crowded. If your reservations at another place get messed up, then head on over to dick's because it is a crazy place.
