This evening I experienced one of the worst dinner services in recent memory, one that I might expect at a TGIF but not at a well-renown microbrewery chain like Karl Strauss. Throughout the dinner that my wife, son, and I had at the microbrewery there...More

Stopped for lunch after walking the coast line. Clean crisp atmosphere with outside seating. Nice tasting beer with lunch. All enjoyed their meals . I hadf a dish called the "Hot Mess". It was great, healthy and enjoyed. Easy laid back attentive staff.

Great beer selection and fresh to boot. Typical bar type food but upscale. Good service. Fun place to have beer and some small plates while sitting in the shade and cool beach weather.

We stopped in primarily for my husband to sample the craft beer. We decided to eat there because the food being served looked very delicious. We split the Brussels sprouts and bruschetta (both were extremely delicious) and a burger, which was also top notch. Many...More
