They have a good mix of local craft beers as well as many from across the country that we do not normally get. They are known for their Mac & Cheese and it is the other reason we come. My favorite is... More

This is one of our favorite local restaurants. The atmosphere is casual but the food is great quality and really delicious, with lots of yummy burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, salads, and mac & cheeses to try. I also love that they have alternative options for sides other than the standard french fries (my favorite side is the cucumber & tomato salad).... More

Great choice of microbrews. Wait staff can recommend something if they don't have your favorite. Burgers are top notch and well prepared.

San Diego is craft brew heaven, and Sublime has hit the sweet spot of brews and food served up in an appealing family friendly, date friendly package. Their huge set of beer taps makes choosing your brew an adventure, so take advantage for their offer to let you taste a sip before you choose, or go wild and select several... More

I love to sample a flight of Belgian style beers from all over. My favorite on the menu is the mussels and French fries. The cheese plate is also great. At peak times the restaurant can be very noisy. It is a very friendly family place.
