About us

A staple of the La Mesa community for half a century, now under new ownership, historic Charcoal House Restaurant is bringing the traditional downtown Steakhouse experience back to the Mount Helix area. Featuring our choice-cut steaks and famous prime rib, great appetizers, sandwiches, cocktails, wine, and desserts, there’s a taste for everyone! We have renovated our dining room and expanded our patio to provide a new dining experience unparalleled in the East County!

Our 25% OFF HAPPY HOUR apps and drinks is from 3-7pm everyday of the week and it’s a taste of the old with a modern twist. Visit our website, and follow us on all social platforms for news and updates.
