Good food and beer

The food was all very good. The beers were delicious. The German chocolate and Blood Orange Wit were our favorites. It was fairly expensive as a meal, but it was in a touristy area.

The beer is what you come to a brewery for, not the food. That being said or written, the beer was good, the food was average. I ordered a pretzel, almost every brewery I have been to, has had pretzels. These were pretty good as were the fries. The burger on the other hand was not that good. Maybe it... More

We stopped for lunch. The place is cool- everywhere in Coronado is cool! The booths were comfy and the food looked good. The waitress didn't have time for us, for questions, or for service. Very disappointing. Waitstaff and servers were in way too much of a hurry. And it wasn't really busy! The caesar side salad was good. The fish... More

You can't visit Coronado without visiting CBC! This restaurant has something for the entire family and a beer for every adult in the family! I consider it a great jewel to our town than the Hotel Del, though the Del does serve a few CBC Beers! My favorites are their fish and chips and their burgers! My favorite beer.....the sampler...

We visited for an early dinner on a Saturday. The restaurant was busy but we only had to wait 15 mins for a table. Lots of beers on tap and it was fun to taste different things. The food on offer was things like burgers, nachos etc. Service was good, beer and food good. Would visit again. (Lots of Coronado... More

We stopped in for lunch and a few beers while in the area for a conference. We were surprised at how good the food was for a brewery. The beer was good too :)

I'm not much of a beer drinker, but they had a very light ale that was very tasty. We went for a couple of drinks one day and then went back for dinner a couple of nights later. The burger was terrific. My husband had the fish tacos. We were seated immediately and the wait staff was very attentive. Next... More

After the wait did not take as long as the host says we were seated and very efficiently served. Staff was friendly especially to our kids and the food (especially the brew burgers) was very nice for this type of food. From the vast beer selection everyone, even the ones who dont like beer, can find something enjoyable. This is... More
