This is really a bar that serves food rather than a restaurant. The Russian Roulette chicken wings were highly entertaining though, and the staff were all really nice.

We stopped here for a lunch beer on a Sunday after the La Jolla Farm Market. The beer was good, the food was not worth a return visit. I think this might be a fine place to meet friends to watch a game in the evening, but certainly not a place for lunch or dinner.

I live nearby and was hoping to call this my home spot for a cold beer. While I like the look/feel of it, I am torn because they seem to be a little screwed up on the marketing side of things. My wife doesn't drink beer, so she would come if there was something else that attracted her...like a decent... More

They have multiple beers, great burgers, and great service. The guy that help us was friendly, he tend to us, and was very cordial. They offer a vegetarian burger along with chicken and beef. Great appetizers and the ambient was very chill.

We decided to give this place a try, knowing we were going to be in the area. I called and made a reservation, the gentleman that took my reservation took all my DNA, very detailed. When we arrived there was a sign "seat yourself". I found odd. Anyway, Craig sat us and waited on us. Service was excellent, ambience was... More

A fun place in La Jolla. The food is good and they have a micro brewery on site. Enjoy the beer, your favorite team and good food.

The beer is fabulous...and that's what we are here for, right. Lots of variety to the menu and the waitress was superb. Fresh veggies and well prepared fish.

This place is good, but the menu has completely changed. We had a good meal/good service, but don't expect to find the menu posted on Trip Advisor!

At a recent wedding I attended in La Jolla there were two events that were hosted here in celebration. The first night they had reserved the whole front patio for the party. We had excellent appetizers. Loved the avocado bacon stack and loved the large selection of house brews and craft brews. The second event was held after the wedding... More

If you enjoy craft beer then this place is well worth a stop when in La Jolla. On a Friday night I was surprised it wasnt packed however was told by a local that it had changed hands a number of times. Atmosphere is nice and I found both the beer and food to be very good! Nice casual atmosphere... More
