Nice location. Great selection of beers. Server gave few samples to match the food we ordered. Service was excellent. Good place to take the family.

Staying down the street so I walked up here to dinner. Only two blocks (and a BIG hill from the Cove, but it was down hill after the big dinner). It was fairly busy but I found a tall table in the bar area. I had the Wednesday meatloaf. MMMM ! Mom's was better but this one was pretty darned... More

Despite this being a chain, they have really good craft beers and many types to choose from. Food was good, but nothing particularly special. If you want good food, lots of beer options and a reasonable price, there's probably no better place in LA Jolla.

Had a late dinner here and feasted on a burger, salad, and beer. The beer selection is great and they provide samplers to pick your favorites. The staff was great and even the manager came by our table to see how we liked our food!

Very good hamburgers (too big for me) and a wide selection of beers. The place is very nice and the service is really good.

I visited this restaurant twice during my visit. The beer options are greater than any other local restaurant (unless you venture to a brewery). The menu is pretty extensive with just about something for everyone. I had the turkey burger which was very good and more than I can eat. It was rather messy, leaving me to use a fork... More
