I went to Typhoon Saloon in Pacific Beach for Labor Day weekend with 16 other people. We wanted to do some catching up with our friends so we decided to meet at 7pm there. There was a lot of room for us and the place was quiet enough for us to hear each other without yelling. The clubbing crowd doesn't come until 10pm. A lot of people don't know this but Typhoon Saloon also serves Fred's menu so if you want more TV screens and a more casual eating room, go there. We ended up staying until past 11pm so we didn't have to pay the $5 cover that starts at 10pm because we were already there. 

For dealing with a group of 17, our server did a fantastic job of taking our drink and food orders during the 3 hour timeframe. I think she was happy we were there too because we were her main event during that time. That means good tips for her. 

In the future, I would come back here again for food and drinks to catch up with friends in the evening. I felt appreciated. Here are a couple of pictures of Typhoon Saloon and their food.
