A group of us got together for a meal and long conversations. Our waitress was really cool, and looked after us very well. The beer available was plentiful, and the food was tasty.

We stopped here and it's not much to look at from the outside but when you get inside it's just as plain. The food selection was unique, the beer was good and the servers are great. That's what was worth the visit.

We dropped by on a Sunday, aware that the place was crowded with sports fans. We were two people over 50 and three adult children. As busy as it was, we were ignored by the waitress until we asked for menus. We had to request...More

We tried this place for dinner and were awed by the selection of beers. Pretty much anything you could want on tap. The food was quite good too. All in all, a very pleasant dinner experience.

We came here before a concert at San Diego State. First off, they have a great beer selection and a full bar. We're vegetarians so we tried the veggie buffalo wings and they were excellent. We also ordered the nachos without the meat and they...More

We didn't eat here but the pizza smelled so good. Great beer selection and friendly bartender. Kind of a casual sports bar.

Sundays during football season loud. If you like that kind of thing, go for it. But if your looking for a quiet place to grab a quick bite, go elsewhere. Food is on the salty side. Their house brews are pretty good.
