Dig the food and the atmosphere. Wish the IPA bar would be open all day every day, but maybe it's for the best. Great spot to unwind solo or with a group.

What Tiger! Tiger! does so well (as does Lee Chase's flagship spot, Blind Lady Alehouse) is blend a tavern with a restaurant. Tiger is well organized, with a long bar to the left and several long, picnic style tables to the right. There are a few high, long tables- every spot encourages a social experience, but you can certainly still have a private, romantic dinner if you wish.

The beer list is always solid (one of the best SD Dogfish Head locations) and occasionally superb (especially during beer week and anniversary week). New IPA only 4-tap bar out back only helps with this.

The food is among the best in San Diego. Wood-fired oven used to create awesome dishes ranging from meaty to vegan. We have tried most of the menu (and specials, which change often) and have never been disappointed. Sunday brunch is among the top 2 or 3 in SD.

Tiger! Tiger! is one of the better beer bars in San Diego. They've got outdoor seating if it interests you, a small bar and a plethora of picnic tables. I've been here many times and each time their beer selection is very nice and different enough from Blind Lady (their sister location) that it's worth checking Tap Hunter if you're not sure of which one you want to go to.

The food here, in my opinion, is better than Blind Lady's by a long shot. The sandwiches are absolutely insane! Delicious! Their bread has a tendency to be really hard though, so definitely try to cut the sandwich into smaller pieces if at all possible. Makes it much easier to handle.

This is practically the perfect place to start a 30th St pub crawl. Hit up Coffee & Tea Collective for an espresso beforehand so you can just stay up all night and hit all of the 30th St locations.

Medium-large inside bar area with a smallish outside area out back.

Selection was a little disappointing as was the service. Guy tried to rush me to order when there was no one there and I really hadn't taken a long time.

Inside was too dark and the bar setup was lackluster.

Was such a disappointment after I enjoyed my time at the Blind Lady so much. Really shows regardless if a place is owned by the same people that your staff really makes a place worthwhile to comeback to.

Also the food and beer selections were sub-par compared to the sister location.

We wanted to go to Blind Lady for lunch but it was closed for a private fundraiser so we decided to try their sister restaurant Tiger! Tiger!. We were not disappointed. Love the style of this place. Rustic comfort. Belle and Sebastion music playing. Long plank tables with benches, cement floors. Great beer selection, my son and husband said it was excellent! I thought the food was also very good. Banh Mi Pork Belly sandwich was fantastic. I had a vegan grilled cheese which was very good. I always appreciate restaurants that have anything vegan. The Brat sandwich also looked really good. We would go there again and might even pick it over Blind Lady which is my favorite S.D. pizza stop.
