The possibilities are endless; diners can create tacos, salads, plates, or sandwiches. Guests can also choose from favorites like scallops or coconut shrimp. Each location is both family and dog-friendly!
Mavericks Beach Club
San Diego’s one-stop spot is Mavericks Beach Club in Pacific Beach. The multi-level entertainment complex features over 38 TVs, along with daily entertainment including comedy shows, trivia nights, doggy events, and more. The menu at Mavericks is filled with some of San Diego’s best seafood entrees like the citrus shrimp bowl or mahi mahi tostados. The best part? Mavericks pays homage to California’s largest surf break, capturing and celebrating California’s infectious beach and surf culture. It’s the perfect place to chill after a day spent splashing around San Diego.
Situated in Downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter’s staple Italian restaurant Operacaffe is beloved for the best crave-worthy entrée specialties, such as ravioli aragosta, featuring homemade pasta stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach, and bathed in a light pink sauce with artichokes and lobster meat. If ravioli isn’t your meal, sample the Tortelli di Granchio—homemade jumbo tortellini stuffed with Alaskan king crab and shrimp in a buttery thyme, rosemary, sage, and shallot sauce cooked with a touch of cream.
The popular eatery also offers an array of freshly baked cookies. Treat yourself to mini tarts with your choice of filling (jam, custard, nuts, chocolate, or fruit), as well as chocolate-dipped cookies made with your choice of almond paste or shortbread, among other baked creations.
