Excellent Beer Selection and Yummy Food

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... read more

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 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.

We came across this place last minute, when our first dining option didn't work out, and I am so glad we did! It was a great experience. The atmosphere was warm and fun. It was a Saturday night, so it was pretty packed, but it wasn't overwhelming. The staff was very helpful and nice. It was Beer Week, so they... More

My family and I stopped by here in early November for dinner, and the place was packed-- very busy on a Saturday night, which was a great sign. When we were seated, we were not disappointed-- the selection of beers was outstanding, and the food was very good. Do NOT miss the macaroni and cheese-- rich and indulgent and worth... More

Sublime is an informal place that serves great craft beers, both from fantastic local breweries and others further away. Menu is simple but has many tasty healthy choices.

We enjoyed it so much that we brought the kids the next time. There is so much variety for everyone, including the beer. The Mac n cheese, hamburgers, fish n chips, salads were to die for. Will definitely go back to try more of the menu. It can get a little loud, but I'm sure it would be fun to... More

I really like this establishment. The beer choices are excellent, and they change regularly, which can be good or not so good, depending on your tastes. I like the change because it give me an opportunity to drink beers I normally might not. On the other hand, I drink Ballast Point Sculpin 7 out of 10 times I go there.... More
