    Great pub with a lot of space. When it's crowded, the staff do a great job with getting drinks and food around. I kind of prefer it more during the quiet days, when you can cozy up to the bar for a pint with ease.

    This is sort of an Irish Mission Dive Bar meets a Fusion Diner Sports bar.

    Phoenix is a couple of steps up from your classic Mission Dive Bar, there aren't enough hipsters and dingy decor for that, albeit there are plenty of skinny jeans and knit caps hiding bad hair.

    It is a fun and friendly place, with the bartenders down home, and our waitress in the back was superbly professional and really nice, which is remarkable considering she was serving a group of loosely confederated real and virtually friended individuals that morphed between 10 and 30 through the night, who were partly from the Bay, and partly from San Diego, thanks to Mariela.

    Besides the long bar on the left, there are a lot of tables to get your grub sit-down style on the right and in the rear. They serve what one might call Irish-Cali sports bar comfort food. So you can get some traditional favorites from the Isles, like Bangers and Mash, Shepherd's pie and the like, or you can go Cali Sports bar with Buffalo Wings, Burgers and Sliders.

    Then there are the unique "Fusion" dishes fit for a half Irish, half Cali person who goes to major sporting events wanting Nachos Irish style, with potatoes instead of chips.

    Good fun place to gather that is relaxed with decent food and libations.

    First to Review

    My cousin and I went looking for a bar in the Mission and we found Phoenix. We walked in and she ordered Stella from the tap. All of their tap beers are easily 20 oz pours. I think there's even a sign up that says just that. I just had a sip of her beer since she wasn't planning on drinking it all. We waited a while and watched some of the games that were playing on the multitude of flat screens.

    I perused the menu items. They had a lot of food items that really sounded good like lamb stew, shepherd's pie, and burgers. I saw some of them brought out to other patrons and thought that the portions were quite large so it might be worth your time and money. The patrons looked really happy with their choices so it must be a worthwhile place to spend an afternoon eating and drinking at. Someone even ordered a rather large, but tasty looking salad.

    Unfortunately, we had dinner plans elsewhere so we didn't partake in any food. There were a few rowdy guests doing a Sunday-Funday bachelorette party complete with questionable costumes. The bartenders were gracious, speedy, and really nice people. What a cool place in such a chic neighborhood!
