Food was wonderful and unique. Waitress very friendly and from Italy. She new the menu so well and ingredients. It made it hard to choose what to eat. Food was very flavorful. We love trying new foods and this place did not disappoint.

Our favorite burger place, intimate and friendly, great staff, food and extraordinary beer list! We love the Santana Burger but this time tried the fish taco and mini burgers. They always seem to have a burger special which we hope to try someday. There is indoor and outdoor seating.

Walked to this place from our hotel on our first night in La Jolla. This is a tiny locals hangout that is primarily a beer and burger place. They have mostly outdoor seating but did have portable heaters that helped. There is some indoor seating. Mostly locals sitting at the bar itself which is quite small. Bartender was nice. Food...

Probably had the best Imperial Stout I've found anywhere. Really liked the fish tacos and the service was fast, friendly, and funny. Made for a super lunch stop.

Forget the beer ( don't drink), I come here for the burgers. I come here at least every other month and my favorite burger is the whiskey river burger. All the burgers have been very tasty. Although the servers are friendly, service is slow, so, I usually just get food to go. Public House is my favorite place for hamburgers.

We love to go here for the fish and chips. The price is right. They have an excellent choice of beers which go very well with the fish and chips.

Nice local & craft beer selection. Good park & garlic fries. Costa Rican fish tacos and wagyu sliders were great after a long day traveling.

The biggest selection of beers from around the world I've ever seen at one place! Fast service and a huge selection make this a beer lover's paradise! Highly recommend for a late afternoon drink after hitting the beaches or hiking the trails around La Jolla!

Awesome burger, awesome beer, awesome location, awesome staff. Great experience overall! No kids menu but kids had the mac & cheese and chicken tenders off the app menu and were happy as clams. Hubby and I shared a beer flight to start so we knew which beers to have with our burger and everything was delicious. Highly recommend for an... More

I had read a few good reviews about this restaurant and was really craving a good burger, so off we went. We arrived around 5:30, so not too busy. No one was there to greet us, so we found our own table. It was really hot inside and the tables near the windows were reserved so we sat in the... More
