    Queenstown is a New Zealand-inspired spot with thoroughly San Diegan priorities: patios, burgers and Sunday brunch. The design of this repurposed house ensures that every seat has great-looking views.

    The Salmon croquette is a little creamy for my taste. But a great match with the crispy deep fried shredded onions that i couldn't stop eating.☝🏾️ grainy w/ every bite from the breading..

    This place was utterly fantastic. Service, food and drinks are great. Locals seem to hang out here. No need to dress up. Come as you are whether it's in a suit , jeans, or shorts.

    Had the happy hour sliders and they were great. It's a very chill spot and the staff is nothing but friendly! It's a beautiful and relaxing spot. Will be coming back when I visit San Diego again.

    The pretzel is phenomenal! Add the jalapeño cheese and it's even better. Soup & Sammie is delicious as are the burgers. Nice spot, friendly servers, and a great selection of drinks.

    Definitely trendy. Great burgers with diverse options. Shoestring fries with special sauces hit the spot, but don't sleep on the beet chips that come with the order. Large beer selection.

    Got the Kiwilango burger with avocado at an extra charge. The tortilla chips doesn't have a strong flavor, so thin and crispy makes the burger interesting with every bite.

    The grits is cooked properly w/ the right amount of salt. Poached egg blended well too. A little disapointed on the size of the shrimp. 🤔

    Remember the fabulous little, dark, 1905-Craftsman house at the corner across the street from the Fire House Museum. For years it was a law office and address of a SD Councilman. Well, this is it!

    The $8 happy hour -- six pours of anything on the list, served in a muffin tin -- can't be beat. And of course the portabello fries, as everyone else has said!

    We went Here during Art Walk and while the wait was minimal, the decor top notch, the staff was nice... after ordering two meals to share and two drinks, my friend was still hungry. Close but no cigar

    The sweet potato fries are the best I've ever had. Also I am normally not a pretzel fan but this one is absurdly good w dipping sauces

    Good food, a bit overhyped, but the ambiance is second to few. Think of this place as a sexed up burger joint. The menu is a little convoluted, but the presentation is nice.
