Good Time Charlie's Restaurant Review

: This Pacific Beach venue is part bar and part restaurant, and family-friendly until around 8 p.m. when it shifts over into bar mode. It’s a good place to watch and discuss sports while enjoying appetizers like calamari strips and spicy Buffalo wings, or a full meal from the menu of burgers, stir-fries, sandwiches and pastas. We like the tacos, too. Two happy hours take place daily; Wednesday and Thursday bring steak specials and Taco Tuesday is a hit. It’s also a fine spot for late-night snacks and drinks, explaining why it’s often referred to as "Last Call Charlie’s."
