Great place for beer and kabobs. Good happy hour, wide beer selection and great kabobs. Reasonably priced. If you sit on the patio you get a bit of the sunset.

My husband and I started our meal with warm pita and hummus trio - nothing like you have eaten before, One was a regular chickpea, one tasted like a basil hummus and the last one tasted like a red pepper hummus. They were all delicious. We split for our entree which was one Herb Marinated Chicken, one Garlic Pepper Shrimp and one Pomegranate Sirloin kebabs served with Israeli couscous tabbouleh. Yum. Great selection of local microbrewed beers.

We ate at California Kebab & Beer Garden twice during our stay in Pacific Beach. It’s a great place that really embodies that cool California vibe. Located about 50 feet from the Boardwalk along Pacific Beach on the upper story of a building on the corner of Mission Boulevard and Pacific Beach Drive. The music is great, spinning lots of great tracks from the 60’s through today. The decor includes 12” vinyl album covers that will bring back memories for many. There is indoor and outdoor seating, so you can find a spot that works for you. The view out to the Pacific Ocean and the ocean breezes top it off.

The food is great, with Kebabs being their specialty of course. The menu choices include typically healthy California selections, as well as more traditional beer garden selections. They don’t really offer table service, so you may be disappointed if you wait to be served. You’ll do much better just going up to the counter for your selections. The food will be delivered to your table, but it can be a bit slow.

More importantly, the restaurant is also home to nanobrewery that cranks out some excellent IPA and Ales. I highly recommend the Pignose IPA! They have a rotating menu of beers brewed at the restaurant and brought in from other breweries. For a beer lover, you would have a hard time finding a better spot!

If you’re in Pacific Beach and looking for a great spot for lunch or dinner that’s close to the beach, this is a great place!
