"A dear friend from high school and I saw each other for the first time in 40 years. So even though we didn't order a lot of food, Allie, our server, was FANTASTIC! She didn't pressure us at all, and we were able to relax, chitchat, and enjoy our snacks. We had a great time!"

"We came to San Diego for my birthday. We picked World famous from Trip advisor . We got there early because we wanted to look around to see the ocean and be sure to find parking. The parking is the only negative . They found us a table early. The view was good. The food was great. The waitress was awesome. The price was good. It made for a wonderful birthday. Thank you. You are definitely on our list if we come this way again. And we will definitely recommend you to others"

"Bacon wrapped scallops were mediocre and steak salad wasn't the best. Ordered it cooked medium and many pieces were closer to rare. Also was so stringy, it was difficult to cut and chew. Servers were nice and friendly. Hostess needs to brush up on customer service skills."

"We had one breakfast, and two dinners while visiting in April. We enjoyed the variety on the menu, and were never disappointed with our selection. Reservations were promptly kept. The wait staff were courteous, prompt, and well informed on the menu.
This is the kind of place you look forward to retuning to on the next visit."

"I've dined here many times and I always enjoy myself. It's on the boardwalk right by the ocean and it was a beautiful day. We both had the Cobb salad which was very good. Sort of an updated version. Our waitress was great and very helpful."

"If you are in the touristy Pacific Beach area, you can do worse than World Famous. While the decor leaves a lot to be desired, the food, margaritas, and views of the beach are worth a stop. I'd recommend timing your dinner visit around sunset."

"Great seafood at terrific prices. Wish the portions were larger though. Recommend making reservations before going. It gets really busy during lunch and dinner."

"Been going to World Famous for thirty years.
This time it was very disappointing .
Warm spinach salad was Cold very little spinach !
My scallops were cold the bacon wrapped around the scallops was cold .
Only one person out of the party of four was happy with her dinner . this was her visit to World Famous.
I hope the reason was because of Spring Break crowd although that should not effect a restaurant quality that has been around as long as World Famous.
Service was great!

"This Pacific Beach restaurant was a great last minute find! Located seconds from the sand and waves, we were welcomed by a friendly staff and seated immediately with a beautiful ocean view.
They let me customize my meal and didn't charge a crazy up charge for doing so. I wanted fillet minion as well as lobster but they weren't listed on the menu together. They changed me approx 30.00 for the meal which included my spinach salad and rice as well!
Our meal was great, the drinks from the bar were very tasty and the cream brûlée scrupulous. Oh yeah and out meal was just under $100.00.
You won't be disappointed if you chose to dine here!"
