This is a San Diego institution! A must-stop for all beach days in PB!!
Absolutely done with this place. Wife and I come here almost every other Monday and enjoy the beach view and drinks. Have recently discovered though....how much the ownership and employees could give a crap about customer loyalty. Owner....manager..... and he spoke to me...cares more about his liquor license.
Cannot smoke a fake e-cig on the patio???? Bouncer said "nope" NOT ALLOWED. The reasoning....gofigure....."you can put drugs in those". Wife and I are over 50...responsible...and would not even know how to do that....however...Management and bouncers had absolutely no problem with cigarette smoke all around with children....wish I took a photo...there was a mom with a child no more than 1 year old and a table next to us from Sacramento smoking....hummmm no one in Management told them to put the ciggys out....WTF. This sooooo much reminds me of the IGNORANCE...seen in the 60's when someone said..."if you part your hair in the middle you must be a pot smoker"....or that "smokng pot leads to increased drug use." I dont do any drugs....and I am absolutely appalled by the ignorance that this establishment displays to its loyal customer base....Last thing the Manager / Owner said was for me to "take it up with Congress" holy crap....they haven't even ruled on it yet ya dumb twit!
Was once a great place that lives on its reputation...now....due to a profound ignorance they have truly arrived at the height of conceit where their philosophy is...."We would rather take your tourist dollars once than have to work hard at getting it twice"
Really like the view. Can hit this place after being on the beach all day. Fav.
Picturesque beach bar – It's almost like something out of a movie. This beach bar has a big patio overlooking the ocean. If you come to visit San Diego and happened to be in Pacific Beach, I completely recommend stopping by for a burger and a beer, you won't be disappointed.
The best place for day drinking in SD - any day! – So it's not a fancy place, it serves burgers, fries, maybe a few sandwiches.......it does have a full bar though and that is not what the place is known for. What gives this place 5 stars is because if you are in San Diego, and it's sunny, Lahaina is open and it's bartenders are ready to get you drunk! It's literally ON the beach, and has cheap drinks. It's great for people watching and that 8am beer and egg sandwich if you are needing it. (And I have needed it.) If it's sunny out don't bother thinking you are going to get a table because you won't - every other slacker in PB is already there! But if you want to drink in the sun, on a deck, this is the place to go! Not a fancy crowd like Tower 23, a little more casual which can be good and bad depending on what you feel like that day.........but fun fun fun nevertheless.........I've had some of my favorite day drinking here............. And yes the bartenders and door guys know me buy name....that is how often I go. The only reason it loses a star is for the fact that beach parking sucks and it's cash only which has caused me on more than one occasion to max out my withdrawal limit at the ATM. Also sometimes it's so crowded I can't move......but that only makes it the place to be, right? Now I'm getting nostalgic for San Diego lazy Mondays.................. ...
best place for the hard rock green flash – this place is awesome. my home away from home for the sunsets. very full on Sundays and i am sure it will get crazy in summer.
great (rocky) music, reasonable prices, good food and the perfect view over the boardwalk with "Slo-Mo" gliding by. and obviously every night a glorious sunset. I can't wait for DST to enjoy it an hour longer every day.
There isn't a better outdoor patio in San Diego than Lahaina's, which is an arm's length from the boardwalk. – In Short
This tiny watering hole is a rarity among beachside bars. With the patio just a mere bottlecap's throw from the boardwalk, it's one of the few beach bars where you can actually high-five bladers, boarders and joggers as they pass by. Most days, this shack is relegated to a no-nonsense breakfast and lunch menu of omlettes, sandwiches and salads. On weekends (and everyday during summer), it's a post-beach cocktails crowd.
