Stopped by for a few beers and some food on a Tuesday, early afternoon...

A: Kind of your typical family-restaurant-but-a-bar look/feel. Lots of families there eating, but lots of guys crowding the bar as well. Certainly not uncomfortable. VERY small deck with only 3-4 tables, if that.

Q+Selection: Plenty of their beers on tap... I think they had a few guest taps as well. I had a few of their beers, which were actually very tasty. The Islander IPA was great.

Service: Took awhile to get waited on at first (we were at a table), but once we did our waitress was very friendly and fairly prompt. No complaints.

F: Split a couple of appetizers... they were pretty tasty, and very reasonably priced (it was after 2 at that point, and they were on happy hour prices).

O: Nice spot on a really nice little "island". I'd go back if I had the chance... it's only 8.50 for a round trip ticket on the ferry to Coronado.

A very nice establishment, situated on beautiful Coronado Island. Hard to find if you don't pay attention to where you're going sometimes, but the building is very nice. Food is decent quality, but it's known mostly for it's beer. Had to go to the bar to get my beer, the waiter forgot to bring mine to me. Otherwise good experience.

Standard brew pub. Prices are a bit on the high side, but it is Coronado Island, so it's to be expected. Beers were middle of the road at best.

After living in SD for 36 years, I finally stopped in for a bite to eat and a couple of beers.

What do you expect for a lunch time vibe. This place reminds me of being on an island bungalow. This place is a quality establishment that offers quality craft beer and food. Well, it is in Coronado. The beer selection was very good. I had an Idiot IPA and 19th Anniversary IIPA. Good stuff. The vegetarian burger was also good to go.

I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Coronado.

Note: this is for the Imperial Beach location, which is not an option on BA yet. Little L-shaped place right across the street from the beach and a block from the pier... a tiny IB block. Seating is self-select, ordering done at the front counter. If crowded (went on a summer Friday and it was fine - farmers market on the pier also going on), get seats first then order. Small - in a good way - set of burgers, sandwiches, salads, pastas, apps. Full compliment of CBC brews on tap.... and 12s and 22s and growlers and 6-ers and...

Had the ceasar. That seems boring, but it is a benchmark test - ther dressing must be properly salty and lemony for me. It was. A bit thick, which I like. Also had the ceviche, which was very fresh and properly tart. Paired with the For Days Session IPA, because driving. Kid had a burger. That thing was pretty big, but it runs juicy so I'd flip it and eat it Hodad style (burger on top, garnish on bottom) to avoid soggy bun.

Food was good. So was beer. Several options other than the standards you can pick up at the store. Still, left a little underwhelmed. Especially with all the other players in the San Diego craft beer scene.
