They have a good, but not great beer selection that tends to be heavy on Belgian ales. So, if that's your thing, it's a great spot. They also have some good local beers on tap. Also, close to some great surf spots. Their Burgers are AWESOME. Seriously, some of the best, if not the best burgers I've had in San Diego County. Delicious french fries as well. It's pretty small and kind of dark. Pretty laid back atmosphere when I've been there.

Came here for a Russian River Framboise for a Cure event, and since it took place on a Monday night, we were lucky to walk in and find a table right away. I suspect this place gets very crowded and the seating is fairly limited. It's a pretty cramped space, with some of our chairs impeding the walkway for the servers. It was also very loud.

The beer was good, and they update their tap list daily. However, they need to update their god damn bottle list. I tried to order 3 different beers. All out of stock. Don't even bother asking if they have the Alpine beers listed on the menu. They won't. They do have about 300 bottles, including some Cantillon and some rare Eclipse, so you're bound to find something that is actually in stock.

The food was pretty good. Not like, mind-blowing or anything, but my Wagyu burger was pretty damn delicious. I wasn't impressed with the service, though. Towards the end of our meal, I ordered another bottle, and by the time they came back 10 minutes later to tell me they didn't have anymore, we were done and ready for the check. But whatever, I got the Russian River beer that I came for.

It is pricey, though.. With 2 beers and 2 entrees coming to around $70 with tip. I'd be back, but only if we ended up walking past it by chance.
