Seems like every place I go I can find the following: light beer, IPA, Double IPA, Stout, Red ale, pale ale and a session or seasonal new. The best beer here was the light beer and that's nut usually the case. We didn't eat but it looked like bar food I have seen before.

Our last night and we wanted to try a local brewery. This was close. The building is interesting and once a fire station. There was an unpleasant smell inside. We sat in the bar area. The bartender was friendly and did double duty as a server. We tried their beer and had appetizers. The beer was ok and limited selection.... More

A smaller neighborhood brewpub with good food and drink, Red Car Brewery is a less visible member of the Los Angeles beer scene. Tucked away in the suburb of Torrance, Red Car brews beer onsite and serves some tasty food in the midst of a casual atmosphere. Red Car Brewing is a laid- back place and upon entering, the first...

If you are going there for a business lunch I suggest you make a reservation since it is very busy at lunchtime. It is reasonably priced with a good variety of food and good service.

Red Car Brewery provides a great atmosphere for you to enjoy the company of your friends and family. The food is a bit heavy, but tasty with moderately sized portions. The beer is average

If you like BJ's Restaurants but prefer it in a smaller setting, Red Car fits the bill. Great selection of food including pasta, pizza and burgers. Best of all, they have their own mini sports bar partitioned off from the main dining area and brew their own craft beers. Price of their food and beer is just right and the... More

I've been here several times with the family and my basketball team. Very good beer brewed on the premises, a nice mix of different types. One drawback is they are often out of one or more of them. Food is good, its not what I would call fine dining but good tasting and reasonably priced. Service is so-so, they seem... More

Stopped here for dinner on first night in Torrance. Place was not busy on a Sunday night. very appropriate for kids. Ordered the South of the Border pizza, pastrami sandwich, and the 5 cheese macaroni. Loved the pizza. Great flavor and a good crust.
