Stopped by to watch the St. Patricks Day festivities, ordered a sampling from their "Smalls" part of the menu (biscuits with soft butter and honey, hot crab dip, shrimp & grits, duck fat fries), along with a Smoked Old Fashioned . Delicious!

Located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter of Downtown San Diego, Searsucker is a nationally recognized social dining concept that encourages guests to come early, and stay late. Menus are both serious and fun, with creative twists on New American Classics for Weekend Brunch, Weekday Lunch, Dinner and Happy Hour. Dishes range from shared plates and small bites ideal for the whole table, to farm and ocean dishes that you’ll want to keep all to yourself. Inspired by the simplicity, relaxed and feel-good vibe of the seersucker fabric, Searsucker offers a space that invites patrons to relax and enjoy. The airy design features a glass enclosed kitchen, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a lively bar area. Patrons can watch the action, chat without boundaries and feel as if they’re at a friend’s dinner party rather than a restaurant--so come early, and stay late!
