Stopped by here on a road trip from Portland down to San Diego. I certainly planned on stopping here, but boy am I glad I did.
The atmosphere is actually pretty cool. The bar is in the warehouse which is in an industrial park, but it's not cold feeling. More seating would be kind of nice, but I have no complaints whatsoever about the atmosphere.
The service is great. The workers are very friendly and know a lot about the beer offered. People involved with the brewing process are usually behind the bar or close by, too. I couldn't really ask for more.
The selection is amazing. They often have vintage and limited release bottles and have plenty to drink on tap. If you like Lost Abbey beer, the selection is great.
There is no food. You can order in at several places in the area I believe, though.
It is a bit pricey, but Lost Abbey itself is a bit pricey. The bar is reasonably priced given the beers it is serving.

The Lost Abbey is sort of your quintessential brewery location (at least in Southern California). A warehouse with a bar somewhat awkwardly crammed in around the brew space, with barrels up to the rafters. I've been there rarely just to stop by, frequently for special events, and somehow it always works. The selection of draft and bottle offerings frequently cover virtually the entire gamut and there's inevitably a few special selections available. I've always had reasonably prompt and courteous service. If you're a fan of the brewery, it's undoubtedly worth the stop if you're in the area (and if you're in the area, you're probably brewery or bar hopping).
