Stopped by to enjoy a cold beverage while enjoying downtown Encinitas. Lots of beer on tap, not much of a wine selection. Staff was moderately friendly, yet was on-point with the locals! The menu is not really inspiring and quite pricey. Also, a place that has "garden" in the name, should really have live plants...not plastic!

Open concept. Windows open letting fresh ocean air in. Only stopped in for a glass of wine. Sat at a counter looking out and people watching. Didn't try the food but as a bar it's great

The food I had was excellent. The service was great. Has both patio seating, bar and window seating to watch the passersby.

My wife and I have visited the Bier Garden on several occasions. I once read an issue of San Diego Magazine that gave it a great rating for their bloody Mary's. I would rank them as good to very good but not great. They come with a chaser of beer which is cool but they don't carry beers I'm a... More

They can get very crowded, especially on weekends. One entire wall opens up to the outdoors so if you get cold easily make sure and bring something to keep you warm. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and they have a lot of really good local beers always on tap. Cocktails seem to be so-so from the few we have tried so... More

I have had two experiences at this restaurant and both have been negative. The Hostess is helpful and sweet, the ambiance is low-key and hip, but the service staff is terrible. Our server forgot our drink order multiple times then finally returned to tell us the keg was tapped without any apology. The food is overpriced and so are the... More

Check this spot out if you are visiting Encinitas around lunch or dinner time. Great food (try the fish tacos) and drinks with plenty of great beer options. Great modern atmosphere but my wife and I enjoyed sitting at the window seats watching people walk by...also there are great tables in back with a great romantic or fun feeling! The... More

Great beer, service, food! The place was packed but we found a spot in a small window at the outside bar. We got great, friendly service from our bartender. Love the place!

Restaurant is new and therefore attracted our attention. Had the steak and arugula bruschetta, the tuna tartare and a side of Brussel sprouts with bacon. The steak with balsamic vinegar was cooked as requested, but was a bit bland, the sprouts were dry but the tuna tartare with avocado was delicious. Service was okay.

Patio is great unless it's cold. Need more functional heaters. Ahi tartar and sweet pot fries were excellent.
