Unless you know someone who works there, good luck getting a drink! Flagging down a waitress and/or bartender will only slow your service. The food lacks variety, and they seem to use the same bread for every sandwich/entree. And its NOT good. But, it seems to be one of the last bars in the Encinitas area where you can grab a beer and watch a game without the constant crying of babies or toddlers running around. Chief's and Tidewater have now become synonomous with Chuck-E-Cheese's.
Also, they have lost their entertainment license (or rather, never properly held one in the first place) so there are no more weekend DJ's, and they even have "No Dancing" signs posted throughout the establishment. Hello Footloose!
Pros: Many TV's for sports games
Cons: Rude bartenders. Lack variety in food. No DJ's
