Granted, we knew nothing about this place, except our favorite restaurant around the corner was closed at this hour. We did not know where else to go. This is our first and last time here! The pizza was very overpriced--$1.25 for each veggie on top of the base cheese pizza. The dough was soggy and there weren't enough extras on... More

Heard some good things about the place so we went for dinner. It ok nothing special. Good place for younger crowd. Picnic benches were used for most of the seating. Food was pretty good was not in the mood for a beer. My wife ordered a beer she didn't think it was very good and ordered something else. More of... More

Great bar food with a twist. Incredible beer menu and the server definitely knew her brews. I had the First Kiss pizza and a small one was plenty for two people. My son had the Sublime Mac and although it was great-it was really, really rich! We went on a Saturday at 1130am and got right in.

I ordered the Hawaiian Burger because it sounded great with it's description "Roasted pineapple, caramelized onion, applewood smoked bacon, bacon-pineapple spread.' But came out as a grey colored burger that was crumbling and tasted bloody/metallic. The pineapple was warmed chunks not a grilled ring like I had imagined. The stuffed peppers were good but you only get 4 in the... More

We keep coming back to this restaurant because of its proximity to the theatre next door and they are open late. Every time we return (at least 8 times), there is confusion over where to seat us and we are left waiting at the hostess station for unreasonable amounts of time when it is obvious there are many empty tables....

Stopped in here for dinner and drinks with friends who live in the area. Beer selection is good and the beers themselves were good but our waiter did mix up who ordered what and couldn't seem to figure out what beer was what. Brought several wrong beers. It was busy so no big deal, we still had a pleasant time... More

This is a great addition to San Marcos. They have an expansive selection of beers on tap and you can build your own beer flight. The food is good, though heavy, and the servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the beer. The beer mussels are excellent and loved the "Get Figgy With It" pizza (figs, prosciutto, balsamic glaze, arugula, parmesan,... More

Although we live right up the street, we had never been to Sublime. However, friends kept mentioning it, so I thought it was worth a try. We went on a Friday night around 8:00; it was packed! Of course, that is a good sign! The first thing I noticed-it is SO loud! Don't go there for a quiet date night... More

Good was delicious. We ordered the Infatuation Mac n cheese with truffle oil and the Slap Yo Mama burger. Botha were worth the 30 min wait. While we Waites we ordered beers at the bar. My husbands beer was undrinkable due to the lines not being cleared from the previous keg. Service was slow but very friendly.
