Waterfront Bar San Diego Changes?

Went to the Waterfront recently for a burger.

Seemed kind of different.

Bun was kind of stale and no condiment tray.

Not horrible, but didn't seem as good as other visits.

Anyone else notice this?

Has there been change of ownership or management?

  1. I know the menu changed several months ago -- the pastrami burger was gone when I went there last.

      Yeah, now that you mentioned it, the menu did seem different.

        Maybe more of a case of bad service and poor product? I've had the condiment tray not make it my way a few times. Of course, the place was packed to the ceiling and I wasn't eating at the bar. Are they just not doing any condiments anymore? Regarding quality, the burger has never been anything to write home about IMO. Stale bread though is almost unforgivable. What day did you eat on? They might have been working on the last of their bread maybe. Haven't noticed any menu chages but it's been about a month and a half since I went last and I don't follow the menu too closely while I'm there.

          Service wasn't bad.

          Could have just been an off day, but the more I think about it, it seemed a few notches down from what I expect from them.

          I am not crazy about the place, but it is normally a good bar burger.

          It wasn't that on my last visit. It was below average.
