This place is fun! I didn't have a chance to have the food, but I had the appetizers and they were decent, and on the weekend I went it was packed due to karaoke and people dancing to it. The dance floor is a little small though, but otherwise, a fun time was had!

My Wife and I dined at the Charcoal House last night Sat. Jan 10th.We haven't eaten there in 2 years and always had a good experience until last night. I ordered a rib-eye steak that was very thin like a breakfast steak and over cooked my wife had the calamari which was very chewy like rubber.The service was as bad as the food, the girl watched the football game and came over to the table once after the food was served, needless to say I will never return to have dinner again. I don't know if they changed owners but this was a very bad experience.It was over priced !

The restaurant has been here a long time. They serve very good lunches. Their steaks are to order and I have found their service excellent. The atmosphere was quiet and conducive to good conversation.

TOTAL RIPOFF

Our group went to the Charcoal House recently and went into the bar for some Karaoke. I selected a song from the Karaoke book and submitted my request. Our group of eight started up a bar tab while waiting for my turn at the microphone. When it was my turn, I went up and got the microphone. The DJ asked me ??This isn??t a slow song, is it?? I said it was and he said that I couldn??t do it and to ??give me back the microphone.?

I couldn??t believe what I was hearing. I picked a song out of the book, we rang up a bar bill of over $100 while we waited, and then was told I couldn??t sing the song. How about taking the ??forbidden? songs out of the book so there aren??t any misunderstandings? We ended up leaving early because of the treatment we received. So much for doing what the customers request! The DJ actually sang more songs than everyone in our group combined!!

The only thing more unbelievable is I wrote the Charcoal House owner telling him of our terrible evening. Almost two months later, I have yet to receive a response. Not even a ??Sorry, but that??s the way we do things now? letter.

So if you are looking to pay a lot of money for drinks and Karaoke, have the DJ take the microphone out of your hand on stage, and can only hear the songs the DJ wants you to hear, this is the place for you!! Otherwise, stay away from this place. There are plenty of other Karaoke bars in San Diego County that want to please the customer.
