San Diego Restaurants

The Field

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

A family-run pub decorated with paraphernalia from an Irish farm, the Field has character to spare. Diners enjoy solid meals of Irish stew, corned beef and cabbage, Gaelic steak with an Irish whisky–peppercorn sauce or, best of all, the boxty: a lacy but substantial potato pancake served crisp and hot with such fillings as sage-accented chicken or Irish bacon and cheese. As the evening wears on, the crowd grows younger, livelier, louder, and sometimes rowdier.

A traditional Irish breakfast is served on weekends, and there's dancing and live music many nights of the week. The terrace is a particularly popular spot for dinner.

First Pint of the Day

Had 2 Blacksmiths after arriving in San Diego. Bartender was Irish and the young man sitting next to me at the bar was from Ireland was well. He was watching soccer (football as he called it) and was helping my husband & I understand the game. Had a lovely time.

Authentically Irish in San Diego

The boxty dishes are fantastic as well as the corned beef sandwich. Excellent Irish atmosphere and staff. Outstanding bar service. The Field is the best Irish pub in Southern California!
