Amazing. Went here not expecting much, but the food was tasty! It was carefully prepared, well presented, and tasty. And it was affordable. Definitely coming back when we're in the area. Service was super nice, too. ;)
So good!! – Best burgers, great beers! Waterfront is the place to be if you want to have great time!!
Found one of the best burgers in San Diego – When I knew I was going to meet an old friend for lunch I asked if he wanted one of the best burgers in town. I told him Hodads in OB, there's nothing better.
He told me, "no way, the best burger in town is The Waterfront Bar in Little Italy". I've lived my whole life in SD and I've never heard of it. I didn't believe him. I thought I knew where to get the best burger. Boy was I wrong. The cheeseburgers are fantastic! They are massive with all the fixings. I can still taste it. I've now changed my favorite hamburger place to The Waterfront.
Downtown's oldest tavern stays local with no-frills fare and a bar staff that remembers your name. – In Short
With large windows and an always-open door that faces bustling Kettner Blvd, this friendly watering hole is a longtime favorite among Downtown's after-work set. Cocktail tables line a few yards of sidewalk out front, and a U-shaped bar takes up the bulk of space inside the salt-cured wooden walls lined with old photos of San Diego's founding tuna fisherman. Regulars order burgers or the famous grilled cheese and choose from several locally brewed ales.
San Diego Classic – Whenever I am suffering from a hangover on a Sunday morning (they open very early) the Waterfront is one of my first places to visit to recuperate. I will hang out on one of the tables overlooking Kettner, order some breakfast and sip on Bloody Mary's till I am somewhat cognizant of my surroundings.
The food is reasonably priced and a value. The service is excellent. My only beef with the place is the lack of parking. But it should be expected since Little Italy is one of the more trendier places to live in San Diego.
You will enjoy your visit here. Just make sure you take your time and talk to the girls behind the counter. They are very friendly and always have a story to tell.
