Happy Hour food deals in San Diego?

What are some great happy hour food deals? One of my favorites is at Gulf Coast Grill.

BBQ Ribs
1/2 rack, house smoked, grill finished
with jalapeño BBQ sauce

They use to have these awesome fried chicken wings but the new owners dropped them from the menu.

  1. ichiban sushi in hillcrest has half price on most of their rolls which won't win any awards, but is a great deal for low priced sushi.

    the brigantine & south beach grill for fish tacos

    1. McCormick and Schmidts by the Ballpark on non game days.

      1. Brigantine has a great seafood happy of the best fish taco for $2
        I have had happy hour at Chive and that was really good
        Gaslamp is at McCormicks & Schmicks..some of the cheapest drinks next to Petco!
        Love HH at Gulf Coast Grill too..

          Ill be going to San Diego the end of the month. I have never been, but I have heard alot about Brigantine. Is it close to the Sheraton near the marina?

            It's a cheap cab fare Chef!
            Along Harbor Drive to Pt Loma and then left on Shelter Island drive..

                Gaslamp has some great HH too.

              There are several Brigantine's, all over. There's one in Del Mar, and Shelter Island. It's a chain, but a good one.

              What are the sesame beef skewers and the surf n turf dumplings at Chive like? Thanks for the suggestions! I went to Miami Grille at UTC today.
              The fried chicken wings were really good!

            3. For the more upscale happy hour Laurel (at 5th and Laurel on Banker's Hill) does a 7 For 7 Before 7 special. that would be 7 specialty drinks, 7 appetizers for $7(ea) before 7 PM.

                My favorite Happy Hour food and prices are at AZUL in LaJolla.
                Very easy to have a fully satisfying meal.
                Just the Kobe Burger alone can do that at a good price

                Part of the Brigantine group.

                  My favorite DT is Chive, like Laurel, they have the $6 before 6 and the $7 before 7…good drinks and tasty food.

                  I also like the free filet mignon sandwiches at Donovan’s served daily from 4 to 6.

                  1. re: pbhomey

                    Well, that would make sense. Chive and Laurel have the same owner :-)

                2. I recommend Costa Brava, in PB. Not only do they have the best Spanish food in town (although that's not saying much compared to Ole Madrid and Cafe Sevilla), but they have incredible prices on many tapas (half the normal price) and they have various montaditos for $3. Also, sangria for $2 (pitcher for $10), if that's your thing. And it's not in the Gaslamp.
