Here we have one of the only bars in Irvine -- and conveniently located within walking distance of the perpetually hard-working student population of UCI.
If you go there on your birthday they give you a free slice of tasty cake; but that would hardly make up for the suprisingly mediocre food. The meat (our party ordered chicken and beef dishes) was really dry, which is extremely disappointing considering the prices you pay. And food that was cooked correctly, well, just didn't taste that good (I'd blame some questionable herb & spice combinations). Karl Strauss, Newport Brewing Co., The Yardhouse, BJs...they're all better options!
I have heard from others, however, that Steelhead's pizza is good. The fries, too, were fairly decent. If I were forced to return, I'd limit myself to those particular foods.
