Coronado brewing company is in an excellent setting, but in the end falls short of what one would consider a great place to drink a beer. expect many families and patrons who do not drink regularly; actually, think of the clientele at Applebee's.

atmosphere is similar in decor to an Olive Garden meeting a Chili's. a kind of quasi beach mexican feel with louvered windows out front and a general hue of deep red. tables and booths are throughout with a small bar area as one enters.

quality and service are decent. the waitstaff do not know much about beer and are pretty slow with service. the beers themselves are all served in tumblers, and none of the four styles that this BA tried were anything of note.

selection is good. ten or so styles with three seasonals and seven standard brews.

food is along the lines of an Applebee's or a deep bar menu; nothing special.

overall, this place feels like a chain, with a very non-local aura. very odd since, the location and nature of the establishment could be wonderful. if one is in the area, make a stop, but there are other better options in San Diego.

Convenient location to ferry landing and on main drag. Very small bar area, but managed to grab a beer while we were waiting for our table. Food was decent and service was fine. Ton of beer options, many unique and very good.

Took the ferry from downtown SD to Coronado, and it is a short 5 minute walk here. Large crowd here, with a wait list for tables. The bar is overpacked too as people are standing two deep. Ugh. Once we got a table things moved along. Numerous beers on draft, and at the start only the standard beers were offered, when I know there were others on draft.

The service was decent, but again the crowds caused the fast paced and harried service. The food we had was good, but the beers were all superb. Next time I will hit this at a slower time and enjoy a few at the bar.
