The Embers Grill (3924 W. Point Loma Blvd., 619/222-6877, Sun.–Tues. and Thurs. 11:30 a.m.–9 p.m., Fri.–Sat. 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m., $25–50) offers casual dining to the masses with plenty of patio room for outdoor dining.
Expect sometimes-huge portions of fairly common American dishes with a California twist.
If you’re looking for a lighter meal, order a sandwich, salad, or personal-sized pizza. Embers is also a great place for a full-sized tasty lunch.
