If I lived close to this place it would be my nightly hangout. Seems like most of the patrons are regulars, bartenders know many people by first name and whatnot.

Atmosphere: A very tiny place, maybe 8-9 seats at the bar and a bunch of small tables behind it. Lots of tables outside to sit at. A few TV's with games on, and just all in all a bunch of people shooting the shit drinking some beer and having some pub grub. I was there at noon, but I couldn't see the place getting too unruly at night.

Service: Such a small place it'd be hard to get bad service, as long as you're inside... but the food comes pretty fast, bartenders are pretty aware of when someone needs a refill etc.

Selection: Amazing. Of course, being in SD helps, but they have rare stuff too like a Stone 9th Anniv. when I was there. Also some rare bottles like Stone VE 05-07. They list what's on tap on their website too that helps before you go.

Food: Had hamburger, garlic fries and grilled cheese. They were all standard pub grub sorta quality. Not bad by any means, but not the best you'll find in town.

Value: Pints were really cheap, I think like 3.50, and you can get food for really cheap as well.
