Like many San Juan Capistrano watering holes, this one embraces local history. Located across the street from the home of venerable Orange County justice of the peace Richard Egan, El Adobe features a cozy room to get a cool drink. The interior has the feel of an authentic turn-of-the-century adobe, with its plaster walls and exposed wood-beam roof. The Adobe also pays homage to Southern California history by hanging a Mexican Tricolor next to the Stars and Stripes. The ornate wood bar offers a full complement of wines, liquors and beers, the latter served in large schooners. The favorite Mexican restaurant of el Presidente Richard Nixon. Stop by the presidential booth, and order the President's Choice (guacamole, chile relleno, chicken enchilada, beef taco, Spanish rice and refried beans).
The food and the service in the "restaurant" is great. However, the cocktail lounge frequently has a "gang" presence who harass other patrons, especially other hispanic patrons who are not gang members; not a friendly/relaxing environment.
...and a fine fish restaurant, right in the heart of the financial district. It hasn't been in this same location since 1849, but it's been a part of the fabric of San Francisco for ever. Worth a visit, definitely.
My father in law loves this restaurant. When we lived in SF, we would always stop in here for dinner when he visited. Classic food and service. Very Wall Street feel to the ambiance and the crowd, just 3000+ miles off route. Definitely worth a stop, particularly for lunch.
