  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jun 19, 2014 · by Amber P. from YelpThis place is pretty cool. The bartenders and security here are really friendly and it never takes long to get drinks. The dance floor is way small and can get a little crowded but it's always a good time. We definitely prefer coming here over Tres Gringos next door. Full review

And saw yelp reviews for the neighbor tres gringos that raved about the Tuesday night specials (granted I was here on a Monday and Tuesday for the trip) I enjoyed my time thoroughly at tres gringos.

  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"Jun 15, 2014 · by Joe B. from YelpIts an open bar area they try to make a club at night. The bartenders are cool even a few hot ones. The counters were a bit sticky. One of the bartenders was even taking shots with people. Not a bad spot. Thething I'd say is don't eat the food.I had the birds of Paradise with tots. The tots were good going … Full review

  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"May 09, 2014 · by John B. from Yelp3.5 stars. Seemed like a great place to kick it and watch the sharks game. I was in downtown sj last week because a friend invited me to watch game 7 of the sharks v kings series. We were deciding where to go and ultimately decided to try this place out. The menu had the usual items such as burgers, … Full review
  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Apr 09, 2014 · by chad c. from YelpGreat place to watch a game and grab a drink. Probably the most underrated food scene in downtown sj. Can't go wrong with any combination of sliders and tots.They've also stepped up the craft brew game and have a good selection that can fit your mood. The bar staff are also helpful in finding you a drink Full review
  • Rating: 2.0 out of 5"Apr 04, 2014 · by Kevin K. from YelpI gave it a two star for the fact that it had a dance floor and the overall layout was pretty nice. Took away three stars because the bartender gave me the wrong change on three of my orders. The fact that I never received too much money and my change was always$1-$2 short made me feel it was intentional. Full review
  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Mar 25, 2014 · by Shawn M. from YelpSo I can't recommend coming here at night.This place has no identity. It runs empty a lot of the time. Bartenders are nice, but they over pour like crazy (you decide if that's good or bad). The dance floor gets super awkward here. Just a bunch of dudes dancing. The music is all 90-00's hip hop, which is … Full review

  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Feb 26, 2014 · by Stephanie D. from YelpA cover charge? At a typically college bar with poor college students... just no. Bar and Grill is on the map because it's in the same vicinity as all of the other bars.It's not usually one of my favorites but I was out with friends who wanted to dance and this is one of the few bars that has a dance floor.
