The Vibe

The Vibe

We’re located inside a restored, brick-walled 1926-era building on Coronado Island, and with nearly twenty 75” flat screen TVs, every seat is the best seat in the house – the perfect way to watch the big weekend game on a (really) big screen.

At Nicky Rotten’s, we’re proud to call ourselves part of this awesome Coronado community in San Diego – we love locals, and we want to meet you! Come and try your hand at our Ultimate Burger Challenge (if you dare!), or just hang out on our dog-friendly patio with your four-legged friend, which boasts an unobstructed view of the San Diego Bay and the downtown skyline.

About Us

Our Food

Say goodbye to the greasy, shame-inducing bar food of years past. We spent years crafting the ultimate menu, which is focused on delicious, well-made, and locally sourced comfort food.

All of our burgers are made with Certified Angus Beef, and our chicken tenders are battered twice to achieve that ultimate golden perfection (we know you know what we’re talking about!). And because we know how good some crispy fries or beer-battered wings can be after a long day, we made sure our menu has a little something for everyone.

We take great pride in catering to the health conscious, or those with dietary restrictions: we offer vegan and gluten-free alternatives, and can make changes to pretty much anything on the menu.
