Don't be fooled. Might not look like much but the burger and club sandwiches are special. Shelley at the bar was fantastic, not only fabulous bartender but also a really great tour guide.

We like many on these reviews, wanted a local bar for a quick drink. The bartender was very good, she knew the names of certain cocktails that our friends wanted and it was not the place that you wool expect cocktails to be served. The selection of beer was good and there was a good food menu. The chips and... More

We went there because of other reviews. Definitely a "hole in the wall", but good music and great burgers. And what place gives you free pool and foosball? We would go back.

If you like hanging out around tweakers then this your place. Bar has pool tables, cold beer and lovely bartenders that are a pleasure to talk to however the patrons leave much to be desired.

My boyfriend and I were in next door Dana Point and in search of a local dive bar. I was excited reading about the Foosball table and beer pong so we took a lyft and checked it out. The bar was our style but the service was not. The female bartender was extremely unattentive and not very nice. I asked... More

We were in town on business and we like to go to the places the locals go, not the tourist destinations. Mulligan's is one street in from El Camino Real, and it was definitely a local hang-out. We were made to feel welcome. Depending on the night you go, there may or may not be a full menu available. Bartenders... More

Visiting from DC and wanted to tie one on at a local dive bar. Thanks to my cousin, who lives in town, we found the perfect spot. The joint wasn't crowded and the people there were awesome. There were billiard tables, a ping pong table, and foosball table. The jukebox was pumping some good tunes. The bar tender Elsa was... More
