The Coronado Brewing Company is a neat brewery with some really great beers. It was super packed on a Sunday and we waited about 30 minutes for a table at lunch time. We didn't mind the wait as we sampled the different brews. Once we were seated, the service was prompt but I don't recall her ever coming back to... More

Happy hour snacks: grilled wahoo fish taco a la carte ($3.50) are huge and tasty; garlic fries ($5.50) are garlicky! Happy hour is Monday - Friday 14:00 to 18:00. Beer is fab! They do 4oz and 8oz tasters. I love craft beer and recommend the Idiot IPA. If you have an empty growler take it along and have it filled!... More

Four of us went to Coronado Brewing on Jan 12, which was the night of the National College football game. It was fairly crowded, but the wait was not long. Service was prompt and proper. No complaints at all about the service. The food was not good. Might have been an off night, but none of us enjoyed (or finished)... More

We stopped for lunch while in Coronado. Appreciated help in choosing a beer, the selection is extensive. The sampler would have been a good choice for us. Our pizza and tacos were good. Service is casual but attentive enough and helpful.

Our family enjoyed a lovely off day off peak season meal here. For once we didn't have to wait for a table. We did have to wait for a server. Our meal was good - the lobster mac n cheese, burger, & pepperoni pizza. We also had the pretzel to start. A glass of wine and some good beer capped... More

We planned on going here and showed up 5:30 pm to be sure to get a table, but we still had to wait for 30 minutes. So if you don't want to wait I would recommend that you show up even earlier. This was New Years Day, so it might have been busier than usual for a Thursday. The beer... More

We even stopped by last night (our wedding night!) for a beverage. The many fireplaces an unique floorplan give a level of intimacy and community at the same time. The service is fantastic! We visited 4 times in our short 1-week visit, and seriously made sure it was a stop on our way back to our hotel after our wedding... More

This place is gorgeous. I enjoyed the atmosphere totally. Happy hour starts at 2:00. The restaurant offers many micro brewed beers and snacks during happy hour. I ordered the grilled wahoo fish tacos. They were delicious. I would definitely return the next time I am in the area. My favorite brew was the Orange Wit. It was so refreshing and... More

Decided to stop in here around lunch time for a beer, while in Coronado. Absolutely a neighborhood gem! The craft beer selection was fantastic, as were the bar tenders. The décor of the restaurant is attractive, as well.

From out of town and staying at the Loew's Coronado Bay on the Silver Strand. Coming into town we drove past the Orange Street location but the streets were hectic with people and traffic this day after Xmas. We discovered the newly opened location in Imperial Beach from TripAdvisor (of course, where else?) and it was closer and away from... More
