We were in the area and wanted somewhere with outdoor seating and local microbrewery beers. This place ticked those boxes as it has a roof terrace that you can see the beach from and they also offer a beer flight of house beers. We spent a couple of hours here enjoying the happy hour specials. We never ordered food but... More

They have an adequate craft beer menu, including a few of their own. It was buzzing with people when we walked in but we didn’t have to wait for a high-top table in the bar area. The waitress immediately recommended a beer to us and we were not disappointed with the choices. Weren’t real hungry so we shared a chorizo... More

What a cool place and menu. From fish tacos to excellent burgers. I recommend the Aztec Burger, the mango chutney was a little hot but very flavorful and totally unique.

I cannot think of a better title and completely agree with the previous review! We went to Pacific Beach AleHouse as a family with one small child. The food was simply superb and so was the selection of craft beers. The roof top was spectacular at sunset! I only wish the deck was larger and less crowded for a more... More

Stopped in with friends. as happy hour was ending. Very busy Saturday night with party on. Didn't have a reservation. Ended up at a hightop table in the bar. Rowdy crowd bumping into you and splashing/spilling but great fish tacos, burgers and craft beers.

Stayed at PB for a few days visiting family. Spent last night on rooftop bar at the Alehouse watching sun go down indulging in 'all you can eat shrimp' - perfect SoCal experience. Good atmosphere, great drinks and good what more could you ask for.

We stayed in Mission Beach on our San Diego visit and rode our bikes about a mile down the board walk to each at Pacific Beach Alehouse. There's a rooftop bar but it was much too cold/windy to eat up there with the kiddos. I liked the atmosphere of the inside pub/dining room. We were seated at a large table... More

Generous portions, tasty eats! A good place to eat in Pacific Beach. Had the flat bread pizza and it was more than I could eat!

Just had dinner this evening, Taco Tuesday beer special is a rip off, advertises 14oz and a 12 oz beer wouldn't fill that plastic glass. Dinner was mediocre at best, the Lobster Mac and cheese was blah, noodles were hard and burnt. Tacos were just ok. Find a different place to eat, we wish we had.
