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.

The beer choices are superb. The food is great too. I've tried several pizzas, and they were all good and worthy of ordering again. I love that they have cherry beers (or other slightly girly beers) on tap for the ladies. I think this is one of the best restaurants in San Marcos, and I hope they stay around.

Mac and Cheese is crazy good. Salads are fresh and crisp. Nice beer selection. Went early Saturday afternoon,started to get very busy. A little noisy but manageable with a beer or two. Already planning our next visit during happy hour.

We heard about this place from our son, so when we came to San Diego, we had to stop by for dinner. We were quite impressed with the vast selection of local San Diego craft beer and very happy to see Mac and cheese on the menu. With the cold weather, a big bowl of mac and cheese hit the... More

we stumbled upon this, as we where in the area. We where hungry and thirsty. It's kind of hard to find as it is in the back. We had some really good comfort food and decent beer. I will definitely go back next time I'm in the area.
